#Roommates, you never know when you’re going to need someone. MMA fighter Derrick spent time out in Houston helping Hurricane Harvey victims get to safety after heaving flooding, and surprisingly, one of his was a man trying desperately to save his Confederate flag!

“I picked up one guy and his family, his wife – he just kept apologizing to me, because all he really had was his clothes, and he wanted to take his Confederate flag,” Lewis said. “He wanted to take that with him, and he just apologized and said, ‘Man, I’ll sit in the back of your truck, man. I don’t want to have my flag inside of your truck like this.’ I said, ‘Man, I’m not worried about that.’

Y’all already know what the Confederate Flag represents, but Lewis didn’t let that get in the way of rescuing this man and his family.

“He’s saying, ‘You never know if you ever need someone, so…’ – I already knew where he was going with it. I just said, ‘Don’t even worry about it. It’s OK. I don’t care about that.’ His wife kept hitting him and saying, ‘You should have just left it.’”
