The optimism in me believes that they put ex con to show that you shouldn't judge someone by their past. But the realistic in me knows they put ex con because he is black
It can be both
Do you read the article if it says "Man takes shirt off his back to save car crash victim"? Maybe, maybe not. By attaching "ex-con" you are going to open the article to see what this guy was convicted of to see if this courageous act somehow absolves this man's past, (you probably do this subconsciously). Not saying it's right, just how our brains work.
Yeah, I think Ex-Con is a better story. Could be showing that he's a changed man.
It’s sarcasm bc even tho he did the right thing the public still only saw him as an ex con.
Idk man I really just don’t know
I'm surprised they didn't use his mugshot.
Don't understand the title
