I’ve had enough of everyone being upset about every little thing that doesn’t pertain to them. If someone thing legitimately affects you, go ahead, be upset. But sometimes you just need to let go a little.
Two cases from the last week that me me think this:
Lynch. Do you know what that word means? I’ll go to Google on this one:
LYNCH – (of a mob) kill (someone), especially by hanging, for an alleged offense with or without a legal trial.
I’m sure that’s what Lebanon Valley College were thinking of when they names Lynch Memorial Hall. They were thinking back to America’s dark times, and trying to figure out how to upset the most people.
Or maybe they were just naming it after the former President of the college Clyde A. Lynch. And maybe people shouldn’t be getting their knickers in a twist over this building name 50+ years later.

The biggest movie in America this week has to be Star Wars. It’s probably going to be the largest open of 2015. Of the 2000s. Of all time. Worldwide.
So it would only be assumed that kids are going to wear Star Wars t-shirts and the likes.
Yet when a student in Texas wore a Stormtrooper shirt, who was holding a rebel blaster, it’s completely normal to make the kid zip up his jacket and hide the image.
It’d be horrible if this sci-fi abomination would be allowed on our society.
I’m not talking about him carrying around a lightsaber, and you’d argue it could be used as a weapon.
He wasn’t wearing a Vader mask and hiding his face and looking suspicious.
He was wearing a Stormtrooper shirt. Stormtroopers. Which have been around since the 1970s with no issues. Suddenly that shirt is offensive.

Time to grow up America.
I don’t see millions of people avoiding the theaters this weekend to avoid the movie with guns.
And I definitely don’t see our Attorney General, Loretta Lynch, changing her racially overtoned last name.
