The U.S. Military Academy announced yesterday (May 10th) that it had cleared 16 black female cadets of any wrongdoing for posing in ceremonial uniforms for a photo with their fists raised.

An official inquiry by West Point concluded that the photo didn’t violate any military regulations against expressing political opinions in uniform, and was only intended as a demonstration of unity and pride by the graduating cadets.

Some critics had charged that the raised fists were meant to show support for the Black Lives Matter movement.
