A series of stickers for a white nationalist group showed up around downtown Chattanooga Wednesday evening. They read "American Identity Movement" and were posted on at least three light poles near the City Hall building, with at least some along Martin Luther King Boulevard, the same street where five black women were wounded in a shooting by three self-proclaimed Klansmen in 1980.

Photos of the patriotic-themed stickers were posted to the American Identity Movement's Twitter page where they were shared at least 17 times.

"We're confident that these stickers and the organization they represent are not indicative of how most Chattanoogan's feel and who we are," Wade Hinton and Alison Lebovitz, co-chairs of the Council Against Hate, said in a statement.
