A White supremacist organization has been distributing fliers in the Gilbert area and the FBI says it’s monitoring the situation.
The fliers from the National Alliance state that “it’s open season on white women” and picture NBA player Kobe Bryant and former NFL star O.J. Simpson, saying the two “represent only the tip of the iceberg of black on white crime.”
About 500 fliers have been distributed in Gilbert, said Jasa Slovjanski, a spokesman for the Phoenix-area chapter of the National Alliance.
He said about 2,500 to 3,000 fliers have been distributed monthly in the Phoenix metropolitan area since September.
Susan Herskovits, spokeswoman for the FBI’s Phoenix office, said the bureau is monitoring the fliers.
“If it gets people motivated to commit acts of violence against certain groups or races, we will monitor it,” she said.
Slovjanski said the National Alliance had no role in last week’s mail bomb attack at Scottsdale’s Office of Diversity and Dialogue that injured its director, Don Logan, who is black.
“The National Alliance does not operate in any illegal manner,” he said.
