CORRECTION Previously the story had mentioned a resident from Bettendorf.

Residents in Davenport are receiving racist flyers promoting “racial distancing.”

One such resident is Camellia Pohl of Davenport. Her daughter found a rolled up magazine on their doorstep on Monday with a racist sticker attached to it.

“Racial Distancing,” the sticker said.

“It really upsets me that they would deliver this in our own neighborhood. I would like to think my neighbors would feel welcome int their own neighborhood. I don’t want anyone to be afraid of them,” Pohl told Local 4 News.

Pohl added that several of her neighbors received the flyer as well.

Local 4 News reached out to Davenport Police Department regarding the incidents who said that the department hasn’t received any complaints yet.
