MILWAUKEE — The University of Wisconsin-Milwaukee received two copies of a letter in the mail appearing to be from the Ku Klux Klan. College students are surprised they’re being targeted. FOX6 News was able to speak to a man who sent it, who claims to be a in a group called the “Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.” He lives hundreds of miles away and is upset about a book.
Students are shaking their heads confused why they’ve been targeted.
In the letter, the author asks students to join him to help boycott a new book, “The Slave Players.” The fiction thrilled, set in the deep south, depicting the murder of several African-American children, has appeared to strike a nerve with the KKK chapter based in North Carolina.
