singles day: May the spirit of Dorothy Counts guide us all in 2017 and beyond "Look at this picture. What do you see? Maybe it depends on who you are. This picture was taken the morning of Sept. 4, 1957 - almost exactly 50 years ago. That week four black students integrated the Charlotte schools. Three of the four made it to class peacefully. The fourth was Dorothy Counts at Harding High. That's Dorothy in the middle, headed for Harding's front door. She's 15 years old. Her grandmother made that red-and-yellow dress. Dorothy's grandmother always made her a new dress for the first day of school. The dress has spit on it. The crowd has followed her all the way down the block. Every so often, something flies toward her: a stick, a chunk of ice, a balled-up milk carton. The students scream at her to go back home. This picture is famous. It ran on the front page of the Observer and was published all over the world. You can read so much in the eyes, the faces, even the clothes - look at that bow on Dorothy's dress, pointing up at her face like an arrow. Still, in this frozen moment you can't quite tell who's doing what. Stare as long as you want but you can't see all the way inside, can't tell who's leading the charge and who's just watching. But some people know. And some of them still live scattered around Charlotte. Ronnie Hall. Marty Wilson. Woody Cooper. Dorothy Counts herself. (These days she goes by Dot Counts-Scoggins.) They're all retired or closing in on it, chasing grandkids and nursing creaky knees, yet they have sharp-focused memories of a single day from 50 years ago. They see something in this picture that nobody else does. They see the themselves." ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ Editor’s note: This story by former Charlotte Observer columnist Tommy Tomlinson was first published on Sept. 2, 2007. ➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖➖ DorothyCounts ❤ CharlotteNC theblaquelioness

singles day: Steph Curry Won't Leave Under Armour But Believes Trump Is An Ass @balleralert 30 LEE ARA Steph Curry Won’t Leave Under Armour But Believes Trump Is An Ass - blogged by: @eleven8 ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Earlier this week in an interview with CNBC, Under Armour CEO KevinPlank showered Donald Trump with praises, referring to him as an “a real asset for the country.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ It was only a matter of time before UnderArmour’s most popular celebrity face was asked about Trump being an asset. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I agree with that description,” StephCurry said, “if you remove the ‘et’” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ Curry went on to say that he will still stand by Under Armour after speaking to the company at length. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “I spent all day yesterday on the phone,” Curry said, “with countless people at Under Armour, countless people in Kevin Plank’s camp, my team, trying to understand what was going on and where everybody stood on the issue. Based off the release that KP sent out this morning, and what he told me last night, that’s the Under Armour that I know. That’s the brand I know he’s built and one that, as of Wednesday afternoon, is something that I’m standing on.” ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ In the release Curry is referring to, Plank expanded on his comments, saying that he meant Trump was an asset strictly from a business aspect and that he does not agree with all of Trump’s controversial views. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ As far as the Warriors star, he wants to make it very clear that he will not stand with the company if they adopt Trump’s values. ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ ⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀ “If there is a situation where I can look at myself in the mirror and say they don’t have my best intentions, they don’t have the right attitude about taking care of people,” Curry said. “If I can say the leadership is not in line with my core values, then there is no amount of money, there is no platform I wouldn’t jump off if it wasn’t in line with who I am. So that’s a decision I will make every single day when I wake up. If something is not in line with what I’m about, then, yeah, I definitely need to take a stance in that respect.”
