This is probably what gave rise to the KKK headquartering just outside of town and they are here to this day. But, I don't think the KKK is responsible for this sign that was recently erected, and is the cause of some consternation here. Just when we thought we were making headway ridding ourselves of the scars from our past racism, someone has stirred the pot, again.
No one seems to know who is responsible for the sign, so a local sign maker is taking most of the heat. He refuses to say who hired him to paint the sign, because he wants to protect the owner's freedom of speech. Most people seem to think he should have refused to make the sign. I think I would have refused to make the sign.
I definitely think we should find out who paid for it, because I don't approve of anonymous signs (or, anonymous blog comments). Because I would like to ask that person what his sign means. It could be clearer, don't you think? Does it mean, "if you're against racism, you're against white people?" In that case, does it mean "if you're white, you're a racist?"
All I can say is that if you want to put up a sign in Harrison, you ought to learn how to say what you mean and not leaving people going, "Huh? What does that mean?"
What do you think the sign means?
