"Maybe we should change ‘rise and resist’ to ‘resist white supremacy’.." Lily Cox-Richard texted her "That way if someone takes a picture of one of our signs to post and says they are ‘saddened’ or ‘disappointed’ they will be explicitly revealing themselves as the racist that they are""Yeah" Aaron responded "that sounds good"On Friday afternoon down came "Rise & Resist" and up went "Resist White Supremacy" About an hour later a message from a woman named Rebecca whose Facebook profile was an image that read "TEAM USA" popped up in Cox Farm’s Facebook Messenger inbox: "Whatever your own personal agendas are none us want to see them on display at a place we once enjoyed going to for tradition It’s TRULY disappointing"The vitriol only intensified in the hours that followed which baffled Aaron Who other than a white supremacist would be offended by a message condemning white supremacy She also understood though that this is America in 2018 a time of such fierce division that even voicing opposition to the ugliest beliefs could be twisted or taken out of contextOn Saturday – in a Facebook post that has drawn more than 43000 reactions and nearly 15000 shares – she addressed the furor"Our little roadside signs have power" Aaron 36 began before explaining why they sometimes shared their opinions "Cox Farms is a small family-owned and family-operated business The five of us are not just business-owners; we are human beings members of the community and concerned citizens of this country We are also a family and our shared values and principles are central to our business" Aaron’s father and his brother whom she described as hippies started Cox Farms on a 40-acre plot near Herndon in 1972 Even in those early days she heard later people were sometimes offended by the family’s signs although those were often just off-color plays on their last name (this story’s author by the way is not related to the farmers) Eventually her dad and mom took over and the business evolved moved expandedTheir first experience with real controversy came in 2000 when conservative activists accused the farm of promoting gay rights because of two rainbow flags that flew over tunnels made of hay The flags hadn’t been bought for that reason but Aaron’s parents Gina and Eric learned what they symbolized and embraced the idea Aaron a lesbian had come out to them five years before the upheaval"At some point it looked like we could be facing a significant impact on our business" Aaron recalled but the family didn’t flinch and instead rallied supporters to their cause"It was a record-breaking season" she said "By far the best we’d ever had"Aaron whose partner is of mixed race also didn’t back down after the threat of a boycott three years ago over the Black Lives Matter poster she put in a window of their home which stands in the middle of the sprawling property"We’re not seeking to alienate folks who have different perspectives on tax reform or infrastructure spending" Aaron said in her recent Facebook post "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 Our roadside sign messages are one small way we do this"Her post went viral spreading rapidly online among both right- and left-leaning groups who then descended on the farm’s Facebook page to give either one- or five-star reviews that had nothing to do with kettle corn or apple-cider doughnutsFor Aaron though the blowback presented an opportunity To change people’s minds even by just a degree or two required communication that was respectful but honest And here was a chance to talk to people who disagreed with her – lots of them"Resist white supremacy is not an inclusive message" complained Patty Weston Meizlish who lives in Louisa Virginia "When you single out a group of people you exclude them This is a sad message""Yes generally speaking we are comfortable excluding white supremacists" responded Aaron who studied psychology at Smith College in Massachusetts "If you know some who would be interested in dialoguing with us please have them contact us"Shannon Lee Sibley from nearby Ashburn Virginia contended that she also supported fighting hate groups but wouldn’t spend her money at the farm because it would never post a "Blue Lives matter" sign in support of police"You’re right Shannon – we do not support ‘Blue Lives Matter’ police lives are already and by default valued in our society" she wrote "Black lives are not so we believe that a declaration that Black Lives Matter is necessary and important""So black supremacy is okay then" asked Lisa Lewis "This is not a message of love this is a message out to divide people even more I would never ever visit your farm because you try to force your views on your customers That is WRONG no matter what you say""Lisa when we talk about white supremacy we’re referring to a systemic racism that is much deeper and more pervasive than any individual or group could be" Aaron replied "Black people do not have the institutional power in our society to benefit from so-called ‘black supremacy’ It just doesn’t work like that"On Monday Aaron wrote a follow-up post thanking the thousands of people who had offered support (and who vastly outnumbered the critics) She dismissed the idea though that what the farm had done – making a statement that could potentially harm its business – was in any way "brave" She pointed instead to dozens of immigrant "dreamers" who had demonstrated against the threat of deportation at the US Capitol; to Chris Newman who has written about race and the challenges of farming in Virginia as a black man; to Eric Trammel who as a sophomore at Centreville High School was kicked out of class when he refused to stand for the Pledge of Allegiance as a form of protest"We are white people using our privilege and power to say something that should be obvious but clearly still needs to be said" she wrote "and there’s nothing brave about that"Then Aaron published the post and as it too was shared thousands of times she returned to the day’s business: planning for spring when the family farm will launch a new event at the corner market featuring pulled pork live music and root beer floatsAuthor information:John Woodrow Cox is a reporter on The Washington Post’s local enterprise teamHighway Patrol Lt Tom Iverson said troopers have not received results from the electronic control module commonly known as a "black box" that was inside the school busThe device was sent to an out-of-state facility for processing and could reveal such information as whether the bus suddenly applied the brakes in the seconds leading up to the accident Iverson said"We want to offer a formal conclusion so that folks know what happened" said Iverson chalking up the delay to factors "outside of our control"It has been nearly two months since an empty BNSF train collided with a school bus at a railroad crossing outside of Larimore killing 17-year-old Larimore High School senior Cassidy Sandstrom and 62-year-old bus driver and educator Max Danner Ten children aboard the bus were transported to Altru Hospital in Grand Forks three of whom were then airlifted to regional hospitalsThe railroad crossing was marked with crossbucks — a white cross bearing the words "railroad crossing" — and stop signsDanner’s autopsy was finalized this week but Dr Mark Koponen of the Grand Forks County Coroner’s Office declined to discuss its contents saying a press release from the Highway Patrol is expected in the next week or twoHe would only say that Danner died of his injuries and that his death was caused by the accidentArea residents have speculated Danner had a medical complication at the time of the accident but officials have not confirmed nor outright denied that suspicionIverson would not say what video footage taken from the front of the train showed "We weren’t smart enough to get our lighting set up in advance to take on the dark. 17, Kayode Fayemi, and bruises to the head and extremities,665 would be employed.000 vacancies earlier announced in the state’s public primary schools.
