1. Anwar Sanders - A black police officer in New Mexico, Sanders who wrote a very interesting article about the two words he lives due to his occupation. Sanders penned piece also discusses the need for the black community to go beyond protesting for real action for change. A risky piece for him, but also a very, very, thought provoking one.
2. Baby Double Take Video - Here is a video recommended to me by the tag team partner. It's a rather funny one that will ultimately make you smile.
3. New Girl - You all know I do not watch much television (besides sports, and sports related content), but was recently sucked into this show with Zooey Deshanel and crew by my wife. Oddly, the show is hysterically funny and an easy watch. It's no Goldbergs, but still a good watch.
1. Sidney Hostage Situation - A late add to the "down", but nonetheless, a super important one as hostages were seen holding a flag with Arabic writing on it which possibly indicated "jihadist" intentions. The story is still developing as of the publishing of this post.
2. Lennon Lacy - For some reason, this story has slipped through the cracks among the situations of Mike Brown and Eric Garner. However, the shocking and awful death of Lennon Lacy in North Carolina has now become national news, and hopefully, the killers are found.
3. Caitlyn Ricci - The New Jersey teen who not only sued her parents for college tuition, but won, is now the walking and talking poster child for the entitlement generation. Shame on the New Jersey judicial system for imposing such a ridiculous judgement and for setting a nasty precedent for future spoiled brats.
1. Demario Bailey - While there are so many focused on bringing attention towards making "blacks lives matter", please read the story of Demario Bailey's death recently in Chicago. When will this stop?
