This is not my blog nor did I have any part in writing it, it is however something that I feel should be brought to the attention of Americans and the rest of the world. To see the original blog please go to www.positivelystar.blogspot.com
I was shocked and outraged to learn that the Valley Swim Club in Huntington Valley Pennsylvania seems to be enforcing a "whites-only" policy at their pool.
The President of the club compounded the situation and left nothing to interpretation by stating that the children were not welcome at the club as they might "change the complexion...the atmosphere of the club."
I'm sure you agree that is shameful that in 2009, anywhere in America, children have been turned away from a swimming pool because of their race.
I stand together with thousands of Americans across the country in condemning the Valley Club's discrimination. We are calling on the Department of Justice to investigate whether the Valley Club violated federal civil rights laws. Together, we are sending a strong message that this kind of discrimination has no place in our society.

From the man that brought you Phat Farm, Mr. Russell Simmons introduces his latest collection ARGYLECULTURE. Founded in 2007 as a way of producing fashion forward relevant menswear Argyleculture was birthed. A fresh breath of air for menswear, Argyleculture provides quality clothing for those that have "arrived" in the world.
Russell and the designers at Argyleculture continue to incorporate original urban concepts with more professional attire. Looking at the spring/summer 2009 collection, Argyleculture appears to be consistent with its business/weekend casual look.
Included in the collection are button up shirts, vest, sweaters and various polo shirts just to name a few. The collections use of navy, khaki, salmon, browns and yellows for the most part are carried out well. The design team does a lot of solids however Russell seems to pull off just the right amount of prints.
Over all Argyleculture looks to have a bright future in men’s fashion with their mix of urban casual meets professional attire.
