Cleveland resident Charles Ramsey is being hailed as a hero after his dramatic recounting of the rescue of two women in a kidnapping case that goes back 10 years, CNN reports. Videos of his interviews have gone viral because of his colorful storytelling ability and his accidental and not-so-subtle commentary about the state of race relations in America.

"I'm eating my McDonald's, I come outside, and I see this girl going nuts, trying to get out of the house," he told CNN affiliate WEWS. He later added, "I knew something was wrong when a little pretty white girl ran into a black man's arms. Something is wrong here. Dead giveaway!"
