The KKK is now ramping up their recruiting efforts around the Charlotte region with a new flyer campaign.
A new flyer that reads, “The KKK Wants You!” is put in plastic bags with rocks, then dropped at the doorsteps of homes. The flyers include a phone number to the hate group and racist literature on the back.

KKK members say the flyer isn’t meant to target anyone, but believes the new white race is becoming the new minority. @WGXAnews pic.twitter.com/z5OVB0RAt8

A few months ago, the klan tried to organize a “victory parade” to celebrate Donald Trump’s victory, but their permits were denied by the state.
The new fliers aren’t unique to the Charlotte region. Similar ones have been reported in Fayetteville and Greensboro, as well as in Maine, New York and Canada over the past few months.
In order to increase distribution, they have posted images of the flyers on their website, where they tell people to:
“Download and Pass them out all around the World…… White Pride World Wide!!!”
According to the KKK’s website, their “goal is to help restore America to a White Christian nation…This does not mean that we want to see anything bad happen to the darker races…we simply want to live separate from them… It is a simple fact that whenever these races try to integrate themselves into White society, that society is damaged immensely…perhaps even destroyed altogether. Everything that we do as Klan members is in furtherance of our ultimate goal. We are not evil; hateful people as our enemies would have you believe. We are common white people from all walks of life who have recognized the problems that our race is facing. We have chose to stand and fight for those things that we hold dear to our people.”
We also discovered this flyer on their website:
How do you feel about the KKK’s recruitment campaign?
Do you support their freedom of speech? When should it be considered a hate crime?
