Last month, residents of more than one Topeka neighborhood woke to find fliers from the Ku Klux Klan at their front door. Two fliers were placed in plastic zip lock bags and weighted down by rocks. The fliers are attributed to the Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. One obviously dated reads, “Warning for White Americans” at the top. It states, “There has been a significant increase in the last few years of violent black on white crime.” It list six incidences of violent crimes the flier claims Black people committed on White people in 2013 and refers to the Trayvon Martin incident as occurring last year. That incident occurred in 2012.
The second flyer reads “Traditionalist American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan” at the top, accompanied with an image of a person in a white hood and robe. Below the image the flyer reads “Neighborhood Watch” and “You can sleep tonight knowing the Klan is awake!”
Both fliers included a phone number and website address.
