There will never, ever be an end to racism. Won't happen. It will always be there to some degree.

IMO When you force people to do things in favor of minorities it only helps breed racism.

It's a double edged sword.

If I was the person in charge of hiring a coach(college or NFL) I should have the right to interview whoever I wanted. I shouldn't be forced to interview someone b/c of the color of their skin but b/c of their ability to do the job.

[/ QUOTE ]

I agree. Which goes for any job.

However, there are still people who have power to give jobs that race is still an issue. Sports is no exception.

NFL teams do have the right to interview whoever they want. To my knowledge there is no limit to the number of interview candidates they can talk to.


[/ QUOTE ]

The point I was trying to make is if I had a specific person or 2 in mind for the job I should be able to interview them and only them. I shouldn't be forced into interviewing someone b/c of the color of their skin.

the Rooney rule does seem to be having a positive impact.

Let's not conflate causation with correlation. I'd love to see some evidence for the latter, but I don't think it's there.

it's sad (and a sign of the times) that you have to preface debates/issues with an "I am not racist" statement...If i didn't say that this thread would be full of flaming w/ comments about The_B being racist and hating black people

Maybe it's that a lot of assistants are lifers and that until 10-15 years ago there really was a color barrier. It takes time to even things out statistically.

[/ QUOTE ]

This is EXACTLY what they were saying 15-20 years ago.

Once you preface a statement with "I'm not a racist but", it's so painfully obvious to everyone that flaming becomes a waste of time.

What kind of questions do they ask in these interviews? Is there stupid [censored] like "what is your favorite color"?
