The government claims in its decision that the signs of the KKK chapter would be a “distraction” for drivers
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 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.
