Residents Concerned About Pro-HB2 KKK Recruitment Flyers
Residents in Roxboro, NC woke up Wednesday morning with flyers in their yard from the local KKK chapter, using HB 2 to recruit new members. The flyers have bigoted and incendiary remarks about the LGBT community, and urge those who support HB 2 to join the KKK.
A disturbing reminder that the fight for justice and equality is far from over.
Rita Wilhelm found a membership application for the Loyal White Knights of the KKK in her front lawn Wednesday morning.
"It was laying in the yard -- rolled up like a scroll. I was just sad. It made me angry because I thought we had got past all this," Wilhelm said. "I walked all up and down my street and around the block picking them up.
Loyal White Knights supports House Bill 2 - also known as the Transgender Bathroom Bill
HB2 was designed to block a Charlotte non-discrimination ordinance, part of which allowed transgender people to use bathrooms and locker rooms of the gender they identify with. The state law requires people to use the restroom according to their biological sex listed on their birth certificate in government buildings, schools, and universities.
