Statement Regarding The Citadel Cadets Wearing Klu Klux Klan Style Hoods

This kind of behavior is absolutely unacceptable and these students should be expelled. They have dishonored The Citadel, the people of Charleston, and the people of South Carolina.

I have spoken to General Rosa and he has assured me that pending the outcome of the school’s investigation, whatever action that is within his power he will take, including expulsion.

Yet we cannot be satisfied by simply punishing this bad behavior. We must uproot it forever.

Flying the Confederate flag in Summerall Chapel damages our community, our spirit as a people and gives comfort to the students who committed this act. Taking it down from the inside of the chapel should be the first step towards moving forward. We must follow the flag’s removal from the chapel with substantive and progressive action so that students have mutual respect for one another.
