Racist literature promoting KKK left on front lawns in Cherry Hill

The incident was reported to police on Saturday.

Police are investigating after someone left racist literature on front lawns in Cherry Hill overnight.

The printed messages contained racial epithets and expressed support for the Ku Klux Klan.

The items were left in plastic bags at several houses in the Old Orchard section of the community, police reported Saturday.

One of the fliers, attributed to a group called the Loyal White Knights, condemns interracial dating, includes a racist cartoon and tells readers to “join the white revolution.”

Cherry Hill Mayor Chuck Cahn issued a statement vowing to track down those responsible.

“This type of hatred and bigotry will not be tolerated in our town,” Cahn said. “We will investigate this matter until we identify the individuals responsible and will prosecute them to the fullest extent of the law.”
