Black Teen Helps Elderly White Lady Down Escalator, Why Is This News?

It is news because of the drumbeat of race relations daily to the point of nausea. A young teen helped a scared lady, that’s it, nothing more. But today it seems to be out of the ordinary because of who and what his color skin is. Human kindness knows no color. If people would exhibit a little bit more of giving than receiving, the world would truly be a better place. Kindness is God given, from the heart so to speak, it knows no gender, it knows no color, it should know no crede.

According to Telegraph.co.uk:

Grandma went with me shopping tonight in Ft Wayne, Just me, her and the two little ones. I was carrying all of the bags and trying to hold both girls hands as we went down the escalator. I didn’t realize until I stepped on that grandma was too scared to get on-I felt horrible as I watched her try again and again to get her footing right. People walked around her, pushed by her or asked her to step to the side- until this amazing man saw her. Not only was he not ashamed to help her, but held her hand the entire way down and helped her off.

It makes you wonder when something as simple as a teen helping an elderly lady navigate an escalator, makes headline news. This is a sad day in a world when a simple gesture of kindness should have the loudest applause, and is seen as heroic. What do you think?
