Homeowners Outraged After Ku Klux Klan Members Leave ‘Get Out The Vote’ Fliers Across Alabama Town

Some Alabama homeowners are outraged after the Ku Klux Klan left fliers around their town. The hate group is trying to encourage people to go vote in the election and join the Klan.

Several people who live in St. Charles Place neighborhood of Madison tell KTLA sister station WHNT they found baggies full of rocks and paper in their driveway Sunday morning.

The message said in part, “Black Lives Matter Black Panthers are telling followers to kill white people and police officers.”

Many in the neighborhood said they were disgusted, but didn’t want to go on camera for fear of retaliation.

“This is pretty standard tactics for that particular Klan group. They’ve been fliering all over the sate. They were in Wichita last weekend. This is a pretty common practice for Loyal White Knights,” said Heidi Beirich with the Southern Poverty Law Center.

Beirich tracks hate groups for the Southern Poverty Law Center in Montgomery.

“It breaks my heart that people receive this kind of material, but unfortunately, this is the Klan using its First Amendment rights. So, they have every ability to do this.”

Beirich tells WHNT her agency doesn’t know of any violent situation involving the Klan.

There are eight Ku Klux Klan organizations in Alabama. the Southern Poverty Law Center estimates there are up to 6,000 Klan members nationwide.

The Black Panther Party Pens Heartfelt Letter To Afeni Shakur 

The Black Panthers wrote this touching letter after the passing of Black activist, organizer & fearless leader, Afeni Shakur Davis.

We are deeply saddened by the passing of our sister Afeni Shakur. 

Afeni was a sister, mentor, comrade and leader within the New York chapter of the Black Panther Party. 
As the section leader of the Harlem branch, Afeni was the one who personally welcomed many of us into the party. As the communications secretary, she was one of the highest ranking members on the East Coast and her leadership was the reason many young women joined. 

Afeni had a deep and profound love for the community and a passion for the people that made her a dynamic organizer and dedicated activist. She embodied the spirit of what it meant to be a Black Panther, waking up at 5AM to cook for the free breakfast program, coordinating the day to day office duties and personally being in the field. 

Afeni’s organizing laid the seeds for a legacy we still bear witness to today. While working with tenant organizations, Afeni led numerous rent strikes, resulting in several tenant owned buildings, some of which still exist today. She was instrumental in organizing health care professionals and patients at Lincoln Hospital and Harlem Hospital to develop the first patient bill of rights, a fore runner of the patient bill of rights now posted in every hospital.

After the Black Panther Party, Afeni continued her work in the community as a paralegal helping save hundreds of families from eviction and criminal convictions. She left an everlasting impact on the community and the arts world with her life long contributions that will never be forgotten. 

We send our deepest condolences and heartfelt sympathy to Sekyiwa, Jean and the entire Shakur family. We ask that young people everywhere continue Afeni’s legacy by lifting up her name and continuing to organize in their communities wherever they see injustice. 

We Love you dear sister Afeni. Long live your revolutionary spirit!

All Power To The People!
