Yellow Kevin Pillar Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .I feel it is important to have a direct line of communication with our future president if we truly want change, West later said in a tweet.Trump met with West, former NFL linebacker Ray Lewis and NFL icon and civil rights leader Jim Brown, along with longtime Trump backer Omarosa Manigault, at Trump Tower in New York City on Tuesday. West refused to comment with reporters after the meeting, instead saying only I just want to take a picture right now as he posed for pictures with Trump.A few minutes later, West tweeted from his (at)kanyewest account that he met with Trump to discuss multicultural issues including bullying, education and violence in Chicago.West announced last year at the Video Music Awards that he would run for president in 2020. That means he would face Trump if the president-elect seeks a second term. After meeting with Trump, West hashtagged a tweet (hash)2024, the first time someone would be able to run for president outside of a possible two-term Trump presidency.This all comes as civil rights leaders have been asking for a meeting with Trump to discuss his upcoming administrations positions on issues like housing and urban renewal. The Rev. Jesse Jackson and other civil rights leaders last week wrote Trump to ask for a meeting to discuss urban policies, and to hold a White House conference on violence.It was not immediately known whether Trump would be meeting with civil rights leaders. Meeting with black celebrities -- especially West -- is not going to give Trump much credibility among black voters, said Leah Wright Rigueur, a professor of public policy at Harvard Universitys Kennedy School of Government.Exit polls showed only about 8 percent of black voters backed Trump.While Trump may see this as establishing a level of legitimacy, it does nothing to validate him among black audiences. Kanyes recent views are outside the mainstream of black political thought, as are Donald Trump, she said. If anything, the association only serves to weaken Kanyes standing, particularly since Kanye has been silent on issues like economic inequality, joblessness, criminal justice reform and Black Lives Matter.Brown and Lewis said they talked with Trump about the new administration partnering with Browns Amer-I-Can outreach program, which aims to teach life skills to young people from poor backgrounds.The full governmental involvement of President Barack Obamas signature program, My Brothers Keeper, which is designed to improve the lives of boys and young men of color, will likely come to an official end at the conclusion of his presidency.Brown said he didnt vote for Trump. But we couldnt have had a better meeting, said Brown, a three-time MVP who retired from football to pursue an acting career and crusade for racial justice. The graciousness, the intelligence, the reception we got was fantastic.Lewis, a former Super Bowl MVP, said on Twitter that wherever Papa JB asks me to go I go. His vision is beyond platforms.After the meeting, Lewis praised the Amer-I-Can program, saying because of it we have 30,000-40,000 former gang members whove changed their lives.If they can partner with the Trump administration, forget black or white. Black or white is irrelevant, Lewis said. The bottom line is job creation and economic development in these urban areas to change the whole scheme of what our kids see. Aaron Sanchez Blue Jays Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> .

TROON, Scotland -- Well that was epic! But what about for the guys who were not in the two horse race that was the final group? How did the tournament feel for them? I found a caddie that had just come off the course, who had experienced all the weather and flavor this championship had to offer. Enjoy!Collins: Whats the best thing about caddying in The Open? Caddie: Right now? Having a beer afterwards. [We both laugh] Nah listen, Ive been very fortunate. I think this is my 34th [major] ... its the one most special to my heart and Id dearly love to win one someday with someone. Ive come close with [players] over the last few years and to knock one off would be something special. Its always a great buzz, its a true test of golf having the elements and its shot making. Shot making seems to have disappeared over the last 15 years with the equipment; the golf ball doesnt move as much. So seeing these young guns struggling, having to knock em [shots] down and hold em into the wind, its great to see proper golf.Collins: Most challenging part of caddying this week was...? Caddie: This Open, well ya know, when its downwind or into the wind its quite easy to gauge. But when youre playing the whole golf course and its right to left going out, Is it slightly helping? Is it slightly against? And on the way back you find the wind howling left to right, Is it straight left to right or is it slightly against? Its a fine line. You always find yourself hedging your bets between clubs. Its very difficult but again its always about shot making. If you let it go on the wind itll go a long way. If you draw into the wind then it wont go as far. It really tests the golfer and the caddies mentality.Collins: [Player walks by hi-fives us and softly yells, Im done! happily walking away] How is Sunday different for the caddie? Caddie: Sunday is just another day when youve teed off in the middle of the pack. But obviously Sunday for these guys just getting out there [pauses], you know its fine. You feel fairly comfortable teeing off the front nine, even maybe the first two or three holes on the back nine. But when you get to like 14 ... 15 ... and the Claret Jug or the Green Jacket is on the line, then you find out what your mettle is.Collins: Even the caddie? Caddie: The caddie starts the chalk of it, theres no doubt about it. And experience, Ive been through that a few times, can help you down the stretchh. Michael Saunders Jersey/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal">. Theres no doubt those boys [the caddies] will be feeling the heat down the stretch and youve got to put your heart on the line and say what youre thinking. If the guys wanting to know, Is it seven iron? and you believe its an eight iron. You know, its not easy to stand up to the player and say, No boss. Youre wrong its an eight iron, when youre under the most intense pressure. The good caddies will say its an eight iron, some guys that have not had that experience will gag it and let his guy hit seven iron over the green out of bounds at the last [hole]. And the last hole [the 18th hole at Royal Troon] has just turned downwind and its playing so short, I can see somebody [player] on the gravel in front of the clubhouse ordering a beer before they finish the tournament today!Collins: Other than weather, what makes The Open so hard for a caddie? Caddie: ... The vast, vast changes in club selection. You know if the course gets a little bit burnt up ... I mean I caddied for [a player] at [a major golf course] a couple years ago, he hit a 7 iron off the 12th tee 280 yards. With a 7 iron! And youve [the caddie] got to read that. [Realize] is it playing fast and firm or ya know which humps are you gonna catch, which ones are you just gonna clear then get a shoot in bounce and itll run 40 yards. Thats the difference, you are open to the elements more than any other golf tournament and youre open to that little bit of luck. Getting that right bounce at the right time which when youve won an Open Championship youve rode your luck a little bit!Collins: Which was the hardest hole to caddie Sunday? Caddie: The hardest hole to caddie will probably be the 19th, Michael. [Caddie busts out laughing because at first he said the answer so seriously]. Nah, the 11th, the 11th always plays [then he thinks for a second]. Well the 12th is playing tough. Its a small elevated green and youre hitting a four or five iron into a pumping left-to-right into wind. Its a difficult hole.Collins: How hard is it going from here to the next major in only one week? Caddie: Its not difficult. Its a week off and you roll into Baltusrol fresh. Roll into Baltusrol wind a fresh mind just ready to play another golf tournament. And thats all it is, just another golf tournament. Cheap NFL Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap Jerseys From China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys Authentic/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Wholesale Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> Cheap NFL Jerseys China/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> NFL Cheap Jerseys/>imsun; font-size:medium; line-height:normal"> ' ' '
