A former U.S. Senate candidate and white supremacist was reportedly part of a small group of protestors who disrupted a Wednesday press conference in Cincinnati on racial injustice.

Robert Ransdell, who made news in Sept. 2014 for U.S. Senate campaign signs that read “With Jews We Lose,” was at the press conference and, according to Cincinnati.com, was the most vocal of the protestors.

“How many decades are we going to accommodate the behavior of black criminals?” Ransdell shouted at one point.

Some of Ransdell’s fellow protestors carried signs with the message: “Diversity means chasing down the last white person, #whitegenocide.”

The press conference was held in advance of the MLB All-Star Game, set to take place at the city’s Great American Ball Park, according to the site. Local ministers had reportedly gathered to urge the MLB to speak out on behalf of the “Black Lives Matter” movement.
