    I looked for the telecast on BET Network.... Nothing :shrug:



    Meanwhile, If we're all about racial balance in the league, I anxiously await the summit for caucasian only players.... obviously coming only after the Asian/Pacific Islanders... Non-white Hispanics and the mixed raced bunch have had their say.

    Let me introduce you to the Manning passing academy:



    Lots of non-racist people say things about the “mixed race bunch.”

    Pretty interesting read, even though the author is biased a bit, basically about the perceived desire for more minority coaches on the offensive side of the ball, since most experienced coaches come from a defensive background and there is an emphasis on hiring an and offensive minded coaches.

    But it actually states that some of the African American offensive coaches are successful, but are not well known to NFL GMs, and are not recruited for openings in the NFL.

    “This book and these names will go back to Baltimore,” said (Ozzie) Newsome as he held up a program from the summit that included all of the attendees. “I didn’t know that it was this many African-Americans that were involved in coaching quarterbacks, and offensive coordinators on the college level. Now I do, and now I can act on it.”

    And for those that didn't know, Ozzie Newsome is African American.

    Honestly as a multi ethnic person I don’t think that a “black only” convention or whatever is acceptable like how people wouldn’t think that a “white only” convention would be acceptable

    Actually, I do not think it is 'black-only', I think that was misrepresented by the original poster. If you read the other articles, the panels are primarily African-American, but that is the intent, does not state anywhere participation is limited.

    LOL

    I'm sure you were shooting for something here... But not only did you miss the mark, you never saw the target.
