After a week of police brutality against citizens peacefully protesting state-sponsored violence against black Americans, it’s difficult to envision progress for this country. Our president’s dystopian church photo opp would almost be too on the nose if this were a movie. But change must come, and the fortitude we’ve seen in the streets — and yes, even on social media — will help us get there. These sites to donate and educate yourself are a good place to start.
Your comments from a heated week of political discourse are below. Thank you guys for not forcing me to ban anyone.

“I Love Rock & Roll” is horrible. Joan Jett is horrible. That she’s in the HOF while Steppenwolf, Grand Funk, and BOC are not is a travesty.
“We Got the Beat” is horrible. It sounds like a Doodlebops reject. The GoGos couldn’t write a song to save their lives.
This feature and its comment section often reminds me of the Simpson’s Superbowl Halftime show, “Hooray For Everything!’
