Because we have such a small team here at Clutch we can’t possibly get to everything happening in the world. Although we do log pretty long hours, we like sleep and sunshine like the rest of y’all. So, while there are a million things going on in the world we wish we could cover, we just can’t. So every day I’ll pop in with a brief round up of ish we thought was interesting, but just couldn’t cover. And who knows…maybe some of it will turn into an interesting article, maybe not. Either way they deserve some shine.

Shall we get started?

Let’s get the ratchet news out of the way:

Man Tries to Pay For Denny’s Meal With A Bag of Weed - Because, who else eats at Denny’s but folks with the munchies? {Crunk & Disorderly}

DETROIT: Two Bystanders Shot After Argument Over Kool-Aid – And it ain’t even summer yet, folks. Be careful. {WJBK, Detroit}

Pissed-Off College Student Leaves Greatest Voicemail Ever – This woman’s rant would make Samuel L. Jackson blush. These MF’ers better get her classes straight. {Deadspin}

Ok…onto the awesome stuff:

Ghana’s Flying Women – The BBC stays covering Africa in amazing ways. I was thoroughly moved and inspired by these young women in Ghana who are learning to soar. {BBC}

North Carolina Passes Bill Granting Reparations to Victims of Forced Sterilization, But Is It Nearly Enough? – We’ve talked about it before, but there’s no amount of money NC could give these victims to repay them for what they’ve been through. But $50,000 is a start. {Jezebel}

VH1 To Air ‘The Story of Yo! MTV Raps’ Next Week; Remember When Tupac Assaulted The Hughes Bros? – The ‘80s baby in me cannot wait! {Shadow & Act}

‘Scandal’ updates image of black women on network television – We aren’t all throwing bottles up side people’s heads! {CNN}
