Also, check out the 2nd item below. Today is the deadline to submit an abstract for a panel on sports and corporations

1. Is there anyone who knows of some recent examples where sports organizations have been culturally or racially insensitive in how they use marketing and PR?? Academic references would be Great but I can use popular sources, too.
