Police officer arresting a young man at night

One Georgia man showed a lot of restraint after being called the N-Word by an angry white man in a road rage incident.

According to The Grio, Terrence Stover, a history teacher, and football coach told police that Eric DeKeyzer used racist comments towards him while at a stop light.

“He rolls his window down and he starts saying a lot of racial slurs and shooting me birds, middle finger and stuff like that,” explained Stover to Channel 2 News.

Stover avoided getting into a confrontation with DeKeyzer because he is a teacher and a football coach at South Gwinnett High School.

He reportedly drove into a parking lot at a shopping center where DeKeyzer used the n-word and other words of profanity towards him. Instead of getting into it with him, Stover pulled his cell phone out to record the incident.

“You called me a n***** for no reason,” said Stover in the video. DeKeyzer replies, “Yeah because I knew it would get a f***ing rise out of you because you’re acting like one.”

The video provided enough evidence for police to arrest DeKeyzer and charge him with road rage.

“It’s shocking that it was so blatant. It’s wrong and it’s hurtful,” explained Stover. He says he handled the situation the same way he’s taught his students would.

“I teach my kids not to fight unless you’re defending yourself,” said Stover. “I just pray people think before they do.”

    it’s the way white people show their ignorance, because anytime God’s creations don’t come up to your standards, you are fuel for the fire. Do you think his day will not come?

    Well I,ll commend the brother,but let me say this.Black America you better be ready to defend you and ur family not because the law says so but because its a god given right,with that being said you need to armed yourselves and get license to carry and please don,t be fearful,in this climate of 45 all white people are deputize an they can kill you or your children.So just be prepare to practice ur 2nd amendments rights.

  3. I am so thankful that Mr. Stover showed restraints because some of these hateful people just want to see more of our black families destroyed by locking up our black men and calling them animals. We are a great people and we don’t have to stoop to some white people levels of stupidity and ignorance.

    Why should this black man lose his temper and end up dead or in prison over a road rage incident. That white man could have pulled a gun, blown his head off and probably would have gotten away with it. All the white man had to say is “I felt threatened and feared for my life.” Calling a black person a ni**ger will always be the white man’s trump card, it empowers him. I applaud the brother for taking the high road it wasn’t’ worth it.

  5. How is it that they never show restraint, but we always have to? Black folks have been showing restraint since the first ship. Sad. Langston Hughes — ‘Negroes sweet and docile, meek, humble, and kind: Beware the day they change

    • We always have to show restraint? For real? I’ll bet my forty acres and a mule that you can’t remember the last time you saw a black person show restraint in any situation. From shootin’ up a chicken shack because there was no more barbeque sauce to tossing a Big Mac over the counter because the burger wasn’t made right. “Beware the day they change”? That ship done sailed. In this case, Mr. Stover can be described as intelligent, self controlled, forward thinking and totally in control of his emotions. As a result, he was able to go home to his family that day instead of being locked up in a cage like an animal, because he didn’t want to be perceived as sweet, docile, meek, humble and kind. Although for the life of me I can’t understand when being sweet, kind and humble became character flaws. ROTHF, LMBAO @black folks have been showing restraint since the first ship.

        ********
        I’m sure “Being Black” can remember a time when black men have shown restraint when it comes to racist situations. We, all can except you. There was just a situation at Starbucks in Philly. So, I guess if you did have 40 acres and a mule, it would now belong to “Being Black”.
        ********
        If you don’t understand where Langston Hughes was saying or better yet, even know what Langston Huges was about, then you’ve been lost for a long time. Research dear, research. So you just keep on LYBAO at black folk, b/c we’re indeed laughing our black @sses off at you.

      • Well yeah, the Starbucks in Philly. I guess you do remember. Glad you didn’t take me up on my bet. Oh, I’ve seen us blacks show restraint. I just don’t remember the last time I did. Sorry, but seeing a big greasy female chucking a hamburger at a server because her sammich didn’t look right is funny as hell and I’ll LMBAO every time I see it. I’ll laugh at us, you can laugh at me and a fun time will be had by all. Except for Langston, of course. #remain a tight ass, remain salty.
