A North Carolina Ku Klux Klan chapter distributed hundreds of recruitment fliers Sunday night in a predominantly black neighborhood located in Florida.

The fliers, which featured an individual dressed in the trademark KKK garments, were passed out over the past few days, according to WFTV.

"Our race is our nation," the fliers said. "Loyal white knights of the KKK."

KKK leader Robert Jones, who spoke to WFTV, appeared to imply that the white supremacist organization had no idea that the neighborhood they targeted was occupied by mostly black individuals.

"Well, we don't have no way of judging where we're putting the fliers at," Jones said.

Nonetheless, WFTV said the group still plans to distribute about 600 fliers in the area during the next few days.

Upset residents warned the group not to come back again.

"Stay away from our neighborhood. We live together here. All different races," resident Ericka Blount said.

"(I) saw that it was a piece of paper on the ground and it had hate stuff on it," another resident, Tim Washington, said. "I think it's shallow in this day and age."

According to WFTV, the group has thus far been unsuccessful in recruiting any new members from the area.
