Last year, Mexico and the NFL worked together to bring the sport south of the border. To honor the event, several Mexican artists were commissioned to reimagine each NFL helmet in a new and interesting way. Some of the helmets were easy enough to identify, however, other helmets looked nothing like the team from which they drew their inspiration. But hey, that’s art! Here’s quiz of some of the harder to identify Mexican helmets that were inspired by the teams of the NFL. See how many you can guess!
On February 2nd, New Yorkers of all nationalities banded together with thousands of Yemenis and Yemeni-Americans who took to the streets of Brooklyn to protest President Trump’s recent travel ban. Many of the Yemeni and Yemeni-American protesters were bodega owners, so their protest was more than just taking to the streets to chant — they shut down their bodegas for the day to show what America looks like when you eliminate immigrants.
More than 1,000 bodegas participated in the strike to protest President Trump’s immigration ban.
“The message that the merchants are sending is that they are part of the American fabric and the Muslim ban has devastated them and their families,” Debbie Almontaser, the woman behind the bodegea strike, told NPR.
Protesters had one message: refugees and immigrants are welcome.
