Alt-right movement posters caught the attention of people walking along Whyte Avenue Monday morning.
Devon Noir was heading to work when she noticed them. “The first one that I noticed was a poster that said ‘tired of anti-white propaganda?’ and then there’s another one that was around the corner of this circular poster-board that said ‘it’s only racist when white people do it’ and then had all these YouTube links to alt-right websites.”
Oh hell no. White supremacists are now posting trash along Whyte Ave.

This comes after three high-profile racists incidents in our city; the anti-Sikh posters at the U of A and racially-charged altercations caught on-video involving Bashir Mohamed and Jesse Lipscombe. The incidents’ sparked the #MakeItAwkward campaign, aimed to express frustration with those who display racism or discrimination.
Noir says being a woman of colour, she did not feel comfortable reporting it to police. (bw)
