Well Hello Mr Two Face

Detroit mechanic hides a KKK secretThis is the way weirdest story to come out of Detroit, in like, hours. Mr Burwell seemed like a nice enough guy (sure, don’t they all). The bespectacled white mechanic from Ohio ran a repair shop and was often seen driving black children to church in his bus (ah huh). He even ran a jobs program for ex crims which was funded by the civil rights groups (hmm). He was loved by all including Catholics, Jews and African Americans (now I am worried).Damn, he even gave to the Detroit Black Panther Party (oook). So what’s a man that seems like “Mr Color Blind” doing with  friggin Ku Klux Klan robes in his garage (WTF)? Not only that but he was a high ranking member to boot.Well hello Mr secretary for Unit No. 1 of the local National Knights of the KKK chapter ( can that fit on a name badge?).  Talk about finger in each pie. Even his wife hadn’t a clue about her hubby’s little secret (well, that ain’t no surprise). Funny enough Mr Burwell’s secret stayed hidden for years in the loft of his gargage until the new owner decided to have a clean up. There he found, ironically in a box containing photocopies of checks he had sent to help improve race relations, evidence of his KKK days.You can read the whole story at Detroit News. I would like to think Jim Burwell was an informant for police and not a “real” member of the KKK. Sheez, this coming from someone who believes in Santa and the tooth fairy!

Psst I don’t think Hallmark will be making this story anytime soon.

    One word “sprung” Do you think he genuinely changed his ways? I mean he did after all send cheques to imrpove race relations. Maybe he just likes dress ups.

    • When I was growing up in the hills, there were rumors about devil worshipers using the quarry at night and sacrificing goats. Everyone talked in whispers about it. I remember a friend of mine came to school one day all spooked out. She said her brother had a sleepover at a friend’s place and they were playing hide and seek. Her brother had jumped into a closet (I assume the parents) and there was a devil worshiper hooded cloak hanging up. She refused to say who the family was because she was so scared and they were well known. I never found out who it was. But it would have been funny if it was a fancy dress costume (they were very popular in the hills too).I must say I went rummaging through my parents closets when I got home just to make sure. Geez, what would have I done if I found they were friggin devil worshipers? That would have changed things. LOL!

    Ah Loom we had a blow out in a tyre when at a pub in country Victoria. With NO SPARE as that was being repaired as well we had a short spell before it was fixed so we joined the locals for a drink. Well you know me, ears prick up to hear what they talk about and WTF, devil worshippers and walking on hot coals talk. Who’s rooting who and who’s not paying talk. Greenvale Pub out past Bacchus Marsh. We hightailed it out of there as soon as that tyre was repaired as it was now dark and I for one didn’t want to be around dark people after my dark ghost when I was 14. You couldn’t see us for dust.
