Boycott the Black-Eyed Peas

Boycott the Black Eyed Peas and their demeaning portrayals of people with intellectual and  developmental disabilities. Epilepsy is no joke... 

No, I usually do not support boycotts. I do believe in freedom of speech. But when someone is a celebrity, and they have influence on the minds of the young, especially in the wake of all the suicides and bullying that have occurred in our society, it is time for people to stand up and say enough is enough. Just because someone has the right to say something doesn't mean they should and it also doesn't take away your right to protest.

Until next time,
