Cracker White is an aspiring rapper who recently hitchhiked from Tampa to LA and back to get his name out there, and to meet people along the way. He is a very charismatic individual with so many stories to tell.
Shy With a Story Yet to Tell
This was the individual we spoke to behind a set of garbage cans. He can be found pushing a shopping cart through Ybor. He was so very appreciative of the food and drink we provided, but said he wasn't ready yet to share his story. He did let us share his face, and was looking forward to us coming back again.
Supporting His Fellow Man
This individual was an incredibly caring person, and really was the person who made us realize our impact. He had heard we were giving out food and sought us out, not only to support himself, but also to support a shy individual who couldn't bring himself to ask us for food. Later on, the individual he helped actually did come up to us, and asked if he could have another one of those yummy burgers.
This was our longest encounter. He came up to us and asked if we had the burgers and water he heard about. We gave him food and invited him to sit with us. He was astounded that we would invite him to sit down. We told him what we aimed to do, and he said "wait, you want to help the homeless? That's incredible. Why would you want to do that? Nobody wants to help us." We have video that will be coming soon of our sit-down with him.
