Never Say Never

In 2014 I wrote a column about researching Native American Law. In it I discussed the controversy over sports teams whose names and mascots were perceived as being derogatory and racist. The most egregious of these names was that of the Washington Redskins football team. In 2013 their owner, Dan Snyder told USA Today that “We’ll never change the name.” “NEVER – you can use caps.” To read more about the history of opposition to the name see this Wikipedia entry. In 2020 never is now. The US is ro...

NFL, if you kneel for anything, you stand for nothing: Ron Hart

The NFL has somehow opened its season and at the same time tied itself to the muddled message of professional malcontent Colin Kaepernick and the BLM movement. We are not sure what they are mad about or asking for, and we are tired of being preached to by hypocrites who do not understand their own sermon. Thus, many of us tuned out. TV ratings for the NFL opener were down 16 percent. The few fans in Kansas City booed the maudlin message that players are good while white fans are racist and in ne...

Let that sink in.” Learning to live with Covid 19 coronavirus is not a viable option What experienced epidemiologists do is to systematically identify and critique the totality of evidence, somet...

Julian Duncan Is Pioneering a New Social Impact Role at the NFL Team Level

If 2020 has brought an unprecedented reckoning around racial injustice in America, sports might be among the most impacted industries, a testing ground for just how far corporate brands can move into political discourse.

How far will the left go to revise history?: Walter Williams

There is very little new under the sun. The monument and statue destruction that we are witnessing has been witnessed in other times and other places. A tyrant’s first battlefield is to rewrite history. Most notable were the political purges of Joseph Stalin. The Soviet government erased figures from Soviet history by renaming cities — such as the Imperial capital of St. Petersburg to Petrograd and Leningrad and Stalingrad — and eradicating memories of czarist rule. Stalin’s historical revisions...
