San Diego Marines Black Face Post
A video, which was originally posted on Snapchat and shared on Twitter, shows one of the Marines saying what sounds like the word “blackface,” followed by a racial slur.
The Marines have been identified as part of the 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing based at MCAS Miramar. The Marine whose SnapChat account was featured, Zach Highfield, said it was “a bad mistake. We had no intention to offend.”
He said the blackface was a charcoal mask used to clean pores.
A spokesperson for 3rd Marine Aircraft Wing said that USMC officials are aware of the post and have initiated an investigation.
