Standing Tall

The world needs more Brad Knudsons, and fewer Deron Puros.

From Global Grind:
A Minnesota father took a stand against both bullying and racism when he took to YouTube to expose the students taunting his adopted African-American daughter.

In the heartbreaking video above, Brad Knudson explains that his daughter’s friend came to the family to inform them that twins at her Prior Lake school were sending Dierdra racist Snapchat videos. Knudson and his wife recorded the Snapchats from their phone — in the shot videos, the twins can be heard calling Dierdra a n****r and a fat bitch.

Knudson, who adopted Dierdra 11 years ago, says the family has “dealt with a little bit of racism, you know, stares, things like that when she calls us Mom or Dad,” but blew it off because “it was directed toward us.” But the videos were too much for the family — Knudson, who said he loves Dierdra more than his own life, decided to take a stand against racism and bullying because a close friend of theirs lost their 13-year-old son to bullying not long ago.

This guy Puro is pure scum, and yet another sterling example of why you should be required by law to get a license before being allowed to be a parent. Brad Knudson, though? He's the gold standard, and would never have to renew his license. He's good for life.
