The non-whites who will come to replace us will recreate the countries they have fled.”The group also has a white supremacist website on-line.The racist flyer appears to be referencing Census data claiming the U.S. will be majority non-white by 2045.North Bergen Mayor and State Sen. Nicholas Sacco denounced the flyer in a statement, and said it is under investigation.“North Bergen residents have always been proud of our township’s diversity, which makes this kind of rhetoric extremely troubling,” Sacco said. “The views expressed in this flier have no place in our community and I am hopeful that the North Bergen Police Department will find whoever is distributing it.”For more news in Hudson County, New Jersey, keep reading ×last_img read more
