Shabooty Anecdote: Darren Wilson Verdict Is Millennials’ OJ Verdict

I wasn’t in the mood for making this 140 characters, but today’s Darren Wilson verdict must be for millennials, what the OJ verdict was for my generation. I remember I was in middle school [during the OJ trial] and it just so happened to be the day for my mile run in PE. So I am there, running around the grass track doing the mile run struggling, and all the PE teachers (yes, they taught PE still when I went to school) — they were all huddled around a radio (yes, people listened to FM/AM radios when I went to school), and they were all listening into Judge Ito and as soon as a student finished their mile, they too would then huddle around the radio until it was a large mass of people at the finish line. I made it eventually, and the final verdict came in… not guilty. I was just annoyed that I had to be doing this mile run and that all the other students were in an air-conditioned classroom, instead watching it on TV. Of course the PE teachers were like, “man, he shoulda been guilty!” And you thought phys. ed. teachers were dumb… nah son! Think again.

As far as today’s impending verdict:
