    Its like putting in evidence the racial differences
    Especially when u call them minority nowdays


    What the next giving a second round pick to a team that decide to play a white running back?

    Or reduce taxes for interracial families

    Is this what they meant by "equality"?

    3 black head coaches and 2 GM's in the NFL in 2020. One of those coaches was fired.

    Giving people more opportunity is a good thing. If it takes draft picks to make it happen in the NFL, then that is what needs to happen today. Sad that it has to come to that.

    Juza - with all due respect, your examples are way off base.

    Call me old fashion but I like to get the best people for the job, whether they are white, black or whatever. I feel giving draft picks for picking black people is not only demeaning, but dangerous and as Juza said keeps people thinking there are differences

    I think it means the NFL is still so pathetically racist that you have to PAY teams to hire Black coaches just to try and achieve even somewhat equality in representation.

    3/32 is 9% and the black population in the US is 13%....

    its not that far off and not deserving of extra picks to rectify... its truly insulting to the black community to give picks out as an "atta boy" for hiring a black man

    not old fashioned, just common sense.

    this is further propagating racial divide

    Now tell what is the NFL player representation for Black players in the league?

    I’ll give you a hint... it’s 70%.

    https://www.theguardian.com/sport/2019/jan/31/nfl-tv-coverage-racial-demographics-super-bowl


    When your industry is 70% Black but the leadership positions are repped at a 9% clip, that’s PATHETIC.

    what’s truly insulting is that the league HAS to offer draft picks to give Black coaches opportunities in a sport where they overrepresent the entire league. But the league is still so racist, that I fully support them doing so just to ensure Black coaches get an even somewhat fair shake.

    call me crazy but a combo of 4 Black coaches/GMs out of 64 possible jobs, in a league dominated by Black Players does more harm for the racial divide in this country than trying to give Black coaches the opportunities they rightly deserve.

    no... it’s actually showing how atrocious the racial DISPARITY is between white coaches getting opportunities in a sport dominated by Black people that the league has to PAY teams not to be racist.
