Lieutenant Colonel Andrew Rhodes, commander of the 1-8 Infantry – “Fighting Eagles“, has a message for all serving in the military: if you’re white, you’re the problem.

If the Twitter account wasn’t enough to convince you of his radical beliefs, his comment at a military function should do the job.

“If you’re a white male, you are part of the problem,” Rhodes reportedly said.

He also reportedly added that only .01 percent of racist accusations are false, and that he would always believe someone coming forward about an uncomfortable situation.

The story began circulating on social media, with one Instagram post catching some important attention.

“Looks like Fort Carson got themselves a real gem of an unbiased commander,” the post reads. “I hope you’re not white or ever accused of anything while you’re in his command. You’re already guilty and you didn’t even know it!”
