KKK group applies to adopt a stretch of Georgia highway

ATLANTA, GA -
A North Georgia chapter of the Ku Klux Klan has applied to "adopt" a stretch of highway in Union County, Georgia, according to paperwork obtained by CNN on Monday.

The application, which would allow the white supremacy group to receive state recognition for cleaning up a one-mile portion of a highway, was filed by the International Keystone Knights of the KKK on May 21.

If the Georgia Department of Transportation accepts the application, the KKK would be responsible for cleaning litter on a part of Georgia State Route 515 in the Appalachian Mountains near the North Carolina border.

"All we want to do is adopt a highway," said April Chambers, the chapter's secretary. "We're not doing it for publicity. We're doing it to keep the mountains beautiful. People throwing trash out on the side of the road ... that ain't right."

3. This reminds me of a headline I saw years ago.....

The Klan was listed as an "equal opportunity employer" looking for people to sew sheets.

6. This is terrible, should not be allowed, and I think they've actually done this elsewhere.

I remember seeing signs as a kid on an interstate or other major highway somewhere in between Michigan and Florida.
