Parents in Henrico County, Va., were outraged Easter Sunday when they discovered Easter eggs with racist messages had been left on neighborhood lawns.
The Huffington Post reports:
Jackie Smith said she and her husband, Brandon, were doing a traditional egg hunt in their front yard when they found an egg slightly different from the ones they hid for their 3-year-old son.
“My husband noticed the last Easter egg and i knew it wasn’t one that put out. We opened it and it’s got the white supremacist stuff in it,” she told WRIC-TV.
There wasn’t any candy in the egg, just a chilling message that read: “Diversity = white genocide” and “Mass immigration and forced assimilation of non-whites into our lands is genocide.”
Neighbor Jim McCarty was also shocked by the white supremacist message found in the colored Easter eggs.
“I was like, ‘Oh, one of the neighbors gave me an egg.’ And I opened it up, and it had this horrible message in it,” he told NBC12.com “I was stunned by it, on Easter Sunday. I wonder how many children picked these up and said, ‘Look what I got. Oh, I got hatred on Easter Sunday. What a great gift.'”
