PERTH, Australia – A couple is going viral after fighting hate with love in Australia.
Jarred Wall and his fiancee were enjoying tea at a Perth cafe when he overheard two older women talking about Aboriginal people.
“I could have unleashed a tirade of abuse, but that wouldn’t have helped,” Wall wrote in a now-viral Facebook post that has been shared more than 2,500 times.
Instead, Wall treated the women to a pot of tea, and a note.
“Enjoy the tea!” Wall wrote on the bill. “Compliments of the 2 aboriginals sitting next to you on table 26.”
Wall hopes the moment humbles the women.
“Maybe these ladies will be a little wiser and thing before they speak. Hopefully there won’t be a next time!” Wall wrote, including the hastags #BlackLivesMatter and #EnglishBreakfastTea.
