Ku Klux Klan highway bid sparks fury

Tuesday 12 June 2012

US civil rights activists reacted with fury on Monday at attempts by a Ku Klux Klan group to join Georgia’s “Adopt-A-Highway” programme to clean up litter on roads.

Each group that volunteers is named on a sign on the road it adopts. The KKK group secretary claimed that she applied to keep the highway beautiful, not for publicity.

But State Representative Tyrone Brooks said he welcomed the opportunity to educate the group about the Klan’s legacy of violence and racism – which he experienced first-hand as a civil rights activist in the fight to end segregation.

“I’d like to sit down with this young lady and say: ‘Your organisation tried to kill me’,” Mr Brooks said.

He said that the notion of a highway sign identifying the Klan as a civic group was “insulting and insane.”

Mr Brooks, who is president of the Georgia Association of Black Elected Officials, said the group would pursue legal action should the KKK application be approved.

From TIME in the USA:

Perhaps Georgia will find another way to fight back, even while granting the KKK’s application. While it lost its legal battle over the KKK’s application, Missouri’s state legislature found another way to fight back: it renamed the KKK-adopted road after civil rights icon Rosa Parks in 2000. In 2009, after a different stretch of Missouri highway was adopted by a neo-Nazi group, the state voted to name it after Rabbi Abraham Joshua Heschel, a rabbi who fled Nazi Germany and led civil rights movements in the U.S., according to the New York Times.

If the Georgia state legislature wants to take a similar kiss-your-enemy move to thank the KKK for their service, they might consider naming the highway after W. W. Law — a Savannah, Ga., NAACP leader who led a successful campaign to desegregate the city in the 1960s.
