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.

I love movies. Who doesn't?

Film has been leaving an impression on our lives for over a century.

Some of the things we remember most are the images. The shots that seem otherworldly.

How does the director and the DP figure it all out? How do they see the colors?

I've seen some shots that have left me breathless.

It's all genius.

How high was God or whoever when they designed the human body? Clearly they needed a crash course in anatomy.

The body is amazing and resilient, but it can also be a hot mess.

Why are so many areas susceptible to pain? Like, one bad fall on a knee and you could be hobbled for life.

They should be more bulletproof. And the eyes, why so fragile when a wild eyelash gets caught in a blink?

So many questions. If the body was intended to last ten decades or so, it should be a bit more bionic.

Redditor MrBowls wanted to get into details about anatomy and it's issues, they asked:

"What’s the worst designed part of the human body?"
