two weeks ago, i was ready to pull an all-nighter. i had my wine, my popcorn, my twitter feed up on my phone, my tv tuned into the all-night swedish news, and my computer screen streaming nbc. i was ready for an epic night and the first woman president of the united states of america. and, oh was it an epic night. but, i remember the gnawing feeling in the pit of my stomach when i started to wonder if thingsRead More

I’ve watched both of the videos. The ones where police, in two different states, shoot two black men within 24 hours.
