Allegedly a North Carolina Ku Klux Klan group mistakenly left recruitment fliers in a predominately black neighborhood in Florida as part of their recruitment efforts. In a report from WFTV, residents in New Smryna Beach came across hundreds of fliers with the words “Our Race Is Our Nation” and a symbol of a hooded klansman.
“You say this was a recruiting effort; however, your group targeted a predominately black neighborhood,” WFTV’s Ryan Hughes told KKK leader Robert Jones in a telephone interview.
“Well, we don’t have no way of judging where we’re putting the fliers at,” Jones said.
Residents of the neighborhood weren’t too happy when they noticed the fliers. One resident, Ericka Blount, has a few words for the group.
“Stay away from our neighborhood. We live together here. All different races,” Blount said.
