If you ask a black person what their cultural heritage is, they’ll probably tell you either “black” or “American.” You won’t hear things like Fulani, Igbo, Yoruba, or Hausa unless the person is right off the boat from West Africa. But if you ask a white person what their cultural heritage is, you get, to quote a well known comedian, a math equation: “I’m a third German. I’m a fourth Irish. I’m one-sixteenth Welsh and one-fortieth Native American for college applications.”
Given that this break down exists – whites don’t identify as white, they identify as “percentage of European Ethnic Group X” and “X blood quantum Cherokee for college,” you would think that “White Pride” would be an oddity. After all, most white people don’t even identify as white unless you mention “black people” or “Native Americans” in the same conversation. Nobody told the Ku Klux Klan this, though, since they’re still pitching White Pride, and this time, in the form of a billboard advertising their web-based radio station.
The new billboard is set up alongside an Arkansas Highway. The national director of The Knights Party, Thom Robb, confirmed that it was his group who sponsored the sign, according to the Harrison Daily Times.
Given we’re talking about “White” and “Knights,” my first thought was Through the Looking-Glass. Then I realized that the poor White Knight from that particular book is probably a lot smarter; I mean, he invented spiked anklets to protect his horse from sharks. You can’t compete with that genius. And the best these guys have ever done? They were born with a low melanin count.
Someone needs to try harder.
The billboard, advertising “White Pride Radio,” shows the sign of a forlorn-looking White girl holding a tiny puppy, alongside the words, “It’s NOT racist to (love) your people.”
Which is all well and good, but we already covered that whites aren’t really “a people.” They’re ethnic pie charts.
The billboard as features the radio station’s website address, along with the words “Harrison — love lives here.”
“Love” may live there, but blacks sure don’t; race riots chased all but one black person out of the town of Harrison more than a century ago. Today, there’s only 131 black residents, compared to the 35,624 ethnic pie charts that also call the city home.
This particular billboard is rather infamous, since this is the same billboard where someone set up a sign in 2013 promoting the “mantra” that “anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.”
Another sign, set up beneath it, advertised a Word Press blog that promoted Harrison as a town 98% white with “no bad neighborhoods.” It’s not clear who set up the website, which notes Harrison’s ties to Robb and anti-Semitic preacher Gerald L.K. smith. The owner of Harrison Signs no longer leases signs without posted contact information.
Harrison has a long list of hate groups; six others, including Kingdom Identity Ministries, operate out of the small city in Flyover Country, Ethnic Pie Chart Land. And the town is proud of it’s image as a racist hellhole, according to Mike Hallimore, the leader of Kingdom Identity Ministries: “Harrison has the image that it’s a white-racist town, and I’m glad the town has that image. It probably prevents some of the nonwhites from settling here
Actually, it’s probably the violent crime rate that keep people from moving there: According to City Data, Harrison, Arkansas has a higher violent crime rate in 2012 than the United States average — 270.2 verses 214.0. They also had a higher rate of property crime, which was nearly double the national average. In short, not a pleasant place to live.
But then, what did you expect from a place dominated by a failed, tribalist culture that places delusions of superiority on melanin count?
