KKK leader: We don't hate people because of their race

CHESTERFIELD, VA (WWBT) -

 

We are now hearing from the man behind all those KKK fliers being distributed across Chesterfield. The Klan documents have been reported in multiple neighborhoods since January. 

The fliers were found in Walton Park, and we are told more were distributed in Wrexham Estates and Deerfield Estates.

"We picked ours up out of our driveway and threw it in the trash," said Sarah Peachee who lives in Walton Park "We weren't interested in even reading about it."

Just last week, the fliers were left on driveways in Bexley, Chester Grove, Long Meadow, and Kendale Acres.

"Are they watching me?" questioned Annette Graham who has lived in Walton Park for more than a decade. "I think it's crazy...absolutely insane for that to be happening in this day and time."

NBC 12 spoke to Frank Ancona who is Imperial Wizard of the Traditional American Knights of the Ku Klux Klan. He is president of the group distributing the fliers in Chesterfield County. Ancona says KKK membership is up across the country.

"In the last 6 years that I've been president of this organization I've seen the numbers probably triple," said Ancona.

He says members are tasked with recruiting new members. 

"We don't hate people because of their race," said Ancona. "We are a Christian organization."

Ancona claims the packets are meant to recruit, and he says they are tools used to "set the record straight."

"Because of the act of a few rogue Klansmen," said Ancona. "All Klansmen are supposed to be murderers, and wanting to lynch Black people, and we're supposed to be terrorists. That's a complete falsehood."

Each neighbor we interviewed said they trashed the KKK fliers. 

"The funny thing is the same neighborhoods where you're saying there are people who don't want the flier are neighborhoods where our members live," said Ancona. "And neighborhoods where people are sympathetic to our cause and are glad to hear from us. We get emails from people encouraging us...thanking us for the information."

Ancona says his organization is not a hate group. 

"We want to keep our race the White race," said Ancona. "We want to stay White. It's not a hateful thing to want to maintain White Supremacy."

The way the flyers are being distributed is not illegal, but police ask that you report them. 
It helps police track what's going on in the community.
