West Point officers are investigating after a picture of 16 female cadets wearing uniform while raising their fists in an apparent 'Black Lives Matter' salute began circulating online.
The controversial image appears to violate strict codes on displaying political signs while in uniform or on military property, meaning the cadets could be expelled from the prestigious college, in upstate New York.
A spokesman for West Point confirmed that the women in the picture are part of the school's class of 2016, adding that 'officials are conducting an inquiry into the matter.'
