1.  ”I live in the mountains and I want to keep them beautiful,” says the KKK group’s secretary, April Chambers. "I don’t know why anybody’s offended by it."

    Georgia’s Department of Transportation needs all the help it can get. But even in this era of budget crunches, the Peach State’s transportation department isn’t sure it wants help from the Ku Klux Klan, which recently applied to keep a mile of northern Georgia’s Route 515 clean through the state’s “Adopt-a-Highway” program.

    "This is simply another attempt by the Klan to somehow portray itself as a kinder, gentler group rather than the terrorist organization that it has historically been," says Mark Potok at the Southern Poverty Law Center. 

    Can Georgia legally stop the KKK from adopting a highway?

    Sure, let them adopt the highway. But instead of giving them the money they get for doing it, give the money to equality...
