A billboard within the city limits of Birmingham — a city known for its front-line battles between blacks and whites during the civil rights era of the 1950s and 60s — has drawn the outrage of the mayor of a neighboring city.

The billboard, which is positioned along Interstate 20 headed into Leeds, Ala., reads, “Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.”

Leeds Mayor expressed his outrage earlier this week. “While this billboard is actually in Birmingham, the impression to passersby is that it is within our city limits,” Leeds Mayor David Miller said in a statement issued to local media. “The City of Leeds is a community with a long history of racial harmony, and wants to make it clear to all that it has no connection with this sign and categorically and unequivocally denounces the racist message portrayed on this billboard.”

The Southern Poverty Law Center, a leading civil rights legal organization, said the message originated in a 221-word statement written by white supremacist Robert Whitaker. Whitaker’s “Mantra” has inspired racial slαyings, including the 2011 mass slαying of 77 people in Norway.

The Mantra’s message, and now the billboard that promotes it, have been heavily promoted by Timothy Gallaher Murdock, who runs an online community for racists called White Rabbit Radio, according to rawstory.com

“The point of the message is when white people are called racist to give them something to say, something to say to defend themselves so they don’t just sit silently keep getting beaten over the head over and over again,” Murdock told WBRC on Monday. “You know everyone has come to the conclusion that racism is only in white countries, only in white people’s churches, houses and businesses, and white people are generally the only ones who face this charge generally on behalf of white anti-whites as well.”

Over the past year, similar billboards have also appeared in Knoxville, Tenn. and in Arkansas, according to published reports.

Mayor Miller said he was seeking more information about who put up the billboard.

  1. These people are so pitiful with their hatred that they are nothing but a joke.

  2. Your stupid signs do not scare us fool, you're the one who's scared. A few years ago you would come with your friends and put the sign up in the daytime. Today you only come out at nights like rats. Soon you will be seen only in a museum. kojo mambolo – http://www.compass360magazine.com

  3. If these ignorant people did not have some one to say that they are better than, they would be so bored and becoming so much more ignorant that they would kill theselves.Cocknockers.I feel so sorry for them that I could cry for them.

  4. Today they are better than blacks, tomorrow hispanics, next day it will be asians and when they run out of race & class; it will become white women. What ashame, when they feel the need to always be superior. There self exaltation, proves, not only is this an american problem but a world problem. When we look at the overall treatment of people of color and the rise of power, money and control in every country. Some day history will teach people the past was the past for many reason. "The past belong in the past for many reason." " If we can not learn from the past we are bound to repeat the past." The past is a lesson for our future to learn and grow from it.
