Shameik Moore Gets Cancelled After Saying Black People Are At Fault For Their Experience With The Police

With the current racial movement, people have spoken out in support of the movement and their personal experience in law enforcement. However, some rather say a different narrative than the real issue at hand in this country because they believe that the rest of the world is beneath.

Shameik Moore, notable known for his role as Miles Morales in Into The Spiderverse, went on his platform on Twitter and Instagram to say how the black community needs to know how to act around police. He even went as far as to say Rosa Parks could've taken a black taxi cab. Black Twitter rightfully dragged him and educated him on African American history. He tried to explain himself to life, but he only reiterated himself. As a black person, you know that even if you comply, have your license and registration, and act respectful, the police will still see a threat because your skin color is darker. Those tweets and videos he did spoke of someone ignorant and out of touch with his community. As you sit in your studio apartment. your hometown of Atlanta is marching for justice for Ahmaud Arbrey.

When you become famous and not have people in your circle that have experienced or endured the same environment you have, you grow out of touch with your people. You care more about keeping your check than supporting your people, then you are placed in the coon category and forgot that the people you are making angry are the same ones that supported you and put you in the position you are in.

No matter how much money you have, what position you hold, no matter what your name is, you are still B-L-A-C-K. Being a coon for the dollar is a betrayal to your family, friends, and race. To anyone who wants to become an actor, rapper, athlete, or famous, do not forget where you came from.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
