Filed under: YouTubeTeensViolenceEducationalControversy

Racial tensions seem to be at an all time high in America, with non stop racially-biased acts of violence causing major civil unrest.

As hashtags like #BlackLivesMatter and #BlueLivesMatter permeate the internet, the divide between the black community and the police continues to grow.

But sometimes, the most powerful messages come from someone unexpected — in this case, a white middle school student from Atlanta, Georgia, whose slam poetry performance titled White Boy Privilege is taking the internet by storm!

Royce Mann performed his slam poem back in May after learning about white privilege in school. Two weeks ago, the video was shared on YouTube, and has recently become widely celebrated as the appropriate self-analysis by a white American in 2016.

In his poem, the 14-year-old admits that while he "loves" his privilege, it wasn't created by this generation — so, he invites other young white males to reject their privilege and share it with the rest of society.

Man With OCD Performs Heartbreaking Poem About Love And Love Lost! Watch!

Filed under: InspirationMental Health


This could be the saddest, most uplifting and inspiring thing you'll see all day!

Neil Hilborn, a poet with obsessive compulsive disorder, has gone viral with a heartbreaking poem about falling in love!

He performed OCD in June, during the individual finals at the 2013 Rustbelt Regional Poetry Slam.

In the piece, Neil explains how tough it is to deal with love and relationships while suffering from OCD:

The first time I saw her everything in my head went quiet. All the tics, all the constantly refreshing images just disappeared. When you have obsessive compulsive disorder you don't really get quiet moments… When I saw her, the only thing I could think about was hairpin curve of her lips or the eyelash on her cheek, eyelash on her cheek, eyelash on her cheek.
