Georgia high school athletic director probed over KKK photo on Facebook

A high school athletic director in Evans County, Georgia is under investigation after he posted a racially insensitive photo on Facebook that downplays the violence perpetrated by the Ku Klux Klan against African Americans.

The Facebook post was allegedly shared by Jody Hilley, the athletic director of Lakeside High School. The post showed a black man dressed in a white hood and robe, news outlets reported.

The post argued that black people killed more African Americans in six months than the KKK has in 86 years

The Augusta Chronicle reported that the Columbia County School District confirmed that Hilley posted the image on Facebook to the “Columbia County, GA Online Yard Sale” page.

The school district's superintendent called the incident "completely appalling," and said the district is investigating.

Hilley has not commented.
