Adding to the stupid…

I’ve seen FB posts showing how people have either claimed he was high on drugs and therefore not cognizant of (and therefore, not responsible for) his actions.

I’ve read that he has gotten in trouble over pills. But *not responsible?

Also saw a reposted tweet where someone said he didn’t look white at all. He must be a light-skinned black man.

These are not by people saying these things from their couch or back yard. They were folks in the media. (I’m sorry that I don’t remember who to provide links.)

I really think so much energy is being wasted on trying to spin this away from admitting the reality of what happened, by who, and why.
