With his tearful video that described his life as a bullied child, Keaton Jones captured the hearts of people across the country. But then, the backlash began.
As Dearly previously reported, Keaton’s mother, Kimberly Jones, became the first target of the anger when several of her photos popped up — one of her with a Confederate flag, another with one of her sons holding an American Flag standing by another child with a Confederate flag in his hand.

Kimberly defended the photos on “Good Morning America,” saying her family isn’t racist and explaining that the pictures were meant to be “extreme” and “ironic and funny.”
“I feel like anybody who wants to take the time to ask anybody who I am or even troll through some other pictures, I mean I feel like we’re not racist. I mean, people that know us, know us.”
Now the questions about Keaton’s family’s racism are swirling once again, but this time his father, Shawn White, is the one being put under the microscope.
As TMZ reports, the bullied boy’s dad has white supremacist propaganda scattered throughout his social media posts.
His Facebook page featured the sayings “HOLY F**K I LOVE BEING WHITE,” “Keep Calm and be White Pride,” and “Aryan Pride” that were posted in 2014.
Keaton’s dad also has a tattoo on his neck with the initials “CWB” which is an abbreviation commonly used for a gang called Crazy White Boy.
According to TMZ, White’s criminal record has also been publicized; he was put behind bars in the Knox County Jail in 2015 for a probation violation related to a 2012 aggravated assault conviction. He’s set to be released from the Tennessee jail in 2018.
It’s not known what type of relationship Keaton and his father have, and there were no marriage records found for Kimberly and White, according to TMZ.
