We have a hate crime group in Mtn View at Fiddlers Valley RV Park WIld Horse theatre - Lucy Jackson is the owner and she is the sec of White Revolution - the #2 hate crimes group in the U.S. Her son Billy Roper is leader of the group and running for Ark Gov as a write in. See the Article in Sundays Ark Dem Gazette. They will be meeting again during Mtns Music and Motorcyles.... if there is an outbreak of racist violence in Mtn View our city will be done. No tourists will want to come here. What is the chamber thinking? Oh wait - I think one of their members is a members as White Revolution. Yah Think?

Is this really surprising? I could envision many wearing a white pointy hat in Mountain View, along with a white veil covering their faces.

Back in the 1950's a man by the name of Harold Sherman, a white supremist, moved here from Ohio or somewhere and wanted to make blanchard springs an all white resort by the name of Land of the Crossbow. He promoted stone co as all white which has lead the issues that we are still facing - that we are all racists. We are not. In fact most people born here are of Native American and Irish/Scot descent, with some black in them. But you are right - we are still fighting the racism that Sherman started as being all that we are about - with people moving here from Mississippi and Lousiana and other places because we have no "N-----s" which they blantantly and openly say. This hate crime group is #2 on the nations watch list. White Revolution.com and unfortunately seems supported by our chamber of commerce - people from off.

This is so disturbing. I found Billy Roper and his group. In order to be in their group you have to be 100% European blood line. WHO has that? I'm guessing he doesn't even have that. All of my family is European/Native American (As Native stated) So my question is: Are we in danger those of us who have Irish, German, 1/8th Cherokee? Because we aren't "PURE" I didn't see how Lucy was involved could you please send info on this.

FYI If you can't meet the requirements of the 100% European blood line, then you can be a supporter for the low low price of $50 (How thoughtful)

This is very disturbing! How is the Chamber of Commerce supporting a group like this? I find that pretty much impossible to believe.
As far as the coming here to escape "n...", I have heard that too and it turns my stomach!!! I heard it in Mtn. Home from the people from Michigan and Ohio, and I hear it from others here now. Makes me sick. How is it that racism is still an issue even after all these years? Guess all human beings don't grow at the same rate...
Thank you to whoever posted this info though, we need to know who is here even if we don't like it.

You can go to the SOUTHERN POVERTY LAW CENTER for information on all hate groups and where they are located.

Southern Poverty Law Center & the Anti-Defamation League are both watching this group. The citizens of Stone County need to know and pay attention as well. If word gets out that the area is some kind of racist haven then you can kiss those tourism dollars goodbye.

Since when have you seen inter-racial couples walking down the streets in Mountain View on a honeymoon vacation, as tourists? When was the last time you saw an African American couple on vacation as tourists in Mountain View, Arkansas? Get real! Racism is alive and well in Mountain View, Arkansas!

There's a difference between what you describe above and an outright hate group. I have no use for any kind of racism, but hate groups are especially distressing. We need to be aware of them. General population trends and what you see on the streets are not things I can do much about, other than live my lfe the best way I know how, but organized hate and racism...damn right I can do something about it.
"What" from Alexander, AR: you appear to be the same person that butts into everyone's conversations (from a wide but now predictable variety of locations) so you can badmouth Mtn. View. If I get the expected response to this part of the message I guess that means I'm right about that.

What if our population was 50% black. Would you be here? That is one of the top 3 reason people move here. Just a fact.

We are from Little Rock and some of your tourist that
do come and spend money.

Do we need to start changing our weekend destinations??

I feel like if we come up and attend a show we may be
in an FBI raid and be accused of hate crimes due to
just being in this White Horse Theater for a show...

Is this the case?

No everything is cool here. The truth is poeple in stone county can not have an opinion on race as we have not live with poeple of other colours. If we have an opinion it most likely came from heresay or TV. This is a nice place to raise a family and crime is very low. But as they say it is a beautiful place to starve to death as opurtunity's are limited to generate revenue. So if you move here you should have some cash put back.

You can always spend your money as a tourist in down town Memphis and experience some real, genuine racism, not the pretend kind you find here. After that, even the worst that could happen in Mountain View would seem like a church social in comparison.

We should all see people as Jesus does. He doesnt look at the outside, just the inside. Moses went to Etheopia to get his wife and when he returned to his country his family was bickering and Jesus chastized them because he was well please with Moses wife. I know I didnt spell that right, oh well.

Nice sentiment. But Jesus' and Moses' time in the Bible were separated by a few years.
To those who would stay away from M.V. because of this thread, don't. Some of the local prejudice comes from lack of experience with other races. You should encourage people of colour to visit Stone County often, maybe help them to relocate to the area so that the locals can learn from them.

That is what I hoped I'd hear from someone from there. We do enjoy coming and spending some of our weekends there and being laid back for the short time we are there.

Just so you know...I picked up a Stone County Citizen paper today just to see what was in there. There were several "news" articles* about various things by one person in particular, and in one picture and article she was touting the Fiddler's Valley resort/RV park and the Wild Horse theater. Not the person named above, someone else. I'm not one to name names so you'll have to see for yourself. It would appear that there is some connection between that paper (NOT the Leader) and FV rv park, and through guilt-by-association, that white supremicist group.
Just so we see all the pieces of the puzzle, I offer this FYI.

*By journalistic standards, not exactly up to snuff, hence the "" marks.
