Hentoff is one of the few people who fight to defend the first amendment through writing. Douglas Hann, a white, junior and a varsity football player at Brown University, was disciplined for alcohol abuse and for racial insults against a black fellow student. Hann was celebrating his 21 birthday party at the courtyard, he was really drunk and shouted into the air “Fuck you, niggers!” referring to a black fellow student and later another student opened the window and called for quiet, and he was answered with a religious insult “Fucking Jew”. Although there was no physical action or any violent fight or threats, but many students were offended by the remarks Hann made. Indeed, Vartan Gregorian, the president of Brown University had to take action, along with the Undergraduate Disciplinary Council and they concluded that Hann had to leave the University forevermore.
30 minutes at three different bus stops felt like forever. There were times where my brother or friends and I had to fight night after night to get home, all because we lived a few blocks in the wrong direction. Some nights while waiting we had to run and hide because were getting shot at for wearing the wrong colors. Going through this has helped me physically in a lot of ways. It really shows when I play football, being as big as I am and being able to move as fast as I can, has gotten me scholarships to three different
At a campus event, I watched a Zeta Phi Beta member viciously smack the back of a pledge member who was covered head to toe in black and a black wrap covering her face so she could barely see in front of her. Friends of mine came back telling me how an Omega (Omega Psi Phi) member had his crutches snatched from under him and was told to hop, a common dance with this fraternity. But the appendix in the book "Black Haze" by Ricky L. Jones floored me more than anything I'd seen with my own eyes. Hazing is absolutely the ugliest side of Greek life that I'd
Indeed, it is no secret that too often scorekeeping, league standings, and the drive to win bring out the worst in adults who are more absorbed in living out their own fantasies than in enhancing the quality of the experience for children (Smith, Smith, and Smoll 9). Recent newspaper articles on children's sports contain plenty of horror stories. Los Angeles Times reporter Rich Tosches, for example, tells the story of a brawl among seventy-five parents following a Peewee Football game (A33). As a result of the brawl, which began when a parent from one team confronted a player from the other team, the teams are now thinking of hiring security guards for future games. Another example is provided by an L.A. Times editorial about a Little League manager who intimidated the opposing team by setting fire to one of their team's jerseys on the pitching mound before the game began.

The Ohio Rape Trial During the Summer two high school football stars took advantage of an intoxicated female classmate, this case has drawn lots of attention because of the two teen football stars not only raped a teen classmate they also took pictures of the girl and distributed the photos throughout the school district through main stream media such as texting, YouTube, and other sites on the internet. The reaction of the onlookers such as the ones who received the nude pictures of the intoxicated teen should have helped the plaintiff in the trial to put these two teens behind bars. The rapists or the two teen football stars should’ve never had taken advantage of an intoxicated classmate like they did not only did they rape her they sent nude pictures throughout the school to classmates and the girl even later stated that the two teen
“The shootings erupted as Stephen and nine other boys returned from a adult-chaperoned Halloween party. The police later concluded that the boys had been attacked in a case of mistaken identity: Gang members from a nearby neighborhood opened fire on the boys, seeking revenge for the shooting two hours earlier of one of their own. In all, three of the boys died, and three were wounded in the second attack.” These Bloods have so much anger, and so much to defend, they have the mindset that they should take no
Drinking Under 21? After graduating high school and starting college my friends and I were introduced to heavy partying and alcohol consumption. One particular party we attended off campus changed our lives forever when a group of kids we went to school with left the party after they had been binge drinking to go back to their room but they never made it. The car they were driving crashed when the driver failed to negotiate a sharp turn and drove head first into a tree. Everyone in the car was under the age of twenty one and they all died.
