Eunice, La (NBC33) — Someone is passing out hateful flyers in the Acadiana area, telling Eunice residents the KKK is "awake."
This flier was passed out in one predominantly black neighborhood over the weekend.
According to police, the flyers were placed on vehicles in several parking lots and thrown into driveways in several residential neighborhoods.
Authorities say it’s not illegal to pass them out since no one was threatened.
The flyer has the name “Loyal White Knights,” and phone numbers on the bottom.
It appears that whoever is responsible for making the flyers and passing them around is looking to recruit members.
According to the website listed on the flyer, they are “the largest and most active Klan in America.”
The website also says: “We hate drugs, homosexuality, abortion, and race-mixing because these things go against God's law and they are destroying all white nations.”
State Police and the FBI have the fliers. The individuals were detained and questioned then released after this incident.
