Andrella "Lashae" Jackson, a single mom of five, was pulled over by the Milwaukee Police earlier this month for having the wrong registration on her car. But when Officer Zimmerman approached the vehicle, he noticed two small kids in the backseat without car seats. Instead of giving her a ticket, he took it upon himself to help Jackson out during a difficult time.

"I see three kids in the backseat and two are very young. I didn't observe any child restraints or even seat belts and I asked why the kids aren't in car seats. She said she can't afford them at this time," Zimmerman told WTMJ-TV.



Jackson said with bills coming up and winter approaching, she would have to buy coats and boots for her children, so she didn't have the extra money to get new car seats.

"It was hard for me," Jackson told the news station.

It can take time to feel comfortable in a new home, especially if you think there are scary monsters lurking about, which is why six-year-old Hayden Williams had trouble sleeping in his new room.

Hayden used to share a room with his 15-year-old sister, but when the Eldridge, Iowa family moved, each kid got their very own. While his sister was excited for the change, Hayden was having a hard time adjusting to the new arrangement.

"My little man has been having severe anxiety since we moved into the new house…I've tried everything under the sun to get him to sleep in his own room. Nothing is helping," his mom, Amanda Williams, wrote on Facebook.

Bottom line: Leave black people alone, please and thanks.

When an Oakland community was hit with a low blow, they turned the music right on up.

Just two weeks after a white woman called the cops on a black family attempting to have a barbecue on April 29, 2018, at Lake Merritt Park in Oakland, California, local residents responded by throwing an enormous cookout at the site, complete with music, food, dancing, and pure, unadulterated black joy.
