COLONIAL HEIGHTS, Va. (WRIC) — “White Lives Matter” flyers were found in Colonial Heights and neighbors up and down Piedmont Avenue say they aren’t going to let the flyers, some call racist, break the close bond that they share with many of their neighbors of all races.
“It’s not welcome around here, not at all,” said Tiffanie Massengale, who lives on Piedmont Avenue.
An unwelcome message delivered in a small baggie to residents over the weekend.
“With all this racism around here, we don’t want that around here, we don’t need that.” said Massengale.
The flyers showed up on random front lawns, it advertised “White Lives Matter.” The website which advertised on the flyer links to images of a swastika, and says “we are the movement of Adolf Hitler.”
“Nah, you can’t do that, everybody is going to stick together, we’re not going to hate, we love no matter what,” said Massengale.
People who live on this street say the street is filled with people from all races and religions. They say this kind of organization has no place on Piedmont Avenue.
“Our neighbors look out for each other in general, it’s got to stop,” said Massengale.
8News did try to reach out to the creator of the website, but the only contact information listed was a P.O. box mailing address.
