Black College Football Coaches

John at Discriminations hits the nail on the head, as he so often does, regarding the hiring of black football coaches:

The Chronicle of Higher Education reports this morning that black college football coaches are increasing the pressure to hire more ... black college football coaches...

What the black coaches’ complaint asks us to believe is that colleges that eagerly lower their standards in order to give preferential admissions to black students and hiring preferences to black faculty and that energetically recruit the best college athletes, a “disproportionate” percentage of them black, refuse to hire the best qualified coaches because of racial bias. Presumably they care about excluding potentially winning black coaches more than they do about winning games.
Kinda hard to argue with such logic.
