Terry Crews Uses His Big Black Muscles To Protect Little White Feelings

The Blindside. Y’all remember that shit? You know, the movie where the big, black dude was protecting white people and shit? I know the plot wasn’t that, exactly, but it was centered around a white family who just so happened to adopt a nigga the size of Texas, with the atheleticism of a 300 lbs Lebron James, who could also protect little white children from car crashes and shit.

Video: Houston Area Attorney Goes On Racist Tirade Directed at a Black Employee

The circulation of Black Death on Social Media

Why is it that images of black people being killed are able to circulate on social media, but content regarding the murder or abuse of animals is banned?
