White Pride Shown with "Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white" banner left on I-5 Bridge in Eugene, OR.
Some call banner hanging on I-5 bridge in Eugene racist
EUGENE — A banner hung over an Interstate 5 bridge has upset Eugene community leaders who say the sign is racist. The banner reads "Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white" and includes a Celtic symbol co-opted by the white supremacist movement in the U.S.
KVAL-TV reports the sign has drawn criticism from the city's Equity and Human Rights program manager, Michael Kinnison, who says he's "appalled" the sign went up.
Hanging a banner from the bridge is illegal, no matter the content.
The Community Alliance of Lane County is planning a demonstration in response to the sign.
