The KKK would like to adopt, not a person, but a section of a road in Georgia that borders North Carolina. The group applied to the Georgia Department of Transportation to be part of the Adopt-A-Highway program. It is now in the hands of the state to approve this request or not. This is not the Klan's fist attempt to adopt a highway. There was an unsuccessful attempt in 1997 in Missouri.
According to Harley Hanson, the Exalted Cyclops of the Klan's Realm of Georgia, he said the Klan would pursue legal action if it is denied. The KKK would like to adopt a section of Highway 515. What do they plan to do to that stretch of road? Will they pick up the trash and litter along their one mile? Will they plant flowers for everyone to enjoy? What is their real reason for wanting to adopt a one-mile stretch of road?
Hanson also stated, "We just want to clean up the doggone road," Hanson said. "We are good, decent Christian Americans, and what we're trying to do is to work with the local community."
The KKK would like to adopt a section of highway in Georgia, but should that be allowed to happen? What trouble would it cause it they go ahead with this? On the other hand, what will happen if they aren't allowed to adopt a highway? What are your thoughts on this unusual situation?
