Stuart James-I was walking my dog and came across this plate on the front of a GMC SUV. I stopped and thought, is this evidence of racism, white supremacy?
I then decided to do a bit of research. I came across a website validating my feelings about the tag and it’s meaning
Support Your Local White Boy
The introduction to the site reads:
“Dedicated to the preservation of our race, our country, and our way of life. I'm white male and proud. We must secure the existence of our people and a future for white children.”
I also found this picture of a couple wearing shirts with a similar message.
I am disturbed and disappointed to see evidence of racism and white supremacy thriving in a country where all are believed to be equal. This White Boy attitude demonstrates we are not making progress in accepting each other as human beings. The White Boy View shows us we have a long road to travel before we see the end to racial bias and prejudice…it shows we are defining ourselves by the color of our skin…refusing to recognize our DNA is the same. Too many of us are turning a blind eye as to what makes us human brothers and sisters.
We are seeing the ugly under belly of our nation exposed, the emergence of people who live with hate, prejudice and bias-people who are more than willing to live in a white only America…
And that is extremely disturbing, at least it is for me.
