Racist graffiti at Air Force prep school written by apparent target

Screen-grab from video of Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria speaking to AFA cadets.

The racist slurs written on message boards of black students at the Air Force Academy Preparatory School, which prompted a viral video of superintendent Lt. Gen. Jay Silveria telling cadets to "get out" if they couldn't show "dignity and respect," were written by one of the supposed victims, per CNN.

The Academy said in a statement: "We can confirm that one of the cadet candidates who was allegedly targeted by racist remarks written outside their dorm room was actually responsible for the act... the individual admitted responsibility and this was validated by the investigation."
