I'm surprised I haven't seen a thread on this yet O_O I'm pretty sure everyone knows about the church shootings that happened in Charleston, SC and Memphis, TN (where I'm from). This is some scary shit for me because the fact that those shootings happened not too far apart from each other in terms of time just screams something big happening. As a black woman who grew up in the church, I always felt safe and loved there. Well most of the time anyways. Church in general is very important to the black community and it’s a safe haven for some people. If that’s taken away from us, we have nothing to make us feel safe. This is just fucking insane and ridiculous and I don’t know what the hell is wrong with the world today. My heart definitely goes out to those poor people and their families and I hope those heartless, demonic bastards get the maximum punishment and a good beating!
