A racist and homophobic letter calling for white supremacist violence has been spotted in Sheffield, causing fear and alarm.
The leaflet, found in the Crookes suburb of the city, contained the racist epithets the N-word and the P-word and used the homophobic slur ‘f****’.
The leaflet calls for a white supremacist summer of violence and calls for a month of hatred and was discovered over the weekend.
Tell MAMA reported the material on behalf of the member of the public who discovered it.
The racist and homophobic calls for violence appeared on a piece of paper torn from a notepad in what appears to be wax crayon or marker pen – with hate written in red with the harmful and hateful slurs written in purple.
Tell MAMA is urging members of the public in Sheffield to report the leaflets to South Yorkshire Police by calling 101 or using True Vision online. Our casework team can also report such materials anonymously or on behalf of those impacted in confidence.
Advice: what to do if you receive or find hate mail:
- Letters and envelopes must be kept and handled minimally to preserve evidence
- Place the letter and the envelope in a clean and sealable plastic bag to stop further contamination
Tell MAMA will continue to provide updates to this story where applicable.
