Fucking A, Mr. Ramsey. You rock.

Yeah man, I had read about the rescue of Amanda Berry, Gina DeJesus and Michelle Knight in Cleveland but hadn't watched any of the videos with the Gentleman that did the right thing and got involved, helping to free them after 10 years in captivity.
I didn't watch it that is until Murray sent me the link with this quote under it:
“you know there’s a problem when a pretty little white girl ran into the arms of a black man”

I'm happy to hear that these young women have been rescued after what had to have been a horrific experience.

There's a part of me though that would like to see how the authorities would react if these Castro boys declared that they are muslims and that the women are their wives and must be returned at once.

After pondering on this awhile, first let me say this, the guy did the right thing, he should be commended for helping rescue those poor women. But the black man comment, while it did make me giggle, kind of got me thinking, is that what most black people think? It seems like he was the one who had the issue being black? Or do all blacks just see white people and automatically assume they are racist? Maybe I am making something from nothing, but did that bother anyone else? It seems Obama has done a great job in dividing us racially.

I think you're overthinking this crankyjohn. He assisted. Regardless of what he may have thought about Whites, he assisted. And BTW, they were Latinas. (White Hispanics according to the MFM)

Great job, Mr. Ramsey! And thanks for being honest.

Little will be made of this, but rest assured if the roles had been reversed and the victim was black and Mr. Ramsey was white and had said “you know there’s a problem when a pretty little black girl ran into the arms of a white man”, shit would hit the fan. He'd be called a racist for sure and it would get major play time on the alphabet news networks.

@Father Confessor, perhaps you are correct. Not trying to piss on what should be a horrible story with a happy ending. but he called the girl white, not me.

His "big testicles" comment had me laughing more than the "white girl" comment. No matter what his racial views may or may not be, I think the dude was just a little nervous being on camera and tried to lighten up the mood a little by crackin' a joke.

Most jokes that are funny have a lot of truth to them, no exception to the rule here...

This comes from years of on-the-scene reporting and fighting crowds, but the one thing that stood out to me was when he bent down and untangled the mic cord for the reporter at 1:15. And didn't miss a lick. :-)

You are looking at the REAL America. We need a whole bunch more Charles Ramseys, and fast.

He understands the concept of "white girl bleed a lot" which evidently a lot of people do not.

Amen to all you commenters. This is the greatest interview on this particular heinous matter, and maybe ever. The guy was funny, no profanity, just seemed like a straight up dude. Although he did get a little jumpy when that siren squealed.....Seriously though I hope some local businessman offers him a much better job because of the publicity he has received and helps him to improve his life.
