The caption which reads "No Race Suicide Here" most likely refers to the concept of "Race Suicide" which is defined as: 1) the voluntary failure of the members of a race or people to have a number of children sufficient to keep the birth rate equal to the death rate, 2) the extinction of a racial or ethnic population that tends to result when, through the unwillingness or forbearance of its members to have children, the birthrate falls below the death rate.
