3 selfies shared by Chris Rock are just one more way he's demonstrating racism still exists.

"There's like three or four black people in my neighborhood."

Over the past few months, Chris Rock has been documenting his encounters with police.

In April 2014:

While we don't know whether he's been ticketed, it's upsetting to see how frequently this happens.

For decades, black Americans have argued that because of racial profiling, they're pulled over by police in situations where a white person wouldn't be. It's called "driving while black."

Rock's been vocal about racial issues and racial inequality throughout his career.

In the 2009, as part of The Black List Project, Rock recorded a video where he touched on racial issues within his own neighborhood, highlighting that all the black people living there were the best of the best in their fields, while his white neighbors were far less professionally exceptional.


That statement wasn't meant to be a knock against his white neighbor. It's an example of the extra steps black Americans need to take in order to reach the same levels of success as their white counterparts.

While some people might argue over whether Rock deserves to be pulled over, this is bigger than any one person.

For people of color in America, what he's talking about isn't brand-new information. They, like Rock, live with the consequences of racial profiling on a daily basis. But for people who don't see that racism is still alive and well in 2015, his message is an important one. And the path forward begins with making sure it's heard.

A disabled dog with no front legs can now run and play thanks to a 12-year-old volunteer at an animal shelter who built her a wheelchair out of Legos.

One-year-old Gracie was dumped at a veterinary clinic when she was a baby. She was covered in maggots and was missing hair under her eyes and on her feet and tail. She was also missing her two front legs due to a birth defect.

The vet reached out to a local rescue called Mostly Mutts Animal Rescue, in Kennesaw, Georgia, who took Gracie in to help her find a new home. The Turley family, who runs the shelter, loved Gracie so much, they decided to adopt her for themselves.

Gracie loves to play with her fur siblings, including a dog who is paralyzed in his hind legs and likes to pull her around, and on who has three legs. While Gracie can get around OK on her own two hind legs, her mom, Tammy, was worried about her getting injured so they enlisted the help of Dylan, 12, a volunteer at the shelter.

Gina Rodriguez doesn't exactly have a great track record when it comes to talking about black representation. There was that time when she (incorrectly) said that Latina actresses are paid less than black actresses. Or that time when she interrupted an interviewer for saying her co-star, Yara Shahidi, was a role model to black women. Or that time when she tried to make "Black Panther" about her. Now, Rodriguez is under heat again, this time for rapping the n-word and being "sorry, not sorry" about it.

Rodriguez posted an Instagram story of herself singing along to "Read or Not" by the Fugees while getting her hair and make-up done. In the short video, she can be seen singing the lyrics, including the n-word, and laughing. Rodriguez deleted the video quickly, but not quick enough. Twitter was, to say the least, not pleased.
