They have our full support,” Popovich said per Melissa Rohlin. “I think these ppl have been enabled by an example we’ve been given, you’ve seen it in Charlottesville,” he continued, discussing the enabling of racism in America. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Our country is an embarrassment to the world,” he added. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ He then spoke about Trump’s decision to rescind Steph Curry’s invitation to the White House, in which Popovich thought was “comical - because they weren’t going anyway.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Popovich also divulged about white privilege, and how a discussion about race is necessary to make those that are comfortable - uncomfortable. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ "Obviously, race is the elephant in the room, and we all understand that.

Bowser, Friday, and Golden State Warriors: D.C. Mayor Welcomes Golden State Warriors "If Anyone Ever Tells You That You Cannot Come to D.C., Tell Them Mayor Bowser Invited You" @balleralert D.C. Mayor Welcomes Golden State Warriors “If Anyone Ever Tells You That You Cannot Come to D.C., Tell Them Mayor Bowser Invited You” - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ On Friday, StephCurry shared his opinion about the Golden State Warriors’ championship visit to the White House. Although he didn’t want to go for his own personal beliefs, the final decision would be left up to the team and organization. However, before the team was able to decide for themselves, Trump took offense to Curry’s statement and withdrew the invitation, prompting a Twitter storm of backlash. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In turn, the Warriors released a statement, saying they would use their trip to D.C. to embrace their team values of equality and inclusion. Shortly after the team’s announcement, another elected official in D.C. welcomed the team to the nation’s capital. D.C. Mayor MurielBowser shared a statement on social media welcoming the team to practice their First Amendment rights and-or lose to their beloved Washington Wizards during Warriors’ visit in February. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We are Washington, D.C. We are proud to be our nation’s capital,” Bowser said. “We welcome over 20 million visitors a year. Whether you’re here to work, play, practice your First Amendment rights, or lose to our Wizards, we welcome all to visit our museums, our monuments, our restaurants, and our thriving neighborhoods if they do so peacefully and respectfully. While you’re here, Warriors, we are happy to identify ways for you to celebrate equality, diversity and inclusion – what we call DC values. And if anyone ever tells you that you cannot come to DC, tell them Muriel Bowser invited you.”

Ayesha Curry, Chef Curry, and Children: Ayesha Curry Becomes New Face of COVERGIRL @balleralert Ayesha Curry Becomes New Face of COVERGIRL - blogged by @MsJennyb ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The real Chef Curry is expanding her brand and lengthening her resume with a brand new partnership in the beauty industry. AyeshaCurry, best known for her work as a chef, author, television personality and dedicated mother-of-two will now be the newest face of the beauty brand, COVERGIRL. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “My philosophy is all about seeking joy and creating balance in life. I’ve shared a lot about how I do this with food, family and faith, but now = through my partnership with COVERGIRL – I want to share how makeup helps create those moments of happiness, confidence and self-expression,” Curry said. “People love when I post about beauty on social media, and of course it’s a big part of prepping for my TV show or an event. But I’m also a working mom without much time to spare, so I’ve figured out how to dial my looks way up or way down, and also to use make up as a way of bonding with my daughters.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ The self-taught chef, with the help and support of her husband, used her life-long interest in food to build her brand. The idea, which started as a blog and slowly turned itself into a YouTube channel, ultimately transformed into a TV show called “Ayesha’s Home Kitchen.” Curry’s drive and constant pursuit of her passion is what drew the brand to her, as COVERGIRL continues to partner with people who “fearlessly and relentlessly pursue their passions and boldly express themselves to the world.” Mrs. Curry exemplifies just that. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “We love a self-proclaimed beauty junkie who speaks her mind and offers strong viewpoints and perspectives,” SVP Ukonwa Ojo said of the brand. “Ayesha has a joyful energy and a big personality, but she’s also extremely relatable. Dealing with things that so many woman face – from raising two children to running a business, to creating healthy meals for her family – she’s found a way to create balance. COVERGIRL loves spotlighting inspiring stories of women achieving their dreams, and inspiring other women to do the same.”
