Ugh, so the Klu Klux Klan (a.k.a the KKK) is back in the news again.
Though, not for what you might think.
A chapter in Union County, Ga., recently applied to participate in the state's adopt-a-highway program. Yes that's right, an organization known for racist intimidation is trying to participate in a program to highlight community pride.
And, unsurprisingly, people are pissed about it.
As soon as they heard about it, more than 20,000 people signed an online petition to keep the KKK from cleaning a stretch of highway and having a road sign thanking them for it. Then, on Tuesday, the state announced it was denying the application.
Of course, that doesn't meant the fight is over. Leaders of the group have stated they'll probably seek legal recourse since similar lawsuits by similar groups in other states have won the right to adopt highways.
Personally, we don't have a problem with white trash picking up actual trash -- in fact, we think the KKK should clean all highways.
But, that's just us.
