Members of "White Pride" website Stormfront.org say there will be a rally in Duluth on March 3rd to protest a controversial advertising campaign meant to draw attention to racial prejudice in the Twin Ports area. (Hat tip to Perfect Duluth Day.)
The "Un-Fair" campaign, with the slogan "It's hard to see racism when your white," created a widespread backlash, with some critics saying the initiative unfairly targets whites.
The city's mayor says a handful of people have mangled the campaign's message but acknowledged that "a fair number of people in the community dislike the campaign’s message. They feel threatened or as though we’re blaming them," according to a report in the Duluth News-Tribune. Supporters say those who criticize the campaign are simply missing the message.
Some local residents launched a Facebook group to protest the campaign.
