    Dear Sofie

    I am impressed by your post, “Sports Inequality”, because it is amazing how Ibtihaj Muhammad has brought attention to the ongoing inequality in sports and athletics. I think it’s shocking that women still face gender, racial and religious discrimination in sports.

    One sentence you wrote that stands out to me is: “Ms. Muhammad has set…Read More

    What are your thoughts on the NFL Protests?

    In the article, “Should NFL Players be allowed to protest the national anthem?” I learned that Colin Kaepernick was the first NFL player to start kneeling during the national anthem in protest of racial inequality in the United States....

    • A big misconception was that kneeling was a sign of disrespect towards America and its people. The symbolism was in support of those who have been targeted just like you mentioned. It would be interesting to see how Kaepernick was affected after his silent protest especially how the NFL treated him.

    • “I think that how President Trump chose to approach the fact that NFL players were silently protesting was terrible.” You’re comment on how President Trump reacted directly mirrors how I felt on this incident. Having watched this on live television, I believed these players were doing the right thing by silently protesting on the national stage. The reaction from our president should’ve been more professional especially when these players have the right to protest in this manner.

    • It’s interesting to see how even the most small and peaceful forms of protests are still looked down upon by someone who was supposed to represent the people like the former president. The NFL player’s actions seemed to have more affect on the media than Trump announcing that he thinks NFL players who are expressing their right to protest should be fired.

    • Dear Joseph :
      I am delighted by your post “What are your thoughts on the NFL Protests,” because I agree with you on how the way Trump addressed the situation was terrible and it could have been handled differently. I think Trump should have respected the Player’s opinions if they wanted to kneel or not.
      One sentence you wrote that stands out for me is: “He tried to take away their rights to protest and so this made the NFL community unite even more.” I think this is important
      Thanks for your writing. I look forward to seeing what you write next, because I like how you wrote about this sensitive topic. I also really like how you bought this topic up I do not really see many people talking or writing about it.

  • Dear Axel:

    I am very impressed by your post, “America Means Sluggish and Unhurried Change,” because many people believe that America stands with the idea of progressive change and movement. Undoubtedly the US has made some major changes but need to stand collectively united to make more changes. The only way for us to fix problems is to recognize…Read More

    What to consider when looking for summer jobs?

    In the article, “CAREERS: Summer Job Edition”, I learned that if you are looking for summer jobs, it’s important to keep your mind open to possibilities and to be flexible. There are jobs and opportunities everywhere you just need...

    Dear Diana:

    I am impressed by your post, “Animal RIghts”, because it is important to let the public know how unethical it is keep wild animals in captivity against their own will. People should have the right to believe that Animal Rights are just as important as Human Rights altogether.
