You can’t always judge a book by its cover they say, and this saying can’t be more correct than today.

A young girl and her father were driving down the freeway one day when their tire blew. They were on the side of the road wondering what they were going to do next, when a man decided to pull over and lend them a helping hand. The man that pulled over to help the young girl and her father was wearing a confederate flag t-shirt, had a confederate flag tattoo, and confederate flag stickers on his car.

The young girl and her father were quick to judge and were were automatically suspicious of his behavior. The man was anything but racist and helped the two in need with positive gestures and kindness.

The young girl’s mind was blown as she made a social media post about the incident. It didn’t take long before people started committing on her post about the man with the Confederate flag and turning the positive event into something negative.

 

Reported by 100percentfedup:

17-year-old “Channon” posted pictures of a white “dude” who stopped to help her dad after a tire on his vehicle blew out on the freeway. It didn’t take long for the images of kindness and unity to go viral. It also didn’t take long for black, liberal activists to turn the young teenage girls hopeful message into something ugly…

Channon tweeted: “So my dads tire blew up on the freeway and this dude, with a confederate flag tattoo, wearing a confederate flag t-shirt, with confederate flag car stickers, stopped and changed our tire. My mind is blown, don’t judge a book by its cover y’all”

So my dads tire blew up on the freeway and this dude, with a confederate flag tattoo, wearing a confederate flag t-shirt, with confederate flag car stickers, stopped and changed our tire. My mind is blown, don’t judge a book by its cover y’all ??‍♀️

It wasn’t long before Twitter users reacted.

Most of the comments positive. Many Twitter users reminded the teenager that you can’t judge a book by its cover, or that the Confederate flag is not a sign of racism, but instead, a symbol of pride in their southern heritage.

“A.D’ called the young white “dude” a “roadside angel”. He also commented that is was “Good to hear something nice for a change.”

Well, I’ve always heard roadside angels show up in many forms. I’m thankful this young man took the time to help your father out. I suppose you can’t always judge a man’s character by his tee shirt. Good to hear something nice for a change.

This Twtter user responded by saying: “It truly is the character of the person that matters most regardless of race color creed or religion. This was a fine example of those wise words made famous by years ago MLK. Nice to see people giving and sharing yet asking no quarter in these USA then now and into our future.”

“Quinton Reviews” explained that just because someone displays the Confederate flag, it doesn’t make them a “racist”. He told Channon: A lot of southern people literally don’t see the confederate flag as a symbol of the race debate. Of course, it BLATANTLY is, but people who read supporters of the flag as racist don’t get the squabble. It’s more “this flag is my home” vs “that flag has a racist history.”

“Vespi” responded by calling people she doesn’t even know, who were making positive comments about the sweet gesture, “white supremacist trump supporters” who are “liking and commenting on this post”.

This girl is soft shoe c??ning. I blame the parents.

Vespi@Vespii009

I also notice how a lot of suspected white supremacist trump supporters are liking and commenting on this post so that tells you everything you need to know.

But the prize for the biggest racist goes to the liberal black activist who screams about how he and the entire black community are victims of “racism” every chance he gets while spewing racist, derogatory and vile generalizations about white people, without even giving it a second thought. Apparently, Tariq’s form of racism is okay on Twitter, and it doesn’t appear to violate their standards, because after all, Tariq is black and he’s only being racist towards whites…

This here is why Black parents should teach their children about how white supremacy works at a young age. Just because a SWS does a good deed for an INDIVIDUAL Black person, that doesn’t mean he is not going to stop maintaining SYSTEMATIC white supremacy
