TAYLORSTOWN, Pa. (AP) — Several Ku Klux Klan items listed in a classified ad have been pulled from a Pennsylvania auction.
WTAE-TV reports (http://bit.ly/2sCUWYR ) items such as a hood, book and robe adornment were posted on an auction website and scheduled to be sold at the Taylorstown Fire Hall on Thursday.
Resident Derrick Edwards says he saw a photo of a newspaper clipping with the classified ad. Edwards tells WTAE "you shouldn't make a profit off racism."
Auctioneer Randy Shook says the KKK items have been pulled. He says the overall auction will continue.
