Oh, you fools!! Yet another relative of Keaton Jones, a boy whose emotional video about #bullying went viral this month, has been accused of #racist behaviour based on his #socialmedia posts.
Keaton gained overnight #internet #celebrity after his #mother, Kimberly #Jones, posted a video of of him talking about his middle-school bullies on Facebook. The tearful #video struck a #chord with #millions of viewers and dozens of celebrities, many of whom posted #shoutouts to Keaton on social media.
But past Facebook posts indicate that Shawn #White, a man who appears to be Keaton’s #father, was a member of the #AryanCircle – a #prison gang identified by the FBI as an “organised #whitesupremacist group”. A Facebook account seemingly run by Mr White contains numerous #photos and other posts connecting him to the #gang.
In one photo, Mr White can be seen posing with four #fingers extended and his #ring finger bent – a gesture identified by the Anti-Defamation League as an Aryan Circle hand sign. In another photo, Mr White can be seen posing next to a man with a swastika tattoo. One of Mr White’s own tattoos reads: “Pure Breed”. A Facebook page seemingly belonging to Shawn White made references to a white supremacist gang motto ( #Facebook #ShawnWhite)
Also on the Facebook account is an #image bearing the #words: “Thank you for being apart[sic] of this #family. Without you there is no us!! WE are the #Arayan”. The words are set over a background reading “#13” – a code for “AC” or “Aryan Circle,” according to the ADL.
A comment below another photo reads “MHICL”. According to the ADL, this is an abbreviation for the Aryan circle motto: “My Honor is called Loyalty." •
