ORANGE COUNTY, Fla. (WOFL FOX 35 ORLANDO) -
The Orange County Sheriff's Office is investigating a "threat" against a family after a KKK flier was left at their home over the weekend.
The black family lives in the Cypress Lakes neighborhood, a racially diverse community of about 1,300 homes in east Orange County, near Chuluota Road and State Road 50.
The flier says that whites would be outnumbered by the year 2042.
A person identifying himself as a Grand Dragon of the Fort Christmas Knights of the Ku Klux Klan said in an email to Fox 35 that the group is "placing these fliers in the area on a routine basis" and that they will not apologize for their white supremacist views.
"We are simply stating our white supremacist ideals and will not stand for our area to be invaded," the email said. "We will not stand down to the minority invasion."
The family who found the flier, who does not want to be identified, is the only one in the neighborhood to receive the flier so far, the Orlando Sentinel reported.
