    Or so I thought.

    I certainly HOPE this winnows out virulent racists who actually threaten their fellow cadets.
    You are right, it VERY tough to get in.

    My neighbors kid got in but it wasn't easy and I think she got a slot after someone else did not make it.

    But, now that she's in, it's a good an education as anyones...

    The good thing about this AFA A-Hole, is that he's one less scumbag in the military.

    He probably just realized that he couldn't make it so decided to blow up the system on his way out.

    Kinda like a suicide bomber, take as many with you as possible.

    The next time a REAL racial event happens, people will have their doubts because of this douchebag.
    Thanks from Madeline

    My CC in the Army actually graduated from the Air Force Academy. Yes, believe it or not, you can commission into the Army upon graduation at the AFA (probably very few instances). He then attended CCC as an MP and that's how we met (when he entered our unit). He said that racism at his academy was non existent.

    Yes, it was a shitty thing to do. But this is a kid, and nobody died. I don't think it's necessary to write him off completely, for life.

    HIS actual racism is OK with you.

    Way to go.
