(Newser) – Things one might expect at the end of one's driveway: a mailbox, garbage cans, a newspaper. Things one does not: a plastic bag weighed down with a rock, containing an invite from the Ku Klux Klan. But the latter is what Atlanta-area homeowners found on Monday morning, prompting one Newton resident to call the sheriff's office, reports the Newton Citizen. There were apparently a few versions of the flier, which featured such lines as "Help Save Our Race," and images like that of a klansman atop a horse with a torch; each included a phone number and website.

The sheriff's deputy tells the Citizen that the distribution of the fliers isn't illegal; still, they "are being reviewed to make sure they don’t contain any inappropriate information or threats." He added that he isn't aware of any active KKK chapters in the area; the fliers "seem to be based out of North Carolina." CBS Atlanta called the North Carolina number listed, and spoke with a man who introduced himself as an imperial wizard. He claimed the fliers were handed out in nine states as "a recruitment drive" timed to "counteract Martin Luther King's birthday."

iIn respone to BRONTOSAURUS & troy705 When I got up this mourning, I didn't want tobe an a--hole, but you pushed my a--hole button. I lived in the Atlanta metro area for about fifteen years and yes I would come out of the store and find fliers about joining the klan. I did what probley every other person did with them, put them in the trash where they belong. I don't suppose either of you two nitwits know what states had the highest membership in the klan? I got news for both of you, it was Indiana, Illinoins and Ohio. These are Nothern States not Southern States. So for you to refer that by living in the south I belong to the klan, Georgia has a saying" I got a can of whoop-as- and anytime you want to open it, go ahead" And as for " be a member of the tea party and receive a klan membership". You two nitwits have shown who the true bigits are.

That is All Five (5) human races have black eye pupils, brown sh*t, red blood, white bones, & urine.. And yet, the bottom line, All Five (5) human races have the Same Feeling of LOVE!!! Hence no such superior over one another ever. So quit hating please!!
