So, Dylann Roof, you know the guy who killed nine people at the Emanuel AME Church shooting, had the nerve to plead 'not guilty' to federal hate crime charge.
Really? I thought he was doing this for the White race. I thought he would plead guilty with pride... I guess he ain't about that life after all.
Then, Ray Tensing, the guy who shot and killed Sam DuBose also plead 'not guilty'. His body cam proved otherwise, but I guess he's feeling lucky. His bond was set at 1 million dollars, but somehow/someway the 10% was paid. His father posted the $100,085 to get his son out of jail. Rumors speculate that money was raised to post bail.
Ray is using the Cop Excuse: I feared for my life meme, which is ridic and tired. However, his defense will probably wear that line out in court. I just hope it fails.

Calvin Klein’s new fall campaign is basically about hooking-up. However, for the first time CK ad history, we have gay encounters in it.
Check it out
The couple who set Instagram on fire have called it quits.
Caleb Anthony and Kordale Lewis have sadly gone their separate ways.
People magazine reports:
There appeared to be no signs of discord in the family in January, when their lives were documented in a two-minute video produced for Nikon's "I Am Generation Image" campaign.My heart goes out to them
But Anthony's letter gives general clues about what went wrong for the pair: "Loving someone shouldn't be hard, it should be easy and stress free," he writes. "You should never have to question your worth or compromise your morals when you're with your soulmate."
It seems Anthony and Lewis made an effort to work out their issues but ultimately could not mend feelings of "disrespect."
"Neither one of us were perfect in our relationship, but when you are blatantly disrespected by someone who is supposed to be working with you to make y'all better, going to counseling smiling and telling you how much everything is going to work out…it's over," Anthony writes.
Anthony assures his kids Desmiray, Malia, and Kordale Jr. that he will still be there for them despite the breakup.
"To my beautiful kids, I'll see you this weekend at mommy's house; it's whatever you all want to do!"
"My love for them will always prevail even if 'Daddy' and I are no longer together," he adds.
Even though "needing" to write the letter "breaks his heart," Anthony insists that he still believes love will eventually prevail.
"Love truly wins," he writes, "and I wish the best for Kordale."
This is sad to post, but according to a survey conducted by Valley Youth House, Covenant House, Project HOME, the Attic Youth Center, the Mazzoni Center, 43% of homeless youth in Philadelphia identify as LGBTQ.
Philly Mag reports:
According to Valley Youth House, they saw the survey’s results as a “resolve to expand its services to meet the demand of this underrepresented group with programs such as a shelter specifically for LGBTQIA young people and programs specifically for transgender youth.”This is just Philly, imagine other major cities.
"We are the only agency providing independent living support for homeless LGBTQIA youth in Philadelphia," said Allison Moore, Regional Director for Valley Youth House. "Our Pride program provides rapid rehousing along with life skills, education, and employment support to about 50 young people act year, though the demand for services is higher than we are able to meet."
