Dope Reads: The One with The Cut’s Internet Rabbit Hole

This edition of Dope Reads was collected much faster than the last one. And I feel like I’ve read less. That doesn’t mean that these reads are any less dope than the reads that I’ve shared before that I called dope. Enough of the round and round, two of these reads feature photographs of President Obama (H/T Heather) and the late Muhammad Ali. I discovered the story of an awful murder of a baby that LeBron tweeted about… and how his tweet only brought him more criticism. And there’s two really great pieces about Ali from Keith Olbermann and Sean E. Eli. As always, save this somewhere for later because this could take a while.
