The Insite has received communication from the Southern Poverty Law Center in Alabama asking for a business card.
That card was allegedly used as a recruitment tool for the Ku Klux Klan in Texas.
A stack of the cards were left in a convenience store in African American community.
The discovery of the card has left some customers upset.
The cards were placed in the store by an unidentified White male wearing sunglasses earlier this week according to community activist Quanell X.
He says the man was able to leave the cards in the store because the owner, who is from Pakistan, didn’t understand the purpose of the Klan and its place in American history.
Here’s what the Poverty Law Center wrote to the Insite:

Subject: Ku Klux Klan Cards Left In Store
Hello Mr. Carey,
I am writing in regard to a story you wrote about some Ku Klux Klan cards left in a store. My name is Angela Freeman, I am an Information Researcher with Southern Poverty Law Center (SPLC) in Montgomery, Al where we monitor and track hate & extremists groups such as the Ku Klux Klan. I was inquiring to see if you by chance have a copy of the card that you can possibly email or fax to me. I would greatly appreciate it. Thanks for your help.
