BRONX NEWS: Pols rally support for city’s Columbus statue at Bronx parade


Pols backing the city’s Christopher Columbus statue took their fight to the Bronx Columbus Day Parade Sunday, where they kicked off a petition drive asking Mayor de Blasio to keep the controversial statue in place.


“That statue of Christopher Columbus stands here today as a testament to our immigrant tradition, and Italian-American tradition,” said state Sen. Jeff Klein (D-Bronx), who joined other pols for a press conference in support of the statue before marching in the Morris Park parade.


They collected signatures from paradegoers to present to a panel created by de Blasio — who wasn’t invited to Sunday’s parade.


Bronx parade chairman Tony Signorile said he didn’t extend the invite this year because de Blasio won’t take a position in support of the statue.

Italian-American group to quiz candidates about Columbus statue


“That’s an insult to all those immigrants who put that statue up at Columbus Circle,” he said, adding his grandfather was among the Italians who dug into their pockets to pay for the gift to the city. “As a leader of the city he should have took a stand a long time ago.”


De Blasio’s opponents for mayor did march, and lost no opportunity to take pot shots at Hizzoner over the monument squabble.


Republican nominee Nicole Malliotakis called it “mind boggling” that the mayor would create a commission to review statues around the city for potential removal.


“Obviously they feel insulted — and to be honest, they should be, because he has not taken a stand on defending the Christopher Columbus statue,” the Staten Island assemblywoman said.

American Indian group urges de Blasio to remove Columbus statues


De Blasio formed a commission to take a look at potential “symbols of hate” on city property, and recommend whether they should stay put, be taken down, or be altered.


He has declined to take a personal stand on any individual statue while the group does its work, including the statue of the 15th century explorer at Columbus Circle.


Many Italians revere Columbus as a symbol of their heritage, but opponents say he should not be honored because of his brutal treatment of Native Americans and the centuries of colonization he set off.


“Whatever happened back then — look, I wasn’t there, you weren’t there, it was in the 1400s,” said independent candidate Bo Dietl, who marched Sunday in a “Leave the statue alone” T-shirt.

Leave Columbus’ statue alone — you can’t rewrite history


“Let’s stop the nonsense. Let’s appreciate history for what it is. And let’s learn from history, the good the bad and the ugly.”


The American Indian Community House said it will observe Indigenous Peoples Day – which has replaced Columbus Day in some places. The celebration will start on Randall’s Island and end with an event at the Museum of Natural History, where activists will present a petition to rename the day Indigenous People’s Day in the city.


Also on Monday, Assemblyman Charles Barron (D-Brooklyn) will hold a press conference in Columbus Circle to announce Bill A8676 replacing “Columbus Day” with “Indigenous People’s Day” statewide.


“Not only did Columbus not discover America, some historians say he never even stepped foot on American soil,” Barron said in a news release. “He was a murdering imperialistic colonist, who enslaved African people and slaughtered indigenous people and should not be honored for it.”

Yonkers cops arrest man suspected of toppling Columbus statue


Meanwhile, a wreath laying ceremony at Columbus Circle turned rowdy Sunday when three young men interrupted the event wearing chains and a KKK mask.


“We will not allow you to celebrate terrorism!” shouted Glenn Cantave, 23, wearing chains around his neck and wrists. “We will not let you represent murder! We will not let you represent genocide!”


Cops escorted the trio out of the event, cuffing the young man wearing the KKK costume.


The Columbus Citizens Foundation conducted the wreath laying ceremony ahead of Monday’s holiday.

Power lawyers team up to protect Christopher Columbus statue


“We don’t celebrate him because of what he did negatively. We celebrate all the positive things that he did,” said the group’s president Angelo Vivolo, adding of the disruption, “I thought it was unfortunate, but they had the right to protest. That’s what America is all about.”

BAIT x adidas Consortium Support Future // Available Now

Released over the weekend, BAIT pushes the tech boundaries with their adidas Consortium EQT Support Future R&D Pack.

The EQT Support 93/16 gets a blanco y blanco Primeknit fascia wrapped in newly developed M.O.D. Cage enriching stability.

Glow-in-the-dark and 3M reflective materials hide beneath the surface ready to pop as soon as the lights go out.

Equally important, the EQT Support Future, was developed as a cross-pollination of the Ultraboost and EQT Support ADV silhouettes. With attention to detail reigning supreme, the upper is draped in Primeknit with 3M reflective materials sitting a layer below.

White pairs are still available over at Livestock. In light of the black pair selling out stay tuned to Nice Kicks for other adidas consortium locations and updates.

adidas EQT Support 93/17 White Blue BZ0592

The past-meets-present as the adidas EQT Support 93/17 silhouette receives a new color update courtesy of adidas Originals this season, assuming a futuristic palette of silvers and greys in time for the colder autumn months.

The latest iteration of the EQT Support 93/17 assumes a simple mesh construction with tailored yarn embroidery and knit mesh quarter panels, structured by the shoe’s signature molded TPU support piece and heel cap. Featured in full are the EQT’s essential webbing tape 3-stripes lace system, placed atop a molded Boost midsole with integrated 3-stripes-mark and a rubber outsole. The shoe’s predominately tonal grey upper is offset by a contrast navy blue panel on the heel and the midsole’s classic white colorway, creating a shoe with a space-age palette befitting its next-generation EQT aesthetic.

The adidas EQT Support 93/17 White Blue is set to release at select adidas Originals retailers including online on August 31st, 2017. Retail price will be 0. One of the retail locations you can purchase from is Inflammable. Below you can check out more images which will give you a closer look.
