The Department of Transportation of Georgia in the southern United States, today rejected a request from the Ku Klux Klan (KKK), an organization defending the supremacy of the white race over the request, to “adopt “a section of a state highway.

The government claims in its decision that the signs of the KKK chapter called “Knights of the Cornerstone International” along the road would be a “distraction” to drivers.

“To promote an organization that has a history of rioting and civil unrest would present a serious concern,” added State authorities on the application of the KKK, who asked to “adopt” a mile (1.6 km) of Route 515 in northern Georgia.

The Association of African American Elected Officials had asked the authorities to refuse the request even if this meant going to court, reported the Atlanta Journal Constitution newspaper.

The entity’s decision could spark a battle similar to the group filed in the state of Missouri when he also refused a similar request.

The state of Missouri for years faced a legal battle to prevent the organization to “adopt” a road, a fight that ultimately lost when the courts decided that, by denying the request to the KKK, it violated the First Amendment of the Constitution.

Before learning of the decision, the group had noted that if the Georgian authorities denied the petition would request the assistance of the Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) as they did in Missouri.
