Quite a few Detroiters are sharing a screengrab of a purported news story that says the Ku Klux Klan is "planning to form a peaceful protest towards the African American Museum on East Warren ave" on Wednesday. No, they're not.

The screengrab uses a font that's pretty close to the one used for Detroit News headlines, so it's easy for the uninitiated to make that mistake. It's a little worrisome that so many people can't see through the rest of the bullshit.

There is an "African American Museum" on East Warren Avenue ‚ÄĒ that would be the Charles H. Wright Museum of African-American History. You should know that it would be referred to as such in a serious news story.

Or you could just check out the link from "Nipsy's News" dot com ‚ÄĒ which has this little disclaimer at the top of its site:
