South Carolina residents reportedly receive invite to join Ku Klux Klan

Residents in a section of Charleston, S.C., have reportedly received unsolicited invites to join the Ku Klux Klan.

One of the people who received the flyer in West Ashley's Pierpoint neighborhood turned it over to Charleston County sheriff deputies was a black girl, the Post and Courier reports.

KKK National Director Thomas Arthur Robb told the newspaper he couldn't confirm that the solicitations came from his organization, but said members frequently take initiative to recruit new members.

"If a black person got it, it's just an accident," Robb told the newspaper. "We're not trying to recruit blacks."

Charleston County Sheriff's Office Maj. Jim Brady said the flyers are not illegal, but investigators logged them into evidence and documented the incident.
