The Journal of Steffanie Rivers: In the NFL Winning is What Matters – Unless You’re A Black Man

*NFL coaching positions are coveted spots. Being a coach on a winning team should positively affect one’s career.

After all, in professional sports it’s winning that matters, right? But if you’re a Black man there’s more to the equation. If you’re a White man there might not be an equation.

It’s just another example that nothing has changed except the date on the calendar. Click the video above for more details.
