An online petition demanding removal of an Arizona white nationalist’s “white supremacist” wall has gathered more than 2,500 signatures.
The white nationalist “white light” poster on the wall of the Arizona State Fair is one of many that have been taken down in recent months, including one that depicted a Confederate flag in a “blackface” costume.
The poster features the words “white man and white light” and says the sign is meant to show support for white people.
The Arizona Department of Transportation said in a statement that the poster violated state rules prohibiting “inappropriate, threatening, offensive, vulgar or indecent” material.
The sign was posted in June, and was removed by the Arizona Department, according to the petition.
The original poster was later arrested and charged with criminal mischief.
The petition asks the state of Arizona to allow the wall to stay up while the case is pending.
