Three young rappers help get an 89-year-old woman into the car by giving a lesson in generosity
Over the decades, researchers and social scientists have shown that we all classify people based on their reliability, personal status, intelligence, success and dominance. But just because humans tend to judge others quickly doesn't mean that we should always do so, or in every context. What happened in Williston in Florida suggests that we should not judge by appearances and let ourselves be convinced for once by the surprising generosity that human beings are capable of.

In Williston, police officer Kenesha Carnegie of the Levy County office was driving near a gas station when she noticed a truly surprising and unexpected scene: three young people had gathered around an elderly couple, the 100-year-old David Griest and 89-year-old Rose Griest, who had stopped at the gas station to use the bathroom as they returned home from an appointment for the elderly woman.
The woman was struggling to get into the car, and young local rappers Joc Koe Stoe, Marty and Freddy G decided to help her. Rose was so fatigued that she was about to fall as she tried to walk and get in the car, but the three eager boys supported her, preventing her from falling dangerously to the ground.
Seeing the scene of generosity, Kenesha asked the boys if she could film the surprising scene, and the video of the "rescue" was later posted on Facebook by the local police officer, receiving applause from the entire Williston community. Kenesha's video has been viewed over 6 million times by web users.
As we said, you should never judge by appearances; young rappers may at first glance seem indifferent to certain needs of the community, but instead the images filmed by Kenesha show us exactly the opposite. Very good, guys!
