You've heard about the NYC "subway hero," right? The black man, a Navy veteran, who saw a 20-year-old white guy* having a seizure, then falling onto the tracks with a train coming. The hero jumps down with his two young daughters standing nearby, rolls the man underneath the platform, saving his life.
Kyle's question: is this man a hero or should we call him what we would have called him if he'd died, stupid?
*I mention race because when I saw this story I was amazed by it. Sue me. I'm a cynic.
