KKK Attempts To Adopt A Highway In Georgia
A Ku Klux Klan chapter in Georgia recently attempted to “adopt” a stretch of highway in the Appalachian Mountains and under state rules the adoption may be allowed to move forward.
In an interview with the Atlanta Journal-Constitution the Klan’s exalted cyclops for the Realm of Georgia says quite simply:
“We just want to clean up the doggone road.”
Under Georgia’s adopt-a-highway program the adoption of a highway is allowed for “any civic-minded organization” that wishes to maintain a stretch of highway.
Speaking about the Klan’s position in the community a Klan member tells CNN:
“We’re not racists. We just want to be with white people. If that’s a crime, then I don’t know.”
Fighting the adoption request could be a losing battle, a KKK chapter in Missouri sued for and ultimately won the right to adopt a stretch of highway.
Do you think the KKK should be able to adopt a stretch of highway?
