Regardless if you’re interested in sports or not, this issue reflects a larger idea that racial integration in sports – with all its different viewpoints and controversies – is something we must all be conscience of.  I think the “Rooney Rule” appears to undermine the process of integrating more racial diversity into the NFL.  In many instances, ESPN will break a story of a coach hiring in the NFL and later note that the decision is pending a minority candidate interview.  In fact, if I was a minority candidate, I would feel insulted by the process and would feel inclined to refuse to be a part of a flawed system that functions in order to fulfill a quota.  The NFL, as a league, tends to be very diverse with respect to its players.  However, I believe if the league wants to integrate more black coaches, for whatever reasons, it should take a different approach that does not exploit black head coach candidates.
