Don’t our wonderful volunteers in Hatzalah do this on a daily basis (for Jews and blacks), wheres their reward?
Don’t our wonderful volunteers in Shomrim do this on a daily basis (for Jews and black), wheres their reward?
I can link dozens of stories like the two above of regular people who risked their life to do the right thing without getting an award (Google it and see for yourself). Whats NYPD agenda by trying to award this “black” person for doing the right thing?
If I was this black man, I would be insulted at the prospect of receiving and award for doing the right thing. It’s like “WOW!!! A BLACK MAN DID THE RIGHT THING, WE NEED TO REWARD HIM!!! THIS IS SOMETHING WE RARELY SEE”. If it was a white of Jewish guy that intervened to help a fellow white or Jewish person being attacked or whatever have you, no big deal, it’s expected, but a BLACK MAN helping a Jew or white man ? Got to give him a reward.
For those (in the comments on COLLIES discussing as to whether the headline COL used –Black Man to the Rescue – is racist or not.
No the headline is not racist. It’s not racist to describe a person as black. It’s just a description.
What is racist is the fact that he’s being rewarded because and only because he’s black.
