Trump, black NASCAR driver in war of words over noose protest

first_imgNASCAR’s Bubba Wallace accused Donald Trump of stirring up “hate” after the president demanded that the circuit’s only black driver apologize for protests launched over a noose found hanging in his garage stall on Monday. The garage door pull-rope fashioned like a noose – widely seen as a symbol of lynchings in the American South – sparked outrage when it was found but the FBI concluded it was not the result of a hate crime. Dozens of Wallace’s fellow drivers staged a demonstration against bigotry but the FBI probe discovered that the rope had been hanging in the stall months before the June 23 race at the Talladega Superspeedway in Alabama. “Has @BubbaWallace apologized to all of those great NASCAR drivers & officials who came to his aid, stood by his side, & were willing to sacrifice everything for him, only to find out that the whole thing was just another HOAX?” Trump said on Twitter. Wallace responded with an uplifting message “to the next generation” – and a denunciation of the president. The 26-year-old encouraged his fans to embrace “love over hate every day… even when it’s hate from the POTUS,” referring to the president. Trump’s tweet was his latest divisive rhetoric – he also spoke out Monday about US sports franchises considering changing their Native American-themed team names – ahead of November’s presidential election. The United States has been upended by coast-to-coast protests since the May killing of African American George Floyd by police in Minneapolis.The demonstrations have seen attacks on symbols of the country’s slave-holding history such as the Confederate flag and statues of Confederate generals.Trump has branded the movement a “left-wing cultural revolution” and an assault on American “heritage,” and vowed to resist it.The White House slammed the media over the Wallace clash, saying reporters were “mischaracterizing” Trump’s words.“The intent of the tweet was to stand up for the men and women of NASCAR and the fans, and those who have gone in this rush to judgment of the media to call something a hate crime, when in fact the FBI report concluded this was not an intentional racist act,” Press Secretary Kayleigh McEnany said.McEnany also declined to say whether Trump agrees with NASCAR’s decision to ban the rebel-themed flag, saying the president has not made a judgment “one way or the other.”Trump also weighed in on two sports teams that are considering changing their names and logos amid renewed calls for social justice and civil rights. The noose discovery was made shortly after Wallace had successfully campaigned for a ban on flying the controversial Confederate flag at NASCAR, a popular sport with conservative Americans. Trump also claimed in his tweet that the ban and the noose controversy had “caused lowest ratings EVER!” The president’s remarks came after two divisive Independence Day weekend speeches which critics said were an attempt to exploit racial animus and stoke fear among his base of white supporters, four months ahead of the presidential election. Last week Trump, who is trailing presumptive Democratic challenger Joe Biden in the polls, shared a video of his supporters chanting “white power” – before deleting it amid an outcry. NASCAR president Steve Phelps noted after the inquiry had finished that “the noose was real” and “our initial reaction was to protect our driver.” “In hindsight, I should have used the word ‘alleged’ in our statement,” said Phelps. – ‘Politically correct’ – President Donald Trump mocked the decision by the Washington Redskins football team to consider changing their name Read Also: Tension mounts in Premier League relegation battle“They name teams out of STRENGTH, not weakness,” Trump said in a tweet that mocked efforts to avoid marginalizing certain minority groups.“But now the Washington Redskins & Cleveland Indians, two fabled sports franchises, look like they are going to be changing their names in order to be politically correct.”FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Promoted Content14 Hilarious Comics Made By Women You Need To Follow Right NowBest & Worst Celebrity Endorsed Games Ever MadeTop Tastiest Foods From All Over The World10 Risky Jobs Some Women Do10 Phones That Can Work For Weeks Without Recharging10 Of The Most Successful Female Racers To Know AboutWhich Country Is The Most Romantic In The World?10 Of The Dirtiest Seas In The WorldCouples Who Celebrated Their Union In A Unique, Unforgettable Way8 Things You Didn’t Know About CoffeeThe 6 Weirdest Things You Can Learn On WikiHowWho Is The Most Powerful Woman On Earth?

Guptill, who had missed the last couple of months due to an injury, became the fifth New Zealand player to go past 6000 runs in ODIs. The right-handed opener reached the landmark in style by carving Sri Lanka pacer Nuwan Pradeep to the deep backward point fence for a boundary. New Zealand chose to bat and both Guptill and Kane Williamson notched up a fifty-plus partnership in the first of three ODIs. New Zealand won the Test series 1-0 after winning the Christchurch Test by a record margin of 423 runs, securing a fourth straight series win for the first time in history.Guptill joins former New Zealand skipper Stephen Fleming, Ross Taylor, Nathan Astle and Brendon McCullum as the other players to have gone past 6000 runs.

Pakistan pummel West Indies to seal T20 series

first_imgPORT OF SPAIN, Trinidad, (CMC) — Saturday’s convincing victory proved only a false dawn as West Indies quickly returned to their unpleasant old habits, plunging to a seven-wicket defeat to Pakistan here Sunday, to concede the four-match series 3-1.Chasing what would have been a series-tying victory at Queen’s Park Oval, West Indies struggled from the outset when they were restricted to a modest 124 for eight off their 20 overs.Opener Chadwick Walton top-scored with 40 from 31 deliveries while captain Carlos Brathwaite chipped in with an unbeaten 37 off 24 balls down the order.New ball seamer Hasan Ali was brilliant, snaring two for 12 from his four overs to clinch Man-of-the-Match honours while 18-year-old leg-spinner Shadab Khan once again played a key role, taking two for 16, to be adjudged Man-of-the-Series.In reply, Pakistan were propelled by opener Ahmed Shezad who lashed 53 from 45 balls, as they marched to their target with an over to spare.The consistent Babar Azam chimed in with 38 from 36 balls, while rookie seamer Kesrick Williams finished with two for 26 to be the best bowler for West Indies.The disappointing series defeat was the second straight one for the reigning T20 World champions, following their 3-0 whitewash at the hands of Pakistan in the United Arab Emirates last September.Marlon Samuels is clean bowled by Hasan Ali for 22.Hoping to captalise on Saturday’s win which hauled them back into the series following losses in their opening two games, West Indies started strongly with Walton and Evin Lewis (7) posting 27 off 17 balls for the first wicket.The left-handed Lewis, who top-scored with 91 on Saturday, looked to be extending that form when he swatted Ali over the ropes at long off in the day’s second over but perished in the next over when he picked out Ali at square leg with left-arm spinner Imad Wasim.Walton, who slammed two fours and four sixes, put on a further 25 for the second wicket with Marlon Samuels before he too departed, caught off Shadab at long on in the ninth over by Shoaib Malik who had earlier put down the Jamaican on 18.Walton’s dismissal triggered a now familiar middle order slide as West Indies lost a flurry of wickets — six falling for 31 runs in the space of 43 deliveries — as Ali and Shadab wrecked the innings.Tottering on 83 for seven in the 16th over, West Indies were rescued by Brathwaite’s career-best knock which included two fours and two sixes.More importantly, he put on an important 38 for the eighth wicket with Sunil Narine (9) which helped West Indies past the 100-run mark.On 121 for eight at the start of the final over, West Indies’ hopes of a competitive total were scuppered by the excellent Ali who tied down Brathwaite and Samuel Badree and conceded just three runs.Shezad then got Pakistan away safely in their run chase, anchoring two key partnerships up front to erase any lingering Windies hopes of a victory.The right-hander punched six fours and a six, putting on 40 for the first wicket with Kamran Akmal (20) and 70 for the second wicket with Babar.Shezad startedly slowly but picked up with two back-to-back boundaries off seamer Jason Holder in the sixth over, and paced his innings nicely to raise his sixth T20I half-century with a cover-driven four off Williams in the 16th over.Akmal fell in the seventh over, tapping off-spinner Samuels to Williams at mid-wicket but Babar helped steady the innings, stroking a four and a six while surviving a chance on 30 in the 14th over off leg-spinner Badree.He and Shezad fell in the space of seven balls — in successive overs from Williams — to leave Pakistan on 115 for three in the 18th over but by that time, the result had been virtually decided.WEST INDIESE Lewis c Hasan Ali b Imad Wasim 7+C Walton c Shoaib Malik b Shadab Khan 40M Samuels b Hasan Ali 22J Mohammed b Hasan Ali 1L Simmons run out 1K Pollard b Rumman Raees 3*C Brathwaite not out 37J Holder c sub (Mohammad Nawaz b Shadab Khan 0S Narine b Wahab Riaz 9S Badree not out 1Extras (lb2, w1) 3TOTAL (8 wkts, 20 overs) 124Did not bat: K WilliamsFall of wickets: 1-27, 2-52, 3-59, 4-73, 5-73, 6-82, 7-83, 8-121.Bowling: Imad Wasim 4-0-25-1, Hasan Ali 4-2-12-2 (w1), Rumman Raees 4-1-25-1, Wahab Riaz 4-0-44-1, Shadab Khan 4-0-16-2.PAKISTANAhmed Shehzad b Williams 53Kamran Akmal c Williams b Samuels 20Babar Azam c sub (R Powell) b Williams 38Shoaib Malik not out 9*+Sarfraz Ahmed not out 3Extras (lb1, w3) 4TOTAL (3 wkts, 19 overs) 127Did not bat: Imad Wasim, Fakhar Zaman, Rumman Raees, Wahab Riaz, Shadab Khan, Hasan Ali.Fall of wickets: 1-40, 2-110, 3-115.Bowling:Badree 4-0-38-0, Holder 3-0-24-0, Williams 3-0-16-2 (w1), Narine 4-0-19-0, Brathwaite 2-0-13-0 (w2), Mohammed 1-0-5-0.last_img read more

Former Syracuse center Fab Melo dies at 26

first_imgPerhaps Melo’s biggest mark left at Syracuse was his role in the lengthy NCAA investigation, which head coach Jim Boeheim explained two years ago. Most notoriously, Melo had a paper written for him that played a role in the eventual punishment handed to SU by the NCAA.“He was a really good kid, and it’s not fair that he will be defined by one thing: a 10-page paper,” Boeheim told ESPN.com. “He worked his tail off to become a really good player and was a nice kid. We don’t know the cause yet. It’s so hard right now, so hard to believe. It’s a sad, sad day.”Melo was one of five former SU players revealed as ones that factored into Syracuse vacating 101 wins, as he was responsible for 33 vacated games. Comments Former Syracuse center Fab Melo died in his home country of Brazil Saturday, per The New York Times’ Adam Zagoria. Melo was 26 years old and playing professionally in Brazil.According to SporTV, Melo was found dead in his home.Melo played for SU from 2010-12 before being selected with the 22nd overall pick in the 2012 NBA Draft by the Boston Celtics. He won Big East Defensive Player of the Year in 2012, but was ruled ineligible for the 2012 NCAA Tournament for academic reasons. He averaged 7.8 points and 5.8 rebounds in over 25 minutes per game his sophomore year.

Imama Shifts Focus to Building Strong U-23 Squad

first_img“We lost the game against Togo but the team showed the capacity to win. As you may not know, this is largely our U23 team needing exposure.“When players at that level play a competition like this they are bound to make mistakes. The first half was not up to the level we desired because there were some errors but we returned in the second half a lot much better creating many scoring chances.“As a coach I like to take responsibilities. It is my job to make the team create quality scoring chances which they did. It’s a pity the goals didn’t come off such opportunities and we lost. Teams come to competitions to win. We also like to win every match we play but we are also mindful of the greater objective of this team. Our greater job is to build a virile young team with a competition like this. We want a team of high quality that can serve us for the U23 competitions and also develop well enough to transit to the senior national team.”On Sunday the Eagles had greater control of proceedings on the pitch against the Sparrow Hawks but failed to convert several scoring chances.Nigeria will play their next match on Saturday against the loser of the game between Cote d’Ivoire and Cape Verde.
