10 Of The Best Moments From The Adventures Of Pete And Pete



Dick riding IS NOT a form of transportation!!!!!!!! 

not with that attitude

This is a very serious disease* so I gladly accept the “bucket challenge”

*My heart goes out to all those who struggle with ALS but I am, of course, talking about the disease of apathy.  If (and hopefully when) Michael Brown’s killer is brought to justice and convicted of 1st degree murder, it still won’t prevent this from happening again. We cannot accept this as the status quo. We MUST continue the fight at the ballot box, in the media and by working to create systemic change. I’m not naive to the dirty politics (redistricting, voter ID requirements, etc) that will try to prevent us from our goal. But I refuse to give up hope. My “bullet bucket challenge” is not about pointing fingers and it’s not about being angry. Every shell casing in that bucket represents the life of someone who fought and died in the goal for civil rights and human dignity. As a member of law enforcement (yes I really am a reserve sheriff) I will not stand idly by while others violate civil and human rights under the cover of authority and I will insist that other good cops rise to the same standard as well. As a black man I will demand more from myself and my community. I will not allow outsiders to co-opt our struggle in order to commit violence in our name. I’m channeling my outrage into action so I no longer feel powerless. It’s not about black or white. It’s not about rich or poor. It’s about us vs. them. There are more of us — from all races, genders and identities — then there will ever be of them. And we will be victorious”

This is absolutely amazing.

i am not “mad” at black celebrities who are markedly silent, or worse, being opportunistic regarding the crisis of the dehumanization and extrajudicial execution of black people. 

but i peep all the game and know exactly who is NOT getting my money, ever. 

Conversely, I am taking note of all the celebs who are speaking out. I don’t watch Grey’s Anatomy and had no idea who Jesse Williams was before these events. But at the rate he’s going, I will support any future projects of his until he decides to bow out of the entertainment industry.
