when a white woman who has openly made racist, homophobic, and transphobic remarks, and insulted others on a regular basis dies of a heart attack. I’m supposed to feel bad and if I don’t I’m an asshole.
But when an innocent, unarmed black teen is executed, and his killer is DEFENDED, GIVEN LARGE AMOUNTS OF MONEY IN DONATIONS, AND GETS TO WALK FREE, im supposed to be cool with that and not make an issue of it?
