HURT, Va. – Town of Hurt officials are looking for information regarding pamphlets that were found in the town on Wednesday.

Mike Jones, Deputy Town Manager for Public Safety for the Town of Hurt said they have received several complaints about propaganda reported around the area.

The pamphlets contain racist propaganda and urge people to pray for white Americans.

Jones said the town is not certain of who is dropping the propaganda, but the pamphlets are reported to be from the White Knights Group.
