6. To be fair with

that Richard Sherman part, it was just an NFC title game, but yeah...point taken. It's a racial double-standard for celebrating. Some of these I never heard about on TV, though, like the white politician throwing up her hood on the news and Nicki Minaj and Rihanna getting slut-shamed in contrast to the SI cover of the 3 half-naked white girls. I can't say I'm too surprised by any of it, especially not Elvis getting credited with being the father of rock-and-roll. Hell--we even have people crediting Miley with starting "twerking", despite it being around before many of her fans were born. This country is in the 21st century, but many times it still feels like we've undergone a time warp backwards.
