A "white genocide" billboard recently appeared in Alabama and of course, it's sparked a big debate on social media networks.
According to AL.com, the billboard located along I-59 near Birmingham reads, "Diversity means chasing down the last white person," with the hashtag #WhiteGenocide" boldly written in red across the bottom. The message is reportedly a mantra commonly used by the White GeNOcide Project a white supremacist group that supports separatism. Although notable lawyer Raphael Lempkin is known for stating that genocide does not denote the demolition of a nation, white supremacists beg to differ. Many white supremacists feel the race is "under attack" as a result of the rise in multiculturalism.
Here's Lempkin's definition:
"Genocide does not necessarily mean the immediate destruction of a nation"... "It is intended to signify a coordinated plan of different actions aiming at the destruction of essential foundations of the life of national groups, with the aim of annihilating the groups themselves.The objectives of such a plan would be the disintegration of the political and social institutions, of culture, language, national feelings, religion, and the economic existence of national groups, and the destruction of the personal security, liberty, health, dignity, and even the lives of the individuals belonging to such groups."
