KKK Poster Found at Tarrytown Marriott

A flier inviting members to join the white supremacy group for a local meeting was found posted at the Westchester Marriott Hotel in Tarrytown where Mercy College students are housed.

Mercy College and local law enforcement officials are investigating the posting of a flier at the Westchester Marriott Hotel in Tarrytown that promoted violence and sought to recruit members into the Klu Klux Klan. 

“The college has zero tolerance for insensitive and disturbing behavior,” said Bernadette Wade, the college’s chief public relations officer. “Mercy College’s Code of Conduct specifies offensive material cannot be posted anywhere. The college is cooperating with local officials as well as conducting its own internal investigation.” 

Mercy College’s newspaper The Impact reported that the flier was seen posted at the hotel, where Mercy College students dorm, on Nov. 30. The flyer invited members to a meet on Dec. 1 at the corner of Broadway and Elm Street in Dobbs Ferry and contribute to continuing “this great tradition of lynching Negros.” The Rivertowns Daily Voice reports that Dobbs Ferry Police confirmed the meeting did not occur.

According to The Impact, several names of individuals on the Mercy College Men’s Lacrosse team were listed on the flier, implying that they were the meeting organizers. Local police departments are investigating whether the flier was actually an attempt to recruit new members, if it was a hoax, and if the lacrosse team is involved or being used as a scapegoat.

Do you really think the KKK left that poster? Man, how gullible people can be. Being they spelled the second KKK, with an uppercase (Kkk), makes me think likely a college student trying to stir up more hate is behind this. There seems to be an anti white/wealthy agenda out there. There have been many cases of persons of certain colors or religions faking attacks and posting things like this. Did you see this one? http://www.examiner.com/article/did-sharmeka-moffitt-really-fake-hate-crime-attack Just do a search for " hate crime hoax" you'll be amazed.

I don't believe it is an actual KKK recruitment poster, but I do think it's funny that they said they were going to meet in DobbsFerry.

And I think near that corner is a Jewish Temple of some sort.
