TUCSON, AZ (Tucson News Now) - East-side neighborhoods received not one, but two recruitment letters last week from the Loyal White Knights of the Ku Klux Klan.

The cryptic notes were placed inside zip-lock bags and hung from mailboxes on several east-side streets.

"Save Our Land, Join the Klan," one of the notes says, followed by an address and phone number from North Carolina.

We called the number and listened to a pre-recorded message from a man with a southern drawl.

"Equal rights for whites," the message said.  "If it ain't white, it ain't right.  White power."

We'll be following this story throughout the day.
