While leaders across the branches have
since the May 25 death
a black man, at the hands of po-
lice officers in Minneapolis, the Air
Force has stood out on the
Chief Master Sergeant of the Air Force
Kaleth O. Wright was the first member
of senior military leadership to speak
out publicly amid the national unrest.
He expressed concern for black mem-
bers of the Air Force and called for
change, including a review of the mili-
tary justice system.
"I am George Floyd
Castile, I am
Michael Brown, Iam Alton
Sterling, 1am Tamir Rice," Wright wrote
lengthy social media post.
"Just like most of the Black
so many others in our ranks lam
outraged at watching another Black man
die on television before our very eyes."
Wright retweeted Brown's message Fri-
day, as others also came out in support.
