*A moment of generosity and kindness that took place at a high school in Greenwood, South Carolina was thankfully captured on video and has since drawn more than a million views worldwide in less than 24 hours.
In the clip, an African American student named Tae Moore is shown giving a pair of Jordans to a white classmate at Greenwood High School that he saw being bullied for the way he dressed.
“I bought you some Js, bruh,” Moore repeatedly tells the stunned student as several classmates watch and film with their cell phones.
After realizing it wasn’t a joke, he replies: “I don’t know what to say, man. You want me to pay you or something?”
“Nah! Bruh! Put ‘em on, bruh!” says Moore, opening the box.
An onlooker is heard saying, “I could cry right now. That is so sweet.”
In Moore’s Facebook post of the video, he explains that the kid is an aspiring rapper known at school as Eazy E, who is “just trying to chase his dream, but kids at school like to bully him and pick on him and talk about him, the way he dress and look, so I went and bought him some Jordan’s. He was shocked.”
Eazy E appears to have created an Instagram account two days ago (under the name “Eazy-T”) just so he could publicly thank Moore for his generosity:
This guy’s name is Tay, he goes to greenwood high school. Yesterday when I walked into the gym to get ready for lunch Tay asked me what size shoe I wear and I said “9, why”, and he said “alright tomorrow I want you to show up at this exact spot, ok”, and I said “alright man”. Today when I went into the gym there was a small crowd of students around Tay who had a footlocker bag, when he saw me come in he pulled out a Jordan shoe box and he opened it and it had retro 1 jordans, and then he handed them to me saying “here you go man these are yours”, at first I didn’t know what he was talking about, but then he told his friends to put my book bag somewhere, while he laced my shoes, when they were on I asked him “I don’t understand why are you giving me these”, when he said “I heard people have been bullying you, so I wanted to get you these to make you feel better”, and when he said that I hugged him and I almost cried, and I cannot thank him enough, and then he said “and if anybody bullying you, you let me know alright”, and I said “thank you so much”. #thereareawesomepeopleintheworld
