Was just thinking about Trayvon Martin.
People call him a thug, yet I committed many more crimes in high school that he ever did. Not even close. I also got in way (way, way!) more fights than he ever did.
I wasn’t a thug by any measure – to be a thug, you have to actually enjoy harming people, which I very much do not. But I was white, which got me a pass.
All I am saying is that if Trayvon Martin was a thug, by comparison I was Don Fucking Corleone.
