POLK COUNTY, TN - A campaign billboard in Tennessee for a man running for Congress, appears to be pretty black and white.  The sign reads "Make America White Again."

U.S. House of Representatives candidate, Rick Tyler is the man behind the message.  He says he wants people to think back to life in the 1960s, citing television shows "Leave It To Beaver" and "Ozzie and Harriet."

"I don't know how many millions of us there are but, I believe there are a lot of us; we believe that was a better America than the America we're living in today," Tyler claims.

Further, the Independent Party candidate and pastor says back then people didn't have to worry about crime, Muslim sleeper cells, and mass immigration.

Someone has already taken the sign down, but Tyler plans to put it back up.
