Study: FBS leaders still white, male

ORLANDO, Fla. -- A new study by the University of Central Florida's Diversity and Ethics in Sport released Thursday shows that the top leadership positions at Football Bowl Subdivision schools and conferences remain mostly white and male.

[...]

Study author Richard Lapchick called those numbers "unacceptable" and said part of the problem with getting more diversity throughout the system falls on the lack of penalties or sanctions for institutions that aren't more diverse.

Diversity is perversity.

The article goes with this nonsense from the leftist UCF author of the "study":

Lapchick said he continues to advocate for an "Eddie Robinson Rule," patterned after the NFL's Rooney Rule, which would mandate at least one minority candidate be interviewed for all open coaching and key administration positions.

The NFL has been much worse off since the establishment of the "Rooney Rule", put in place by Dan Rooney, who gave a slobbering thanks to obama after his Steelers victory over the Cards in Superbowl XLIII.

“Football Bowl Subdivision”? That’s a stupid name. I still call it Division 1A.

it would be interesting to know why more and more men coach female college athletes but NO women coach male college athletes, that I know of....

why isn't there more protest about that?......I guess when they say "diversity" its code for "hire black men".....

Diversity should be a result of excellence on the part of individuals, not something imposed despite it.

Here's are a few biographical highlights of Richard Lapchick, that commie clown who prepared that so-called "study":

- Baracks are only 12% of the US population - looks like they are way over-represented in the NFL and the NBA

- But then Barack women have 27 times the AIDS rate of non-Barack women (TMI?)

- I guess that is Bush’s fault

would it be “unacceptable” if they were all black?

I always say that white guys who whine about lack of diversity should give up their jobs so that a minority can take it.

Wonder why there’s no complaint about the inordinate number of black men playing college basketball? I know white men can’t jump but they can still pass, shoot and dribble with the best. Basketball was more fun to watch when teams actually ran plays, players could hit free throws and dunking wasn’t the only shot in a player’s arsenal. By the way, coaches and other management positions should be filled based on candidates’ qualifications. Period.

Rick Lapchick was one of my professors at Virginia Wesleyan College in 1972. He was one of the nicest guys you’ll ever meet, but he was very deep in the farleft feverswamps. I would say he was just a tad to the right of Khymer Rouge communist, dictator, and architect of the Cambodian “killing fields,” Polpot.

so, the answer is to somehow force blacks in sports to more often than they are take a career path - and succeed in it - that will lead them to greater representation in FBS “leadership” positions, because “younger blacks” NEED TO SEE THEM THAT WAY or they have NO role models - when you NEED role models based on skin color that is

” White.

Naw, he’s got too sweet of a deal going. He’s the equivalent of an affirmative action hire for the race pimp lobby.

Affirmative action is needed for Asians on basketball teams. My son was discriminated against in playing basketball in college even though he is 5’ 9” tall!

Black males comprise about 6% of the US population.

The NFL should be forced to limit each team to no more than 6% blacks.

Affirmative action! That is only fair!!

Given that 67% are black now, that opens up a LOT of job opportunities for white guys, LOL.

That is true only if you allow women on the football teams. Otherwise, the 12% figure is correct. Blacks are 12% of all males in the population.

This old red is still alive? Thought he disappeared in the 70’s, along with the other anti-South African rugby team clowns.

Gee, old reds never die. They just smell that way.

All jobs everywhere should be filled on that basis, even though my saying so make me a racist!

I agree completely. I guess I’m a racist now, too. So be it.
