Don't call it a clap back, call it a take down!

Times are changing rapidly right now, and not everyone is keeping up with our society’s quickly shifting attitudes about gender, sexuality, religion, and race.

It wasn’t unlike when Senator Barack Obama beat John McCain for the office of President back in 2008 for some people.
