KKK invites North Carolina town to 'white only' cross-burning
Police in the town of Reidsville, North Carolina are investigating flyers that were sent by the Ku Klux Klan to residents in the town about a cross-burning planned to happen this weekend. The KKK protested in the nearby town of Eden last week and several residents are disturbed by the recent activity of the group. Annie P. Pinnix and her husband were among the residents of Reidsville who received the flyer. “I’m a little bothered by it,” Pinnix said. The Winston-Salem Journal reports:
The Ku Klux Klan protested in Eden last week, and this week some of its members have been passing out fliers inviting people in Reidsville to a cross-burning.
The fliers were placed in and around Sherwood Drive, Linville Drive, Reids School Road and Poplar Street in the city.
Annie P. Pinnix and her husband were among the residents who received the flier.
“I’m a little bothered by it,” Pinnix said.
Pinnix said the flier was found in her and her neighbors’ driveways, rolled up like a newspaper and tied with a yellow rubber band. Reidsville Police Chief Edd Hunt confirmed other residents found the fliers in a similar fashion.
