Just days after basketball legendÂ Shaquille Oâ€™Neal publicly mocked him on Instagram, Jahmel Binion says â€˜Iâ€™m more positive than I could ever be.â€™
Binion, a 23-year-old from Michigan, has a rare genetic condition that cause symptoms such as â€œreduced ability to sweat, missing teeth and fine sparse hair.â€
Some people would of lashed out against Oâ€™Neal, but Binion responded with an anti-bullying Facebook page,Â â€œHUG DONâ€™T JUDGE.â€
â€œPlease be respectful, be positive and share this with the world,â€ he writes on the page. â€œTime to make a difference.â€
Oâ€™Neal deleted the photograph from Instagram and apologized for his ignorance on Twitter by saying that he is #alwayslearning.
God teaches us to love one another as we love ourselves. Hopefully, Oâ€™Nealâ€™s experience will be a reminder to others to educate themselves and think of Godâ€™s word before making a snap judgment about someoneâ€™s appearance.
In the mean time, Binion is fighting hate with kindness. You can join hisÂ HUGS DONâ€™T JUDGE Facebook group here.
