“Backseat Freestyle” by Kendrick Lamar is today’s theme song

Martin had a dream; Martin had a dream; Kendrick have a dream; All my life I want money and power; respect my mind or die from lead shower; I pray my dick get big as The Eiffel Tower; so I can fuck the world for 72 hours…

From those opening lines all the way until the end of the song I am dancing in my seat and ready to hit replay at least ten more times when this song comes on my playlist. This is my Happy. It doesn’t hurt that the video has Sherane shaking that ass like a salt shaker in front of a Lincoln while Kendrick does his thing. Get some.

 

Nigeria’s Stolen Girls

The circumstances of the kidnapping, and the military’s deception, especially, have exposed a deeply troubling aspect of Nigeria’s leadership: when it comes to Boko Haram, the government cannot be trusted. Children have been killed, along with their families, in numerous Boko Haram bombings and massacres over the past five years. (More than fifteen hundred people have been killed so far this year.) State schools and remote villages in the north have borne the brunt of Boko Haram’s violence this year. The group is believed to be at least partly waging a campaign against secular values. The kidnapped girls were both Christian and Muslim; their only offense, it seems, was attending school.
