Top 10 Phrases to Describe 2016

I know this is a terrible list, but this is how I describe 2016 so far. Not all of these are phrases (at least I do not think so), but I call them phrases because they consist of multiple words. Some of these items listed below apply to other years as well (2015, 2014, etc.), but they also apply to this year.

The Top Ten

1 Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump Hillary Clinton vs. Donald Trump

In my opinion, they both suck. But if I really had to choose, I'd choose Clinton. - anonygirl

2 Mass Murders Mass Murders

This year it seems like there are more mass murders and terrorist attacks than usual. The Orlando Nightclub shooting, attack on Nice, France, mass shooting of Dallas police officers, Tokhar massacre, Dhaka terrorist attacks, Dilkwa suicide bombings are some examples of mass murde rs. - anonygirl

3 Racism on Top of Racism Racism on Top of Racism

I'm sorry for being so opinionated on how much blacks get mistreated. In reality, most murder victims are murdered by someone the same race they are (blacks killed by blacks, whites killed by whites, etc.). I just don't like hearing about African Africans getting killed for reason (regardless of the race of his/her killer). I've heard about more colored people dying this year than colored people dying last year (and I don't pay attention to the media as much this year as I did last year). I know most those people were killed by colored murderers, but still. I think black-on-black crime and white-on-black crime are equally racist because innocent black people are still being killed for no reason (regardless if the killer is white or black). - anonygirl

This isn't BS! This year, there were so many African Americans killed by police that there were a ton of mass murders of police officers.

I don't remember any stories about bunch of police officers getting killed because African American racism last year. However, there are a ton as of 2016. - anonygirl

4 Beloved Celebrities Dropping Like Flies Beloved Celebrities Dropping Like Flies

Celebrity deaths happen every year, but this year it seems like there are more than usual. Maybe the famous people that died this year were more famous than the famous people that died last year. I know most are 60+, but still. - anonygirl

I know! What's going on with so many beloved famous people dying this year? It's just so bizarre. - Britgirl

6 2009 All Over Again 2009 All Over Again

Yes, I feel like 2016 is sort of a repeat of 2009 (although 2016 consisted of a better economy and more advanced technology than 2009) for at least two reasons. There have been loads of celebrity deaths this year as well as 2009 (2016: Prince, David Bowie, Muhammad Ali, etc.; 2009: Michael Jackson, Billy Mays, Patrick Swayze, etc.). Also, despite it being summertime, I lot of people I know have a cold or the flu (the same thing occurred in the summer of 2009 with the swine flu). - anonygirl
