Black and White Rules of Life

1. LIFE IS NOT FAIR – The idea I find most ironic about the statement “life is not fair,” is that when it is presented it is often looked upon as a bad thing, why?

You say that you are rioting to preserve justice for Michael Brown and his family, however, Michael Brown’s parents have made it abundantly clear that they didn’t want anyone to riot for this cause, so how in the hell are you giving them peace? Continue reading
