On Saturday, January 26, 2013, a group of citizens protested against hate and racism in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Specifically, the group protested against controversial racial signs on Beal Parkway, a busy highway in the city. The individuals participating in the event respect the First Amendment rights of every citizen, but reject any hate and racism that tear at the fabric of this great nation. For the past four years, it is unclear why our elected officials, local military commanders, business leaders, civil rights organizations, and community leaders in Okaloosa County have not denounced the racially toned signs. It appears that their silence means accepting the unacceptable. The event was organized by Nic Flagstar and Mikey Livid. It was a peaceful demonstration participated by at least 100 citizens of all races and ethnic backgrounds.
