KKK Wants to ‘Adopt’ Highway in Georgia

A group affiliated with the Ku Klux Klan wants to "adopt" a mile-long stretch of highway in Georgia.

According to The Atlanta Journal-Constitution, the Georgia Department of Transportation is currently reviewing the May 21 request—filed by International Keystone Knights of the KKK in Union County—to clean up part of 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," according to the department's website.


Your opinion? Should they be allowed to adopt a highway?

Really? You think the KKK is simply a race based oragnization? Not a terrorist group responsible for some of the most heinous crimes in our country's history.

Get a clue. Some people are so racist they can't even see something so incredibly offensive when it is right in front of them,

No, they should not be able to sponsor a public road and further publicize themselves. Any other answer is unacceptable.

No. They want their name, on that sign. That's the only reason. Imagine being a person who happens to drive on that road. Be it regularly, or a one time out of towner. That'll permanently change your opinion of the area. I know it would with me.

Agree with 459 & 524. They just want their name on the stretch of highway as a "threat", whether action happens or not. And that would go for any politicaal org, especially the thousands of race based ones. Businesses, ok, orgs not. Churches, yes.

Albert Pike was a 33rd degree Freemason, hence the K K K of the clan. Their purpose was served and the group is now relegated to its historical identity as racist. It was so much more than a race-based social club. It was the "good ole boy network" of an entire region. K is of course the 11th letter of the alphabet.

Yes they should. This is America and if you let the Muslims do anything they believe then the KKK has the same rights. They are more American than the Muslims you idiots keep protecting.

614-The KKK was formed by Southern Baptists and Democrats to lynch Republicans both white and black after the Civil War. Look it up, I ain't lying. That "good ol boy" network is nothing more than a bunch of cojoneless cowards hiding behind masks.

6:14 is correct there is both a Statue and a library in Washington DC
ironically Jesse Jackson is a 33 degree Mason

You can't have it both ways. Either thengroupnhas thenrightnto be an organization or not. If it does, they can get the sign. If not, don't let them organize at all. Sometimes freedom can be distasteful, but you have to decide if it is worth it.
