MANCHESTER, N.H. (AP) - A community vigil is planned after signs saying “Diversity is a code word for genocide” was found outside two New Hampshire schools.

School officials say the signs were found last week outside the Middle School at Parkside and Webster Elementary School. Police are investigating.

School Superintendent Bolgen Vargas says he believes the signs are part of a larger campaign known as the “White Genocide Project.”

The group says on its website it believes diversity is a coordinated campaign of genocide against white people. It’s not clear who put up the signs; the website supported the action.

The vigil is scheduled from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday at Rock Rimmon Park. Organizers want to “bring attention to the position that such fear and racism will not be tolerated.”
