For the second time in less than a year, a billboard near Birmingham is carrying a racial message connected to a segregationist screed. 

Posted along I-59 near Springville in St. Clair county, the billboard says “Diversity means chasing down the last white person” and includes the hashtag #whitegenocide.

The billboard appears similar to one posted near Leeds in June 2013 which read “Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.” Though the billboard was within Birmingham city limits, Leeds mayor David Miller denounced that billboard’s “racist message” at the time due to its proximity to the city.

Both phrases are commonly used by the White Genocide Project, a group of white supremacist and separatist online activists. Their website refers to both slogans as “repeater phrases,” words and sentences activists are encouraged to use often.

The White Genocide Project is also connected to the “swarm,” and the groups follow the “Mantra,” written by a segregationist named Robert Whitaker.
