Incredible moment between skinhead ‘Nazi’ and a black man no one saw coming

“Darkness cannot drive out darkness; only light can do that. Hate cannot drive out hate; only love can do that.” – Dr. Martin Luther King Jr.

A black man protesting outside of a speech given by white supremacist Richard Spencer showed the way to battle ignorance on Thursday when he hugged a neo-Nazi skinhead dressed in swastikas.

The man approached the Nazi, Randy Furniss, of Idaho, after Furniss had been punched and heckled by angry protesters.

The black man approached the skinhead with an entierly different approach.

“Give me a f***ing hug,” he shouted at Furniss. “Why you don’t like me, bro? Huh? What is it? What is it?”

Initially Furniss seemed startled, but then allowed the man to hug him.

Some in the angry crowd momentarily cheered the moment of peace. A slice of sanity in the midst of madness. We could all use more of that.

Unfortunately, it didn’t last. Shortly after the hug another protester at the University of Florida event, punched Furniss again.

Before the attacks Furniss told News4Jax that he was a white nationalist and explained why he was at Spencer’s speech.

“They want what we have,” he said. “They’re being raised up and it’s getting to the point where they want to push us down. That’s not right.”
