KKK Advertising Itself As 'Kool Kids Klub' On Flyers In Upstate NY Neighborhood

Flyers advertising a Ku Klux Klan rally were found on driveways in an Upstate NY neighborhood, and local police are asking for the public's help to determine who put them there.

The Fulton County Sheriff's Office posted pictures of the flyers on Facebook. They were sealed inside plastic bags which had kitty litter in them to weigh them down.

"Please be aware that there are individuals going around representing themselves as members of the KKK," the Sheriff's Office warned residents. "Recent activity has them in Northville over night where they are leaving small bags containing informational pamphlets and kitty litter. This is NOT harmful and can be thrown out."

The fliers advertise a Klan Rally in Charlottsville, Virginia, in July. They refer to "cultural genocide of white people" and say, "The Kool Kids Klub wants you."

Police have asked for anyone with information, or a security camera that can show a license plate number of the people who distributed the fliers, to call the sheriff's office at 518-736-2100.

Police could cite possible suspects for littering.

It's not the first instance of Klan activity in Upstate NY this year. In February, residents in Fort Plain found Valentine's Day-themed Klan recruitment flyers telling white people to "love your own race."
