A man who posted a racist and anti-white Facebook post claiming “white people are the reason for our problems” has been arrested.
The man, identified as 21-year-old Kevin White, allegedly posted the comment in the name of “Dana White” and posted it to Facebook on Friday, police said.
He is facing charges of inciting a riot and public violence.
According to police, White posted the message on Facebook to discuss the racial tensions in the South and asked others to take action against white people.
He also wrote that the “whites” are behind “all this chaos and strife,” and called them “the real reason for everything.”
The post has since been deleted.
Police said White was arrested and charged with two counts of inciting an act of violence and two counts each of threatening and malicious communication, as well as one count of disorderly conduct and two count of possession of marijuana.
He was booked into the Marion County Jail and is scheduled to appear in court on Feb. 13.
White was previously arrested for disturbing the peace and obstructing the public and is currently being held on a $5,000 bond, according to police.
