Mosie Morancy becomes one of the African-American heroes for social networks and a suspect for NYPD.
Is this country really ready to give up the idea that all Black people are criminals by default and believe into the existence of African-American heroes? It’s highly doubtful. Racist stereotypes are rooted too deep in the minds of Americans and most of them, especially police officers, do not tend to spend a mere second trying to look at some situations from a different angle. The story of a New York entertainer who happened to be one of modern African-American heroes, though he didn’t get as much fame as Luke Cage or Black Panther, is just one more example of the above mentioned. Further, you will find the details of what happened to Moise Morancy taken from the most reliable sources.
Moise Morancy saw a man on a bus touching a 15-year-old girl and decided to step in, but he ended up getting arrested when police arrived before a black sergeant released him.
According to Morancy, who posted the entire story on Facebook, he was sitting on the bus when he started to make inappropriate moves on the young girl sitting next to him: “I’m sitting at the back of the bus when this drunk guy gets on, saying all types of sexual shenanigan to this little girl sitting next to me. At first he started caressing her hand and I saw how uncomfortable it made her…so she let go and put her hands in her pocket. He then proceeded to forcibly do it again. In the process of doing so, he hit my knee and I told him ‘Yo, bro. Don’t touch me.’”

But that just seemed to set the man off, as he shouted, “I can do whatever I want you black piece of s***!”
Not wanting to cause a scene, Morancy backed off, but when the man started to touch the young girl’s leg, he knew he had to step in. “Yo, my ni**a! Don’t f******* touch her again! You heard? Cuz if you do, We gon’ problems!” he told the man.
“I’m a real ni**a, so try me,” the man replied, reaching for his pocket and lunging. See more

Morancy said he went into self-defense mode, giving the drunken man a few punches to his face, nose, knees and neck. He said he tried to get others passengers on the bus to restrain the man until the cops showed up, no one came forward to help him.
The police eventually came to arrest the perverted passenger — and Morancy.
“I was so confused and felt criminalized,” he said. “Why is this happening to me? I was told that I no matter what the circumstances were, I still assaulted him. They put me in the back of the car as I tried to explain myself. He sexually harassed this child!”
The New York man said it wasn’t until a Black officer named Odeh Hammoudeh (who turned out to be the sergeant) got involved and ordered his release from the handcuffs.
“To see a Black man in a position of power right the wrongs, gave me a little bit of hope for the N.Y.P.D,” Morancy wrote. “As I always say not all cops are bad. The good ones just need to step up.”
The New York man’s post has since received over 4.8 million likes and 5,000 shares. Many have come forward to commend Morancy for his heroic actions. See more
We adore Mr. Morancy’s courageous deeds though we are sad to acknowledge that not too many white citizens are eager to appreciate the actions of the people like him especially when it comes to culprits who are white too.
All is well that ends well, of course, and we are still glad that the African-American heroes of the present have the chance to get help from rare Black officers who choose to trust the words of their brothers over common bias.
