9-year-old Brian Thomas-Riley saw an elderly woman struggling to get through a heavy glass door in an apartment building.

Without hesitation, the mindful child assisted her but was promptly dismissed by the woman who also hurled a racial epithet.


The young Black boy from Washington, Pennsylvania, told WXPI news reporter Marlisa Goldsmith, that the White woman called him the N-word and slammed the door in his face after his chivalrous endeavor.

And now that woman is facing eviction.

Thomas-Riley said he was trying to help the woman.

"But Susie slammed the door and almost hit my face."

He also claimed she called him the N-word.

"I was not happy about that."


The boy's father, Reverend GL Riley, was with his son during the incident. It was also captured on surveillance cameras.

The White woman also called Reverend Riley the N-word after insulting his son.

The father stated:

"He pushed the door a third of the way open and you heard, 'Get away you little [N-word] boy'."
"This was just cold and blatant. It's injustice. Period. And people need to be accountable for their action."

Riley posted the footage on his Facebook page of the moment his son tried to help the woman. Others soon shared it on Twitter and Instagram.



To demonstrate there are consequences for physical and verbal abuse, Riley contacted the City of Washington Police Department and filed a complaint.



Soon, people started praising "Beeps," which is a nickname Riley uses for his son.

The building manager told reporters the contemptible tenant, Susie, had a "history of verbal abuse."

This latest incident was the last straw that prompted owners to finally take action to evict her from the building.

It's a lot. Like a lot a lot. History class lied so hard.

Businesses have to turn a profit to be able to stay operational. We get it. A consumer is paying more than it costs to make the product to purchase the product. The upside of accepting this fact should be we're being provided a service and experience we couldn't possibly get on our own. However, there are those products that are overcharged, especially compared to the development costs, that are charged a high price for what feels like no reason outside of making a ridiculous amount of money.
