Blog #4

 Per usual, use the Mel-COn paragraph to support your position on one of the following two questions. Make sure to take a position and then support your evidence with at least two reasons to support your opinion.  In your conclusion, you should wrap up your main ideas.  Blog is due Friday, May 30, 2014


Donald Sterling, the owner of the NBA Los Angeles Clippers, was recently banned from basketball games and possible ownership of his team for racial remarks he made about african americans, including staying away from two specific people.  In the taped conversation, he short, told his mistress/girl friend that he doesn't want her to be seen in public with balck people.  He has since apologized for his remarks but the NBA commissioner is considering banning him for life from games and taking away his ownership, thus forcing him to sell the team.  Do you feel the punishment fits the crime or is he entitled to his opinion, thus exercising "freedom of speech"?

Second question will be seniors and walking through graduation even though you don't have the credits but are going to summer school to complete. Research pending....
