A rapper by the name of 'XXXTentacion' recently released a music video called "Look At Me!" that contains him wrapping a noose around the neck of a young white boy and hanging him. Disturbing as this is, many people in the comments section have expressed their disgust and hatred for the rapper and the action. But others, however, have argued for XXXTentacion's act calling it a "work of art" and seeing it as payback for centuries of slavery. If you are completely dumbfounded and anrgy about this like I am, congratulations. You have at least some degree of morality.

The International Business Times reports:
In 2016, authorities charged XXXTentacion with aggravated assault against his pregnant ex-girlfriend. He was also charged with domestic battery by strangulation, false imprisonment, and witness-tampering. If convicted, the 19-year-old could face lengthy prison time. He denied the allegations and denied the woman's pregnancy. The rapper pleaded not guilty and his trial is scheduled for Oct. 5.
