Opinion: The NFL needs to use Juneteenth to examine its race-norming past
The NFL celebrates Juneteenth but the league should do is use this day to reflect on why it used race-norming against its Black players.In a memo to all teams that was destined to be leaked to the media, Goodell, in part, wrote: "This year, as we work together as a family and in our communities to combat the racial injustices that remain deeply rooted into the fabric of our society, the NFL will observe Juneteenth on Friday, June 19th as a recognized holiday and our league offices will be closed. It is a day to reflect on our past, but more importantly, consider how each one of us can continue to show up and band together to work toward a better future.
