- Justin Bieber is getting into the plain white tee business
By Martha Tesema - Thursday Aug 3, 2017
Justin Bieber understands the timeless demand for classic white tees, and how hard it is to find the perfect one.
He's here to fill that hole in the marketplace with exactly what you need, because, well, what else is he supposed to do now that he's not on tour?
The singer is partnering with Hanes and celebrity stylist Karla Welch to bring a variety of white t-shirts to the masses for an impressive cost of $30.
Nah, this is not a joke.
The collaboration came into fruition when Bieber approached Welch and asked for a white shirt albeit slightly longer than the normal. According to Vogue, Welch went to town with a bunch of Hanes shirts and resurfaced with exactly what Bieber needed. That spurred a realization that well, if Bieber wants it then others might as well.

- AP Explains: How Robert E. Lee went from hero to racist icon
By RUSSELL CONTRERAS, Associated Press - Sunday Aug 13, 2017
Confederate Army Gen. Robert E. Lee was vilified during the Civil War only to become a heroic symbol of the South's "Lost Cause" — and eventually a racist icon.A son of American Revolutionary War hero Henry "Light-Horse Harry" Lee, Robert E. Lee graduated second in his class at West Point and distinguished himself in various battles during the U.S.-Mexico War.Lee accepted a leadership role in the Confederate forces although he had little experience leading troops.Historians say Lee's massed infantry assault across a wide plain was a gross miscalculation in the era of artillery and rifle fire.When Lee's father-in-law died, he took leave from the U.S. Army to run the struggling estate and met resistance from slaves expecting to be freed.After his death, Southerners adopted "The Lost Cause" revisionist narrative about the Civil War and placed Lee as its central figure.A generation after the civil rights movement, black and Latino residents began pressuring elected officials to dismantle Lee and other Confederate memorials in places like New Orleans, Houston and South Carolina.The removals partly were based on violent acts committed white supremacists using Confederate imagery and historians questioning the legitimacy of The Lost Cause.
