Wish that had this stuff when I was 14 and pimply.
Robert Vuijsje, a Dutch journalist and writer, published his first novel Alleen maar nette mensen, or Only Decent People in 2008.

An interracial couple was taunted and the boyfriend beaten to a pulp for daring to love a black woman. Ladies and gents, be on guard.
Who’s with me? Let the campaign begin!
Love her or hate her, Mia Love is a woman to watch this campaign season. Jamila has a few choice words.
It was bound to happen at the Republican National Congress, wasn’t it? Bigots and racists find a comfy, fluffy place to nest in the GOP, and while the guys in charge probably find them annoying and embarrassing, they are tolerated because, frankly, those old geezers need their votes.

It’s August 30 and there’s only 117 days until me and The Hubster drain the coffers almost completely bare.
