“NFL Owners Decide To Punt In Meeting On Political Protests”


HUFFINGTON POST

“NFL owners met Tuesday with leaders from the NFL Players Association to hash out the issue of athletes protesting racial inequality by taking a knee during the national anthem.

If the early reports are any indication, neither party took a strong stand for or against the protests.

The four-hour discussion concluded instead with what seems like an extension of the status quo, according to Sports Illustrated senior NFL reporter Albert Breer. For now, players will continue to make their own decisions.” MORE

“Analysis: Voting Rights Hang in the Balance This November”


MSNBC

Wednesday’s Supreme Court deadlock ensured that North Carolina’s restrictive voting law won’t be in force for the November election. But it also underlined that the court’s four conservatives appear wedded to a strikingly limited approach to protecting access to the ballot.
