Saving one dog is more important than a million black people - Firefighter says
A volunteer racist firefighter for Franklin Township, Ohio, Tyler Roysdon, has been suspended over a strong comment he made against black people on Facebook.
He wrote that if he had to choose between saving a dog or a black man from a burning building, he would opt for the dog, because “one dog is more important than a million n****rs.”
