  1. I don't subscribe to the NY Times and cant read that article. How does it refute what I said though. You think a rich black kid isn't miles ahead of a poor/middle class white kid in being successful?
  2. The playing field is based off how much your family has. A well off kid no matter the color is going to miles ahead to their poor or middle class counterpart.
  3. I think in the NBA at least 50% of the coaches are black or at least close to it. Correct me if I'm wrong.
  4. Sure I was. Why am I to assume he was lying? Could've possibly been an oversight on his part. Either way it was corrected and I updated my take. The fact that you would think that says a lot about me says more about you.
  5. I didn't know what either of them said. I'm going by what was said here from Peace Frog. I'm not super into politics. Don't make assumptions.
  6. Absolutely if that happened. I think everyone qualified should be considered and you choose the best person no matter skin color or gender.
  7. It's ok to want to choose a black supreme court nominee. But to outright say that you're only going to consider a black woman and not include everyone qualified of all races and gender is just downright wrong.
  8. There is a difference when saying you're only going to consider black supreme court justice than just picking one. Biden shouldn't have said anything and just picked one but now you have the prospect of someone more qualified being shut out because they don't fit that certain identity.
  9. So what he is white? This is divisive. He can't have a valid opinion because of his skin color?
  10. I'm not in favor of a lottery simply because I don't believe ownership/GM's have the true capability to pull it off. Usually coaches and players won't get behind it because it reflects poorly on their future. Case and point when the Miami Dolphins unloaded all their good players and still won 5 games. Then the case where you may have a horrible team trying hard to win that doesn't get one of the top picks in the next draft. It may create a perpetual cycle of terrible teams.
  11. It might be a little disingenuous I guess you can say but it's good business practice. All in all I don't see a problem with them interviewing Flores even if they had the intention of hiring Daboll because there's wasn't an agreement in place.
  12. Unless you're rich. Then they don't care what color you are as long as you can afford to be in the club.
  13. Agreed I'm done talking about race. Let's just sh*t on the Dolphins and hope they get the NFL equivalent of the NCAA death penalty.
  14. Not necessarily. The job wasn't officially taken. I know companies who are enamored with a candidate and will say this is our guy but will continue the scheduled interviews for due diligence. Possibly a wow factor from a candidate coming in or in case the the guy they want somehow falls through.
  15. I really hope the Miami thing is true. If it's true how many draft picks do we think they end up losing? 2 consecutive first rounders? 1 1st and 1 2nd?
  16. We need more disgustingly wealthy black people. The wealthy hang with the wealthy.
  17. In your opinion my brotha just like this is my opinion. Everyone can think for themselves and nobody is going to think the same.
  18. So you're saying the evidence you have is circumstantial and also doesn't take into account personality, relationship with others players, coaches, ownership etc.?
  19. I asked a simple question because he said there isn't enough black coaches in the league. So I asked what the appropriate amount of coaches he feels is needed. I didn't say anything about significant I believe so I'm not sure where that came from. Do I believe there's racism. Sure. It's everywhere and it will never go away as long as people are different from one another because human beings are imperfect. Do I believe racism significant in this day of age. I don't believe that it is significant in the civilized world. I believe any significant racism is confined to a small hick town somewhere in Mississippi who now live on the fringes of society. I can get behind there being black owners in the league. I'm happy to support that and wish one of the 7 black billionaires would take the initiative in buying the Broncos maybe part of a collective minority group. I'm also happy to support more black GM's and coaches but I want that decision to be based on whether they actually earn that position over the others they are going against and not just by the color of their skin. If there's is any actual evidence that someone was not hired based on the color of the skin then I will be in full support of getting that owner the **** out of here. However, i'm not in full support of claiming racism just because there aren't what people feel to be enough black coaches in the league.
  20. IDK about that. As much as people change teams in the league, coaches, gm's etc. I'm sure this thing goes on with every team all the time. Everyone has friends in different organizations.
  21. There's no rule against John Mara getting information from Belicheck I don't think. If they are friends then I would assume they talk about football stuff all the time.
