The article “’We’re in this until the Name Changes’: Debate over Washington Redskins More Intense than Ever”, published by the National Post and written by Joseph White. The author begins by stating that aboriginals, as well as other people, think the famous football teams’ name, Redskins, is racist towards Native Americans. Though the argument has come and gone, it is now as intense as it’s ever been, to the point of being forced to make a decision in the near future.

The article “The one place in Canada where racism is still tolerated: native reserves” by Jonathan Kay in the National Post from September 22nd, 2014 explains that Kahnawake, a native reserve in Quebec, is enforcing a racist law. This law’s goal is to remove any non-native residents who live in the reservation. Kay states that people have left threatening messages to those who refuse to leave. Kahnawake is financed by big public transfer payments, meaning, the Canadian government is funding a racist community.

Being a woman nowadays means dealing with a lot of problems. In our society, women have to be perfect: they have to be beautiful, kind, intelligent, ect. If they are not, what usually happens is that these women are not as prioritized as “perfect” women are, because they do not meet our civilization’s criteria. ! Then, why are we thinking that women are socially equal to men, when both of the genders are exposed to the same society and yet, no equality is visible.

I’m all for equality and such but I’m sick and tired of men being labeled as evil savages whose sole purpose is to ruin the lives of women. Not all men are like this and yet we are constantly being portrayed as the essence of pure evil. I’m not saying there aren’t men like that in the world but it’s certainly not a majority and it doesn’t only include men.  We are constantly bombarded with messages of how men are all criminals, very rarely do we not see a man on the news followed by a title related to murderer and/or rapist.  There are good people out there, in fact more than you think.
