Leonardfan, if history is any guide, you will be proven to be correct. I think this is a very important topic, particularly for lurkers to know about. The fact that virtually the same percentage (74% to 78%) of blacks and a small group of fat Polynesians are drafted year-to-year, for almost two decades, is statistically impossible (as bigunreal notes) in a nation where blacks comprise a bit over 12% of the population. Also, within that 12%, there is a ton of dysfunction, meaning a significant number of younger black males are ensnared in criminal justice system or victims of urban violence well before they even leave high school and can never be drafted. Yet, somehow, someway, things never change, even if the black talent pool dwindles a bit. Why? Below are two great, partial posts from bigunreal from 2011 and 2012, respectively. Can anyone say anything has changed between the 2014 NFL Draft and the 2018 NFL Draft to prove bigunreal or any of us wrong, in regards to showing how the powers-that-be rig the draft process to make sure only about 53 to 59 whites (excluding kickers and punters) are drafted year after year? Finally, if some intrepid reporters over at ESPN really want to do some investigative reporting for Bob Ley's Outside the Lines, they might want to look into the topic we've been discussing in this thread the last seven years. How about just once, instead of doing the same trite reports they've done a million times over the last 30 years: Why aren't there more black head coaches in the NFL? Why are African-American's disappearing from baseball? Is the name Redskins racist? Blah, blah, blah, who cares anymore?
