Community leaders are bothered by Ku Klux Klan materials appearing in several area towns, including Iroquois County.
City/village elected officials are quick to report “it’s unwanted advertisement for the KKK.”
Small plastic bags filled with rice have been found lying on sidewalks and in drive-ways. Literature is included with information about the Ku Klux Klan. Those people reporting finding the material call it “trash and hateful advertising.”
The literature has been found in Clifton, Chebanse, Ashkum and Martinton.
The same hateful material has been reported in Kankakee County, in Bradley, Manteno and Kankakee. Last week, the KKK literature was also seen in parts of Will County and also in parts of Champaign and Vermilion counties.
