Local white supremacist group tries spreading its message

Posted at 11:40 AM, Jan 16, 2017

While 7 Eyewitness News was covering a Martin Luther King, Jr. event in Lockport Sunday afternoon, a pamphlet organized by the Racial Nationalist Party of America was left on our 7ABC news vehicle.

On the group's pamphlet White Voice - which contains white supremacist literature - reads the slogan, "Where the White community comes together!"

Inside the pamphlet are several ways to get involved in the white nationalist movement, including a membership application to the local office in Lockport.

7 Eyewitness News is reaching out to the organization and Karl Hand, the founder of the group, for comment about the pamphlet and why he thinks there is a need for this organization in Western New York.

Hand previously had a write-in campaign for a U.S. Senate seat.
