‘Get out!’: Lt General Rains Hell on Air Force Academy After Racist Messages Were Left on Black Cadets’ Rooms

Elizabeth Preza – RawStory:

“So just in case you’re unclear on where I stand on this topic, I’m going to leave you with my most important thought today,” he said. “If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect, then you need to get out. 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. And if you can’t treat someone from another race, or a different color of skin, with dignity and respect, than you need to get out.”

“If you can’t treat someone with dignity and respect, then get out,” Silveria repeated.

Some principles are non-negotiable. While much of American culture keeps its head firmly in the sand, unwilling to even see the problem, this general shows true leadership.
