..yes, and there is one area (which you mention) in which he feels he can help so he is.

He can't be a positive role model to black kids because he's not black*. He can't be a role model to disabled kids because he's not disabled*. He's doing what he can to help in one specific usecase. His efforts should be appreciated by everybody.

*I acknowledge you shouldn't be excluded from being a role model if you don't share the same skin colour or able-bodiness. But if you share those attributes I presume it creates a closer connection.

How did they do this? I have a toddler and want to prepare him for this kind of stuff. Any insight would be appreciated. When I was a kid, I was never bullied, nor a bully. I saw it going on, but didn't do anything to stop it.
