Say It's Not PC. I Don't Care

People are saying everyone thinks this guy is funny because he talks like a working class black man. Well, he does, but he's also brutally honest, and I find that refreshing. People can laugh all they want, but I would be very happy to have a good guy like this as my neighbor. I'd feel safer with someone like him around.

This is an early interview with a local TV station as this was unfolding.

Yeah, I don't think anything he is doing or saying is funny, odd or inappropriate. If you ask me he's just having a "What the Fuck just happened here?" moment, which I think is completely understandable given the circumstances. If he wasn't, THEN I'd think he wierd or unhinged.

I agree. If he was too calm, I'd be creeped out by him.

From comments by friends and former employers, he did censor himself, as he has a tendency towards lots of profanity when he talks.

It's sickening how when someone like him does something noble and heroic, instead of praising him people make fun and start stupid internet memes instead.

Even the memes are a way of complimenting him, IMO. I haven't really seen any name-calling, except the usual trolls on YouTube in the comments.

But to slightly change a good quote that puts it in perspective: He rescued three women; they made a comment.

He did exactly the right thing. It took a kind of courage to break the door to let her out-- the way racism has been, it could have got him shot by some cop or vigilante before they knew he was rescuing a group of abduction victims. And telling people any reward money should go to the women-- extremely insightful. The victims will probably need years of therapy and medications, because it would be a miracle if they don't have PTSD and other issues. I like him.

I'm not familiar with the internet memes but I didn't find this guy "funny," he was just a normal guy talking about some crazy thing that just happened...? Thanks to him for not being a selfish jerk who doesn't do anything when a stranger is in trouble.
