A Ku Klux Klan rally in South Carolina to protest the removal of the Confederate flag let the world see the incredible heart of Black Police Officer Leroy Smith in the face of blatant hate and racism.
An elderly KKK protester wearing a Nazi t-shirt began feeling the effects of the heat. Officer Smith stepped in amongst the racists and helped the man up the stairs and out the heat.
The photo taken by Rob Godfrey of the Associated Press captures the beautiful moment. It shows that the best way to fight racism is with kindness and humanity.
