101 Year Old Minneapolis Man Shovels Neighbors' Walk

Sometime they rise above the cultcha - right Os?

http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2016/0...s-going-viral/

MINNEAPOLIS (WCCO) — A Twin Cities great-grandfather is getting a lot of attention for a video showing him shoveling his neighbor’s sidewalk.

“I’ve always been active, always doing something,” St. Paul resident Richard Mann said.

The 101-year-old has learned a thing or two about work ethic over his long life. After his father died when he was four, he took care of work around the house to help his single mom. Snow shoveling was one of his duties.

“I was the only boy, and it was an automatic thing for me to more or less do ‘a man’s job,'” Mann said.

The job never got him much attention until now, nearly a century later. A video showing Mann shoveling his neighbor’s snow has gone viral. His neighbor is overheard in the video summing the situation up perfectly.

“This is an inspiration to a lot of people to get up, get out and get something,” Mann’s neighbor said.

This fine gentleman comes from a different day and a different CULTCHA.

He hasn't 'risen above' anything.

He has always had a Superior CULTCHA.

Quite obviously not the current Black CULTCHA.





If the Black Community would substitute this decent gentleman's CULTCHA for their current low life Ghetto Trash Criminal Piece of Sh*t Black CULTCHA that the majority of blacks either personify and/or support, their so-called 'problems' (all self-created) would vanish in the blink of an eye.


Just - that - simple.

Re: 101 Year Old Minneapolis Man Shovels Neighbors' Walk

It is sad that a good man doing his neighbor a favor is now a small subculture. And the subculture of violence just keeps getting bigger.

Most people are just too busy, (or just don't give a shit about others) to do something like he did. I'm not speaking of races, I'm talking about humans in any community, in general.

Good story Bryan, it is good to see this type of news.

He doesn't look like he's 101 but more in his seventies/early 80's.

To me, he...is a role model.

I hear ya. Good to hear it's not all skin color to you.

But when you see a good guy no matter the race you gotta call a spade a spade.

Re: 101 Year Old Minneapolis Man Shovels Neighbors' Walk

that man came from a time when people had ideals and hope after the industrial revolution and the great war, we come from a generation and time after post modernism when people cant afford to buy houses or raise children and were full of despair and emptiness and our young people face immigration or suicide........

I have always been absolutely crystal clear that it is all about CULTCHA.

Only - dishonest - people have pretended to 'misunderstand' that.



And you must also not shy away from pointing out bad guys when they are blax.



But again, this fine man should serve as an example for everyone and I would love to live in a neighborhood filled with people just like him.
