NASHVILLE, Feb. 12 (UPI) -- Fliers in support of a Ku Klux Klan faction were found on driveways and lawns in a Nashville neighborhood, area residents say.

Residents of a Nashville neighborhood said the fliers had been placed inside free publications that were in turn put on their driveways and lawns to be discovered, The (Nashville) Tennessean said Thursday.

The distributed flier featured a link to a Web site for the Ku Klux Klan The Knights Party, USA. The flier also included racist comments that compared black people to savages, the Tennessean said.

Nat Vaprin, who lives in the neighborhood targeted for the recent flier dispersal, said the free publications paired with the fliers were likely taken from an area grocery store.

District 25 Metro Councilman Sean McGuire, who represents the targeted neighborhood, has already contacted the Metro Legal Department regarding the KKK fliers.

The Tennessean said only materials with sexual content cannot be placed inside publications without permission under current Nashville law. Other materials do not fall under the related city ordinance.
