Considering I said it was a terrible mistake, I’m not defending what he did. I am, however, annoyed by entitled white women who only seem to think black people commit crimes. Even when we’re talking about a white guy who was accused of rape, you couldn’t wait to bring up the black guy. Pitiful. My guess is your go-to is always O.J., Mike Vick and Chris Brown. How very predictable. There are always the Carolyn Bryant Donhams who walk amongst us and blindly look the other way. Eleven years later, you’re still on this but Rihanna moved on months later. This alleged crime was sexual assault. You bring up domestic violence. Not the same courtroom. Not the same crime. But a desperate attempt to find somebody black to blame.

Have you been in Trader Joe’s this week? Sounds like it.
