Chicago church posts 'safe to kill black people in Amerikkka' poster in protest against Zimmerman verdict

Washington, July 17 (ANI): A sign posted outside a South Chicago church has sparked a debate over race in the wake of the George Zimmerman verdict.

First Baptist Church of University Park posted a sign in time for service on Sunday, reading "'It Is Safe To Kill Black People In Amerikkka'.

According to the Washington Times, the sign board created a stir on the church's Facebook page, with most people taking issue with the reference to the Ku Klux Klan in "Amerikkka."

The church responded that the message on the sign was not a message of hate, but it was asking people to awaken and call for action.

The church added that it is a message not intended to divide, but to cause honest reflection in order to make this country a better place for all. (ANI)
