A teenage girl posted a picture of a man helping her father change his tire and her photo set social media on fire. The controversial photograph showed a “white dude” helping her black father and it wasn’t the tire that caused everyone to go into an uproar, but it was something else. The white man was wearing a shirt that many people found offensive. The black man seemed to think nothing of it. The black man’s daughter was shocked as well. There’s a good chance the daughter expected a man who was wearing that particular shirt to be a raging, angry person who disliked people of color. It wasn’t even close.
The white man’s shirt had the Confederate flag on it. It’s a symbol that has come under fire recently by people claiming it’s racist and everyone who wears it must be racist as well. Make no mistake, the white man who helped a black man change a tire sure wasn’t racist. Just because he was wearing a controversial shirt, that doesn’t mean he’s a horrible person. The young lady saw that what she had previously heard about people wearing the Confederate symbol was completely wrong. The man wasn’t racist at all. It was nothing less than two Americans having a helping moment and enjoying a short chat.
When the young lady posted her experience on Twitter, that’s when it got out of hand. People turned a good experience into a horrible race-baiting experience, showing the true colors of who the horrible people really are.
Here is her message that speaks volumes of her beautiful character and life lesson she just learned:
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 🤷🏽♀️ pic.twitter.com/CEjcDcjbSo

She had a ton of positive messages, but some bad ones as well.
Here are a few replies that she received.
A.D: “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.”
Brooke M Moore: “90% of those who support the confederate flag are the nicest most helpful people you’ll ever meet. The flags truly a symbol of heritage for them. Doesn’t mean they agree with their ancestors decisions. What one thinks is right today may not be right tomorrow.”
Clete Torres: “Stop looking at everything though a melanin lens.
Far fewer whites are racist than you seem to believe.”
InvesterStallone: “Your mind is blown because you have been programmed to believe that proud, southern, white males hate you. It’s just not the case. Maybe @kanyewest is right?”
Jon Elberg: “I’m sorry you’re catching so much crap about your post. I got out of it exactly what you intended, that you can’t judge a book by its cover. I hope you & your father are doing well.”
THe Notorious POS: “Lots of white people died to end slavery, and many who fought for the South were abolitionists. The Confederate flag is about States rights, not racism.
Only about 4% of whites in the south “owned” slaves — and many free black people “owned” slaves:”
Christopher Wilson: “In Texas? We don’t identify people by color here. Texans are Texans no matter their color or ethnicity. Once you are one of us you will always be. Hence why we have the “pride” everyone is jealous of.”
Jeff Reisman: “I live in North Georgia. I see this kind of thing all the time. People treating others as they would want to be treated, regardless of race or anything. Americans are getting along fine in a lot of places.”
Drew Boothe: “Things are not what they seem. What is seen as a symbol of hatred by some is not seen the same way by others. In such cases, the hatred is in the eye of the beholder.”
Will aka Mr Fearful: “After seeing this it made me realize that people judge me for my confederate flag and I don’t even know it. I fly that flag for one reason. Proud to be from the south. It’s not about the ideals from the civil war it’s about being proud to be from the southern US. I love it here”
The best part of this story is that we can take the color out of the situation and realize that we simply have two Americans having an experience, helping each other, and it doesn’t matter what they were wearing or what color their skin is. We are all Americans and we help each other without thinking twice. The racist propaganda that some people nevertheless persist to push is nothing more than a reflection of their own self-hatred.
Someone named Vespi wrote this and it was very immature and untrue: “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.”
This person targeted tons of people who liked the original post, which had received over 100,000 ‘likes’ and nearly 30,000 retweets at the time of this article.
The sad part of this is that some people went after the white man just because of the shirt he was wearing. Is that irresponsible to target a helpful man just because of his shirt?
Why can’t we have a story of two grown men helping each other without it turning into a sad situation? Some of the people who responded to Channon’s Twitter post turned it into a racist tirade. We refused to share their comments so that we can focus on the positive aspect.
Share this to your friends so people realize that our country is not filled with racists, even though some people continue pretending it is.

First Video of Latest Trump Star Vandal Swinging Pickaxe Shows What Happened – Spread Like Wildfire
TMZ is now reporting that the LAPD has released the first video and has made an arrest in connection with the unhinged destruction of President Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame this week. In it, a man used a pickaxe to unleash his intense frustration and anger at the president and shred the star to pieces.
The suspect, who has been identified as 24-year-old Austin Clay, was arrested on Wednesday and released early Thursday morning on bail, according to Los Angeles County Sheriff Department’s online records. A department spokesman later said he had been held on bail of $20,000 on a charge of felony vandalism. It wasn’t immediately clear who posted bail for Mr. Clay but unsubstantiated rumors were circulating that the money came from a gofundme page which was set up right after the arrest.
In this latest incident, LAPD later confirmed that they received a call around 3:30 a.m. Wednesday morning claiming that someone had taken a pickaxe to President Trump’s Hollywood star. The police later confirmed that the vandal had pulled a pickax out of a guitar case and proceeded to smash the star which is located on the 6800 block of Hollywood Boulevard.
Here is more on this via Hot Air:
“It’s a victory for La Résistance, one supposes, but mainly just another demonstration of empty nihilism. Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame got attacked by a vandal with a pickaxe this morning, the latest in a series of attempts to deface the installation. This attempt was a little more complete than others:
President Donald Trump’s star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame was destroyed Wednesday morning by a man with a pickax that witnesses say he concealed in a guitar case, police said.
Officers were called around 3:30 a.m. to the star’s location on Hollywood Boulevard near Highland Avenue, where they found a small pile of rubble in place of the star that Trump received in January 2007 for his role in the NBC show “The Apprentice.”
The suspect later turned himself in to Beverly Hills police, after having conducted the vandalism in full view of a number of witnesses:
Even at in the pre-dawn hours, there were a number of witnesses to the destruction, including two security guards and a Walgreens worker who was on her way to work.
“I just seen a guy going to town on, I guess, the ground or whatever,” Patricia Cox said. “I didn’t know what was going on. …
A man turned himself in at the Beverly Hills Police Department at about 4:30 a.m. in connection with the destroyed star.
Trump’s star had to be replaced after being vandalized in October 2016 by a man dressed as a construction worker. James Otis used a pix ax and a sledgehammer then, and later pleaded no contest to felony vandalism.
Since Trump announced his candidacy and his subsequent election, the star has been a magnet for visitors unhappy with the current political climate. It has been defaced by tourists and dogs, had a model of a border wall built around it, and covered with “I resist” stickers.
All of which make perpetrators feel good about themselves, and … well, that’s just about it. All of these attacks, on a sidewalk or on other such locations, are the political equivalent of masturbation. It doesn’t even have the political impact of an honest, legal protest, which requires at least some coherent thought and rhetoric. Instead of mindless lust, it’s mindless rage, directed at an object no one really cares about except the people who will have to pay to have it repaired. And repaired and replaced it inevitably will be, which makes this exercise entirely pointless except for the revenue the city will get from the fines it will impose on the perpetrator.
But hey, at least the perp didn’t have to do any real work, like make an argument or organize to change the status quo. Probably because he’s incapable of either, frankly.”
What is wrong with these people? It’s okay to not agree with the president, or have voted for Hillary Clinton instead of him, and express your own opinion about what he’s doing in office, but it’s unacceptable for an adult to do that by vandalizing. What makes it worse is that in doing so, he’s supported by many others who somehow accept this as a good expression of speech and allegedly financially support him in doing so. That, combined with the notoriety he receives from it, is a winning combination for attention deprived activists.
Bail handouts or not, until some of these vandals and anti-Trump attackers are locked up for pulling stunts like this, things won’t stop. Maybe if all these so-called “resist” people focused on what they could do for their own lives to improve them, rather than blaming all their issues on Trump being president, they would find meaning in their life, rather than lurking around in the middle of the night destroying public property.
Hillary’s Big TV Sitcom Debut Coming To CBS This Fall With An Infuriating Show Theme
“It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse…”
Hillary Clinton is set to be a guest-star who will star as herself when she makes an appearance on a major sitcom. The show will also feature two other former secretaries of the state. It’s the show on CBS titled Madam Secretary and Hillary will be on the show along with Madeleine Albright and Colin Powell. They will play themselves on the show, which might be infuriating to some people as not everyone appears to be a fan of Hillary Clinton thanks to all the alleged scandals she’s been involved in.
It appears as though it might only be a single episode, but the fact that Clinton, the most scandalous of the three former secretaries, would be playing herself. People might wonder if part of her debut will show her deleting emails one at a time. Will the show go into what happened with Benghazi? Will the show discuss Clinton having the Democratic nominee ripped out of Bernie Sanders heart? Although, that part is ironic because socialist Sanders learned what it felt like to have something he worked for taken and given to someone else.
Is Hillary hoping to have the same success on the big screen that Roseanne did? Not sure that will happen considering the number of people who are very upset with Clinton and her allegations.
“The fictional secretary of state of CBS’ Madam Secretary will turn to three former real-life holders of the post when the show begins its fifth season this fall.
Hillary Clinton, Colin Powell and Madeleine Albright will appear as themselves in the episode, set to air Sunday, Oct. 7. The trio filmed their cameos on July 11, Madam Secretary‘s first week back in production.
“We’re delighted to have these three former secretaries of state be part of our season premiere,” said series creator and executive producer Barbara Hall. “It was a privilege to experience their perspectives and discourse both in and behind the scenes.”
Added executive producer Lori McCreary: “Having three powerhouses of diplomacy agree to come on our show is awe-inspiring and humbling. And that we were able to find a time in their busy schedules when they were all available is a miracle.”
In the episode, Secretary of State Elizabeth McCord (Tea Leoni) asks Albright, Powell and Clinton for advice on a delicate matter.
Albright served as secretary of state from 1997-2001 under President Bill Clinton and was the first woman to hold the post. She has appeared on Madam Secretary once before, guest-starring early in season two. She also has played herself on Parks and Recreation and Gilmore Girls.
Powell was President George W. Bush’s secretary of state from 2001-05. The former chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff had an uncredited cameo on JAG in 1997.
Clinton served under President Barack Obama as secretary of state from 2009-13. She did a cameo on Broad City in 2016 and appeared opposite her Saturday Night Live portrayer, Kate McKinnon, in 2015.”
Good thing it’s just a cameo because I’m not sure Hillary’s health would hold up with the brutal schedule that some actors go through. Hours of makeup, multiple takes, and that doesn’t even include walking up and down steps in foreign countries. On that note, it might include an updated wardrobe to help get Hillary out of those pantsuits and muumuus.
Keep your eyes peeled for this episode as it will likely go viral once commentators pick apart the pieces worth sharing on news outlets and social media.
If you’re wondering about Roseanne’s success, then here’s an excerpt from Deadline: “The ratings records keep coming for the debut of ABC’s Roseanne revival last week. After setting a new record for the largest-ever total viewer Live+3 lift, the sitcom’s Season 10 opener has scored TV’s largest-ever Total Viewer L+7 increase for any single telecast on any network with a big +8.81 million viewer lift over its L+SD tally. That topped the previous high,+7.86 million gain for the 9/25/17 debut of ABC’s new drama The Good Doctor. After seven days of delayed viewing, the audience of the Roseanne premiere has grown to 27.26 million total viewers (from 18.45 million in Live+Same Day).”
Hillary probably won’t come anywhere close to getting numbers like these. In fact, this is the first time I’ve ever heard of the show Madam Secretary, so maybe it’s not that popular anyway. Having Hillary on the show now seems like nothing more than a gimmick to pick up some viewers.
