For this week's blog, you have a small assignment. Below is a link that you need to go to and read the article from the Washington Post. The article is 5 pages long, but won't take you that long to read and is important for you to understand the purpose for this week's blog post.
Granted, some of you may not be big sports fans, or even more importantly for some, football fans, but the issue that is raised here goes far beyond that concept. The real issue here is dealing with an question that is as old as the United States its self (actually, the issue probably can be traced back all the way to the first Europeans arriving in the New World). But I'll stop here, for I really don't want to influence anyone's opinions on this issue.
Make sure you READ the article before responding to the topic for this week and feel free (highly encouraged) to use information from the reading to support your point of view.
