Over a half-century after Brown v. Board of Education and we still have to contend with affirmative action?

Enough is enough! The playing field has been level for several decades, IMHO.

I think we need a law mandating 50% Caucasians for all NFL and NBA teams.

Ex-coaches: Rooney Rule is broken

Only the crummy Steelers, who are big Obambi supporters, would even think of this insane rule. I'm glad the coaches are going for content of character rather than color of skin.

Can't think of any NFL team that wouldn't hire a knock-down tough nosed "colored" coach if available, so the ruling is stupid.

I'm told that the coaches will interview a "black" coach FIRST, then go ahead and hire the best man.

Whites are the minority in the NFL and the AFL. Patently obvious if you watch any of the games over a period of time.

I’m rapidly losing my mind because of all the discussions of race.

It NEVER ends.

The Rooney Rule is absolutely insane...and you have to be if you think it's a good idea. It defies logic. LOGIC: NFL teams are in business to MAKE MONEY. The people they put in charge are the ones they think will WIN and thus...make them money. It is a business decision and people don't make the kind of money you have to have made to buy an NFL team by being stupid.

That means if they think a man with pink hair and purple skin will win a super bowl...they will hire a pink haired, purple skinned man. PERIOD. It is a BAD business decision to hire someone based on their skin color...whether it is a white guy...or a black guy.

The playing field is “overrepresented” The front office is properly “represented” Some areas whites and Asians do better, accept it. You can’t have it both way.

If you want to bitch about quotas, take it to the Dems in the US Senate . . .

Could it be that Crennel, Smith, and Graves were perceived to be that bad at the end of their jobs?

Whites represent 75% of the nation’s population but only 5% of the NBA’s rosters.Do whites deserve “affirmative action” or should they be working harder at their three points shots?

"I know the concept is good and something we need to do," said Tony Dungy, who was with the Indianapolis Colts during the 2006 season when he became the first black coach to win a Super Bowl. "Obviously, it's not working the way it should."
So Tony, please tell us how it should work.

Should we designate that certain teams are mandated to have black head coaches? Should we set a quota that there need to be a minimum of x teams with black head coaches? Is a black offensive coordinator worth half a black head coach for your scoring purposes?

Affirmative action is a government admission that blacks, Hispanics, and women are genetically inferior to white and Asian men; 5,000 years of preferential treatment won’t change that.

Government speaks with forked tongue...

In the NFL if you don’t win you’re butt is gone ... whether a coach or player ... black, white, somewhere in between ... it’s about winning. NFL is short for ‘Not For Long’.

Hell - we have an affirmative action “president”. Proof positive that the program is a disaster and causes more harm than good - one “Black” gets elevated and millions suffer even more than they did under White “taskmasters”.
