房屋仲介稱客戶「窮鬼」,發生什麼才會讓你相信命運?

看到種族主義在今天這個時代仍然如此普遍,這很讓人傷心!種族主義和歧視從來沒有得到任何人在生活中很遠。就像這個種族主義的地產經紀人如何失去了他可能獲得的最優惠的交易之一。

這種歧視的受害者是來自新加坡的商人Bhai Hafiz Angullia。 Bhai正在尋找一個寬敞的家,存放他的一些舊家具,音樂設備,舊地板材料(來自他的公司)和其他貴重物品。

哈佛大學畢業生在東海岸路旁找到一間可愛的住宅平房,租金合理。距離他目前的住宅也只有兩分鐘的車程。於是,他給房產經紀人發了一個見面會。在信中,Bhai已經明確表示他的意圖與房子有什麼關係。

他說,

 “我可能會將1或2間臥室轉租出去以抵消租金,因為我不會將它作為辦公室使用,而且主要用於存儲。”

“我認為像這樣的房子更實際的做法是出租1或2間臥室。無論如何,它是一座有地的房子,有大臥室。“

這位代理聽起來非常好,並且在他的回復中表示,

嗨Bhai先生,業主不會有這個問題。你有空在下午3點30分在單位見面嗎?“

當然,Bhai對此並不陌生,隨著時間的推移,他穿上了一件簡單的T恤和短褲,然後穿上拖鞋。無論如何,他本人並不打算打扮,因為這本來是他家附近的短會。

當Bhai接近房子時,他注意到代理從Uber或Grab車下車。他看起來像是50多歲,穿著短袖襯衫和牛仔褲。

當Bhai開車把車開進家門時,代理人打開了門廊。有一次,特工甚至轉身了一會兒,然後他打開大門的格柵,向Bhai發出友好的“打招呼”。

Bhai繼續關掉髮動機,下車並鎖上了它。當他走向他的經紀人時,他發現有什麼不對勁。他說,

“我注意到他所擁有的微笑已經消失了,而他在我車裡時給我的歡迎姿態現在變成了一種冷漠的東西。”

 

 

不過,作為一個彬彬有禮的男人,Bhai給予了禮貌的問候,但是地產代理的回應讓Bhai流失了。

該代理人表示,

“你是Bhai先生啊?你不是中國人?你想在房子裡存放什麼啊?“

“如果你做任何非法的生意或任何非法的商店啊,我作為代理人和業主都不會有問題叫你上警察!”

商人不敢相信他的耳朵。在他走向種族主義者並告訴他之前,他花了2秒鍾堅持自己。

“F * ck你,你這一塊狗屎。你很幸運,你是一個老人。“

然後,他開始開車回家。

在今天這個時代,特別是在像新加坡這樣的第一世界國家,令人震驚的是種族主義是多麼流行。

不幸的是,對於這位老人來說,他已經失去了一個成為種族主義者進行交易的絕好機會。如果他根據他的外表和種族不會歧視Bhai,他會取得很好的成績。

我們都應該學會不要基於膚色對人進行歧視!不要那樣對待人……好吧不好。

Auto komt weg bij achtervolging. Als u de rijder ziet, valt u van de stoel

Beeldmateriaal van de politieagent die vorig jaar de meeste DIW-arrestaties in New Mexico heeft gedaan, laat hem een ​​te snel rijdende vrouw zien. Nadat hij haar heeft vastgehouden, wordt hij even later door emotie overmand nadat hij een paar woorden heeft uitgewisseld met de jonge dochter van de vrouw. Het is dit moment dat mensen op YouTube het eens zijn: “Nu is er een man met een goede moraal.”

In oktober 2017 had politieman van de staat Toby Lafave in New Mexico 113 arrestaties verricht.

Lafave zag een bestuurder in een gouden Cadilac die meer dan 90 km / u langs de Interstate 40 reed. De bestuurder woog gevaarlijk door het verkeer.

Toen hij de vrouwelijke bestuurder overhaalde, zag Lafave snel een jong meisje dat losgegespt zat, zittend op de voorbank. Lafave vroeg de vrouw, Yvonne Ukestine, haar reden om zo snel te rijden. Ze vertelde hem: “Ik was bang.”

Ukestine voegde eraan toe dat ze bang was voor de snelweg.

Lafave ging naar Ukestine vragen om uit de auto te stappen en ontdekte dat ze onzeker was.
Ukestine heeft hem zelfs afgesneden toen hij haar ondervroeg.

“Ik ben een tijdje achter je geweest”, vertelde hij haar.

Ze probeerde Lafave uit te leggen dat ze net uit een concert was gekomen en zich zorgen maakte om haar zes jaar oude nichtje.

Haar nicht zat op de voorbank.

“Ik denk dat ze bang is,” zegt ze in de politie video.

Lafave antwoordt door te zeggen: “Ja, ik weet zeker dat ze dat is. Ik zou bang zijn, vooral de manier waarop je aan het rijden was. Ik zou ook bang zijn. ‘

Toen Lafave de dame begon te testen voor dronken rijden, gaf ze toe dat ze dronken was na het falen van verschillende tests. Lafave arresteerde haar toen.

Nadat ze de vrouw in zijn politie-eenheid had gestopt, vond Lafave kinderwagens in de kofferbak van de auto van de vrouw.

Het meisje probeerde de kofferbak van de auto te sluiten.

“Hé schat, ik snap het, ik snap het wel,” vertelde hij haar.

Terwijl hij aan het telefoneren was om iemand op te halen om de nicht van Ukestine op te halen, brak hij plotseling in.

Volgens KRQE was Lafave op een bepaald moment zo emotioneel dat hij nauwelijks aan de telefoon kon praten.

Terwijl Lafave terugliep naar de auto van Ukestine, zei hij tegen een andere officier: “Dat doet mijn hart pijn doen.”

Hij kon niet anders dan zeggen: “God, het breekt mijn hart”, terwijl hij terugliep naar zijn patrouillewagen.

Ukestine moest rijden met een handicap, maar bereikte een pleidooiovereenkomst op 20 oktober 2017.

Het rapport verwarde een aantal mensen online, die vroegen waarom de officier het begaf bij het zien van de kinderwagens. Een local die het nieuws zag uitgelegd in de comments-sectie van de YouTube-video: “De emoties van het redden van het kind van mogelijk een ernstig ongeluk van de dronken vrouw bedolven hem.”

Ondanks dat het rapport de feitelijke reden niet verduidelijkt, blijft de kijker achter met die indruk.

Een andere persoon schreef: “Wanneer een politieambtenaar zo in tranen uiteen valt, weet je dat hij [echt] de echte deal is. Dit zijn de soorten officieren die we nodig hebben. ‘

Car escapes cops during chase. Once you see the driver you’ll fall off the chair

Footage of the police officer who made the most amount of DIW arrests in New Mexico last year shows him pulling over a speeding woman. After apprehending her, he’s overcome by emotion moments later after he exchanges a few words with the woman’s young daughter. It’s this moment that has people on YouTube agreeing—“Now there’s a man with good moral.”

By October 2017, State Police Officer Toby Lafave in New Mexico had made 113 arrests.

Lafave saw a driver in a gold Cadilac that was exceeding 90 mph down Interstate 40. The driver was weaving dangerously through the traffic.

When he pulled the female driver over, Lafave was quick to notice a young girl who was unbuckled, sitting in the front seat. Lafave asked the woman, Yvonne Ukestine, her reason for driving so fast. She told him, “I was scared.”

Ukestine added that she was scared of the freeway.

Lafave proceeded to ask Ukestine to step out of the car and found that she was unsteady.
Ukestine even cut him off when he questioned her.

“I’ve been behind you for awhile,” he told her.

She tried to explain to Lafave that she had just come out of a concert and was worried for her 6-year-old niece.

Her niece was sitting in the front seat.

“I think she’s scared,” she says, in the police video.

Lafave replies by saying: “Yeah, I’m sure she is. I’d be afraid, especially the way you were driving. I’d be afraid, too.”

When Lafave started testing the lady for drunk driving, she admitted that she was intoxicated after failing several tests. Lafave then arrested her.

After putting the woman in his police unit, Lafave found strollers in the trunk of the woman’s car.

The girl was trying to close the trunk of the car.

“Hey baby, I’ll get it, I’ll get it,” he told her.

While he was on the phone arranging for someone to pick up Ukestine’s niece, he suddenly broke down.

According to KRQE, Lafave was so emotional at one point that he could hardly speak on the phone.

As Lafave walked back to Ukestine’s car, he told another officer, “That makes my heart hurt.”

He couldn’t help but say, “God, it breaks my heart,” as he walked back to his patrol car.

Ukestine was charged with driving while impaired but reached a plea deal on Oct. 20, 2017.

The report confused a number of people online, who asked why the officer broke down at the sight of the strollers. A local who saw the news explained in the comments section of the YouTube video, “The emotions of saving the child from possibly being in a severe accident from the woman driving drunk overwhelmed him.”

Despite the report not clarifying the actual reason, the viewer is left with that impression.

Another person wrote: “When a police officer breaks down in tears like this, you know he’s [sic] the real deal. These are the types of officers we need.”

Folle course poursuite de la police. Sa cause à vous faire grincer les dents!

Les images de l’officier de police qui a fait le plus grand nombre d’arrestations au DIW au Nouveau-Mexique l’année dernière le montrent en train de tirer sur une femme en excès de vitesse. Après l’avoir appréhendée, il est envahi par l’émotion quelques instants plus tard après avoir échangé quelques mots avec la jeune fille de la femme. C’est ce moment qui fait que les gens sur YouTube sont d’accord: “Maintenant, il y a un homme qui a une bonne morale”.

En octobre 2017, Toby Lafave, un agent de la police nationale du Nouveau-Mexique, avait procédé à 113 arrestations.

Lafave a vu un pilote dans un Cadilac en or qui dépassait 90 mph sur l’Interstate 40. Le conducteur se faufilait dangereusement à travers la circulation.

Quand il tira la conductrice, Lafave remarqua rapidement une jeune fille qui était débouclée, assise sur le siège avant. Lafave a demandé à la femme, Yvonne Ukestine, sa raison de conduire si vite. Elle lui a dit: “J’avais peur.”

Ukestine a ajouté qu’elle avait peur de l’autoroute.

Lafave a alors demandé à Ukestine de sortir de la voiture et a constaté qu’elle était instable.
Ukestine l’a même coupé quand il l’a interrogée.

“Je suis derrière toi depuis un moment,” lui dit-il.

Elle a essayé d’expliquer à Lafave qu’elle venait juste de sortir d’un concert et qu’elle était inquiète pour sa nièce de six ans.

Sa nièce était assise sur le siège avant.

“Je pense qu’elle a peur”, dit-elle dans la vidéo de police.

Lafave répond en disant: “Oui, je suis sûr qu’elle l’est. J’aurais peur, surtout de la façon dont tu conduisais. J’aurais aussi peur. ”

Lorsque Lafave a commencé à tester la dame pour conduite en état d’ébriété, elle a admis qu’elle était en état d’ébriété après avoir échoué à plusieurs tests. Lafave l’a alors arrêtée.

Après avoir mis la femme dans son unité de police, Lafave a trouvé des poussettes dans le coffre de la voiture de la femme.

La fille essayait de fermer le coffre de la voiture.

“Hey bébé, je l’aurai, je l’aurai,” lui dit-il.

Pendant qu’il téléphonait pour que quelqu’un ramasse la nièce d’Ukestine, il s’est soudainement effondré.

Selon KRQE, Lafave était si ému à un moment donné qu’il pouvait à peine parler au téléphone.

Alors que Lafave retournait à la voiture d’Ukestine, il a dit à un autre officier: «Cela me fait mal au cœur.

Il ne pouvait s’empêcher de dire: «Dieu, ça me brise le cœur», alors qu’il retournait à sa voiture de patrouille.

Ukestine a été accusé de conduite avec facultés affaiblies, mais a conclu un accord de plaidoyer le 20 octobre 2017.

Le rapport a confondu un certain nombre de personnes en ligne, qui ont demandé pourquoi l’officier est tombé en panne à la vue des promeneurs. Un local qui a vu les nouvelles expliqué dans la section des commentaires de la vidéo YouTube, “Les émotions de sauver l’enfant d’être éventuellement dans un accident grave de la femme au volant saoul l’accablé.”

Malgré le rapport ne clarifie pas la raison réelle, le spectateur est laissé avec cette impression.

Une autre personne a écrit: «Quand un policier s’écroule en larmes comme ça, vous savez qu’il est la vraie personne. Ce sont les types d’officiers dont nous avons besoin. ”

College Student Waits 1 Hour Beside Scratched Car, Gets Sponsored for 4-Year Tuition Fee

Honesty is the best policy. Although it’s a century old saying, it has proven to be still relevant even in today’s society.

Recently, a college student from Yunan, China was rewarded with a sponsorship after waiting for an hour beside a car she had just accidentally scratched.

On September 2, the 18-year-old girl named Zhang had just finished registering at the college and she cycled to a bank nearby to deposit her pocket money. Everything was looking great so far for her first semester at the college.

However, Zhang accidentally scratched a luxury car (Lexus ES 350) that was parked in a parking slot as she was too busy looking at the signboard. She panicked, but instead of bolting away, she decided to wait by the car until the owner came back.

After an hour of standing under the hot sun, the car owner finally showed up. She plucked up her courage and said to the man,

“Uncle, are you the owner of this car? I’m very sorry about it. I accidentally scratched your car with my bicycle, and I’ve been waiting for you.”

The man known as Zang, who works for a property firm found three scratch marks on the car doors. He said,

“I was curious seeing a girl standing beside my car. She seemed to be in a panic and scared when I first saw her. When I got to know that she waited under the hot sun for an hour, I was deeply touched. I told her that no compensation was needed.”

Zhang broke down in tears upon hearing that. With sweat dripping down from her forehead, she bowed to the car owner and thanked him sincerely for not holding her responsible.

A brief conversation then took place between them, that’s when the man learnt that Zhang came from a poor family and the 8,000Yuan (approx. RM5,100) for college registration was also from a loan.

Soon, this heartwarming story of an honest young girl owning up to her fault reached the director of the property firm that Zang was working at. He was amazed by the girl’s bravery and honesty.

“The scratched car was a Lexus, and it cost around 700,000Yuan (approx. RM446,300). After inspection, the cost of repairing the car was set at 2,000Yuan (approx. RM1280).

“However, the girl’s family wasn’t financially well off and it’d be rubbing salt on their wound if we asked her to pay up.

“So, not only should we not ask her to pay, we should help her to complete her college education,” the director said.

Aside from sponsoring Zhang’s 4-year tuition fees, the girl will also be offered a position in the company upon graduation, if she’s willing to work at the company. Looks like her first job after graduation is set!

Zhang’s honesty and courage of owning her fault are something we don’t see often in society nowadays. Anyway, we wish Zhang best of luck for her journey in the college.

За авто женеться поліція. Дізнаєтесь, як все було, ваші зуби заскрегочуть!

Мультиплікація поліцейського, яка в минулому році зробила найбільшу кількість арештів ДІУ в Нью-Мексико, показує, що він затягує жінку, що перевищує швидкість. Після затримання її, він подоланий емоційними моментами пізніше, коли він обміняється кількома словами з молодою донькою жінки. Це той момент, коли люди на YouTube погоджуються – “Зараз є людина з хорошим моралі”.

До жовтня 2017 року штатний поліцейський Тобі Лафаве в Нью-Мексіко зробив 113 арештів.

Лафаве побачив водія у золотому Cadilac, який перевищував швидкість, що перевищувала 90 миль / год. Міждержавний 40. Водій тратило небезпечне ткацтво.

Коли він витягнув водія-водія, Лафаве швидко помітила молоду дівчину, яка була розстебнута, сидячи на передньому сидінні. Лафаве поцікавився жінку, Івонні Укєстіні, її причину їхати так швидко. Вона сказала йому: “Я злякався”.

Уксестин додав, що вона боїться автостради.

Лафаве почав вимагати від Укштейна вийти з машини і виявив, що вона нестабільна.
Уксетин навіть відрізав його, коли запитав її.

“Я був за вами на деякий час”, – сказав він їй.

Вона намагалася пояснити Лафаве, що вона щойно вийшла з концерту і переживала за свою 6-річну племінницю.

Її племінниця сиділа на передньому сидінні.

“Я думаю, вона боїться”, – каже вона в поліцейському відео.

Лафаве відповідає, кажучи: “Так, я впевнений, що вона є. Я боюсь, особливо, як ти їхав. Я теж боюся “.

Коли Лафаве почав протестувати даму за воді у нетверезому стані, вона зізналася, що вона була в нетверезому стані після декількох тестів. Лафаве потім заарештував її.

Після введення жінки в поліцейське відділення, Лафаве знайшов коляски у багажнику жіночої машини.

Дівчина намагалася закрити тулуб автомобіля.

“Привіт, дитинка, я отримаю це, я отримаю це”, сказав він їй.

Поки він перебував на телефоні, щоб когось забрати племінницю Увестіна, він раптом зламався.

За словами KRQE, Лафаве був настільки емоційним в один момент, що він навряд чи міг говорити по телефону.

Коли Лафаве пішов назад до автомобіля Уквестіна, він сказав іншому офіцеві: “Це завдає серця біль”.

Він не міг не сказати: «Боже, це розбиває моє серце», як він повернувся до свого патрульного автомобіля.

Укєстині було пред’явлено звинувачення у водінню під час знецінення, але досягла скарги на 20 жовтня 2017 року.

Доповідь заплутала багатьох людей в Інтернеті, які запитували, чому офіцер зламався на очах колясок. Місцевий чиновник, який побачив ці новини в розділі коментарів на відео YouTube, сказав: “Емоції збереження дитини від можливої ​​важкої нещасливої ​​поведінки від жінки, що рухаються п’яним, перевантажені”.

Незважаючи на те, що у звіті не з’ясовано фактичну причину, глядач залишив це враження.

Інша особа писала: “Коли поліцейський розбивається на сльози, як це, ви знаєте, що це справжня угода. Це ті типи офіцерів, котрі нам потрібні “.

Colorado brain cancer patient, 4, hits home run during college baseball game

Raw video: Air Force Academy and University of New Mexico baseball teams help Lio Ortega, who’s battling brain cancer, hit a home run before their game in Colorado Springs.

A 4-year-old fighting brain cancer hit a home run on Saturday, thanks to baseball players with the Air Force Academy and the University of New Mexico.

Lio Ortega, who has been diagnosed with a form of brain cancer called medulloblastoma, threw a ceremonial first pitch and hit a home run ahead of the May 12 game between the Air Force Academy and the University of New Mexico Lobos, Fox 13 reported.

The game took place at the Air Force Academy, located just north of Colorado Springs.

Ortega’s father, Manuel, told ABC News the experience was especially memorable for his son because “he loves baseball.”

“The hardest thing for us is… how do we maximize his time to give him great experiences? This was one of those [experiences] because he loves baseball,” Manuel said. “He plays on a little league team, he loves the big kids, he loves the college kids. He wants to be one of them.”

Manuel, who once played baseball for New Mexico’s coach, Ray Birmingham, also told ABC News Ortega is a big Lobos fan.

“Everybody was crying, everybody was laughing. It was just overwhelming,” Manuel told the television network. “[Ortega] had a great time and as you could see, it was a hoot. When he gets to do things like this, it makes him happy because he’s with his family.”

Costa Rica coffee farmers brew up a carbon neutral future

Coffee makes up nearly 10 percent of Costa Rica’s total emissions

SANTA MARIA DE DOTA, Costa Rica, May 22 (Thomson Reuters Foundation) – Climbing the steep slope by his house, Fernando Solis Arguedas examined a leaf on one of his 50-year-old trees that produces arabica beans for the world’s first officially certified carbon neutral coffee.

Blaming an increasingly unpredictable climate for the first spots of roya fungus, he explained how sustainable techniques such as reducing chemical sprays and planting more shade trees meant higher prices for his coffee cooperative, Coopedota.

But forget organic. Carbon neutral produce has become the buzz term in the Central American nation of 5 million people as countries look to slash greenhouse gas emissions from agriculture while feeding growing populations.

“It’s the trend, but it means we can put our coffee in the international market and if the market is at $120, we might get $180 or $200,” said Solis, the third generation of his family to farm coffee.

“Although in reality a lot goes in costs, we think we come out better,” he said, watching the hawks drifting on currents of warm air over the town of Santa Maria de Dota, some 70 km (40 miles) south of the capital San Jose.

Costa Rica is now home to three zero emission coffee companies plus some carbon neutral banana, pineapple and cattle producers, putting the nation at the forefront of a movement that is slowly growing.

Coffee is not the only drink going carbon neutral. Companies in Sri Lanka, India and China are producing zero emission tea.

Coffee production has played a major role in Costa Rica’s history and it is famed for its high-quality arabica varieties. It is the world’s 14th largest coffee producer although it only accounts for about one percent of the world’s coffee.

But with a reputation for being environmentally friendly, Costa Rica set itself an ambitious – and increasingly improbable – target in 2007 to become carbon neutral by 2021, which means tackling the 37 percent of its emissions coming from farming.

Coffee makes up nearly 10 percent of its total emissions.

Globally agriculture, forestry and other land use accounts for about 24 percent of greenhouse gas emissions, according to the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency.

Persuading Costa Rica’s coffee farmers to switch fertilisers or mills to cut energy and water consumption or turn pulp into biogas, is helping lower costs alongside their environmental footprint, said people in the coffee industry.

Many are keen to adapt as the changing climate clouds the future for producers, prompting the government recently to lift a 30-year ban on planting robusta trees that are more heat and disease resistant than arabica.

But getting consumers on board remains a major challenge as producing zero emission coffee comes with costs.

Inside the vast Coopedota facility in Santa Maria de Dota – where most livelihoods are tied to coffee – millions of beans are sorted into sacks as the smell of roasting coffee pervades.

In the quality control room, a pair of tasters tested dozens of cups of coffee, comparing the fragrance and notes from the brews before spitting the remainder into steel beakers.

Although it is now ranked as the world’s first carbon neutral coffee company, the 900-member cooperative originally set out to cut costs and increase efficiency but along the way realised the environmental benefits of the new processes.

Now with water consumption down 80 percent and energy use 40 percent lower, it uses coffee husks instead of firewood to dry beans in cylinders, said environmental manager Adrian Cordero.

Coopedota tracks the emissions produced at each stage, from planting and fertilising the seeds, taking the coffee cherries from the farm to be depulped, the beans dried and in some cases roasted – buying carbon credits to offset part of its impact.

Cordero said the cooperative exports about half its coffee to the United States and the rest to newer markets in Asia where people are willing to pay the higher price.

“The social angle, the environmental angle, ensures our prices don’t go down,” he told the Thomson Reuters Foundation.

Cordero acknowledged that becoming carbon neutral was a slow process and required hefty initial investments for Coopedota.

The cooperative secures contracts several years in advance, which is security for farmers change the way or crops they farm.

However facing stiff competition from bigger coffee producers such as Brazil, low or zero emission coffee gives Costa Rica an edge, said Carlos Fonseca Castro, technical manager at the country’s ICAFE coffee institute.

Costa Rica was the first to adopt a Nationally Appropriate Mitigation Action (NAMA) plan to help coffee producers cut emissions. It now has a plan in place for cattle.

While only three coffee companies are certified carbon neutral, more are working to slash emissions, seeing knock-on cost benefits, said Fonseca at ICAFE on San Jose’s outskirts.

“It’s not necessarily expensive but it’s a change of mentality around (coffee) production and processing,” he said.

However he said difficulties in accurately measuring how carbon is stored and the need to buy credits was a disincentive.

Roberto Azofeifa, head of the Ministry of Agriculture’s agro-environmental production programme, said training and loans were helping farmers speed up to reduce environmental impact.

But raising consumer awareness and finding niche markets for carbon neutral products remained a hurdle.

“The carbon neutral target is inspiring people to do interesting things and even if they don’t have certification, they’re doing important work such as reducing emissions through waste reuse,” said Azofeifa, in his San Jose office.

“How to convince the consumer to be part of this trend is an enormous challenge.”

Sri Lanka’s Bogawantalawa Tea Estates, which became carbon neutral this year, is confident buyers will catch on to carbon neutral as they did with organic products.

“When we mention it’s carbon neutral, they are very much interested because they also are able to mention this on their packs,” said Shivashankary Rajarammohan, head of corporate social responsibility.

Eventually companies may have to show their carbon footprint as they do with nutritional values, said Peter Laderach, climate specialist at the International Center for Tropical Agriculture.

“It’s the same as food safety and traceability. Consumers get more informed and they just want to know they’re buying the right thing,” he said.

4-year-old ‘superhero’ on a mission to save homeless people

A 4-year-old boy in Birmingham, Alabama is saving the world one person at a time by handing out food and money to the local homeless community.

He’s pitched in to build a new homeless shelter, donating $5,000, Birmingham mayor Randall Woodfin posted on Facebook:

Austin Perine wears a red satin superhero cape that helps him work faster because “it blows in the wind,” the boy told CNN. He goes by the superhero name “President Austin” because he wants to become president of the United States.

When he visits with people on the streets, CNN reports, Austin Perine always wears his all-blue “work outfit,” complete with a T-shirt proudly displaying the hashtag #ShowLove in bold red letters.

Terance Perine, Austin’s father, told CBS News that his son was inspired to help the homeless after watching a show on Animal Planet where a panda left her cub alone.

When Austin asked what would happen to the baby panda, his dad told CBS News it appeared it would be “homeless for a while.” Austin asked him if people can be homeless too and wanted to meet a person living on the streets.

Terance Perine said that they went and bought food to hand out to some homeless people and it sparked something special in the boy. According to CNN, Austin Perine now spends his weekly allowance on food to give out to people on the street, to “show love” to the homeless.

Washington Redskins running back Samaje Perine is Austin’s cousin, according to the Washington Redskins website.

After Austin Perine’s story was featured on CBS News, Burger King stepped in to help, giving him $1,000 a month to spend on chicken sandwiches to hand out.

Church’s Chicken also stepped up to donate to Perine’s “#ShowLove” campaign.

Birmingham’s new homeless shelter is expected to open in late 2018.
