Black Cadet Wrote Racial Slurs That Shook Air Force

The racist graffiti found written on whiteboards at the Air Force Academy caused nationwide outrage – and turned out to be a hoax.

On September 25, “Go home, n******,” was found written on whiteboards outside the dorm rooms of five African-American cadet candidates at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School in Colorado Springs.

But now, Air Force officials have confirmed that the perpetrator was, in fact, one of the alleged victims.

Unnamed sources told the Colorado Springs Gazette that the cadet candidate committed the act in a desperate attempt to get out of trouble for accusations of misconduct.
