Timberland
 
I am having a dilemma. My father is completely and utterly convinced that Timberland is run by the KKK and he won't let us wear anything Timberland because of that. I know for a fact - thanks to Snopes :D - that this is not true.

However, if my only proof of this is from Snopes, my dad is just going to say something, like, Snopes is in cahoots with Timberland or something. XD I wish! Then, the webmasters would be rich, yay.

I was hoping that someone here might be able to help out with some more information about this UL.

Thank you!

The Timberland Company 2005 Annual Report lists the Directors and Corporate officers. An asful lot of Jewish names for a company owned by the KKK, especially since Timberland is publically owned.

Here's another list of major shareholders: http://finance.yahoo.com/q/mh?s=TBL

Apparently EBS, Barclays, and Goldman Sachs are all part of the KKK.
