Introduction
Drew Nicholson is an early-middle aged geek. He’s happily married the second time around, and has two fantastic sons. He’s a die hard Cubs fan, which contributes to his pathos, which makes being a poet marginally easier. He directed the Great Google+ Art Experiment video, which led directly to him being appointed Art Director of Sociologyplus.com, where he curated an arts community made up of painters and sketchers, musicians and songwriters, poets and videographers for a time. Circle him on Google+, where he writes poetry and short stories while engaging in some of the best conversations on the net. He’s was going to be the co-editor of the online writing journal “Scriptorum Tantillum”, but that never worked out, and has been published on CuriosityQuills.com. He harbors a deep love for Star Wars, Star Trek, Firefly, BSG, Horatio Hornblower, Farscape and David Brin novels, as well as a new found love for scotch to go with his long love affair with good beer.

I'm afraid you let your anger stop you from reading the entire post. "It's frustrating to see my anger at systems being interpreted as hatred for individuals." The OP specifically addresses everything in your reply before you even wrote it.

I don't feel sorry for either - both are obviously crappy parents. It's just interesting that justice is all too frequently not applied equally.

" The officers said this included being pulled over for no reason, having their heads slammed against their cars, getting guns brandished in their faces, being thrown into prison vans and experiencing stop and frisks while shopping."

NOT ALL OF THESE ARE THE SAME

Eminem’s music is uniquely suited to mashups and remixes, thanks to his already-warped vocal timbre and easily manipulated rhythmic flow. As YouTube user Orponmannen originally figured out in 2009, Em is also a perfect foil for ragtime. In fact, a clip of the lilting re-do of “Without Me” is again m
