Charles Barkley Mocks the NFL’s Lack of Coaching Diversity: ‘We Got a Better Chance of Getting a Black Woman’ on SCOTUS
Thursday night, on TNT’s Inside the NBA, Charles Barkley roasted the NFL for its glaring lack of diversity among the league’s head coaches.
Currently, the NFL has just one Black head coach, with only three openings left to fill among the league’s 32 teams. The lack of diversity was further highlighted this week when former Miami Dolphins head coach Brian Flores hit the NFL with a lawsuit alleging racial discrimination inside its hiring process.
“Never in my WILDEST dreams,” Barkley began to tell his co-hosts Shaquille O’Neal, Kenny Smith and Ernie Johnson. “Did you know that we got a better chance of getting a Black woman on the Supreme Court than we do having a Black NFL head coach right now.”
