A young black kid interrupted Fodder’s lunch at the deli several months ago:

“Excuse me, sir,” he would ask. “My family is struggling, I was wondering if you might be able to give me some money for food?”

Knowing that this was almost certainly a scam, Fodder still couldn’t help but feel empathy.

“I know it’s tough out there,” Fodder said, while handing the kid $40. “Hopefully this will help.”

“Thank you so much. God bless you!” he said, running off.

Fodder went back to eating lunch. If he had just helped the kid - then great! If the kid scammed him… well, then Fodder just bought a poor kid a new video game. Either way, Fodder felt good about his actions.

Upon leaving, a man in a #MAGA hat would stop Fodder:

“So… who was that?” he asked.

“Just some kid. Said his family needed money.”

“Oh, okay. He might have ripped you off.”

“Maybe. Maybe not. I try to see the best in people.”

“I see. Just doing the right thing. Respect.”

“Thanks,” Fodder replied, walking away.
