The KKK chooses to hold rallys where it understands it has some support already and would like to extend its reach and intimidate those who oppose it.
Elijay is a racist place. I don't live there but you don't have to live in a place to know something about it like that. I am a Georgia native and I have been to Elijay numerous times. As a Black person I will say I don't like it when I have to go through. It's not a safe place. Like many towns in GA, the white folks make it a mean place.
