On The Bright Side... | FOFOP 154 with Eddie Pepitone

  • Wil: Nothing means anything. None of it makes sense. None of it is fair. Even the things that we think are fair, aren't fair. Like, everything is unfair. It's all stacked against you. You're probably never going to get ahead, and then even if you are a nice person, bad things still fucking happen to you. Nice people die from bad shit all the time, and terrible people get ahead all the fucking time. Life is not fair, and it's never going to get fixed in our lifetime.
  • Eddie: This talk finally makes me understand why I love sports...

I didn’t always used to be such a cool, feminist, racially and sexually tolerant guy. When I was a teenager, I would make racist jokes. I called people faggots. I called women sluts and whores and bitches and I believed it, too. I thought I was so smart and so great.

The store I work at was robbed at gunpoint last week. Now I’m on the receiving end of a lot of shit eating “try not to get robbed!” comments. How’s about a suggestion for a new job instead.

An 85 year-old regular customer told my boss, in front of me, that she no longer wants my service because she believes me to be a male chauvinist. The fun begins!

I don’t even know how to react to this news.

What fucks me up about the Darren Wilson fundraiser is that he hasn’t been charged with a crime. He doesn’t have to hire a lawyer. He’s on paid leave, so he’s not losing wages. This is not covering his expenses, because he doesn’t have any additional expenses. This is a reward. He’s getting a $250,000 reward for murdering an unarmed black kid, two days away from starting college, in broad daylight.

Anonymous said: Is it racist that a white, 20 year old unarmed kid was shot by a black cop on Monday, Aug 18, 3 days ago and its no where in the news? Oh wait, it happens all the time, its just not newsworthy. Sucks to be white.

yoisthisracist:

Dear Racists: I know you’re going to to be trotting this out in the next few days claiming that this shows how white people are just as badly treated as black people in the US (though, of course, the idea that “it happens all the time” to white people is, of course, a ridiculous and disgusting lie).

But guess what, fuckheads, as usual, you’re wrong as fuck. The reason this tragedy isn’t national news is because, surprise surprise, a similar (ish) shooting of a white teenager by a black cop is being handled by the authorities completely differently! That’s right, you dumbfucks, this officer is being immediately and vigorously investigated, the officer’s name was released, the victim wasn’t denied medical care, nor was his body left on the street for hours. It’s almost like we treat black and white people differently in our justice system! And if you want to argue that the fucking Salt Lake City PD (oh shit, was I able to read about this case in the NATIONAL NEWS?!?!?! ) is racist against white people, you are fucking out of your mind.

So, nice try, you asshole, I know you were salivating over finding a case to compare this to Mike Brown, but, even with this timing, you’re not even fucking close to proving your racist “point.”
