A YouTube video that recently surfaced is costing a school principal his job.
Crescent Leadership Academy has removed Nicholas Dean from his position after a video showed him wearing rings associated with the Nazi movement and white nationalism. In the video Dean is pictured holding an American flag next to a statue of Robert E. Lee.
The former principal told NOLA.com/The Times-Picayune that he is pictured at the statue because he is a student of history and wanted to record the removal of the monument.
Some say the rings Dean wore - a German Iron Cross and a skull ring - are symbols of white nationalism.
