EUGENE, OR (KPTV) -

A sign found hanging on an Interstate 5 overpass in Eugene sparked a debate about racism this week.

The banner, found handing on a pedestrian bridge over the freeway, says "Anti-racist is a code word for anti-white."

It wasn't immediately clear who put the sign there, but the regional NAACP president said the slogan is a sign of intolerance in our nation.

"If it was speaking against anything, it was speaking against multiculturalism and I think multiculturalism is a strength of our country," said Eric Richardson, of the NAACP.

The banner is now banned from the bridge, but not because of its controversial statement.

ODOT officials said the message may be distracting to drivers.

The transportation agency said safety is the top priority, and it often removes distracting messages from freeway overpasses.
