Aboriginal man Jarred Wall delivered the most polite smackdown to racists we've ever seen.

When Aboriginal man Jarred Wall overheard two old ladies speaking rudely about Indigenous Australians, he could have reacted with anger.

“I could have unleashed a tirade of abuse,” Wall said of the incident.

But instead, he decided to take the high road.

Going against every instinct after hearing their “distasteful” remarks, Wall bought the women a cup of tea and left a note on the receipt.

In a Facebook post following the incident, Wall said he hoped his kind gesture would help the misguided ladies to be a "little wiser and think before they speak".

"Hopefully there won't be a next time," he finished, and somehow, we don't think there will be.
