KKK recruitment fliers were found in the parking lot of Gray's Creek High School on Friday night following the football game.

HOPE MILLS, North Carolina -- KKK recruitment fliers were found in the parking lot of a North Carolina high school on Friday night following the football game. Parents and students who attended the game found the grim discovery on their windshields.

"It promotes racial inequality," said Amber Holland, who lives in Cypress Hills. "It promotes hostility, violence and division."

Those fliers also made their rounds into Cypress Hills, a subdivision across the street from the school.

"We threw them away," said Brian Hicks, another Cypress Hills resident.

Hicks has two stepchildren attending the high school and those fliers go completely against what's taught at home, he said.

"Sit down and have a little more discussion about what this world is doing right now," said Hicks. "The divisiveness and how to counteract that, you know?"

He says the residents of Cypress Hills have a Facebook page where they talk about community issues. The flier was a huge talker.

"They're not happy about it. Everybody just wants to get along and it seems like one thing after another this year at school that's come up that's pulling against everybody," Hicks said.

Cumberland County school officials said the matter is being investigated.

"We are aware of the unapproved distribution of material on the campus of Gray's Creek High School during the football game," school officials said in a statement to ABC11.

ABC11 spoke to James Spears, the Great Titan of the KKK on why those fliers were distributed at the high school.

"We're hoping to let people know here is an alternative out there," Spears said. "Right now in America, it seems to me they're trying to erase white culture and white heritage right out the history books. We're letting them know there's another side out there."
