Conservative activist, Apostle Claver Kamau-Imani, who recently said that Democrats are the party of the Klu Klux Klan, is the prominent image on two of the four ads, which the group hopes will "stir up a storm on the plantation."
The signs definitely have people talking. One sign in particular that hangs over Martin Luther King, Jr. Boulevard in East Austin is drawing mixed reviews from residents there. It says: Martin Luther King, Jr. was a Republican. But this is a controversial claim that has never been substantiated.
Austin NAACP president Nelson Linder said that he feels the signs are disrespectful and that Black voters should vote based on whether issues that affect the community, including unemployment and police brutality, are addressed by either party.
"Martin Luther King was about civil rights and social justice. That's not the current Republican Party."
The signs are also up in Houston, Ohio and South Carolina. These are areas where high concentrations of people of color typically vote democratic.
