Plastic eggs in a neighborhood in southern Virginia contained notes described as racist.

Residents of a Henrico neighborhood are upset after finding Easter eggs containing racist notes on their lawns.

Residents found plastic eggs Sunday morning containing typed paper notes that compared diversity to "white genocide," and listed links to two websites.

Jim McCarty says he was stunned to find the messages on Easter.

Brandon Smith says he's disturbed that his young son could have found one of the eggs.

Henrico police are investigating the incident.
