Hope Mills, N.C. Town officials are considering adopting tougher rules for participation in parades in Hope Mills after an entry in the Independence Day parade prompted complaints.
Farmer Donnie Spell, who has driven his tractor in the Hope Mills parade for years, tacked a sign saying "White History Month Hug Wht Ppl" to a trailer filled with watermelons that he pulled down Main Street during Thursday's event.
Spell's tractor also featured a Confederate flag, which officials said he's flown before during the Independence Day parade.
His entry form for the parade lists only his antique tractors and a load of watermelons for sale.
"There was no mention of any type of signage," Town Manager John Ellis said. "At the lineup, our parks and recreation director saw it. The gentleman was asked to remove it. We thought it had been removed."
Spell couldn't be reached for comment Friday....

“We thought all the white people had been removed”....
It’s not a 2 way street because that’s not how political correctness works.
You are allowed to have black history month, Black Entertainment Television; blacks are allowed to say the N word without penalty, etc. It’s because whites are considered the oppressors and any minority is the oppressed. According to PC theology, the oppressed are allowed to say and do things which the oppressors are not allowed to say and do.
The oppressed have become the oppressors.
Yes, according to the liberals you can only be a racist if you are a member of a superior race.
Go ponder that.
We thought all the white people had been removed
That was “Whites Are History” month.
Critical race theory
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Critical race theory (CRT) is an academic discipline focused upon the application of critical theory, a critical examination of society and culture, to the intersection of race, law, and power. According to the UCLA School of Public Affairs:
CRT recognizes that racism is engrained in the fabric and system of the American society. The individual racist need not exist to note that institutional racism is pervasive in the dominant culture. This is the analytical lens that CRT uses in examining existing power structures. CRT identifies that these power structures are based on white privilege and white supremacy, which perpetuates the marginalization of people of color.
Legal scholar Roy L. Brooks has defined CRT as “a collection of critical stances against the existing legal order from a race-based point of view,” and says
it focuses on the various ways in which the received tradition in law adversely affects people of color not as individuals but as a group. Thus, CRT attempts to analyze law and legal traditions through the history, contemporary experiences, and racial sensibilities of racial minorities in this country. The question always lurking in the background of CRT is this: What would the legal landscape look like today if people of color were the decision-makers?
The movement is loosely unified by two common themes. First, CRT proposes that white supremacy and racial power are maintained over time, and in particular, that the law may play a role in this process. Second, CRT work has investigated the possibility of transforming the relationship between law and racial power, and more broadly, pursues a project of achieving racial emancipation and anti-subordination.
Appearing in U.S. law schools in the mid- to late 1980s, critical race theory began as a reaction to critical legal studies. Scholars like Derrick Bell applauded the focus of civil rights scholarship on race, but were deeply critical of civil rights scholars’ commitment to colorblindness and their focus on intentional discrimination, rather than a broader focus on the conditions of racial inequality. Likewise, scholars like Patricia Williams, Kimberlé Williams Crenshaw, and Mari Matsuda embraced the focus on the reproduction of hierarchy in critical legal studies, but criticized CLS scholars for failing to focus on racial domination and on the particular sources of racial oppression.
By 2002, over 20 US law schools and at least 3 foreign law schools offered critical race theory courses or classes which covered the issue centrally. Critical race theory is taught and innovated in the fields of education, political science, women’s studies, ethnic studies, and American studies.
“Payback” is the plan, and it will happen if American Caucasians allow it.
Next year he should have a “WHITE PRIDE” sign and a smaller
sign that says “If You Don’t Like It, Kiss My White Azz”
Guy is lucky he’s not a South African farmer.
In reading some comments about this online, it seems most people are pitching a fit over the display of the CSA battle flag... seems like the easier target... afterall, the only acceptable flag anymore is a rainbow flag.
It’s illegal to be white.
There’s no such thing as White History - it’s just History. The various components of the Grievance Cartel like to concoct these alternate histories to Keep Guilt Alive for fundraising purposes. :)
Next, the only acceptable cross anymore will be a rainbow cross.
“The question always lurking in the background of CRT is this: What would the legal landscape look like today if people of color were the decision-makers?”
What am I missing? Has this person never heard of Chicago, Detroit, Newark, etc? That’s what the legal landscape looks like. Courts and jails filled to overflowing because of lawlessness. Filth everwhere because of the lack of respect for others property. Drugs, murder, prostitution rampant because of lack of discipline. That’s the black legal landscape and this idiot would realize this if they weren’t educated in California.
Interesting. No attempt is made in the article to explain why the sign was offensive. As if that were self-evident.
Ridin’ for Dixie!
