discussion on the coverage of women's sports at #bwb4. surprised no ones mentioning this in the context of the corporate need for growth.
Bomani Jones @bomani_jones
which is to say, where growth is required no matter what, how many untapped male consumers are there in sports? #bwb4
Bomani Jones @bomani_jones
there's also the inescapable reality that masculinity is commodified in sports. this is an interesting subject. #bwb4
Bomani Jones @bomani_jones
Standing here with @ajdaulerio. Told him to keep his eyes up. He is, after all, Dr #meatpeeper. #bwb4
Jemele Hill @jemelehill
Terrific panel this morning w/ @GoonSquadSarah @mheuter @TinaCervasio @janesports. Glad I finally told the world I'm black. #BWB4
Bomani Jones @bomani_jones
more walls to go, tho “@PUNTE: Biggest surprise today: so many women here. Great to see that gender wall starting to crumble here. #bwb4

Roy Burton @TheBSLine
Agreed. #BWB5 needs a panel on race/blogging. “@OhThatMeg: Highlight of #BWB4? @jemelehill calling out @AJDaulerio on diversity. #Burn
Meg Berman @OhThatMeg
99% sure there should be a reality show starring @jemelehill @AJDaulerio & @stoolpresidente. Highest. Ratings. Ever. #BWB4
Jemele Hill @jemelehill
Co-sign. I'd love to see blogs develop a relationship w/ NABJ STF #BWB4 RT @TheBSLine: Agreed. #BWB5 needs a panel on race/blogging.

Jemele Hill @jemelehill
@TheBSLine In general, but worse in new media bcuz they dont have the structure of old media.

#BWB4: J Hill: "Why is your staff so white?" AJ Daulerio: "It's a white industry." (Black & White Managing eds. around the nation applaud).
D.K. Wilson @dkwilsonisland
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
D.K. Wilson @dkwilsonisland
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'.
Bomani Jones @bomani_jones
that's barely relevant RT @HoopPlusTheHarm: it's important to keep in mind that only 13% of the US' population...
