(NEWSADVANCE) — Residents of a quiet, peaceful section of Marshall Terrace, a Danville neighborhood near West Main Street, woke Thursday morning to an unwelcome surprise in their front lawns.

Small, rolled up flyers had been placed in front of their houses, sporting racial and other discriminatory slurs.

While no one knows for sure who passed out the material, the handouts did sport the signature of the Loyal White Knights, a branch of the Ku Klux Klan.
