The Week in News: Highs and Lows.
Man, this week has been... trying, to say the least.
It was a week of ups and downs. The highlights: Zendaya (one of my favorite young public figures), is reported to play Mary Jane Watson in Spiderman: Homecoming. To see Zendaya's casting in the Spiderman franchise is incredibly exciting as a woman of color.
Frank Ocean dropped a visual album..... (finally!).
Donald Trump...... apologized!
But every time I get up, it seems like there's just as much trying to pull me back down.
Around the world:
Ryan Lochte demonstrates the absurd heights of white privilege, embarrasses, and disappoints America.
The flooding disaster in Louisiana devolves into a political battle of nonsensical parade.
The public response to some of the highlights above, reminds me of just how far we still need to go in America.
