Opinion: The NFL needs to use Juneteenth to examine its race-norming past

  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.

Some examples of the inspiration-themed interactive and educational features:

  • Alongside the story of artist Chiura Obata, interned along with thousands of other Japanese Americans during World War II, students are asked to talk about how art gives them hope.
  • Learners examine how nature's patterns in plants are mimicked by human engineering – and then collect and document the plants in their own backyards.
  • Read about and be inspired by typical teenagers doing extraordinary things. For instance, did you know a North Carolina teen holds a patent for a piece of equipment that firefighters around the country use for rescues?

Habla español? About 25 percent of the features are  in Spanish. English readers who want to speak Spanish can learn from those pages, as well.
