BROOKLYN - Controversial fliers with swastikas on them are creating a stir in Crown Heights.

Dr. Bidi Xili, the man responsible for posting the fliers, says they actually have a positive message. He is promoting etymology classes he offers that focus on the origin of words. He says the swastika on the fliers has no relation to anti-Semitism.

Still, local residents say the fliers are in bad taste and should be taken down.

Xili says he is holding off on posting new fliers.
