A Platform for Change

Racism in sports has been an issue since media and sports have been introduced to each other. Especially in the 50s, 60s, and 70s it was very hard for minorities to play with ``whites``. Now a days we see minorities all over professional sports, but it seems there is still a problem with racism.

As anyone who knows anything about baseball knows, in baseball there is no salary cap. This means that teams can buy players based of the wealth of the organization. The issue I am going to disscuse is weather or not a salary cap should be instated in the coming years.

Hidden injury that needs to be taking care of

A lot of injuries happen in sports whether it is a contact sport or a non-contact sport. Head injuries especially, are the most common in sports.

Since that issue is everywhere in the sport, people should take care about those traumatism. Head injuries create damage to the brain and can cause deadly consequences if not healed properly.

Invisible injuries are the worst

Injuries happen in every sport, at every moment. It is nice to see big hits in contact sports but for the players the impact can damage their health.

Those two articles talk about those head injuries and define them to make it easy to understand what it really is.
