NEW TIMES: WHO APPROVED THE "WHITE BOY" AND WHITE POWER APPAREL BOOTH AT THAT DAMN SHOW?


A number of people attending the Phoenix New Times and KUKQ's annual "That Damn Show" punk festival took to social media on Saturday night to denounce the decision of the event organizers to allow a vendor with white pride and white power apparel to set up a booth and sell their items.

The show featured a national anti-racist punk rock act, and attendees of the show were angered by the presence of a vendor selling "white boy" t shirts with confederate flag and Nazi motifs. The Phoenix New Times has made a reputation over the last decade for it's coverage of the immigrant movement and the racist opposition aligned against it. So we join those who are wondering, "How did this happen, and does the New Times support this vendor's presence at their event?"
