If backs make up 13% should they make up more than 13% of the hires?
Blacks are 50% of the sport in America in major DI and at the highest levels of the sport for several generations. At the NCAA Championships and USATF Nationals it's mostly black. At the USATF and AAU Jr. Olympic nationals it's about 80% black. The coaches should reflect that.
OR maybe the fact that theres so many white coaches involved in track producing 50-80 pct black athletes at ncaa and usatf shows that white coaches are working well with black athletes. Why change that and risk that the numbers change? Seems like you want to take a chance that black athlete's numbers drop. Thats not nice...
Why would the number of black athletes drop? Blacks are the majority in the sport and have been for over 40 years. Many former black athletes are coaching at every level and black athletes are the dominate ones at every level. To assume that an increase of black college coaches would cause a decrease in blacks at the highest levels is absurd and borderline racist.
