Dallas school repudiates white nationalist alumnus

DALLAS (AP) — The exclusive Dallas boys’ prep school that Richard B. Spencer attended is denouncing the activities and ideas of its white-nationalist alumnus.

St. Mark’s School of Texas headmaster David Dini said Spencer’s activities have “been deeply troubling and terribly upsetting to our whole school community.” In his statement, Dini hailed other St. Mark’s alumni for “expressing their outrage and disgust” toward the Spencer’s activities and the ideas they promote.

Dini issued the statement after a Nov. 19 rally in Washington where Spencer shouted “Hail Trump! Hail our people! Hail victory!” as supporters raised their arms in Nazi salutes.

Other school alumni include folklorist/musicologist Alan Lomax, rock stars Steve Miller and Boz Scaggs, actors Tommy Lee Jones and Luke and Owen Wilson and investigative journalist Kurt Eichenwald.
