This is something that Memphis, TN is dealing with ATM. This mob/riot/whatever you want to call it occurred last night. The video only covers one man being beat, but it was a total of 4 people that were injured. The man in the video, two people inside that had come out to try and help the man in the video, and then a random girl that happened to be walking through the parking lot at the time. All victims were white and had no connections to one another. And that is literally all we know. The actual news has not even covered this yet and might not ever cover it. This event happened not even a block from me and occurred in one of the only places to buy groceries and supplies for miles. It’s just a bit intimidating to think about!!

I’m finally on holidays, so now I have much more time to make outfits!
It’s such a shame I don’t have any navy hair accessories to balance it out a bit more.
