Blacks Represent 70 Percent Of NFL Players, Fan Base 83 Percent White 

Post#1 » by RealGM Wiretap » Tue Aug 30, 2016 8:30 pm

Seventy percent of African-American men comprise NFL rosters despite representing only six percent of the United States' population.

While the majority of NFL players are black, the NFL fan base is 83 percent white and 64 percent male.

The NFL has no African-Americans who are a majority owner of a team and no African-American CEOs or Presidents.

Colin Kaepernick has received criticism from many of his fellow NFL players and fans for his protest of the treatment of people of color in the United States by not standing for the national anthem.
