Another St. Louis milestone. A guy in the parking lot hit my car w/ his door, then told me to worry about "The Wall." He then rushed away.— Jose de Jesus Ortiz (@OrtizKicks) May 21, 2017
He didn't know where to hide when he realized my kid was playing on the field where his kid was. #coward who raises these racists here?— Jose de Jesus Ortiz (@OrtizKicks) May 21, 2017
Not even close. Houston is pretty diverse. St. Louis sadly is not. The parents who saw the interaction were stunned. https://t.co/xGGgjwnX8X— Jose de Jesus Ortiz (@OrtizKicks) May 21, 2017
He was with his child, which is why I merely offered to discuss it privately in the woods behind the parking lot. He passed. https://t.co/Ufry7oV2wO— Jose de Jesus Ortiz (@OrtizKicks) May 21, 2017
@OrtizKicks Yeah, a real "St. Louis milestone!" Because no other cities have mean people in them.— Ryan Baris (@Ryan_Baris) May 21, 2017
@OrtizKicks Ah determined to tear this city down before you leave, eh?— Adam (@Ramdom_Hoss) May 21, 2017
