When Conservatives opine that racism is dead, maybe they should check out their own Easter eggs to see if a white supremacist has slipped in some very unseemly messages.

This is truly twisted:

The innocent children of Oakdale, California, and Henrico, Virginiagot more than they bargained for in their Easter Egg hunts this year–a heaping dose of paranoid racism. It appears that some sort of white supremacist group thought it would be neat to pepper some lawns with eggs that contained not delicious candy, but weird notes about how “Diversity=White Genocide,” and promoting some “Million White Man’s March” that already happened and only drew about 10 people.

The Southern Poverty Law Center has pointed out that this idea originated with Kyle Hunt, the dude in charge of this “White Man’s March” thing. He claims he is not “targeting children” of course, but, I suppose, adults who are really into Easter Egg hunts.

I'm totally speechless.

Can you help us out?
