Capping things off with a MultiCultClassics Monologue…
• Baseball caps manufacturer New Era Cap pulled MLB caps deemed as appealing to gang members. The caps featured imagery associated with the infamous Crips, Bloods and Latin Kings. “It has been brought to our attention that some combinations of icons and colors on a select number of our caps could be too closely perceived to be in association with gangs,” said New Era Cap CEO Christopher H. Koch. “In response, we, along with Major League Baseball, have pulled those caps.” It was only a matter of time before bangers started busting caps.
• Burger King posted big 4Q profits, spurred by late night and breakfast sales. Profits could soar further if the King teamed up with the Latin Kings.
