BIRMINGHAM, AL (WBRC) -

The mayor of Leeds is one person we know of that is angry about a billboard near his city. People traveling westbound on I-20 near the Leeds exit can see the billboard, which reads "anti-racist is a code word for anti-white."

The message is one promoted by a website called whiterabbitradio.net. The website's founder, Tim Murdock, told Fox6 by phone from Chicago that he does not know who paid for the billboard, but he explained the message.

"The point of the message is when white people are called racist to give them something to say, something to say to defend themselves so they don't just sit silently keep getting beaten over the head over and over again. You know everyone has come to the conclusion that racism is only in white countries, only in white people's churches, houses and businesses, and white people are generally the only ones who face this charge generally on behalf of white anti-whites as well."

Leeds mayor David Miller tells Fox6 he is trying to find out who is behind the sign, but he's not happy about the message or its location near his integrated city.
