Bloomington residents found sandwich bags stuffed with Ku Klux Klan propaganda.
Residents near Vale and Oakland found the KKK propaganda inside sandwich bags Sunday morning. Bloomington Mayor Tari Renner released a statement calling the propaganda a "horrible movement backward."
"We certainly have to recognize that these don't reflect the values of the City of Bloomington. Bloomington is the home of the national movement, 'Not in Our Town.' We embrace the American ideal of a melting pot. We welcome people of all races, ethnic backgrounds, religions, and that's who we are. That's what we're about and we embrace the process of making America a more perfect union, and we're not moving backward. This would be a horrible movement backward. We're not going to do that."
Renner encourages community members who find the sandwich bags of KKK propaganda to call the Bloomington Police Department and report where it was found.
