which is to say, where growth is required no matter what, how many untapped male consumers are there in sports? #bwb4

there's also the inescapable reality that masculinity is commodified in sports. this is an interesting subject. #bwb4

#BWB4: J Hill: "Why is your staff so white?" AJ Daulerio: "It's a white industry." (Black & White Managing eds. around the nation applaud).

J Hill: "Why is your staff so white?" AJ Daulerio: "It's a white industry." You and yours, @ajdaulerio, will NEVER hire strong Black voices

J Hill: "Why is your staff so white?" @ajdaulerio: "It's a white industry." When an ESPN writer asks "indy" media this we KNOW what ails us.

@bomani_jones While I do agree with the overall theme of that piece, it's important to keep in mind that only 13% of the US' population...

josh @HoopPlusTheHarm

@bomani_jones ...is black. The proportion isn't perfect, but it's still close to the US'.

that's barely relevant RT @HoopPlusTheHarm: it's important to keep in mind that only 13% of the US' population...
