In case you needed another reason why you shouldn’t share everything you see on Facebook, a Kansas City man was humiliated on Facebook after doing nothing more than walking.
A black man was waiting to pick up his child in school in order to walk the child home. While waiting, he decided to walk around the neighborhood when a local woman pulled up in her car, took a picture of the man and said “I got you.” She then allegedly posted the man’s picture on a neighborhood Facebook page with the warning that her neighbors should watch out for this man. The picture made it back to the man’s friends and family which he says has left him humiliated.
This man says he just wants to put it behind him, but if I was him I would be pursuing legal actions to make an example out of this woman for being such a racist, and for spreading such bullshit on the already polluted pages of Facebook.
In the past, I’ve posted about how such posts have ruined the lives of people, and even caused one man to take his own life. If you know someone who shares unfounded trash like this on Facebook, consider sharing this or any of the other stories with them. It may be blunt, but they probably deserve it.
