Merit > Skin Color
Just to play devil's advocate, I would think that Lovie Smith has more merit than most since he's actually taken a team to the Superbowl.

So did Ken Whisenhunt.  Do race baitors think he wasn't hired by another team as a HC because he was white?

the Bucs should make a move to make the NFL happy then.  Fire white boy Schiano and hire Lovie.    I'd love that move.

A league who's employee base is 95% black is clearly racist . Something must be done.

What is your point? I was wrong? Ok. You win. I was wrong.

It could be 100% black and they would still complain about racism in some way.

Who's " they "?

Black people who know nothing about the way life was during the Jim crow laws and the follow up with plessy vs Ferguson that locked Jim crow in for the following fifty years. Not to mention, people like sharpton or Jackson who use it for political gains (which is downright sickening).

Sometimes I think that MLK's dream has become abused by(all) people who want money or power. People are supposed to be ...people. not black, not white, not Asian, etc. Heck the division of races was the same as it is now... to make money for someone.

Not every white person was a slave owner, just like every black person wasn't a slave. The past is behind us and can never come back. There is no reason to have ANY laws in place anywhere that suggest that because of their color, they should get more, or less of a shot in anything.

And before anyone says anything to me for what I just said.. my whole family played a historic part in the Underground railroad, my best friend is black (was best man at my wedding and godfather of my children). Not to mention, I've literally paid for City kids(which just happen to be African American) to go to the fair, show animals(such as horses and cows mostly) in 4-H, which they never would have experianced otherwise. So please, save the "you're racist" talk for someone that needs it. Thanks.


Naismith was right about Revis. Everyone else is a dummy.

Obama's fault.

Owners said "we don't want OUR LEAGUE to be like his League..."

The common belief is that the majority of owners are rich, old white guys that are not open to racial progress and only satisfy the Rooney Rule as an obligatory nuisance.  My question is that if that is the belief then who can explain Shahid Khan hiring a white head coach over all of the other qualified minorities?  I think this helps to prove that the right guy is going to be hired regardless of race and based on his experience and credentials over all else.

Who Cares? one off-season of no black hires and it's racist.

Is there any other country in the world that has rules and laws in place that give advantages to certain races over others?

Of course.

Give one specific example.   I don't believe it.
