Every woman knows that walking home alone at night creates a potentially dangerous situation. Unfortunately, that’s the kind of world we live in. It’s sad but true. That’s why women sometimes have to take drastic measures to make sure they’re safe.

While this is true everywhere, walking around a big city at night can be especially dangerous. Women will often carry pepper spray or whistles with them as a way of defending themselves. But all too often, even that’s not enough.

One woman experienced a scary situation

A woman in New York City was trying to get home to her son late at night. She could tell three men were following her. Instinctively, she knew she needed to do something if she was going to keep herself safe.

She approached a man to ask for help

The woman approached a black man near a train station. Although she had no idea who he was and he didn’t know her, she walked right up to him and gave him a big hug. Whispering in his ear, she asked him to pretend as though he knew her. Quickly, she explained three men were following her.

The man she happened to approach goes by the Twitter handle @WonderKing82, and calls himself the “Black Professor”.

A ridiculously kind offer
