  • Navy Claims Sailor Staged Racial Hoax

"I proudly serve the Navy and this is what I'm receiving in return", Little wrote on his Facebook post.

The United States Navy claims that a sailor purposefully staged a racial hoax against himself, after claiming that his aircraft carrier bunk had been vandalized with racial slurs, reports Navy Times.

The sailor feigned ignorance in an interview with the Navy Times in November. "I constantly have to look who's giving me the side eye".

"A NCIS-supported command investigation following claims of racially-motivated vandalism aboard the (carrier) has determined that the alleged victim staged the incident himself", Hecht said in an email.

"The United States Navy does not tolerate racial discrimination of any form and the well-being of our Sailors is our top priority", Hecht said.

A seaman aboard the USS George H.W. Bush posted photos on his Facebook of an alleged racial slur.

But on Friday Navy spokesman Dave Hecht said that an investigation into the incident revealed inconsistencies in the sailor's account of what had happened.

Little denied staging the incident.

"And now I'm to be here looking like a bad guy for attention", Little wrote in a text message.

The Sailor received administrative actions and additional counseling and training, and will remain a member of the crew of the USS George H.W. Bush and will continue to perform his military duties, according to a Navy release. "I have nothing to gain from doing such an incident but I have everything to lose". Scuttle the fleet? Confine every sailor in the Navy to quarters? Five African-American Air Force cadets claimed that racist epithets had been written on several dorm messaging boards. The answer is simple: the only way people are going to stop faking racist incidents is by exposing the perpetrator to shame and ridicule.
