Band director no longer at Ascension middle school after racial slur on social media
A band director at an Ascension Parish middle school who used a racial slur in a Facebook post last week, later removing it and saying he was using it in a sarcastic response to the Confederate monuments issue, is no longer employed at the school, an Ascension Parish School Board member said Wednesday.
Board member Troy Gautreau confirmed that Dutchtown Middle School band director Richard Bresowar “is no longer at the school.”
The Facebook post by Bresowar was in response to a May 3 post by Ascension Parish Councilman Daniel “Doc” Satterlee, who asked what people thought about a bill in the state House that would prevent New Orleans from removing Confederate war monuments.
Bresowar’s post, which he later removed, said, “Core support would be about a hundred percent in this town. Got to keep those n****** in their place let them know the South will rise again.”
