Everyone should occasionally break the law

in some small and delightful way,
it’s good for the hygiene of the brain."

Charles Ramsey is a hero. He doesn’t wear a suit of high-tech armor. He doesn’t wear a cape. He’s just an ordinary guy,living an ordinary life.
Then, he saw a woman asking for help.
And he helped her.
He didn’t walk away.
He didn’t think of himself.
He just helped her.
It took less than a day for someone to make this heroic man into a joke.
As proud as Charles Ramsey makes me to be a human, those people make me ashamed.
No, he doesn’t speak perfectly.
No, he didn’t take the time to fix his hair before he went on camera.
He’s an African American man from an economically depressed neighborhood, city, and state.
And for that, he’s mocked and ridiculed.
It breaks my heart.
Now, in yet another heroic moment Mr. Ramsey’s response to Anderson Cooper’s inquiry about a possible reward Charles has proven he’s truly worthy of the hero mantle.
No, no, no. Bro, I’m a Christian, an American, and just like you. We bleed same blood, put our pants on the same way. It’s just that you got to put that – being a coward, and I don’t want to get in nobody’s business. You got to put that away for a minute…I tell you what you do, give [the reward] to them. Because if folks been following this case since last night, you been following me since last night, you know I got a job anyway. Just went picked it up, paycheck. What that address say? […] 2203 Seymour. Where are them girls living? Right next door to this paycheck. So yes, take that reward and give it to—that little girl[.]
Thank you Charles Ramsey.

Thank you.

Over his 32-year career as a Deputy U.S. Marshal, Bass Reeves arrested 3,000 felons, killed 14 men, and was never shot himself. His reputation for persistence, his total fearlessness, his skills with a gun, and his ability to outsmart outlaws struck terror into lawbreakers in what we now call Oklahoma. Although other colorful characters made their way into our pop culture, Bass was the real badass of the Old West.The story of Bass Reeves is sometimes cited as the inspiration for The Lone Ranger. It also may have been an inspiration for the film Django Unchained. The 2010 straight-to-video movie Bass Reeves is a fictionalized account of the lawman’s life. In 2011, the bridge that connects Muskogee and Fort Gibson in Oklahoma was named the Bass Reeves Memorial Bridge.
Once asked why he spent so much effort enforcing the “white man’s laws,” Bass reportedly replied, “Maybe the law ain’t perfect, but it’s the only one we got, and without it we got nuthin’.”

“I feel really lucky, although I hate that word — ‘lucky.’  It cheapens a lot of hard work.  Living in Brooklyn in an apartment without any heat and paying for dinner at the bodega with dimes — I don’t think I felt myself lucky back then. Doing plays for 50 bucks and trying to be true to myself as an” — here he put on a faux snooty voice — “artist and turning down commercials where they wanted a leprechaun. Saying I was lucky negates the hard work I put in and spits on that guy who’s freezing his ass off back in Brooklyn.”

…I mean, he SAYS THAT IN THE MOVIE.

He was part of a secret agent unit called The Ministry of Ungentlemanly Warfare. When told by Peter Jackson to imagine how a man being stabbed in the back sounds like, he told him he didn’t have to imagine it. He was knighted on October 31, 2009 (that’s right, HALLOWEEN.) and has the same birthday as Vincent Price. He’s fluent in English, Italian, French, German, and Spanish; “moderately proficient” in Swedish, Russian, and Greek, and “conversational” in Madarin Chinese. He’s a direct descendant of Charlemagne. 
Ladies and gentlemen, BOW DOWN TO SIR. CHRISTOPHER. LEE.
