Racist Message in Playground? Nope, a Supportive Family

Dave Wilkinson sent us this photo, which appears to be a donor's tribute at the Fort Sherman playground in City Park. Dave writes, "We were at the big park in Coeur d’ Alene on Sunday with our Hawaiian friend who was visiting from Oahu. We were playing in the big play structure with our kids and my friend was looking at all the names on the slats when he stops and says, 'What’s this?' I walked over and there it was a slat with 'Mein Kids J.K.K.K' on it! We were shocked that something so blatantly racist was displayed in a playground for children. Only in North Idaho!"

UPDATE: We determined the origin of "Mein Kids J.K.K.K." Learn more in the comments....
