Residents in a Richmond, Va., neighborhood are outraged after finding hate-filled, racist notes hidden inside plastic Easter eggs in their yards.
The Smiths were having an egg hunt with their 3-year-old son Sunday afternoon at their home in West End when they came across the notes, a local ABC affiliate reported.
"My husband noticed the last Easter egg, and I knew it wasn't one that we put out," Jackie Smith told the station.
Inside the egg was a note titled, " 'Diversity' = White Genocide," with a message that read, "Mass immigration and forced assimilation of non-whites into our lands is genocide."
The note also provided links to WhiteManMarch.com and WhiteGenocideProject.com.
"I think it's absurd," said husband Brandon Smith, who went door-to-door to alert other parents of the notes. Several more were found in people's yards.
"We don't want other kids around here who can read being like, 'Hey mommy what's the million man white march or what's the genocide project?' Most of us don't want to explain genocide to our 6-year-olds," Mrs. Smith told the station.
Henrico Police are investigating the incident, as well as the websites involved.
The White Man March is an online event scheduled for the third Saturday of every month, and its purpose is to show "that White people are united in their love for their race and in their opposition to its destruction," its website said.
The White Genocide Project aims "to bring awareness to the planet about the ongoing program of genocide against White people," that group's website said.
