11 holiday celebrated by the Commonwealth of Nations to honorthe members of those countries’ armed forces who died in the line of duty. It fits in with the NFL’s “Salute to Service” weekend, which is being observed at NFL games in the United States. The NFL isn’t the only league wearing the poppy during games.You might have seen NHL coaches wearing them on their suits this month as well. Remembrance Day is similar to Veterans Day in the United States, and the red poppies are symbolic of the bloodshed in the fields of Flanders in Belgium, where the poppies bloomed where some of the bloodiest battles occured in World War I. According to NFL communications , a number of jerseys will be sold on NFL Auction, with 100 percent of proceeds donated to the Poppy Appeal. The money raised by the Poppy Appeal supports the Legions work for the Armed Forces community.” A very nice tribute indeed and a subtle but terrific nod to the NFL’s integration into England. h/t Deadspin – – – – – – – Eric Edholm is a writer for Shutdown Corner on Yahoo Sports.

Loving Billie Holiday Doesn’t Mean Black Girls Aren’t Suffering | The Nation

We just have a little more than two years left with the only black president weve known, and perhaps the only one well see in a while, he writes. I pray that weblack folks, and especially the African American academyuse that time wisely, focusing out on the issues that matter, instead of in, on each other. Issues that matter? Black girls do matter. We are not focusing in on each other, but requesting that our president, a man many of us helped to elect and whom some of us continue to support, include women and girls of color in this particular vision. We are not only members of the black academy, as DuBois calls it, we are citizens of this democracy and heirs to a long tradition of black citizens who have expressed our criticism while working with those in power to help bring about a more inclusive nation. Please support our journalism.
