KKK Recruitment Literature Distributed In Virginia Neighborhood On Eve of MLK Day

More than just the Sunday paper was waiting for residents of in a Richmond-area neighborhood of Chester and the  Eastern Virginia Medical Campus Hospital where they were greeted with recruitment literature for a white supremacist group the KKK.

“I picked it up, and I looked at it, and my heart started beating faster. I said, ‘Now, what in the world?’, said Kathy Thomas.

She said the flyer, in a plastic bag, claims to be from the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.  The message of hate was delivered on the day before the Dr. Martin Luther King Holiday.

“Very disrespectful to his memory.” “This man stood up for equality for everybody … but I do understand that folks have their voice and their opinion. They can say what they’d like to say, but don’t force it on folks,” said Tony Hobbs.

This is bullshit” said one person who was at Children’s Hospital of the King’s Daughters to see her nephew. She asked not to be identified after finding the paper in a plastic baggie on her windshield.

“We’re trying to give peace, not stir it up. It’s just crazy. They need to stop doing it, or pick somewhere else, but preferably just stop doing it because this is crazy. I mean, we’re trying to make amends in this world.”
