There's not a single white cornerback in the NFL. To me this is a bit racist, as it doesn't reflect society as a whole. The NFL, to be inclusive of all races, needs to do more to encourage more white athletes to become corners in the NFL. Otherwise it's just not fair or equal.

My issue is with their lack of inclusiveness of women. If the armed forces and fire departments must overlook the physical differences between the sexes, why doesn't the NFL?

Exactly. We need the NFL to be all inclusive, which at this point it isn't. It's a game for young, rich, mostly black dudes. I'd like to see commitment by team owners to change this dynamic.

Not a single Japanese person has ever played on an NFL team. This is obvious racism has to stop.

Yawn. Did we get tired of the "NBA isn't diverse" threads and move onto a different sport?

I'm sorry you aren't interested in creating an all inclusive America. I, however, recognize the plight of the white athlete and am working to correct it.

You sir/ma'am, are a racist.
