Yahoo News: Judge: Black church rightful owner of KKK store

After a lengthy legal battle between a black South Carolina church and members of the Ku Klux Klan, a judge has ruled that the church owns a building where KKK robes and T-shirts are sold.
So how did this come to pass?
Ownership of the building was transferred in 1997 to the Rev. David Kennedy and his church, New Beginnings, by a Klansman fighting with others inside the hate group, according to court records. That man, according to Kennedy, was feuding with store proprietor John Howard over a woman and "developed a spiritual relationship" with Kennedy's church, the judge wrote.

But a clause in the deed entitles Howard, formerly KKK grand dragon for the Carolinas, to operate his business in the building
In other words, the grand dragon was draggin' his feet on letting his landlord inspect the property, as is a landlord's right and he just got slapped by the court on the backside of his robes for doing so. That a Klan store is but a tenant to a Black Church is rather wonderful. Times sure have changed, and for the better in this case.

The Church not only gets to inspect the property but also gets the Klan shop to pay the Church's legal bills. That's gonna hurt.

Justice, while slow, seems to be proceeding most satisfactorily in the case.
