So far two Guatemalan migrant children have died in our custody

(sorry non-Americans, I’m using the word “our” to stress our culpability)

Are we sure they're not elves? Those working conditions must be murder.

Not really an "I can't believe it's not butter," but anyway...

Alas, no Mark E. Smith...

In one of its final acts of 2018, the New York City Council unanimously voted to name two streets after some of the city's most legendary offspring: The Notorious B.I.G. (who was born Christopher Smalls) and Wu-Tang Clan.

Pending Mayor Bill de Blasio's signature, Christopher Wallace Way would be located in Brooklyn and the Wu-Tang Clan District would be in Staten Island

Allah U Akbar, I fall to my knees for forgiveness
Branded by the steel iron, bullets flying
Ladies being hit through wickedness, I'm losing my grip
I thought we lived by the books, The Bible, Koran
We pick cotton, my back is still hot and dark and
They threw burners in our babies' faces
Pale hands that looked scary touched our bodies in the strangest places
Sweat from the white man's head
Fell on our daughters as she cried, giving white man head

****in' hell that's great. Lame to use Biggie's real name but at least Staten Island is the Wu-Tang Clan District. Shoulda called The Rugged Lands of Shaolin tbh.

So they travel thousands of miles to the U.S., where the eventually die.

That's like when your woman spends 3 hours getting ready, you spend 10 minutes, and then you're 15 minutes late to the party and she blames it on you.

I know I shouldn't have felt good when I heard the news Mark E. Smith had died, but my first reaction was this little internal squeal of joy. Then I was like, no. That's bad.
