Last weekend, the Reverend Al Sharpton took to the streets of NYC and participated in the Critical Mass Bike Ride. The event, which is organized by volunteers, generally happens on the last Friday of every month and involves bikers in cities all around the globe taking to the streets en masse to protest the car-centric society we’ve turned into. 

Lately, such massive displays of two-wheeled transportation has led to arrests and drawn the scorn of the NYPD. Al Sharpton thought he might lend a hand in drawing some attention to the cause. From Scanner, 

“The former Democratic Presidential candidate called for the police to leave innocent, law-abiding cyclists alone (the NYPD has waged a relentless and totally uncalled for war on Critical Mass Bike Rides for many years now) and introduced Sean Bell’s father and fiancee to the supportive crowd, who then geared up for the arrests and ticketing to come. The Reverend himself was probably too encircled by paparrazzi and amateur activist-journalists, all of whom were rushing to put this up on YouTube first.”

As you’ll see in the video after the jump, Sharpton is a little wobbly on his bike — but quickly finds balance and scurries off with a trail of paparazzi running behind. Go Al!

Don’t blame vegans for the shame you feel about using animals

The shame Carly Lewis claims veganism casts over her is more likely the ghosts of moral uncertainty, spectres that are more likely fish than cows, wondering how morality can possibly be used as ammunition in favour of murder.
