West Point investigating 'white power' hand signs by cadetsThe US Military Academy at West point said Monday it is investigating the apparent display of “white power” hand gestures by cadets this weekend during the nationally televised annual Army-Navy football game. “The US Military Academy is fully committed to developing leaders of character who embody the Army values,” West Point Superintendent, Lieutenant General Darryl Williams, said in a statement. Before the game Saturday, which was attended by President Donald Trump, at least two West Point cadets and a US Naval Academy midshipman were seen holding out their hands in an inverted “OK” gesture that has become popular with white supremacist groups.
