“White Flour” is a poem about a day in May 2007 when a group of Klu Klux Klan members rallying in Knoxville, Tenn., were counter-protested by a group of merrymakers, calling themselves the Coup Clutz Clowns. Cries of “White power!” were countered with cries of “White flour!” “White flowers!” Rather than returning hate for hate, this group drowned out hate with humor, brilliantly illustrating the non-violent actions that overpowered the voices of discrimination that day.
