Kanye West can’t sell White Lives Matter clothes because someone else has the brand

Two black radio hosts revealed they own the trademark for the phrase “White Lives Matter,” preventing the artist formerly known as Kanye West or anyone else from capitalizing on the controversial phrase.

Ramses J.A and Quinton Ward, Phoenix-based activists and host of nationwide syndicated radio show Civic Cipher, revealed their trademark rights in a recent interview with KRRL-FM radio station.

“We are the federal brand holders of White Lives Matter,” Ja said. “If you want to sell this shirt, you have to knock on my door, or you have to face Morris, my attorney.”

It comes weeks after West, who legally changed his name to Ye, appeared at a Paris fashion show wearing a T-shirt with the “White Lives Matter” logo, a slogan created as a backlash against the Black Lives Matter movement.

Days later, amid an angry reaction to the shirt, West was suspended from his Twitter account for posting rants attacking the Jewish people, in a crash that cost the rap star billions in business deals.

Ja Ward explained that the trademark for “White Lives Matter” was originally registered by one of their listeners, who passed it on to them in a recently completed process.

This person who first bought it did not really like to own it, because the purpose was not necessarily to get rich from it; The purpose was to make sure that others did not get rich from this pain.

Ja Ward says they plan to enforce their trademark rights to ensure that any use of the phrase ultimately benefits black and brown communities.

Ja told Capital B.

He added, “These statements are all driven by the creativity and efforts of blacks, so we are all helping to use this as a measure to allow blacks to retain a bit of ownership.”

A review of federal records confirms that Civic Cipher LLC is the owner of the “White Lives Matter” trademark, which was first registered October 3.

This means West will be legally banned from selling his controversial T-shirts, which he debuted at a fashion show last month alongside conservative commentator Candice Owens.

However, the brand doesn’t prevent West from wearing the phrase on his clothes, as long as he’s not trying to take advantage of it.

Last week, West said he lost $2 billion in a single day as business partners rushed to dump him due to his anti-Semitic outbursts.

He claimed in a tweet that he wanted to go “Death 3 on the Jewish People,” misspelling the phrase describing US military readiness levels.

The music and fashion mogul has seen lucrative business partnerships hang off the shelf as companies like Adidas and Gap flee in the wake of his vile comments.

I lost two billion dollars in one day. And I’m still alive. That’s words of love,” West wrote Thursday on Instagram in a post that has been liked more than a million times.

‘I still love you. God still loves you. Money is not who I am. ‘People are who I am,’ the post said, naming Emmanuel Ari, CEO of entertainment company Endeavor, who urged the companies to cut ties with the rapper.

German sportswear giant Adidas said on Tuesday it was ending its partnership with the West after his “unacceptable, dangerous and hateful” statements.

Adidas also said it would end production of its highly successful Yeezy line built with West and “stop all payments to Ye and his companies.”

The move is expected to result in a loss of about a quarter of a billion dollars in adidas net profit this year alone.
