Obama: White supremacists in NJ

"Some residents of a northwestern New Jersey town received fliers last weekend that criticized the prospect of Democrat Barack Obama becoming the first black president. One national watchdog group said it may be the first distribution of racist fliers during the campaign… They are signed by the League of American Patriots, a white supremacist group with an address in Butler, N.J., about 45 minutes from Roxbury.
 
The fliers, distributed to about 25 to 50 homes "show unflattering photos of Obama, including one that makes him look like Osama bin Laden above text that says: 'Black Ruled Nations most unstable and violent in the world.' The black-and-white flier cites poverty, HIV and unemployment rates in Haiti and South Africa and says: 'The United States of America will be next! Why should we seal our fate by allowing a black ruler to destroy us?'"
