Stephen Curry and Under Armour Launch The Curry Brand

Under Armour has announced that it is launching a signature shoe brand for three-time NBA champion Stephen Curry called The Curry Brand.

The Curry Brand launched on Dec. 1. A percentage of Curry Brand’s annual revenue is intended to be invested in under-resourced communities. By the year 2025, Under Armour’s Curry Brand plans to create, at minimum, 20 safe places to play and support 125 programs that impact young athletes. It also aims to deliver opportunities to train more than 15,000 coaches — making an overall impact on more than 100,000 youth.

Kamala Harris Reaches Out to Nurse And Frontline Workers On Thanksgiving

Vice President-Elect Kamala Harris has been extremely busy lately and she hasn’t even been sworn into office yet.

Last week, the California senator called a Bay Area teenager named Tyler Gordon after he posted a mural he painted and it went viral on Twitter. Over the weekend, Harris continued to reach out to a nurse in Chicago who is on the frontlines of the fight against the coronavirus. After speaking with the nurse, Harris shared the conversation on her Instagram account.

Earlier today @DouglasEmhoff and I called Talisa, a registered nurse in Chicago, and a few of our nation’s frontline workers to thank them for everything they have done in the fight against COVID-19. We won’t be able to get through this without them.

Unlike most charged with such a serious offence, however, Hennings has not only found freedom outside of a cell, he also escaped the lifestyle that got him there and is now a respected business man, author and sought after motivational speaker.

At the age of 19 Hennings started selling drugs, sharing that while he was doing pretty good in school, he got impatient. The thought of having to wait four more years before he could … Read the rest

Faizon Love Sues Universal For Racial Discrimination For Omitting Black Couple From ‘Couples Retreat’ Publicity Posters

The seeds of racism were planted in Hollywood many years ago, but it still bears the fruit of it today. According to The Hollywood Reporter, actor Faizon Love has filed a lawsuit against Universal for leaving him and his “wife” co-star Kali Hawk off posters promoting the 2009 movie, “Couples Retreat.” Love and Hawk was, coincidentally, the only couple that wasn’t white.

According to the lawsuit Love filed, he stated he was “aghast” when finding out that Universal included him and Hawk in the domestic movie poster but, took the couple off for the international version.

“Universal Studios had no problem featuring Black actors in the comedic film,” it says in the complaint. “But when it came to publicizing the film to international audiences, Universal Studios chose to segregate the motion picture’s White and Black actors… Rather than enjoy maximum visibility with the film’s release, Mr. Love was demoted … Read the rest
