Question for you about the NFL

The New York Times ran a piece about the NFL's hypocrisy after the Jon Gruden scandal and talked about Kaepernick and Eric Reid and more.

Here's a bit of it...

"Black players make up close to 70 percent of N.F.L. rosters, including most of the league’s biggest stars. Yet there are only five Black general managers of teams. There are no Black team owners with majority shares.

"And only three out of 32 head coaches are Black, despite eight head coach vacancies in the last hiring period.

"It’s 2021."

My question, and this is not trolling: What is the perfect, acceptable amount of NFL GMs, owners and coaches? Is there a specific number of Black leadership that makes everything acceptable.

Then what about Hispanics, Asians, women, etc?

Would I like to see more equality? Yes. I think it's beneficial and there should be more diversity. But media sometimes can be trolls. What specifically does each writer deem a passing grade for race, gender, sexuality, whatever?

I'm not smart enough to know. You?
