That is a good point.

There was a thread on this yesterday, I already commented in that one so I won't now. Maybe they can be merged.

Oh, I had yet another comment on nbc's post: It would be great to expose their beliefs, but I'm sure they try to get away with buzzwords as much as anyone else. Fortunately, we all know where they stand, and history has taught us that lesson.

Unfortunately, trash clean-up programs don't expose the Klan's true agenda. It's a white-wash, saying "we're great, we're cleaning up your roads" and not mentioning their hatred of anyone who's different. That's why I don't like the idea of letting them do this. It's deceptive.

I've thought about this more and come around to this view after all. People already know what the Klan's true agenda is. They know that they're a hate group. All of the clean highways in the country aren't going to change the fact that it's the Klan.

I would cringe and feel ill seeing that sign-do they think that is good PR or something?

Sorry, I didn't know there had already been a thread about this yesterday, I didn't see it on the first page.
