That is the problem. Goodell should have thought of adding another Black woman in this matter. If Goodell had appointed all Black women, I would bet a similar response of, “Hey, wait a minute…” from non Blacks.
If I go to a Chinese restaurant, I might smile at the site of a Black waiter but I would be more impressed if he/she spoke Chinese. However, to expect to see a Black person as an employee in a Chinese restaurant is not realistic. Don’t get me wrong, I get great soul food from a San Francisco restaurant owned by Asians.
On the other hand, being blind to color depreciates the beauty of the various races, not to mention also a cop out.
If the NFL had thought of diversity, it would not have selected a place like San Francisco to host the 2016 Super Bowl. San Francisco has been called “The most liberal city in America” but its treatment of its own Black community is a long and shameful big secret. In the last ten years along, more than 12,000 blacks have moved out due to discrimination and marginalization. While many claim economics have driven Blacks out, others retort, if you cannot get hired, or you can only go so high at your job as a Black person of course that will affect your economics.
