My Brothers Keeper Alliance seeks to improve the lives of young men of color. Curry’s shoes will be signed and auctioned with the proceeds going to organizations associated with the former president’s foundation.

Team follows through on Trump snub perfectly

Curry and his teammates extended their outreach further during this road game visit. In lieu of celebrating their NBA Championship with the customary trip to the White House, the Warriors took 40 students from Kevin Durant’s nearby hometown on a tour of the new National Museum of African-American History and Culture in Washington D.C.

TSL wrote last fall that the team should have elected to visit with President Trump and use the visit to talk about ways to unite society rather than denying the visit. That was wrong. The alternative gesture the Warriors made was a more productive example of walking the righteous walk than a conversation with the president would have been. Reception to the move was favorable, illustrating another clear example of the power sports can play politically.
