I like how white folks go crazy when something like this comes up.

I think everyone should get upset about this. Besides the double standard, aren't we supposed to be a color-blind society?

I don't have time to get sucked into this conversation, but I'm sure I will anyway. I find cries of reverse racism to be among the silliest of the silly. That aside, any criticism of the Rooney Rule is ridiculous. It has been a resounding success by any metric, save possibly the always fun "they took our jobs!" complaint.

Haha :-D

To be honest if someone called me whitey or cracker or something I'd think it was insanely hilarious and wouldn't be offended in the slightest.

How is that not racist, could they say are the Bulls too Black?
Seriously speaking, why would these even be a discussion?
Why point out that there are white people on a basketball team?

Its like the Rudy rule in the NFL, if you dont interview a black candidate you get in trouble.
But BAM the Buccaneers hire Raheem Morris, without interviewing a white candidate.
Do you see the NAAWP up in arms? No.

I just think its sad it comes to this, and why does it even have to be asked?


If you are white, you are racist to think this racist. If you are not white, I agree.

Racism knows no color. Whites, Blacks, Hispanics, Asians... any demographic can be - and has been - a victim of discrimination. I've seen victims from every demographic, every walk of life, every tax bracket. There is no such thing as "reverse" discrimination - it's all just discrimination, no matter what color skin you have, your age, your gender, your race, national origin, etc.
