Inmate Central, where civil and family-friendly discourse about off-audio topics (other than religion and politics) is welcome.

Why do they make up a majority? Because there's no discrimination in (most) sports: it's

all about ability.

Regarding your point: you do know it always wasn't like that, right? You have heard of the Negro leagues? Jackie Robinson and his heroic struggles? The white SEC and how getting their butts whipped by Minnesota (my alma mater!) who had the terrific QB Sandy Stevens changed its racism?

And in entertainment: you have heard of "black minstrel shows" and "blackface?" And you do know that black stars are a VERY recent Hollywood dynamic?

Employment success is a function of many things, education primarily--- and a color-blind hiring process. African-Americans face hurdles that white folks don't--- though many equally poor whites have special challenges, too (their schools suck, as well). It's the percentages of poverty that make the difference. If you want to investigate how and why black folks have been challenged to reach the American dream, I can help you with that question, too. It's history.
