In 2016, Jamal Hinton got a text from an unknown number: "Thanksgiving dinner is at my house on Nov. 24 at 3:00." Confused, he asked who the texter was.
"Your grandma," the mystery messenger replied. Hinton, then a teen, asked for a picture and upon seeing a White woman who was not his grandma, he texted a photo of himself back. "You not my grandma," wrote Hinton, who is Black. "Can I still get a plate though?"
In what has become known as one of the most wholesome viral moments on social media, the grandmother replied: "Of course you can. That's what grandmas do...feed everyone."
