A prep school in Dallas denounced one of its most infamous alumni Friday, white nationalist Richard Spencer.
As reported by the Dallas Morning News, Spencer sparked widespread outrage after invoking Hitler-inspired chants and prompting Nazi salutes at a Washington D.C., event last weekend.
In a statement released by St. Mark’s School of Texas, Headmaster David Dini called Spencer’s views hateful, divisive, racist and anti-Semitic.
“This has been deeply troubling and terribly upsetting to our whole school community,” Dini said. “At St. Mark’s, we reject racism and bigotry in all its forms and expressions. Our mission, values, and programs stand in direct opposition to these vulgar ideas.”
Spencer is scheduled to speak at Texas A&M University Dec. 6, and although thousands have signed a petition to cancel the event, a university spokesperson said the event will go on according to plan.
