    Should the NFL do more to recruit non-Blacks as players?

    Currently the NFL consists of 70% Blacks as players. Should they be doing more to make their playership 'look like America'?

    No, it is as it is. But if we were doing the whole affirmative action thing, then yes.

    Racist discrimination hiring practices otherwise known as Affirmative Action is wrong no matter who is doing or who it is befitting.
    "A nation can survive its fools, and even the ambitious. But it cannot survive treason from within. An enemy at the gates is less formidable, for he is known and carries his banner openly. But the traitor moves amongst those within the gate freely, his sly whispers rustling through all the alleys, heard in the very halls of government itself. For the traitor appears not a traitor; he speaks in accents familiar to his victims, and he wears their face and their arguments, he appeals to the baseness that lies deep in the hearts of all men. He rots the soul of a nation, he works secretly and unknown in the night to undermine the pillars of the city, he infects the body politic so that it can no longer resist. A murder is less to fear"

    Cicero Marcus Tullius

    Hell no. That's absurd.

    Of course it is. But I wonder how many people who think the white boys have to step up their game are also supporters of that institution.

    That still doesn't address the disparity in racial composition. We need the NFL to be more representative of America. White people deserve the same chance as blacks to play professional football. Black men's inherent physical superiority affords them an unfair physical advantage over whites. This must be rectified.
