It does sound unbelievable, I would have to agree. My liedar went off as well. I think the story is fake. I’d say there’s a 29% chance that this is a true story. Finally, we agree on something!
And yet, truth is stranger than fiction. It could be one of those strange, strange true stories. Because why make up a story about a sympathetic racist? This guy, old, confused and heartbroken literally doesn’t inspire fear, or anger but sadness and sorrow. Why would someone make up such a story? It doesn’t neatly serve any agenda.
