Social media users have also found inspiration because of the little guy:

Helene Mathee posted: “She not only taught him her language but she taught him her heart. Look at those two interactng. Amazing!”

Anuli Osinachi Ezenwa said: “I literally had tears in my eyes watching this. This is the type of Africa I want for my kids. Nobody is born being a racist. Racism is thought. Kudos to Portia and this little boy’s parents.”

Pholisa Lisa Faltein commented: “Truly racism is a sickness planted..he knows no skin colour but truly appreciates the love he gets and how he is learning. Big ups to the nanny and parents allowing cultural diversity… Big ups!! We are human before skin colour.”

Chanté Tyki Jansen posted: “I love love love this!!! Whish i was fortunate enough to have such an amazing african woman look after my son. The love she has for this boy is so clear. I love it!!!”

Margaret Macneill said: “This is so beautiful. If we (whites) could open our hearts in the same way I reckon a lot of problems could be worked out. A lovely video thanks for sharing.”
