It's funny....these bowl games??? Lotsa black players, and not so many black fans

In the stands. Looks like all white, and I bet alumni. Or is it just me??

If people don't want to come out to the ball park, nobody's gonna stop 'em.

3. You could say the same thing about many of the current student body

 

compared to the football team.

We as a society need to be better at both getting minority students into college, but also graduating.

My undergrad (University of Colorado) is about 2% black undergrads. Grad school (Boston College) has about 4%.

4. It's the same thing at regular season games and the same at the professional level

in all sports (hockey and golf excluded since there are very few minorities playing those sports).
