Racist letters, apparently sent by the KKK, wind up at Robeson County homes
Robeson County, NC – Residents in the Red Springs community are upset after racially offensive letters in a bag weighed down by rice were thrown in their yards.
This week, two families have received the letters, one of which had a CD inside.
One of the letters was found in Stephanie McArthur’s father’s yard on North Main Street Tuesday afternoon. McArthur said she came over to find her dad angry and on edge.
“He didn’t know whether this was something that they were going to come back and try to like they say back in the day, shoot up or something like that,” McArthur said.
The letter lists accusations against African Americans, such as “shattering tens of millions of Whites lives with rampant vicious murders, violent assaults, and rapes,” and “Bankrupting America with Prison Costs and breaking down our Justice system into the joke it is today.”
It also targets Jews, saying “The blacks and Jews have pushed too far and will never stop pushing. Their day of reckoning is near.”
On the bottom right-hand side of the letter is the insignia of the reported sender, the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.
