A candidate for Congress is under fire for a campaign sign highlighting his hope of making “American White Again.”
The sign, which appears over Highway 411 near Benton, Tenn., was placed there by independent candidate, Rick Tyler, who is currently running for Tennessee’s 3rd congressional district seat, WRCB-TV reported.
According to WRCB-TV, his campaign posted another sign that has a picture of the White House surrounded by Confederate flags and a quote from Martin Luther King Jr.’s I Have A Dream speech.
