West Point investigates cadets flashing “White Power” symbols

“West Point is looking into it and we do not know the intent of the cadets,” said Lt. Col. Christopher Ophardt, director of public affairs, in an email.

Military officials said they are looking into an incident Saturday in which students flashed what appeared to be white supremacist hand signs during televised activities before the Army-Navy football game.

At least one of the gestures resembled a white supremacist symbol described by the Southern Poverty Law Center as “the thumb and forefinger joined together in a circle, the remaining three fingers splayed out behind.”
