The roll on affect of the election of black presidential candidate Barrack Obama has continued today following the announcement that Reg Wendell a plumber from south Georgia has been the first African American to have his nomination into the Klu Klux Klan accepted.
"Yes I'm very excited" claimed Mr Wendell on hearing the news "The Klan has a long standing traditon in this area and I look forward to joining in with the work they do in the community although I'm not to shore about those hanging things they have on a Friday"
The 47 year old says that he was approached by the local grand wizard whilst relaxing at a town picnic who explained to him that with the election of Barrack Obama it was no longer acceptable for the Klan to target black people and would now turn their attention to another traditional enemy,the red head.
"We've noticed a huge increase in the number of people who have red hair" claimed Grand Wizard George Holsby "and we feel it's about time that we started showing the "gingers" just how we truly feel about them"
Effigy's of famous red headed people such as Ronald McDonald and Lucille Ball were set alight at a recent Klan rally which Holsby says is just the start of terror campaign set to fall upon "carrot tops" with another group also set to feel the heat from Klansmen.
"We're going after people who wear glasses as well" said Holsby.
With the Klan's charter now totally changed a recruitment drive is set to follow with the group now requesting those who have ever been involved in an unsavoury incident involving ginger haired people or someone who wears glasses to join up now and take advantage of this months special offer.
"We're offering twelve months registration for the price of six and will also throw in two free hoods and a t- shirt proclaiming our inaugural "Kick a Ginger Day" to be be held on January 5th
