An Easter egg hunt in Henrico County, Va. was interrupted on Sunday when the parents of a three-year-old son found an egg filled with racist notes.

“My husband noticed the last Easter egg and I knew it wasn’t one that put out,” Jackie Smith told WRIC. “We opened it and it’s got the white supremacist stuff in it.”

The piece paper inside the egg contained language including “diversity = white genocide” and “mass immigration and forced assimilation of non-whites into our lands is genocide.”

Smith and her husband, Brandon Smith, went around their neighborhood alerting other parents, and found several more eggs in other yards.

“We don’t want other kids around here who can read being like, ‘Hey mommy what’s the million man white march or what’s the genocide project?’ Most of us don’t want to explain genocide to our 6-year-olds,” Jackie Smith said.

According to WRIC, Henrico Police are investigating the incident.
