RACIST RADAR

The driver cop pulled the Black man over.

“Why?” asked the passenger cop.

“Unsure. Just a gut feeling.”

“Really?”

“He looks suspicious.”

“Oh no,” the cop shouted. “Drive off!”

“Huh?”

“Your racism is coming out! Drive!”

The driver abruptly sped off. The passenger cop sighed, relieved.

“Man, that was close.”

PREDICTIVE REVENGE

Joshua’s heartbeat ramped up when he approached his high school crush. Everyone watched.

“Aubrey,” Joshua said, noting her disinterested expression. “I don’t like you. Never did. And only wanted to tell you that so I could ruin your day in front of everyone.”

Aubrey gaped. Joshua turned and walked away.

ALL OF THE MUCK

Grace punched David in the face, knocking him down. Students watched as she began kicking him.

Love me for life,” she shouted. “Want all of me and even the bad, huh! Well, how about this level of bad!”

David ran off, screaming,

“I don’t want it! I don’t want it!”
