In 1996, a black teenager protected a white man from an angry mob who thought he supported the racist Ku Klux Klan. It was an act of extraordinary courage and kindness - and is still inspiring people today.
This is 18-year old Keshia Thomas. A KKK rally was held in her home town in Michigan. Hundreds gathered to show them they are not welcome.
A woman scremed on the megaphone, "There's a Klansman in the crowd."
They turned around to see a white man wearing a Confederate flag T-shirt. He tried to walk away from them, but the protesters, including Thomas, followed, "just to chase him out". There were shouts of "Kill the Nazi" and the man began to run - but he was knocked to the ground. A group surrounded him, kicking him and hitting him with the wooden sticks of their placards. Things were described as barbaric.
That's when the teenager (pictured above) knew it wasn't right and jumped on top of the man to save him. Keisha acted on her good heart and religion. That one moment and instinct she had shows that being a good human is the strongest action. The Full Story ~~> http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/magazine-24653643
