Letters Allegedly Left by the KKK Found in Front of Whittier Homes

Residents in a Whittier neighborhood awoke Sunday to find fliers advertising the Klu Klux Klan on their front lawns, authorities said.

Those living in the 5400 block of Adele Avenue received plastic bags containing the fliers with KKK propaganda, a rock and a lollipop, the Whittier Police Department said.

“When I first read it, I thought it was a hoax,” said Stella Paquin, a longtime Whittier resident who found the fliers on her front lawn.

But as she read the commentary on African Americans contained in the fliers – which included a phone number and mailing address for the Loyal White Knights of the Klu Klux Klan – she realized she was not the victim of a prank.
