The people at the daily post suggested the following prompt of “Ripped from the Headlines!” for us to write about today. They included two sentences giving us more directions – “Head to your favorite online news source. Pick an article with a headline that grabs you. Now, write a short story based on the article. ”
Article from Mad World News
The article I selected was “White Woman Caught In Vulnerable Moment, Black Guy Rolled Up & Took Over”. Paints a different picture than most of today’s articles about the interaction of white people and people of African descent.
Listening to today’s news on television had my mind thinking this would be a bloody outcome of some sorts! Thankfully, I was wrong. The colored hgentleman did not hurt these women in any way, he went out of his way to make sure they would be safe during their travels!
Not only did he take a look under the hood of their car to try and diagnose what was wrong, he drove them using his own car, to a place so they could purchase the needed parts (replacement car battery). Once they returned to the disabled vehicle, he installed the new part and checked the oil level in their car! Thankfully he knew about the inner workings of an automobile’s engine.
Media today can be disceiving
This is not what you might think would be coming from a place not too far from Ferguson, MO. No rape, looting, or gun shots involved! Just a young man helping a single woman in distress. He was not afraid to do actual work to help others.
