Why Did I Just Let Out A Sigh Of Relief?

I'm reading about the shooting at that high school in Ohio, and I'm noticing that all the kids huddled together were black. So my first thought was Dammit! The Man has infiltrated our kids and now we're starting to shoot up schools, too!

But then I read the full report in today's news article...and come to find that Asa Coon, the shooter, was white.

I don't mean to get racial on ya'll but let's face it- when a black kid comes to school with a gun, he's not gonna take down random people just because. He knows the exact muthafucka that's gonna get a cap in his ass, for real, and that muthafucka knows exactly why he's getting shot. But for some reason, it seems to be all the rage with angry white boys to just open fire and take as many people down as possible. WTF white boys? Why ya'll so mad?

Now in this particular case, Asa had serious mental issues (according to the news), but then again, anybody who thinks it's okay to open fire on a crowd because their having a bad day has to more than a little "touched." And I like how the article stressed that Asa wore a Marilyn Manson t-shirt on the day of the shooting, and that he "worshipped" Manson and not god. Here we go again. I personally don't care for Manson as an artist- he fell off a long time ago in my book- but damn! Must every crazy shooter invoke his name?

Thankfully, those shot were only injured, and the only casualty was Asa himself. But can I make a request to the Asa's of the world?

Boo, if you feel like this world is shit, and you don't want to be in it anymore, then don't. Do yourself in. But can you leave the rest of us be? I mean damn! Get a grip, people!!

*smooches...wondering how hard it would be to home school my girls*
And there are corpses,
feet made of cold and sticky clay,
death is inside the bones,
like a barking where there are no dogs,
coming out from bells somewhere, from graves somewhere,
growing in the damp air like tears of rain.
