African Americans make up 13% of our population. 6 out of 30 is still 20% (over-representation). You're either too ignorant to realize this or you clearly have a race baiting agenda.
I didn't read your entire article because it's clearly ridiculous...I hope you didn't try and compare African American representation of players vs. coaches. You realize the 2 require completely different skill sets and the coaching representation should fall more in line with the population percentage. Right?
your a joke. one of those people that make everything into a race bait. maybe theres not more black coaches because they aren't as good or qualified? what about the lack of white players? self hating white smh
Anxiously awaiting your next article "Where did all the white basketball players go", starring Jimmer Fredette. The NBA employs African Americans in coaching positions at TWICE their representation in America's population. You're barking up the wrong tree with this one.
I just want to know where are all of the White NBA and NFL players. You can't call out one while ignoring the other. What you're talking about is affirmative action for the NBA and NFL. ......which is fine as long as there is a quota put on the min. number of white players each team has on it's roster. Otherwise, it's hypocritical and lacks double standards. How about just letting the person for the job/position be awarded it! Freakin' stupid Liberals and their White Guilt!
You're a pathetic ignorant excuse for a "writer why even start controversy with an article, than delete the comments you are a coward and a fraud please do us all a favor and get a real job at McDonalds
Why would you even write up an article that separates race to begin with Coward Beck?
