A black American came to town.

I and only a few know about this. It will go no further than this forum and disbelieved by many and razzed by many a cynics. It is not a big news story because their's absolutely nothing sensational about it. A truly boring story, as the other side to life truly is.

A Black American vagrant (I can only assume he is or someone walking across the country just for the hell of it) came to my 95% white-small-Republican town the other day. Stopped by my place of work and raising all sorts of suspicions and alarm bells (strangers do that here, regardless of their skin color), asking politely if he may speak to the manager, so i was told later. From what i understand, he needed a jar of Vaseline for his sore laden feet for all the walking he had been doing for i-don't-know-how-long. My boss bought it for him and the vagrant asked for nothing more and left.

I didn't find out until the next day that the all white Police force got involved and a hold of him........ not by shooting him or throwing him in jail and roughing him up, but by feeding him and putting him up in one of our few motels in the city and on their dime. I know nothing more of what became of him, so i can't add any more that i have. (Perhaps i will, being that this is a small town and all. News isn't kept from anyone for very long.)

I did think it odd, though.... that instead of the usual entertainment trope, reality went against what we ordinarily see on the boob tube... the citizenry did not rise up, wasn't inclined on lynching him and our white cops first thoughts were not on throwing him in jail, to save taxpayers monies and further.... so our racist white police force could be entertained at his physical expense by roughing him up. But, instead to feed him and paid for his room at the city's expense.... having went against everything i am being told about the white devils with a badge and the zombie whites southerners hankering for black skin.

The moral of this post, if there is one, is an old one. Treat strangers with kindness. Feed those who are hungry. Provide shelter to those in immediate need. And do not believe everything you think too hear or see. Let reality have its say first. There is more to the US's racial story than what is reaching the rest of us.

I reported this as truthfully as i could. I embellished nothing. I would like to hear the thoughts of others and opinions on the true racial spot the US is in (Or even countries with a similar problem). Thanks.

Unfortunately, this is not the world view of big city democrats.

Here is my experience of a similar situation. I was on lunch break and saw a well dressed black man looking desperate, walking up to people. The people all walked away. He walked up to me and I listened. He was from Ohio, just visiting, and had parked in the wrong spot (since many "no parking" signs were actually missing) and his car had been towed and he was desperately looking for help about what to do. I told him who to contact. He thanked me and told me that he had asked many people but no one would talk to him. This was in the financial district of New York City about a block from Wall Street. Welcome to modern America. I haven't seen the helpful version of America since about 20 years ago and I am honestly skeptical that it still exists.

My last personal experience with a black man was three years ago near a Walmart. I accidently bumped him in the rear end of his old car and broke one tail light and sprung his trunk open without putting a dent on it. The guy went ballistic expecting me to cower is the only thing I can think of is why he went ballistic. He said follow me and I did where he drove into a convenience store and went ballistic again. I ignored his raving and ranting and only surveyed the damage. I offered him $100 which he refused. I said I will give you $150 and not one penny more. He accepted my second offer and neither the police nor my insurance company were called. I saw him again at Walmart three months later and we looked at each other without talking showing no emotion.

great story panther and of course the media would have zero interest in it. they don't care about whites helping blacks, they want us at each other's throats. regardless of what i've written on this forum i would have helped this man too. my husband has done so several times when some poor soul has wandered into an AA meeting, desperate, filthy, been sleeping under a bridge, no money or food etc...he's helped as many blacks as he has whites. you should be proud of your town and especially your police. they are good people!
Thanks from Panther and Lyzza

this story has nothing to do with politics. some people just do things without worrying about their political party.

This is a wonderful story about compassionate people.

Sadly, there aren't enough stories like this to report ... quite the reverse in fact.

But, still, I thank you for posting it. It does give me some hope for the future of our society.

Getting rid of bad apples by shedding light into the darkness where they have free reign in NO WAY negates all of the good that humans engage in daily, even some police towards minorities or people with no power. Let us remember that please. Acting like there is some dark ulterior motive for exposing and investigating bad cops by some cop hating segment of the US population is not necessary in response to possible injustice being investigated instead of being swept under the rug.
Thanks from Gordy and Lyzza
