NFL talking about giving draft pics to teams that hire black head coaches. 

 

there are 32 NFL teams, 5 of which are headed by black head coaches. rounded up that's 16%, rounded down its 15%.

 

Blacks make up 12.3% of the population. 

 

so what's the problem they are trying to fix?

PR stunt.  Trying to make the league look more diverse with a carrot and stick.  It makes no sense really.  If you hire a bad coach, black or white, how many draft picks are needed to make up for that?  Your math is right.  There is no problem unless they are trying to base things on the % of Black player vs Black coaches.  It's really just all silly.

Roger Goodell should step down and they should name a Black man or woman as the new Commissioner.  I nominate Condoleeza Rice  !

Maybe it should represent the player base. 

Maybe the best man, be it player or coach should get the job.  Skin color shouldn't matter IMO.

this really has nothing to do with the sport of football. 

 

should GE's managers be hired based on the predominant race of the departments employees?

Condoleeza Rice is nice but I prefer a roni
