    I was just looking at an old high school yearbook of mine (1969) and could not help but notice the team was mostly white with some above average players. We intergrated two years before and had a large number of blacks attending school. I am a big follower of our team and could not help but notice the team went from majority white to almost completely black in a span of about 15 years.
    I being the racist i am,asked a white parent who had a son on the team.What the heck was going on with the white kids?He told me the coaches (white head coach) did'nt let the whites try out for the positions they played on jvs.He told them and the parents that they did not have the skills to play the skilled positions in high school.
    He then said most of the white parents would rather their kids playing another sport in hope of getting some kind of scolarship aid,such as soccer, baseball or swimming.
    I told him they would have to prove to me my son did'nt have the skills before they moved him to another position.He then said they did'nt want the black parents to think they were racist,so they just went along to get along.That is the way football is being playing football in N.C.

    They do, it's the college level that filters out the white athletes. Look at the best high school teams of any given state and they're usually majority white. Then look how many of these players actually get major scholarship offers.

    This will probably start to change though, concussions are going make whites even more of a minority in football.

    It depends on where you are. Here in the Midwest, most teams are majority white, and virtually all of the championship teams certainly are. Nevertheless, the racial "slotting" still happens. A black kid will automatically have their choice of position, and it's theirs to lose.

    In places with higher percentages of black populations, like the area in N.C. where booth is writing from, the brainwashing is complete. Black = fast, dynamic, explosive, yada yada yada, while white = slow, can't jump, stiff, etc. Just ask Carolina Speed.

    The system is so rigged against white kids it's almost unbelievable.

    booth, thanks for posting and welcome to Caste Football. FootballDad is right. The first time I ever spent time in the Midwest, football fans and one coach asked me what it was like being a football fan from SEC country. I asked them what they meant and they mentioned the speed of the players/game being faster, athleticism, etc. I told them there wasn't much difference at all, except that the fundamentals of the game were almost gone. Of course I got puzzled looks from people, but the coaches are no different. This mistaken belief they have (the big lie of black athletic supremacy) influences the way they coach and thus influences countless White athletes all over the country.

    Once the coach gets his zoo the way he wants it, would you want to play? I wouldn't. The sorting starts at the middle school level and even below that. The black kids are older for their grade on average, and mature faster. Most football coaches are stupid. They think that these physically grown "men" at age 15 still have unlimited "upside".

    A white team can win 35-6, but the only thing the coaches will really remember was that one kickoff return the blacks made against them (extra point no good). They will think how it would be great to have such an athletic return man on their team, and will probably spend the next week telling their white players how they don't have the athleticism to do x, y or z, all the while dreaming about how they could mentor a young ghettoite into greatness like in a movie.

    That's how it really is. Football coaches are some of the dumbest people you will ever trust with your child.

    Guys you're right on the money. I see it here in Texas just as y'all described. For the last several years the teams that win state are either 100% - 90% white. Austin Lake Travis case in point. Won state championship 5 times straight. (Maybe 6? I can't recall) They were awesome! Maybe 1 minority who didn't contribute. South Lake Carroll. Numerous state championship with very few if any minorities. I could go on and on. But from these powerhouses very few show up on the college stage. Even fewer make the pros. Matt Stafford from all white Dallas Highland Park one exception.
    Back to the original question....
    I think many whites have other goals in life besides having their bodies abused and their time monopolized by practice, games etc.
    Whites are more career and job focused. They wanna have a regular life.
    Whereas blacks on the other hand....sports is the one hope they think they have of achieving monetary success.
    And maybe these 'stupid coaches' realize that the white kid doesn't have his heart set on football for life. And maybe the caste system has taken their heart out of it. Just my opinion.

    Whites are playing at the high school level - check out the class of 2016 thread to see how many white guys are not getting recruited. Their are plenty of skill position guys that excel in high school only to be flat out ignored by all the division 1 colleges.

    I've heard this explanation before many times and I don't buy it for a second. High level collegiate and professional athletes are treated like gods in the USA. The life of an NBA, NFL, MLB, SEC football player, etc is what a lot of people would consider to be heaven on earth, just complete paradise. Now if presented with the option of being a professional athlete or being an accountant or IT specialist there is no sane White man who would not choose to be a pro athlete. It doesn't matter how good your grades are, it's a no brainer. Becoming a professional athlete is going to give you considerably more happiness in life than becoming some white collar professional making 60k a year. You don't think White kids want to drive Ferrari's, live in mansions, and date super models ? That's why I always scoff at the notion that there are more blacks in pro and college sports because they just want it more. Yeah, right, the laziest race in the history of the world is just out-working everybody else.

    You are asking me to believe that the coaches think the white kids are lacking in both athleticism and desire? Then how do these white high school teams ever win? Is that your experience in dealing with kids? The white kids aren't "blue collar" enough? Don't "bring their lunch pail every day"? Aren't "gym rats"? Those are the only compliments that the coaches will ever give white players.

    I'm sticking to calling the coaches stupid, without the quotation marks. Their minds have The Blind Side and Remember the Titans on a continuous loop, with themselves starring as Savior of the Dindus.

    Great post. White kids know that the odds are hugely stacked against them whether or not they are conscious of the Caste System, so they formulate a workable Plan B rather than the all or nothing approach so many blacks take.

    Thanks Don. It's true most White kids have solid plan B's while most black kids don't but I don't think that makes any difference in terms of who succeeds in becoming a pro athlete and who doesn't. The most important step to making it to the NBA or the NFL is to first get a D1 scholarship. If that doesn't happen then you probably won't make it, so let's start there.

    You've got a 16 year old white kid in the Atlanta suburbs. He's 5'11, 195 lbs, he runs a 4.4, and his dream is to play rb at Georgia and then go to the NFL. His plan B is to go to Georgia Tech and major in mechanical engineering. But as of right now he's still in high school and there's nothing he can really do in regards to working on plan B that would take away from him working on plan A. High school wasn't that long ago for me , it was a joke as far as academics go. As long as you have a reasonable amount of intelligence and you put forth a little bit of effort you'll get good grades and get accepted into a good college. So the White kid I'm talking about just has to go to class and pay attention and do 45 minutes of homework each night and he'll get accepted to the college he wants. That still leaves him with more than enough time to work on football. And I bet he's still working a lot harder on getting a D1 scholarship than some black kid who has no plan B.

    We got one thing going for us the caste system takes a lot of energy to prop up, stupidity being expensive to maintain. But I'll say it again we are not that far from wrecking the caste system's reputation and its legitimacy, it loses that then it is toast. Somewhere there is a loose thread in the caste system and if we pull it the whole thing will start to unravel. My guess is the recruiting agencies, I'll bet they are flush with cash kickbacks and other racketeering schemes.

    What i can't understand if blacks are that much better in sports,why are the football games I attend are so darn sorry. Most of the games I go to last forever and it is one flag after another after ever play.Players coming off the field pointing and dancing like they just won the lottery.I know it makes me sick seeing players acting like idots after making one play all game long.
