An Activist Writer Completely Disarms a Foul Troll Over Twitter in a Kind Display on MLK Day

A writer named Ijeoma Oluo has shared an interesting Twitter conversation she had with a 14-year-old, racist troll on Martin Luther King Jr. Day, and the result is truly inspiring.

"You guys I'm a mom," she wrote on Facebook. "You think I'm going to let some 14 year old outlast me? I got love for days."

Warning: there are a lot of racial slurs and other awful stuff in here, but make sure to read all the way through to the end.

Beyoncé was featured on the long-running blog project Humans of New York, where she discussed the blessing (everyone remembers your name!) and curse (no one will stop singing "Single Ladies"!) of having a famous moniker. And just like that, the rest of the internet joined in to share their woes. Some of these names almost seem too good to be true. 

Hopefully now she knows that she isn't alone!

Caroline Macrory started a trend by leaving gifts on the doorstep of someone who needed them and running away. She called this the Doorstep Challenge and this act of kindness has really caught on. 

Even a few local businesses have joined in.

Macrory's goal is bringing people together to make life a little easier. She told Mashable, "Basically the concept of the ‘doorstep challenge’ is to reach out to those in our community who might be struggling at this time of year for one reason or another and spread a little Christmas cheer."
