LEGEND SOCCER COMPANY
Do you like soccer (or, as the rest of the world calls it, football)? Dirk does in a big way, and it has become a family affair.

Dirk's son Roland and 2 friends have started Legend Soccer Company,  developing innovative, sustainable soccer gear (and only soccer gear). Learn about Legend Soccer Company at the link above. Dirk not only endorses Legend Soccer, he's involved with it - "and not only because Roland is my son."

VBS, I can't disagree with what you've said here. Well, except the part about getting rid of Republicans... But if you provide a number of other options to the two party system I'm all for it.

I don't think the term "systemic racism" is meant, by most people, in the way you describe. But aside from that I agree - the MOST IMPORTANT things we need to address in order to provide EQUALITY...
