I cannot stomach these people who smile in such a smarmy manner in their mugshot photos. WHY?! It isn't remotely cute, funny, or endearing!
Because reading about equality and social justice is better than reading about racism. Period.
Well said. The blatant racism in the L/A area in particular boggles the mind. (Sorry, folks. You can still be a racist even if you're not donning white hoods and burning crosses and lynching people.) I've encountered people who are shocked when I've said that the member of the Somali community are equal to any white person in our community. It's unfortunate that there are people around who are 50+ years behind the times.
