I don't know... that guy seems a bit fishy. Might want to check with the King of Siam and see what he thinks.

Why all the free promotion for these guys?

You are doing exactly what they want, raise contraversy so they get free press and free advertising.

I think promoting this as a MetroJacksonville feature article is in poor taste. MJ should continue to be positive and constructive in ways that move Jacksonville forward. We don't need more publicizing of our negative qualities. The local media does that enough already.

You already had an Urban Construction update posted this morning. This was a poor judgement call, IMO.

No one needs to be afraid of the KKK anymore. They are a very small fringe group who have no power anymore. Back when the KKK had real power, they didn't need to do stunts like this. This is just a few rednecks feeling beat down by the system and the KKK gives them a feeling of importance. Let this story RIP. No need to give them more free publicity. The TV stories should have been about a third as long as they were. Just a lot of hash and rehash, but that's local TV news for you. Have to find a story and blow it up into huge proportions!

Came across this KKK flier. Found it near Cherry and Park about a month ago. 

The number one bullet "had enough busing?"

I hate to give tips to the KKK, but they should consider updating their racist bullet points to match the modern era. "Had enough busing" may not have the same impact as they might hope in 2016.
