    Former NFL assistant coach claims he wasnít the right minority

    https://twitter.com/nypost/status/13...006015494?s=20

    During the interview for an HC job the interviewer said he wasnít the right minority. Heís Asian American but instead of looking at someoneís job qualifications we are basing it on race?

    Just to clarify, the assistant coach didnít say he wasnít the right minority, the interviewer said he wasnít the right minority, which is much worse.

    In general, the NFL has a a problem with hiding minorities of any kind to GM or HC positions.

    I donít doubt this story happened. Except for no one on the team would say this out loud. They might thing it, they might somehow imply it, but nobody would be dumb enough to say this out loud.

    Sounds ****ed up. If he was black and said thatís why he got overlooked would you would say he was probably using the race card bc he didnít get what he wanted?

    It is funny seeing people (not necessarily Brewers) take this story at face value when if it were a black coach who claimed an interviewer said they werenít hired because of their race, they wouldnít believe it without further proof.

    Brewers can get emotional lol but heís never stuck me as a racist. I kind of regret the way I asked. Iím curious what context he sees this story in. Maybe he just thought it was interesting. I asked bc there has been some weird posts by other conservative posters about Asian and racism recently.

    I saw this on Twitter (sports center tweeted it out) and thought it would be interesting to see how many people here agree with NFL policy about interviewing so many minorities etc

    Thought it would be a good topic to discuss

    You referring to the posters pretending to care so much about Asians, solely because they think it gives them a reason to drag black people through the mud?

    Does not really matter if they interview them if they never have any intentions of hiring them. Just interviewing someone to satisfy a rule is stupid.

    The Rooney rule says nfl teams have to interview at least one minority candidate when looking for an GM or head coach

    ďAdopted in 2003, the Rooney Rule is an NFL policy requiring every team with a head coaching vacancy to interview at least one or more diverse candidates. In 2009, the Rooney Rule was expanded to include general manager jobs and equivalent front office positions.Ē

    Yes i am fully aware of the rule, but it does nothing other than make them interview at least 1 person of color before hiring their next HC or Gm. it does not really solve any problems.
