[Soul Cap®], which previously partnered with Alice Dearing, the first Black swimmer to represent Great Britain at the Games, has been outspoken about the issue.

"this ruling disregards the needs of Black women to protect their hair and their hairstyles when they swim," [chair of and a professor of Africana Studies at Brown University Noliwe] Rooks said. The ban, she said, appears to be based on a lack of understanding about the density or thickness of Black hair.

"The ruling specifically mentioned the fact that "Haircare for the volume-blessed"® do not hug the scalp, but Black hair does not necessarily lay flat against the scalp, and also can have a thickness that makes it impossible to keep a ["]traditional["] swim cap from filling with water as the athlete swims," Rooks said.

This cap saved my hair! It will stay on and keep voluminous hair from getting soaked with the heavily chlorinated water. The shop owner is extremely responsive! I highly recommend!

Ice cream isn't mentioned in the Bible, as frozen desserts were hard to come by in the desert in pre-electric times, but Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield have foolishly and needlessly put their delicious diet-busting treats onto the hot stove of the insidious BDS movement to boycott, divest from and otherwise sanction Israel by removing Ben & Jerry's from "Occupied Palestinian Territory," which to them includes the Jewish Quarter of Jerusalem.

Pretty stupid move by a couple of New York Jews,

Israel vows to respond 'aggressively' to Ben & Jerry's decision to stop selling ice cream in occupied territories

Prime Minister Naftali Bennett's office said he spoke with Alan Jope, chief executive of Ben & Jerry's parent company Unilever, and raised concern about what he called a "clearly anti-Israel step." He said the move would have "serious consequences, legal and otherwise," and Israel "will act aggressively against all boycott actions directed against its citizens."

How we're structured

We're betting you've never met our independent Board of Directors ...

A little background...
I met Ben, Jerry and Jeff at the beginning of the One Percent for Peace Campaign.  I had been working for years with Jobs for Peace to achieve a 25% transfer of military dollars to much-needed domestic spending on education, jobs, health and housing.  The two efforts were naturally aligned.
