This is what has to change, and these are the...

    Two white female students at Grapevine High school in Texas are finding themselves in hot water after recording a hateful, racist rap which includes such lovely ideas as hanging black boys from trees.

    In case recent stories like that of the killing of 12-year-old Tamir Rice by Cleveland police don’t make it clear, this country doesn’t exactly view black children as America’s Treasure. In fact, of the 2,500 kids serving life without parole for crimes committed under the age of 18 in this country, 60 percent of them are black.  But while black children are at a disadvantage from the beginning, there are whi...
