Will: Carlton, carlton, I understand that you’re scared, man, but the world can be a scary place. Just got to learn to deal with it.
Carlton: Yeah, well, I found my way.
Will: That’s not you, man. that’s them.
^ i remember this episode i cried while watching this
Me too. 😢
This episode had me in tears, man. Like, you really knew the characters were growing from this. I loved how it was comedy and still touched on issues that affected Black youth. We need more shows like this on television.
You gotta think, the whole concept of this show was Will growing up in a bad neighborhood where shit like this happened all the time, and Carlton grew up in a life of privilege and sheltered from this kind of life, and I think Will was crying because he came so close to seeing Carlton go down the wrong path and end up like some of his friends back in Philly.
This show is so important.
Word , but they won’t put it on Netflix though ; fucking sad smh
Ive been in this situation many times. The most emotionally challenging thing to ever go through.
This episode really is the truth
This year 82 black candidates are vying for federal office, a record number, beating by 10 candidates the previous record set in 2012.
USA Today reports that out of the “82 candidates running, 64 are Democrats and 18 are Republicans, and all but three are seeking election to the U.S. House.”
The three who are not eyeing House seats are vying for the Senate: Sen. Cory Booker (D-N.J.), Sen. Tim Scott (R-S.C.) and Democratic candidate Joyce Dickerson of South Carolina, who is going for Scott’s seat.
USA Today’s political analysts predict that a lot of black candidates are going to clean house come November, “which means next January will bring in a Congress with the highest number of blacks serving in U.S. history.”
I hope yall are registered to vote in November
Get yall selves educated on who is running, their policies, their records etc
Get people out there to vote. This is more important than the Presidential elections…trust
Bolded for emphasis!
Many athletes pump themselves up before game time by slipping on a pair of headphones and cranking up the volume on their favorite songs. But players are going to have to make a change to that routine, at the behest of the NFL and its new sponsor, Bose. According to Recode, the NFL has banned players and coaches from wearing any brand of headphones — particularly Beats — during televised interviews and other on-camera appearances. The restrictions are in place during all games, as well as pre-season training camps and practice sessions, and it extends from the pre-game through to post-game interviews in the locker room up to 90 minutes after the whistle is blown.
