Georgia transportation officials have stated that they will not allow a local chapter of the Ku Klux Klan to "adopt" a one mile stretch of highway for clean up, citing "potential civil unrest," and organization's history. The Klan plans to appeal the decision. April Chambers of the International Keystone Knights of the KKK also responded: "All we want to do is adopt a highway," Chambers said Monday. "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."
"We're not racists," Chambers continued. "We just want to be with white people. If that's a crime, then I don't know. It's all right to be black and Latino and proud, but you can't be white and proud. I don't understand it."
