Robin Williams made generations laugh and cry through his work as a comedian and actor. And during his life Williams was also an avid bike collector, adding rare, custom made, and sometimes bikes right off the rack to his extensive lot.

A Thomas Point of View

Can we talk?

Can we truly talk about the elephant in the room that you never want to talk about?

Race.

Let’s talk about race.

I’m black.

I’m a woman.

Two indisputable facts that you may have noticed.

I’m a mother.

To a son.

He’s the light of my life.

He’s my Munch.

He’s also black.

Why do I keep mentioning color? Because I need you to see and acknowledge the rich hues in my skin tone. I need you to see my melanin and know that I am black. Can you see the warm coffee colored hues of my skin tone just radiating? Yes?

Good.

Let’s talk.

I’m black. A beautiful black woman who shares a rich history in this country. My ancestors were kings and queens, slaves and sharecroppers. I know this. Many of you know this. But, I need you to stop acting like I’m supposed to forget…

Florida State receiver Travis Rudolph brightened up the day of a boy with autism, so much so he made the boy’s mother cry.

Rudolph and some other Seminoles were visiting a middle school Tuesday afternoon when Rudolph noticed a boy eating his lunch alone. Rudolph decided he would give the boy company and join him for lunch with a couple slices of pizza. The boy’s mother, Leah Paske, found out about the gesture, and was incredibly moved.

Paske wrote a lengthy Facebook post describing the encounter, which she said brought her to tears:

Here is the full text of Paske’s post:

Several times lately I have tried to remember my time in middle school, did I like all my teachers, do I even remember them? Did I have many friends? Did I sit with anyone at lunch? Just how mean were kids…

I just saw the murder of Alton Sterling and I’m horrified.

Did two armed police officers really drag an unarmed Black man to the ground and hold him down while one of them pulls a gun and repeatedly shoots him in the chest?

Is this the United States?

What fucking decade is this?

This post was first called “A Weird Kind of Blog Party”.

There can be no party.

There can be no joy until we as a people make this right!

If seeing the connection between hate speech and the brutality of everyday life in the United States makes me politically correct then I am a fucking politically correct liberal and I am in your face and I am saying that if you are a racist get out of my government!

Get out of my country!

There can be no parties.
