    Watching the first game of the new XFL football league, it is apparent that black players are far more represented than the proportion of blacks in America.

    Does the XFL utilize Affirmative Action discrimination in hiring ? Why so many blacks (about 90%), as opposed to players of other races ?

    Could someone from the XFL, knowledgeable about hiring, tell us if the XFL has prospective players submitting Affirmative Action questionnaires ?

    Before anyone chimes in about the NFL, yes, one could question their hiring practices too.

    That wasn't the question, Mr Dodge.

    And BTW, who's "we" ? You work for the XFL ?

    Well...sports are the last...truly egalitarian arena. Though the field has been muddied of late with the introduction of mentally ill men (Chicks with Dicks) into female athletics, it still remains a very much merit based pursuit.
    The North American Pavement Ape was chosen many centuries ago and brought to this continent for physical purposes. Thus it is at a distinct advantage. This is a merit system. Embrace it.

    Not too many whites in the NBA.

    I might if you were right. Problem with your theory is, the top NFL team of the past 6 years (3 super bowl wins) is the New England Patriots, who has more whites than any other team.

    Note also, in the XFL game I'm watching, it's the few white guys who have been scoring the touchdowns

    Oh...so the Patriots are 75% black instead of 95%...what an amazing argument.
