Klan Highway: KKK Seeks to Adopt Georgia Road

by at . Comments

Members of the Ku Klux Klan are looking to take part in the Adopt-a-Highway program for a mile-long stretch of road in Georgia, according to reports.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Georgia Department of Transportation is currently reviewing the request made May 21 by the Klan.

The application was filed by International Keystone Knights of the KKK in Union County to clean up Route 515 in the Appalachian Mountains in Blairsville.

"Any civic-minded organization, business, individual, family, city, county, state, or federal agency is welcome to volunteer in the Georgia Adopt-A-Highway program," at least according to the department's website.

The state attorney general's office is expected to decide shortly.

"We just want to clean up the doggone road," Harley Hanson, who filed the application, told the paper. "We're not going to be out there in robes."

But Rep. Tyrone Brooks, head of the Georgia Association of Black Elected Officials, called on Georgia state officials to reject the application.

"This is about membership building and re-branding in a public way," he said.

"What's next, neo-Nazis or the Taliban or al-Qaida adopting highways?"

"We are good, decent Christian Americans," Hanson, the group's "exalted cyclops," added. "What we're trying to do is to work with the local community."

It's not the first time the KKK has participated in an "Adopt-a-Highway" program.

In 2000, the KKK successfully adopted part of I-55 south of St. Louis after a federal judge ruled that the Missouri DOT could not bar them from doing so.

The Georgia KKK group said it will file a lawsuit if the state rejects its application.

Jenna, you're just seeing what you want to see. Put the joint down, and read the words. I DON'T LIKE THE NEGATIVE STEREOTYPE, OF ANY RACE OR RELIGION.
I LISTED THE NEGATIVE STEREOTYPE F BLACKS. NOT ALL BLACKS FIT THAT. QUITE A FEW DO. SOME BLACKS CLAIM RACISM AT THE DROP OF A HAT. YOU'RE DOING 75 IN A 55 ZONE. YOU GET A TICKET, IS IT BECAUSE YOU'RE BLACK, OR BECAUSE YOU WERE SPEEDING. YO ARE A MORON, IF I WERE RACIST, I WOULD SAY, OK, TO THE KLAN'S WISHES. There are many descent blacks, there is also a lot of the negative stereotypes, O lole to refer to as Niggers. Uh oh, a white person, used the 'N' word, go crazy!

Keep it clean, Cowboy!

@ Matt Dillon My! What a benevolent creature you are! To think you would share your grass blades with the needy! Watch it! You'll have those raving radical liberal "greenies" on your pink flamingo-infested lawn slobbing with adoration because of your environmental act of keeping the grass trimmed without putting gas emissions in the air! There must be some small town award offered for such philanthropic acts down your way! Careful! Or you'll have to bite the bullet and purchase a suit 'n tie to make the rounds accepting your numerous Humanitarian Awards.

@ Jenna- By the time Obama is finished with this Country no one will even remember Bush- even when Obama blames him- again & again. He has not a clue as to what to do. Assuming you haven't been in this country long I will give you some history. 9/11 is why we went to war. Any President would have went to war over that. Obama will not cleanup any mess because he does not know how. I have never seen a sitting president campaign 4 two years. He talks. His " Pie N the sky" dreams of $ 14 an hour jobs is like using a band aid for a gunshot. What you people need to understand is this. He is not a Leader and the majority of Americans have absolutely no faith in his ability to Govern. We the working people will not support the ones who refuse to contribute. He has got to go.

Additionally, allsaints45, I'm sick of people saying Obama destroyed "your country". People on Wall Street, bankers and the like who were involved in underground trading, as well as other factors, led to an economic collapse in late 2008, before Obama was President. It is not possible that the rules and leadership of someone who was not enforcing rules or leadership at that time is at fault. America spent a ridiculous amount on unnecessary wars under the Bush Administration. The world economy is quickly crumbling and it is largely due to the actions and business practices of Americans. That is a reality. Obama is stuck cleaning up the mess you made. Not the other way around.

allsaints45, that is the stupidest thing I've ever read. You're basically saying that the KKK is bad because it hates people and makes generalizations which are unfair because the way that people act or think is not solely because of their race. You're saying that we should look at people for who they are specifically and not blame their action or behaviour on their race, thus expecting similar actions or behaviour from all other members of that race. Then you proceed to say that you hate the kind of black people who think the law does not apply to them, lazy people on welfare who could get a job if they got off their ass and tried, and make other like-minded generalizations that you just expressed your disdain for. You're basically saying, "I hate racist and presumptuous/ignorant groups, but not as much as I hate black people and lazy poor people." Wow....

I dislike Obama for destroying my country, not because he is of mixed race. I dislike any negative stereotype, of a race, or nationality. I hate lazy people on welfare, who could find work if they tried. I hate the type of black, who feels the world owes them something, and the law doesn't apply to them. I don't however, haye a person based only on their skin color. The Klan hates in general, not on an individual bases. Having a sign on a southern highway, that has KKK on it, would bring back a lot of bad feelings, for some people.
