KKK Recruiting In Black Florida Neighborhood
Resident Tim Washington said he was headed to work Monday morning when something stopped him in his tracks.
“(I) saw that it was a piece of paper on the ground and it had hate stuff on it,” Washington said.
Washington was the recipient of a flier from a North Carolina Ku Klux Klan group seen during an August cross-burning.
Officials said that group sent the fliers to a Florida KKK group and leaders dropped hundreds of them in a New Smyrna Beach neighborhood in an effort to recruit new members…
The flier reads, “Our race is our nation,” and includes a picture of a member dressed in the distinctive KKK attire…
KKK Leader Robert Jones said over the phone that members dropped the fliers at night, so they had no idea who lived in the neighborhood.
“You say this was a recruiting effort; however, your group targeted a predominately black neighborhood,” asked Channel 9’s Ryan Hughes.
“Well, we don’t have no way of judging where we’re putting the fliers at,” Jones said.
How about asking? Also, how about not using double negatives?
