Alton Sterling

I hear people say, “They need to take responsibility for their actions. They should not have been ________ (fill in the blank),” referring to the victim. Let’s say Alton Sterling was […]

Too Good To Be True

Christmas, Cups & Starbucks

As the ball heads out the back of the end zone, Seattle’s KJ Wright intentionally taps the ball to hurry it […]

Mike Brown… Darren Wilson. Eric Garner… Daniel Pantaleo. Walter Scott… Michael Slager. We’ve all heard these names.
