A billboard put up in Alabama sparked national controversy for the similar message it carried to one posted in June of last year.

The billboard, displayed along I-59 near Birmingham, reads, “Diversity means chasing down the last white person.” Below the text, the phrase “#whitegenocide” is included in red letters.

The newly displayed sign comes just months after a similar billboard was posted nearby reading, “Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white.” 

The White Genocide Project has been known to use both of the phrases presented on the signs. Their website refers to them as “repeater phrases,” which members are encouraged to use regularly. 

A group called the League of the South reportedly financed the billboard posted in June. The League also funded several “Secede” billboards throughout the state.
