So today H&M ran an AD that most people would consider to be insensitive or flat out racist. I personally am not shocked by it since society seems to throw things like this in minorities faces regularly then apologize as if they don’t know why people are upset. What are your thoughts? Check out some of the responses from people on twitter today
Once again the police shoot an un armed black teen this has become an epidemic. As a father I don’t even feel comfortable sending my son in society because it’s like they get a free pass to get away with this stuff. Justice doesn’t exist and when it does it comes with stipulations such as a short sentence. Here is some pictures below from the chaotic scene people have been protesting since this morning so it will only get worse please read up on this.
Yesterday we had the chance of hearing from Juror B37 who explained how the jury went through this process. We also found out she had a book deal and was going to profit off this tragedy which made people even more angry after the fact. After watching her interview on Anderson Cooper #AC360 you could easily tell why the trial went in favor of Zimmerman. She made numerous questionable statements such as her opinions on Rachel Jeantel & you could also see she couldn’t relate to the victim. If you didn’t have a chance to see it make sure you check it out. A twitter user by the name of @MoreAndAgain tweeted @SharleneMartin who gave the juror a book deal a message about her thoughts on the book. It was followed by numerous people doing the same thing also sending emails faxes etc. Late night into early Tuesday a statement was issued saying that Juror B37 has changed her mind & the book wont be released. This was good news to hear because no one should be profiting off this and it goes to show you the power of social networks.
