    HARRISON, Ark. (AP) - Harrison's mayor joined protesters near a billboard that carries a racist message to thank them for attempting to improve the community's image.

    A billboard went up Tuesday reading "Anti-Racist is a Code Word for Anti-White," enraging those trying to overcome Harrison's racist past. Mayor Jeff Crockett said yesterday it was important to show the world that the sign doesn't reflect the community's beliefs.
