On a new billboard for the Ku Klux Klan's radio station, the incendiary group claims its message of "White Pride" is not racist.

According to a story at HarrisonDaily.com, the advertisement for KKK Radio appeared this week in Arkansas and was erected by the Ku Klux Klan.

The billboard features an image of an adolescent white girl holding a puppy, right next to a message that reads, "It's not racist to (love) your people." The advertisement then lists the web address for KKK Radio, with the slogan, "Love lives here."

Thom Robb, national director of the Knights of the Ku Klux Klan, told the Harrison Daily Times that the group's lease on the billboard would be good for a year and that they will "probably redo the lease at the end of (2015)."

KKK Radio is an Internet radio station that airs programs including, "This is the Klan," "The White Side" and "White Women's Perspective." The station also airs Christian programming and classic radio shows like "The Lone Ranger" and "Amos 'n' Andy."
