Another question. The pastor owned the property for eleven years before he stared to whine. Why not eleven years ago?? I heard about this place years ago. If you don't like it don't go there. Same with the black expo and stuff. Don't go there!!

I demand that the "black pastor" have his church forcibly integrated by a court or the federal government. Then we'll talk.

if it's OK to burn this store down...is it OK to burn down the Black Expo?...the KKK store makes soceity feel uncomfortable but it is the beauty of America...being able to believe what you want to believe...even if it offends people....sooooo...if there can be a black expo...let these guys have their store....They aren't breaking any laws...just like there are no laws broken with the Black Expo, or BET, or Black Miss America...etc....
You see, this is why I have been pushing to pass a law forbidding the Klan from educating their kids at home. Do you even know what EXPO mean, the Miss Black America (get it right Miss) is not an establishment, nor is the Black Expo.

As for BET... I don't see you complaining about them when they play Eminem and all the other fake wannabe white gang rappers

I will continue to push this bill through because this is ridiculous... this madness has to stop.

While I in no way support the KKK, I would have to say that they can stop them from using their right to freedom of speech right after the stop the Westboro Bapist Church from using their freedom of speech. If people like WBC is protected then KKK should be as well.

If shutting the store is going to end the KKK then, by all means shut it down. However, shutting down the store is not going to make the KKK like Blacks any more than they do now. Also, I know some bLacks who do not like me for no reason and I am black like them. At least the KKK can give a sorry excuse for not liking somebody. Let the REDNECK Shop stay open. Frankly speaking, I like knowing what they are thinking. It's bad to think someone is for you and in reality that person is against you.

Sounds easy enough, but I think it would require a little common sense....Too much to ask for. Easier to b itch and fight than to accept that we all have our OWN opinions and are entitled to them...even if they are stupid, close-minded, racist and/or sexist.

Terrorist are alive well in good ole laurens and the government allows them to operate freely. Reverse the story and name from KKK to Al-Qaeda and and the store would have been closed or burned down long ago. The KKK are known terrorist like Al-Qaeda and should be treated the same. Just saying Al-Qaeda scares the chitt out people LOL, but the KKK gets a pass. LOL, only in America

The Klan has been around since 1915, almost 100 years, and will be around for another 100 years. Due to the vast amount of black on white crime the Klan is gaining more members and popularity each day. The closing of one store will make no difference. He will just move somewhere else. This really isn't news.
It was founded in 1866 in Tennessee by memebers of the Confederate Army as a social club.
