Chivalry is not dead.

Deepak Saini was about to leave US retailer Target when he noticed "major downpour" outside.

"There were quite a few people waiting out the storm," he wrote on Facebook.

"Then I noticed a kind gentleman who turn by turn, escorted women, mothers and their kids, to their cars under the shelter of his umbrella.

I'm sure he was busy and had his own family to return to. But in that moment, it didn't matter that he was black and the woman in this picture was white. It was one human helping another."

The viral post has since garnered more than 9000 reactions and over 3800 shares.

"Right now we seem so focused on race and are letting ourselves be painfully divided. Kindness is something we all need to give to each other right now and let this man be an example."
