The past has been erased.

Lee, who is homeless, once had a large tattoo on his forearm that read, "Member - KKK." However, that is now covered by a cross representing Jesus and a rose representing Lee's mother who passed away about 8 years ago.

What is even more intriguing about the KKK tattoo being covered up by a cross is that the tattoo artist is black. Dewayne, who owns Beast Mode Ink in Murfreesboro, said he would be proud to cover up such a tattoo for Lee. In fact, the two hit it off great. It was likely a site that would not have been seen just a few years back.

Hear the entire interview by Scott Walker with Lee:

 

To make the story even better, Lee now has a job that he will start on Monday (7/31/17). That job is at Od's Car Wash at 1822 E Northfield Blvd in Murfreesboro, TN.
