Military Says They’re Looking into Whether White Supremacist Gesture Was Flashed at Football Game

Spokespeople for the Army and Navy say the military is looking into whether cadets and midshipmen flashed apparent white supremacist hand gestures at the Army-Navy football game on Saturday.

“West Point is looking into the matter,” spokesman Lt. Col. Christopher Ophardt told The New York Times. “At this time we do not know the intent of the cadets.”

“We are aware and will be looking into it,” Naval Academy spokeswoman Commander Alana Garas told The Associated Press.

Some viewers interpreted a hand gesture featured at a broadcast to be a white supremacist symbol.
