Bill and Diana Walker of Dover Township were leaving for church on Sunday morning when she spotted something lying in their driveway.
Bill went to get it and found a little plastic bag with something inside. It was wet from the rain overnight, so he scooped it up with a shovel and placed it on top of a trash can.
After church, the couple took a closer look. The bag contained some birdseed and a flier from the Ku Klux Klan calling for racial segregation.
“It was just a surprise and a shock,” Diana Walker said.
The couple, who is African-American, reported it to Northern York County Regional Police.
Police could not be reached for comment.
It comes just a week after KKK propaganda was spread throughout the parking lot of a movie theater in West Manchester Township. In that case, the fliers referenced the movie “BlacKkKlansman,” which is about an African-American detective who infiltrated the Klan.
“We all know that hate exists, and it’s been going on forever,” Diana Walker said. “I just think that with the current atmosphere … there’s no boundaries, and I think that’s causing this to take place more often …”
