A political flyer circulated anonymously in a Detroit, Michigan suburb Friday promoted white candidates running for office, with a message that read, “Let’s get the blacks out.”

The flyer, according to Fox affiliate WJBK, included photos of politicians running for several local positions in Southfield, Michigan, including police chief and mayor. The message on the flyer read: “Let’s get the blacks out of Southfield in November,” according to the TV station.

The back of the flyer featured a picture of Trayvon Martin, the unarmed teenager who was killed in 2012 by volunteer neighborhood watchman George Zimmerman.

The message surrounding Martin’s picture read, “Zimmerman was right. We will never stop thugs like this,” according to the TV station.
