USAFA Lt. Gen. Silveria Addresses Cadets About Racism Incident - Calls for Civil Discourse

Lt. Gen. Jay B. Silveria, superintendent of the U.S. Air Force Academy, addressed cadets on Thursday in a powerful speech about treating one another with “dignity and respect” after racial slurs were written outside five black cadet candidates’ dorm rooms.

"If you can't treat someone from another gender, whether that's a man or a woman, with dignity and respect, then you need to get out. If you demean someone in any way, then you need to get out. If you can't treat someone from another race with dignity and respect, then you need to get out."
