The boy’s father, Shawn White, has been incarcerated in jail since May 2015 for violation of probation related to a aggravated assault conviction in 2012.Before he was sent to Jail he shared multiple images on Facebook of of him displaying his “Pure Breed” and “White Pride” tattoos and wearing an Nazi “SS” sweatshirt.He also has a neck tattoo of “CWB” which may be a reference to the Crazy White Boy gang.
It's uncertain if the mother is with the father at this time, but she was also pictured holding a confederate flag smiling on social media also. A GoFundMe Account which was for young Keaton has recently been shut down so the site can investigate the mothers motives further.

The GoFundMe Account has raised almost $60,000 and the site said they want to make sure that the money is going to young Keaton when all said and done.
Three successive designs served as the official national flag of the Confederate States of America (the "Confederate States" or the "Confederacy") during its existence from 1861 to 1865.Since the end of the American Civil War, private and official use of the Confederacy's flags, and of flags with derivative designs, has continued under philosophical, political, cultural, and racial controversy in the United States. These include flags displayed in states; cities, towns and counties; schools, colleges and universities; private organizations and associations; and by individuals.The state flag of Mississippi features the Confederate army's battle flag in the canton, or upper left corner, the only current U.S. state flag to do so. The state flag of Georgiais very similar to the first national flag of the Confederacy, the "Stars and Bars"; a prior design incorporating the Confederate battle flag was in use from 1956 until 2001.
