(WXYZ) — The Michigan chapter of the Council on American-Islamic Relations (CAIR-MI) has called on the FBI to investigate after racist, pro-KKK hate flyers were left at two homes of multi-racial families in Trenton.

According to CAIR-MI, the flyers quoted bible verses that were opposed to interracial marriage and also used racist, anti-Black slurs.

The News-Herald reports that similar ones were distributed in Trenton in 2016.

"We call on federal law enforcement to join the Trenton Police in using their full resources to apprehend those who were involved in this apparent hate crime," said CAIR-MI Executive Director Dawud Walid. "Especially during this election year, white supremacists need to be sent a strong message from federal law enforcement and prosecutors that such ethnic intimidation will not be tolerated in our society.”
