A homeless man living in the United Kingdom who yelled out a racial slur at another manracist homeless white guy couldn’t have expected the response he received from the intended target of the slur.

Aminur Chowdhury, 30, was leaving a bar when he heard a homeless man named Ben Gallon insult him. Chowdhury says he just couldn’t let it go.

“Initially I turned the other cheek, but then I was challenging Ben about what he had said to me. I stopped and had a chat with him for about 15 minutes,” said Chowdhury.

Chowdhury says he realized Gallon was a good guy at heart, so he came back the next day to do something good for him.

“I went back to see him the following day to tell him he had been offered a job,” said Chowdhury. “I care for him. It’s a positive story. I could tell when I stopped to talk to Ben that he was a passionate guy. I realize I can’t put the world to rights but I can try to educate people. Ben’s life is changing and changing for the better and long may it continue. Ben is a delight to be with. He’s not a bad guy.”

Gallon says he was floored by Chowdhury’s kind heart and regrets his racist remarks.

“I’ve learned my lesson,” said Gallon. “What I said was completely out of character for me. I’m not a racist. There was no justification for me using those words. Kudos to him for forgiving me. I regret it. A positive thing has happened out of this situation. I was worse for drink when I made those comments. I didn’t think anything of it when he said he could get me a job, but he drove me to the interview and I got it. Things are starting to look up for me. I’ve started the job and it’s fantastic.”

Both men hope this will serve as a teachable moment for others.

I bet the Indian guy would never offer a position to a black guy…even if the black guy said nothing but hello, its a shame how other race of people love them some white folk, no matter how evil. I can not wait for GOD to rescue us from this mess.
