According to Al.com, the billboard reads “Diversity means chasing down the last white person” and includes the hashtag #whitegenοcιde.
This is not the first time that a pro-segregation billboard has appeared in the area.
Another billboard that read “Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white” appeared in 2013. These are both catchphrases for the White Gεnocide Project, a white sυpremacist organization. The group is opposed to integration and view taking a separatist approach as the key to fixing America’s “race problem.”
As Blacklikemoi reported late last year, the number of white supremacist groups saw a tremendous upsurge after Obama’s election.
According to the Southern Poverty Law Center, which tracks hate groups in the U.S., there are around 930 white supremacist groups in the country right now.
The number of hate groups has risen over the past decade, increasing from 602 hate groups in 2000.
“Anti-government “patriot” or “militia” groups have seen “spectacular, quite unprecedented growth” in recent years, Potok says. There were 194 such groups in 2000, a number that dropped to 149 by 2008, but after President Obama’s election, the number jumped to more than 1,000 by last year,” found Mark Potok of SPLC.
With regard to the current messaging, someone called the White Rabbit is responsible for posting propaganda relating to the racist “Mantra”, SPLC reports.
“The 221-word Mantra, written by a curmudgeonly segregationist with a history of drug abuse named Robert Whitaker, is an attack on multiculturalism that largely blames immigration for a ‘genocide’ facing white people. This notion has, apparently, motivated far-right extremists to commit heinous acts of violence, including the 2011 terrorist attack in Norway that left 77 people dead,” the group found.
