— “Niggers,” the headline says on a picture of a woman wearing a shirt that says “No, it’s not racist!” in Spanish on a sign outside a grocery store in this sleepy southern Nevada town.
“It’s an easy way to get around,” said Kaitlyn Brannan, 27, who was wearing a blue blazer with a picture that says, “I’m not racist.”
Branan, a student at Roses High School, said she was just trying to get a feel for the town and how people react to her race.
She said people have been calling her out for wearing the shirt and asking her to explain herself.
When she wore the shirt, she said she wasn’t thinking about the person who said it, but instead what it symbolizes.
It’s a way of showing people you’re not racist, she explained.
The sign has become a symbol of resistance against the rising tide of anti-Semitic attacks and vandalism at American stores.
Some people in Roses are taking to social media to share pictures of the sign.
In one photo posted on Twitter by @HandsOffRoses, a woman is seen holding a sign reading, “NO, I AM NOT RACIST.”
In another photo posted by @RosesRoots, a man is seen wearing a Roses shirt and holding a banner saying, “This isn’t a race war.
We’re all equal.”
One Roses resident, who asked to remain anonymous, said he was a little worried that people would think the sign was racist.
He said he’s seen signs that say, “No whites allowed!” and “No Jews allowed!” but he said the Roses sign is one of the first times he has seen that phrase.
His fear is that the Rosys sign might be the tip of the iceberg.
This is a microcosm of what’s happening in the United States, said Jennifer Cavanaugh, a political scientist at the University of New Hampshire who has researched hate crimes.
The sign on the Rosés store was created in 2013 by a group of high school students who wanted to be visible to the wider community and draw attention to the ongoing problem of anti-“anti-Semitic” graffiti. “
But that doesn’t mean they don’t think about racism.”
The sign on the Rosés store was created in 2013 by a group of high school students who wanted to be visible to the wider community and draw attention to the ongoing problem of anti-“anti-Semitic” graffiti.
One of the students, Zachary Fuson, said they created the sign after noticing a white male in the grocery store wearing a hooded sweatshirt with the word “No” written in large white letters.
Fuson said they felt that it was important to bring attention to this issue and he was willing to pay the price for it.
After the sign went viral, Fusion said he got death threats.
As the year went on, Fusson said, people started posting their opinions on Twitter and Facebook.
They were calling him names and telling him to get the hell out of the town, he said.
Eventually, Fosion said people started asking him questions about the sign, which he has since removed.
A number of people in the community were supportive, he added.
But Fusus said that some people were upset that he posted the sign outside of the store, which was in the same neighborhood as Roses’ main grocery store.
Many people in town also feel that the sign has made Roses a victim of antiSemitism.
There’s this perception that we’re a melting pot,” Fusson said.
But Roses has been the target of racist graffiti before, he noted.
People in Rosies were surprised when Fusons post went viral.
Cavanaugh said that if people are upset about the incident, they should try to understand why the signs exist.
Roses High is in the middle of a large school district.
At the same time, many people in New Hampshire have heard about the signs, and some of them have even asked questions online.
