US Coast Guard member reassigned over 'white power' gestureA US Coast Guard member assigned to hurricane duty has been removed after being caught on television making a gesture which some viewers alleged was a white power symbol. “We are aware of the offensive video on Twitter — the Coast Guard has identified the member and removed him from the response,” the US Coast Guard said on its official Twitter account. “His actions do not reflect those of the United States Coast Guard,” one of the federal agencies responding to Hurricane Florence which has since weakened to a tropical storm and killed at least six people in the southeastern United States.
