Why Do People Challenge #AllLivesMatter Over #BlackLivesMatter ?
The argument over #BlackLivesMatter and #AllLivesMatter is a simple one. There is a crucial reason why people try and discredit the first of the two that were created.

They can’t just disregard the live of a person they don’t like because of the color of their skin.

Former Indiana University Student Gets One Day in Jail for Raping Two Women
A former Indiana University student charged with raping two women will get off with a year of probation and one day in jail, WXIN reports.
John Enochs took a plea deal and was sentenced Thursday, pleading guilty to misdemeanor battery.
