Friday Wrap: a Georgetown Cop Bullies High Schoolers, Texas Pollution Worsens, and More...

It's Friday! Time to report on all the news that fits in a blockquote.

If you're looking for something to do tomorrow and live near the Gulf, head out to the Adopt-a-Beach coastwide cleanup!

Below the jump, a Mean Girls actor comes out, a retrospective of McDonalds' advertising targeted to black consumers, and more...


This KXAN report of a Georgetown, Tx cop kicking and tripping students that were celebrating on a soccer field had over 200k views by the next day.

From NPR's Code Switch, a cringe-inducing study on being a black target of McDonald's advertising through the ages. Spoiler alert: before you were lovin' it, you were gettin' down.

Happy Earth Day, Texas!

You go, Glen Coco - and Daniel Franzese, too. In a coming-out letter addressed to his character, Damian, from Mean Girls, Franzese covers everything from heartwarming encounters with fans to the continuing prejudice in the industry and the "gay glass ceiling." If you, like me, are still trying to make "fetch" happen, you should give it a read.
