A Virginia farm went viral after the owners posted a “Resist White Supremacy ” sign outside their premises.
The owners of Cox Farms, located in Centreville, Va., hung up the sign because they wanted to use their platform to speak out against injustice in the country, reports Fox 10.
The sign originally read “Rise & Resist,” but the owners changed it after passerbys asked them to be more specific on what they should be resisting.
“We’re not seeking to alienate folks who have different perspectives on tax reform or infrastructure spending. But when it comes to speaking out against systems of oppression and injustice, we see it as our moral responsibility to use our position of privilege and power, along with the tools of our trade and the platforms available to us, to engage visibly and actively in the fight for justice,” the owners wrote in a Facebook post. “Our roadside sign messages are one small way we do this.”
Many people over Facebook seemed to take the sign well, expressing support for the business and vowing to come and visit them out of thanks.
“We will always support you and you are doing the right thing. Resist has become a political term which is why you are getting flak,” one Facebook user wrote.
