Sports Illustrated’s Peter King wants you to know that the 14 coaches and general managers hired this year in the NFL are all white.
@si_peterkingevery Obama cabinet member is white. Tell us specifically which NFL organization is racist. Or are you just throwing mud?

@jiggsporklerind doesn’t matter if they’re white, brown, purple, black or blue. NFL is always going to hire the best available.

I love @si_peterking needing to mention “14 coach/GM hires. All white”. Is it possible that maybe there were no qualified black coaches?

If they’re qualified, who cares? RT @si_peterking: Fourteen coach/GM hires. All white. Just for the record.

@si_peterking How many owners do you think said, “go get me the white guy?” Trying to make a story out of nothing.

I’m so tired of the ‘race card’ being used. It’s infuriating. RT @si_peterking: Fourteen coach/GM hires. All white. Just for the record.

To the media, hiring the best possible candidate does not occur. Instead, it must be motivated by hatred or racism.
