So LaFontaine later sent a second text saying that he was successful in getting his car free, but he said that that wasn't the hard part. The hard part was cold calling a white lady (LaFontaine is Black man) a few doors down to let him use her shovel. I just pictured him saying, "It's cool. You can just leave it on the porch and go inside and lock the door. I won't step any closer until you get inside . . ."
Isn't it sad that racism and fear is still so prevalent in the world? We can't even band together in our hour of need during a storm to help our fellow man without letting our fear and ignorance get in the way?
|I think I can see the top of LaFontaine's car!|
Did you guys get hit by this beast of a snow storm? Also, why the F do I live here anyway? . . .
