"It's OK to be white" flyers pop up in Mooresville

- Flyers stating "It's OK to be white" popped up overnight in a local Mooresville neighborhood. 

The flyers, covered in plastic to shield them from the rain, were put up around various areas, by an unknown person. 

A woman, who wanted to remain anonymous, told FOX 46 Charlotte her son was out walking their dogs Wednesday morning when he came across the flyer. 

"Apparently they're posted on all of the mailboxes in our neighborhood,' she said. "He's taking down all the ones he can." 

The pieces of paper indicate they're from The Knights Party and www.KKK.com, although it's unclear at this time if this is an actual KKK act or a prank by a random individual. 

FOX 46 Charlotte is in your neighborhood working to get results on the flyers' origin. Look for updates on fox46charlotte.com.
