FILE - Kyle Bibby poses for a picture at his home in Jersey City, N.J., Wednesday, Nov. 24, 2021. Bibby, a Naval Academy graduate who served for six years in the Marine Corps as an infantry officer, said those who characterize white supremacism only as extreme behavior miss the insidious damage that casual racism and discriminatory attitudes can inflict. "We view white supremacy as like, you know, somebody's got the cross in the truck and they're rolling to your crib to go burn it," said Bibby, who co-founded the Black Veterans Project, which advocates for racial justice in the armed services. But the cuts are much more subtle, he said. (AP Photo/Seth Wenig, File)

Puzzled, Collier asked why the Marine held it for so long. "He said, 'Sir, I just have to come clean with something. ... We never see Black officers. We never see people like you and it makes me extraordinarily proud,'" Collier recalls. (AP Photo/Cliff Owen, File)
