FBI Investigating Nazi Propaganda Sent To Black Homeowner
There was something about the handwriting spelling out her address that caused LetitiaDewith-Anderson to lay the envelope aside when it arrived on Tuesday. When she finally opened it Wednesday night, and found a flyer featuring a swastika, “white power” slogans and an application to join the American Nazi Party.
She checked with neighbors; they had not received the same flyer, and Dewith-Anderson, who's black, realized she had been singled out.
“And I think that that was just trying to intimidate me to say hey, we’re back, we’re here, and we’re watching you,” she says.
The letter was addressed to “Resident” and mailed from the South Suburbs of Chicago.
Leland Grove Police Chief Dan Ryan says he’s never received a similar complaint. His officers turned the case over to the FBI.
As for Dewith-Anderson, she says the only change she plans to make is to put a sign in her front yard, saying "Black Lives Matter."
