ABC's 20/20 Reports "In Crisis Situations, Black Men Are Eight Times More Likely To Make Heroic Acts Than White Men"

"Hispanic Men are two times more likely to make heroic acts than white men." "City dwellers are more likely to make heroic acts than rural citizens." On Friday's 20/20, which detailed the Aurora movie theater mass shooting, they profiled two African American men who chose to save others in danger. One of the young black men helped escort a mother and her two children to safety as he got shot in the leg. Another young black man helped shield two people, one who was shot in the head, behind a door as the shooter approached them. The show interviewed a white sociologist those profiles. He reported on his study which explored which types of people were more inclined to save others in crisis situations. Of course, this doesn't negate the heroism shown by white men. These are compelling statistics that run counter to much of what the media tends to tell us about Black and Hispanic men.
