TDM Talks: The NFL and DEI

Articles Jan 21, 2022

A Statement by The Diversity Movement

Whether you watch football or not, you're probably aware that The National Football League has an extraordinary impact on American society and culture. The NFL generates hundreds of billions of dollars each year, from the restaurants where fans watch games to the merchandise they wear and advertising they watch. The common denominator is that this vast revenue is derived from all people, regardless of race, ethnicity, age, education, physical and mental ability, income, sexual orientation, occupation,or gender.

But, rather than set the tone for inclusion  and realize its role as a culture driver and global role model – particularly when an estimated 70% of its players are Black – the league faces yet another in a long line of controversies regarding its racially discriminatory practices.
