The Kanye Effect: Trump's Support Among Black Males Doubles

Do you think President Donald J. Trump's increase in support among black men is a result of Kanye West's comments or something else?

"We love athletes that have a platform to make the world a better place", said Mark King (via The Arizona Republic), Adidas's North American president.

However, the German businessman hinted that the star's outburst was an unwanted distraction adding, "I saw the comment as you have seen it".

In some regions, sand and desert dust, waste burning and deforestation are additional sources of air pollution . The report also claimed that 9 out of 10 people breathe air filled with pollutants.

The shoe company is standing behind West, who designs sneakers under the Yeezy brand for Adidas, because he's great for business, Adidas CEO Kasper Rorsted told CNBC's "Squawk on the Street" on Thursday.

Despite stirring up controversy in recent weeks by sharing a seemingly never-ending stream of opinions via tweets and TV appearances, Kanye West reportedly won't be cut from his partnership with Adidas anytime soon. West appeared volatile and erratic, first admitting that he was addicted to opioids and eventually delivering this jaw-dropping statement: "When you hear about slavery for 400 years - for 400 years?" "You were there for 400 years and it was all of y'all?" Kanye said he was addicted to opioids that doctors prescribed after he received liposuction. Even if you want to "cancel" Kanye and remove his "black card", that's your choice - and we shouldn't accept his ignorant comments about slavery - but attacking and making fun of him does not help.

I saw the comment as you have seen it. And then he deleted some of the tweets. "Kanye will always be a friend of mine & although I might not necessarily agree with his views on certain topics, that is what separate us as individuals".

SUMMARY.Several severe storms are expected to develop along the dryline and quasi-stationary front through this evening. Meanwhile, east of the severe storms, very warm air is surging into the Midwest and Northeast.

Rorsted played down the impact of West's comments, noting that Adidas earned almost $25 billion in its last fiscal year. "So, prison is something that unites us as one race. That's pretty much the party line at this stage", he said. "I know Kanye's heart".

"Dragon Energy? Hell yea, I want some of that!"

"The statement was an example of free thought".
