summary
Racist messages written on a whiteboard at the Air Force Academy in September that made national news and inspired an impassioned speech from a lieutenant general were written by a student supposedly victimized by the messages. Messages that read “Go home n*****” were discovered drawn on whiteboards outside the rooms of African-American cadet candidates at the Air Force Academy late September.
