Nike’s New $150 COLIN KAEPERNICK JERSEY Sell Out in Seconds

Published

on

Icon Jersey 2.0

Nike commemorated four years since a former NFL quarterback Colin Kaepernick took a knee during the national anthem to protest against social injustice and racism.

The all-black Icon Jersey 2.0 was retailing for $150 and went on sale on Thursday morning. A few seconds later, it was sold out.

It seems Colin has gathered a lot of fans and who bought the jersey as a show of support to his course. On an Instagram post on Thursday, Colin said,

“Four years ago, I took a knee to protest against systemic racism and social injustice. It was that day that the number on my jersey would come to represent something greater than football, something greater than me,”

“Since then, the number 7 jersey has become a symbol for advancing the liberation and well-being of Black & Brown communities. Thank you for staying True.”

Its predecessor, Icon Jersey 1.0 was released last year and reportedly sold out in a couple of hours. It seems that, after all, Colin doesn’t have to bee in a team roaster to remain popular in the NFL.

The former NFL player started kneeling during the anthem in 2016 when he was a quarterback for the 49ers. He ended his contract in March 2017 and has remained unsigned by NFL teams ever since. He filed a lawsuit against the league on claims it had conspired not to sign him for starting the kneeling movement.

However, NFL Commissioner, Roger Goodell, said in August that they should have listened to Colin Kaepernick concerns on racism and brutality and encouraged teams to sign the star.

Nike signed the play as the face of the ‘Just Do It’ campaign in September and since then, the sports apparel seller has seen its stock improve. 

The jersey is old out on the company’s website but you can get it for hundreds of dollars more than its original price on eBay and StockX.com.

Kanye West

After announcing his run for the U.S. presidency on July 4th, 2020, Kanye West is officially on the ballot for the November election in 11 states.

The rap star and third-party U.S. presidential candidate visited Haiti last week on Friday. On his Twitter, Haitian President Jovenel Moise announced that he was with the rapper who had come to visit Labadee and I’lle de la Tortue (tourist Island destinations off the Haitian North-western coast).

His added photos were showing both of them wearing face masks. Local media says the 43-year-old rapper landed Friday morning at the Cape Haitian international airport where he met the president. He was wearing a lilac hoodie, his signature sneakers, and dark pants.

Receiving a bouquet, he was warmly welcomed by official greeters, airport workers, fans, and press members. He also bumped into tennis star Naomi Osaka.

 President Jovenel accompanied him on his visit to the two picturesque Islands. After a few hours and an outfit change, the rapper was persuaded by locals to join a dance circle, which he happily agreed to. He also took the microphone at one point and dropped some bars.

He shared a lot of pictures on his twitter, depicting Haiti’s history and captioned, ”Haiti is where our people started the first revolution that freed us from slavery.“ He added another caption, saying, “We are here to complete the revolution. We are building the future.”

On Saturday, his Haitian trip was cut short by his wife Kim K, who was waiting for him in Los Angeles so that they could attend the wedding of their close friends.

Was KimYe’s visit to Haiti linked to his candidacy? It remains unclear as he has not commented on the issue, and President Moise didn’t speak further about his visit on his twitter page.

China Threatens To Kill Tiktok-Oracle Deal Over Trump’s ‘dirty’ Tactics

Published

China’s state-run media is denouncing the TikTok deal. Terming it as “an American trap” and a “dirty and underhanded trick.” An agreement that a few days ago seemed like a win for China. The quick shift in China’s sentiments indicates just how complicated it is to agree on finding the proper valuation for the app. It potentially has huge repercussions ahead, depending on how the world’s biggest economies handle security threats that come with new technologies that could propel growth over the next coming years. 

The political stakes for China are like the marathon trade talks, which ended with a phase-one deal in January. President Xi Jinping does not want to appear to have been influenced by the Trump administration into signing any agreements.

According to Kendra Schaefer, head of digital research at the Trivium Consultancy in Beijing, “Beijing basically doesn’t want to set a precedent where the U.S. can be allowed to unilaterally flex in this way,” said Schaefer, “Having some role to play in the decision balances things out a bit.”

Oracle Corporation and Walmart Inc. agreed to take 20% a new Us based operation named TikTok Global. This entity would set a boundary over the apps international operations and data whose worth is estimated to be up to $60 billion. This operation, described by Hu Xijin, editor-in-chief of the Party-run Global Times in China, as “still unfair but it avoids the worst result.

The deal, however, seemed to please President Trump, who called off the ban on TikTok.

Signs of trouble emerged Monday, when ByteDance contended that it would remain in control of TikTok Global, contradicting President Trump’s earlier claims of Americans controlling the new entity.

From NBA To Homeless: Shocking And Heartbreaking Photos Of Delonte West Surface

Is this the end for the former NBA star Delonte West?

A video of the former NBA star began trending on Twitter early this year. In the video, you can see him screaming. He seemed to be on drugs, homeless, and in the middle of a street fight.

The latest photo of Delonte is of him standing in a corner at Dallas, Texas, begging for spare change.

Questions that are perhaps in all our minds are;- How did it get this bad? What were the warning signs?

The American basketball player formerly played for the Boston Celtics, Seattle SuperSonics, Cleveland Cavaliers, and Dallas Mavericks.

Delonte scored 9.7 points per game in his career, while shooting 44.8% from the field.

Many fans and NBA players have gone on to share and tweet their concerns, prayers, and well wishes about former Lebron’s teammate. Many have been wondering why the NBA is not coming to the player’s aid.

Unknown to some, Doc Rivers, who coached him when they were both with the Boston Celtics, says he has been working with the NBA, NBPA, and Jamir Nelson to try to get West the help he visibly needs.

Despite the noble efforts of many, the former first-round pick will have to want help. It is a sad and shocking sight to see the former star at such a state when many people have his best interests at heart and who genuinely want to help.
