Although the world has made progress when it comes to racism and prejudice, it still exists all over the world today. This is why it’s important for parents to teach their kids from the start about valuing everyone’s life equally and not judging someone based on their race, appearance or sexual orientation.
A shining example of this is an 8-year-old girl named Autumn, whose actions while defending a black man against racist remarks she heard while at KFC have gone viral.
Here’s her inspiring story.
Eight-year-old Autumn was getting food at a local KFC in White Center, Washington with her mother Danee when she overheard a remark that a customer made at a worker behind the counter who was black.
The worker was preparing an order when the customer began to make a scene in the restaurant.
As Autumn and her mother waited in line to order their food, the customer began to yell at the KFC workers. He stated that he absolutely refused to eat anything that had been cooked or prepared by a black man.
The customer continued to shout, refusing to allow the black man to take his order. He demanded that a different employee takes his order and prepares his food.
