Possible ‘White Power’ Hand Signs at Army-Navy Game Probed
Officials at two military academies say the schools are looking into hand signs flashed by students during the Army-Navy football game that can be associated with “white power."
Officials tell The Wall Street Journal that cadets at West Point and midshipmen at the Naval Academy in the stands both appeared to display the sign during Saturday's broadcast.
Spokespeople say school officials are trying to determine what the hand signals were meant to convey.
The hand sign is similar to the one often used to indicate “OK,” but the Anti-Defamation League says it has lately been used as an extremist meme.
