The "NO FEAR" Clothing Logos Are Actually Racist Symbols-Fiction!
Summary of eRumor:
An email makes reference to the numerous "NO FEAR" decals and clothing insignias and says that they are actually racist symbols from the crusader against racial equality, David Duke.
The successful visibility of NO FEAR is overwhelmingly the result of the NO FEAR label on sports clothing that has been popular since 1995. That company has nothing to do with David Duke or his organizations. The confusion comes from the fact that David Duke does lead a group called THE NATIONAL ORGANIZATION FOR EUROPEAN AMERICAN RIGHTS which is opposed to racial equality. He announced the formation of the group in January in Washington, D.C. Subsequently, however, the NO FEAR clothing company filed a lawsuit against David Duke and publicly denied having anything to do with him or his views.
A real example of the eRumor as it has appeared on the Internet:
This is very interesting to say the least.
I just picked up some interesting information regarding “No Fear.”
Perhaps you have seen this decal on automobile windows, etc.
Well, here in the Old Dominion, specifically in Chesterfield County, the administrators have designated April as Confederate Month. To make a long story short, David Duke was in town to speak at a shopping mall.
The upshot is, David Duke is the head of a group calling itself NO FEAR; it stands for “National Organization For European-American Rights.”
All this time I thought No Fear was just something young white people placed onto their vehicles, meaning they fear nothing because of their youth.
How wrong I was, so please pass this on so that more of our
people know what No Fear really means.
