Looks like we’ve got ourselves an old-fashioned race hoax hustle, boys.
I haven’t seen one of these in the national media since… well, since Jussie Smollett.
Cozy wave? This is like watching the whole trilogy of Star Wars with my cousins on Christmas break.
Finally, something normal.
The US Navy’s top admiral has condemned two new racist incidents involving hate symbols on warships, which sources said included a noose that was left on a black sailor’s bed.
The incidents, which occurred in recent weeks, underscore deep concerns about racism in the ranks.
The cases come as Pentagon leaders face growing pressure to show progress in combating extremism after current and former military service members were found to have participated in the siege of the US Capitol on 6 January.
In one case being investigated by the Naval Criminal Investigative Service, hate speech graffiti was discovered in a bathroom aboard the USS Carl Vinson aircraft carrier. NCIS is also investigating the noose incident aboard the guided-missile cruiser USS Lake Champlain. Two officials who spoke on condition of anonymity confirmed the details.
While he did not give details of the incidents, Chief of Naval Operations Admiral Mike Gilday cautioned in a message to the fleet on Tuesday that racial divisions in the ranks cut at the military’s ability to protect the country.
I’m sure it will turn out that the bathroom graffiti, which is now international news, will turn out to be an evil inbred southern hick from a trailer park, for the first time ever.
We’ll circle back on that one.
In the meanwhile, did you know the first something of the something?
