"Bless him. I love the way he said that he would give 10% to his church. That's true gratitude when someone thinks of already giving what they have received, especially when they don't have much."
Another display of goodwill
Meanwhile, Briefly News previously reported that a procession of bikers in America showed what humanity is all about as they took time out to encourage a little black girl selling lemonade on the street.
In a viral video shared by @kingtundeednut on Instagram, a man got off his bike as his fellow bikers stopped, revving their engines in the background. The bikers all came down to show the girl support as they all bought the lemonade.
A show of love
He approached the girl to ask how she is doing. Beside him, a fellow female biker brought out her wallet, ready to buy the girl's lemonade. Seconds after, other bikers approached her table as they waited for their turns so the girl and her sister could attend to them.
Many have praised the act in the short video, saying it perfectly shows why racism should never have a place in society. As at the time of writing this report, the video has over 21,000 likes with more than 143,000 views.
Briefly News compiled some of the reactions below:
