New book recommendation for those who think racism isn’t alive and well.

Maybe we should have a federally controlled quota system for NFL coaches.

 

Then we could have one for the NBA - wouldn't that be dandy.


The guy tells the truth, gives valid examples of white privilege going on in the NFL and admits that he himself enjoyed white privilege, bravo for him  Then of course a conservative twists it to mean something else. Nothing new.

Maybe we should have a federally controlled quota system for NFL coaches.  Why?  Is that your only solution?  A government program???  What a Liberal!!!

 

Then we could have one for the NBA - wouldn't that be dandy.  Why?  The are plenty of black coaches in the NBA and not much "White privilege."

Concidering the facts of the matter, there is no way the NFL owners are NOT racist and calling their behavior PERCEIVED racism... well, it's NOT the spirit of equality talking.

 

Defending racists is what Republicans must do, or people will notice they elected a ToadPOTUS who is also a racist -news flash GOPers - everybody already knows, the people on Fox just don't talk about it, so you may not have heard.

 

No need for quotas, just continue to expose the racism and eventually the owners will grow up.


I was not aware that the any NFL team is owned by a toad or Fox for that matter - live and learn.

 

So, how about the NBA - a bunch of racism there based on "quota" thinking.

See for yourself....

 

 

Bravo!  Bravo sir!  You `Da man!

 

How wonderful to see an older white man who "GETS IT" AND uses his platform to point out the obvious implicit racism in our culture!

 

Bravo!  Bravo!
