NFL to propose incentives to hire minorities

Tickets Find deals on 49ers games ?
As NFL GM's or head coaches. What a crock of BS. It's a slap in the face to minorities and its a slap in the face to the entire league.

Idk if that's the answer, but something needs to change. A league that's mostly black players, barely has any black GMs or HCs? Doesn't make sense
Belicheat is gonna get DNA test saying he has some African ancestry
Who can we hire to get the first overall pick?

No reason to earn your way into a job.
Its crazy those factors could alter your draft status. Just plain stupid
I'm a minority and this is the stupidest things. Ok moving a team to London is probably dumber but this is about on pAr
When does pandering go to far?

Sure. Can't say there isn't a discrepancy. But when hiring someone or considering someone for a job, skin color should not be a factor. With this they are making it a factor. It makes people look at someone's race when looking at candidates and it might lead to adding people to the list just because they're a minority, not because of their value.
It's the same thing with the laws that say a certain amount of the people in top jobs (board members) have to be women. If you have a short list of 10 people which you consider the best and they happen to be men, you have to take 2 out and put women instead, despite being potentially less qualified. Lo and behold, that's discrimination against men.

Good intent, bad strategy.

huh???

if there were good asian RBs out there, they would be signed.

the point is, majority of NFL players are black, and there are very few HCs and GMs that are black. not sure wtf this has to do with Asian RBs.
