Black Female Cadets Under Investigation After Photo Of ‘Raised Fists’ Goes Viral


Roland Martin talks to Mary Tobin, a 2003 graduate of West Point, about the investigation underway of 16 black women whose raised fists in a photo has caused national outrage.

“These women are dismayed. They already have the pressure of final exams, but in a few weeks they’ll go out into the military and into war and now they have the added pressure. These young ladies, their connection to that symbol means unity and pride.”
