Obama: “Trayvon Martin could’ve been me 35 years ago”

Yow Yow!

President Obama gave an incredible speech while I was at work today shedding more light onto the Zimmerman trial. I have been following the trial on and off, but with all of the recent activity, I’ve done my best to stay on top of it. I understand that right now, more than ever, individuals feel so passionate about the case and for good reason. As a country, we have come so far, but we haven’t gotten  far enough. What this trial has shown me is that there is still so much work to be done not only as a whole, but within ourselves.

I wanted to share with you this recap from CBS News and I completely quoted the whole thing because I didn’t write a single part of it.

10 Favorite Moments in Skins

Yow Yow!

After months of anticipation, MTV will finally be debuting their version of Skins this evening at  10PM. While I am excited to watch their rendition of the first episode and season, I have been trying to remind myself that the UK version will always be better.
