it is the NFL a league that releases a press release and "Barry Horowitz" themselves for finally assembling an all Black officiating crew like anybody cares....

it is not a big deal and nobody should care but with the press release somebody is going to get upset

I dunno. Isn’t it like a press release that says ‘Were not racist, see?’ and it’s trying too hard

What if they assembled a crew of what they rated as their best officiating crew at each individual position on the field? I await the press release.

They will be black too :):)

But again it is a league that is giving draft capital because they ownership has a hard time hiring black candidates with similar credentials as their white counterparts... I mean the NFL likes to pat themselves on the back for stupid shit it is 2020 social media world we live in ... People film themselves giving money to homeless people ... i mean everybody in the world nowadays wants credit for "appearing to be a good human being or organization"..

I'm not sure if any of you heard this, they've been keeping it pretty quiet, but MLB now has their first FEMALE General Manager. Between this, the all-black refs, and Trump losing, I'm pretty sure that global warming was just reversed and we've gone back in time and ended slavery in 1787. I'm proud to be an American, and God bless our troops.

Black people?  No, I think they only have sonar.  At least that's what Trump (the poster, not the ex-President) tells me.

I was watching the Tampa Bay/New Orleans Sunday Night Football game a couple of weeks back. On the starting defense alone, for both teams (all 22 players), there were 20 black guys and two white guys.

So, I'm not even sure what the point of this all is. Is there a race issue in the NFL? It seems there's a very fair percentage of black players, but now we're worried about too many white refs?

Just let it evolve organically. Hire the best people.

That last line is what it should be everywhere for every job.

But we live in a time where if a Black woman, an Asian woman and a Caucasian woman apply for the same exact position even if the Caucasian woman has the best credentials shes not getting hired. 
Same goes for men. 
It's a dark day for the NFL. Just a little off color humor.

Just another sign that if you have white kids they're already growing up in a country in which they're a despised minority. And no court manned by vibrants is going to repeal Jim Snow.

We're not supposed to have an opinion on this other than clap and cheer.

I don't know if either one of you are serious, but it's kinda true. If you're white these days, you're automatically judged as being inherently racist. And if you're born into this world Caucasian, you're pretty much considered a spawn of Satan by the majority of blacks. It's the old "white man is the devil" philosophy. Even if you're white and haven't done shit to anyone of color, you're still automatically made to feel guilty based on the sins of others.

Au contraire, I'm in the minority of whites who are willing to accept what's going on and deal with it, unlike the normies who can't overcome the cultural programming that prompts them to shut down or run the other way when the subject of race comes up.
