African American civil rights leaders often lambast professional sports leagues for not hiring more black coaches and, in the case of the NFL, quarterbacks to match their racial prevalence in the league, but somehow the most important positions in sports are often overlooked. The leadership of 80% of the major professional sports associations in America are held by a group that comprises only 2% of the population. Although non-gentile Americans are dramatically underrepresented as athletes and coaches, they dominate the leadership positions in these leagues.
Major League Soccer (MLS) Commissioner- Don Garber is non-gentile.
Major League Baseball (MLB) Comissioner- Allan “Bud” Selig is non-gentile.
National Hockey League (NHL) Commissioner- Gary Bettman is non-gentile. It should also be noted that the former NHL Commissioner Gilbert Stein was also a non-gentile lawyer.
National Basketball Association (NBA) Comissioner- David Stern is non-gentile and so is the Deputy Commissioner- Adam Silver and also the President of League Operations- Joel Litvin.
Of the five major sports organizations, there is only one token gentile sports commissioner, which is the National Football League’s (NFL) Roger Goodell. Not so surprisingly, his top two executives: NFL Executive VP-Eric Grabman and NFL Executive VP and general counsel Jeffrey Pash, are both non-gentile. It should also be noted that former NFL Commissioner Paul Tagliabue was non-gentile. At one point, all five commissioners were non-gentile.
On average, African Americans are far more likely to focus their career prospects on professional sports than other racial groups, so one would think that they would have an overrepresentation in the top spots of professional sports leagues rather than no representation at all. In professional sports, the players are selected based on skill, and skill is hard to discriminate against. As a result, some sporting leagues such as the NBA (80%) and NFL (70%) are predominately black. Considering that many of these black athletes graduate from top schools, and a select few also get the opportunity to coach, their experience should make them uniquely qualified for leadership positions in their respective leagues. After all, one need look no further than the popular T.V. show Undercover Boss to see some of the operational efficiencies that are overlooked when bosses are disconnected from the organizations they run. And who would be better connected to the operations of a sports league than a college-educated former player and/or coach?
Who, on the other hand, could be more out of touch than the current commissioners, who have little to no sports experience? NBA Commissioner David Stern’s experience consists of representing the league as a lawyer, which should hardly qualify one for a leadership role. Before the NBA, Vice Presidents Adam silver and Joel Litvin were also lawyers. NFL Vice President Jeffrey Pash is a lawyer who says his sports experience stopped at little league. NHL commissioner Gary Bettman was a lawyer with no real sports experience. NFL Vice President Eric Grabman is a former banker for Goldman Sachs. MLS Commissioner Don Garber worked in sports organizations like the NFL before being named as the commissioner of the league. MLB Commissioner Bud Selig was a “fan” and owner before becoming commissioner. NFL commissioner Roger Goodell, the sole gentile commissioner, is only one who even appears to have played sports. Goodell graduated with a degree in economics, which would seem to be much more useful for running a business than a law degree.
As a result of these sports leagues’ leaders almost uniformly consisting of lawyers with little to no connection to the leagues and players they represent, strikes and talks of strikes have plagued these organizations over the last few decades. Arguably the only thing that could break these organizations’ respective monopolies is a prolonged strike, but yet these out of touch lawyer/commissioners continue to bring their organizations to the brink of disaster. And the media is yet to challenge their credentials. This is especially shocking considering that the players are making large salaries, and many of the individual owners have seen their revenue increase and their investments gain value. Only a New York lawyer could cause a problem between two prospering business partners.
This unbelievable overrepresentation and discrimination in sports management does not end at the league leadership unfortunately. The top two sports agencies according to this ranking are Wasserman Media Group (Casey Wasserman) and Creative Artist Agency (Richard Lovett). Both are headed by non-gentiles. In addition, many other top sports management agencies like Excel Sports Management ( Jeff Schwartz) are headed by non-gentiles as well. Likewise with the sports organizations’ leadership, who better to represent an athlete than a former athlete who has relationships with the coaches and owners? Instead, non-gentiles lawyers with little to no experience in sports end up representing the athletes.
The lifeblood of the major sports organizations are their television contracts; and shockingly these television networks are actually more over-represented by non-gentiles than the sports organizations and agencies they work with.
Disney CEO (ESPN and ABC) Robert Iger is non-gentile.
ESPN and ABC Sports President George W. Bodenheimer is non-gentile.
FOX President Peter Chernin is non-gentile, and so is the Vice Chairmen of Fox Sports Ed Goren.
HBO Sports President Ken Hershman is non-gentile.
NBC Sports Group Chairman Mark Lazarus is non-gentile.
NBC Universal CEO Jeff Zucker is non-gentile.
Turner Sports Group President Daniel Levy is non-gentile.
This could go on all day, especially with the Vice Presidents, who are similarly non-gentile. Again, one would think that some of the executives dealing with sports would be African Americans, who comprise the majority of the athletes, or just gentiles in general, who comprise 98% of the population, but that does not seem to be the case.
These non-gentile executives hire non-gentile sportscasters in a ridiculously overrepresented rate to their percentage of the population. Take for example: Chris Berman, Marv Albert, Hank Goldberg, Doug Gottlieb, Mike Greenberg, Mel Allen, Len Berman, Bonnie Bernstein, Steve Bunin, Linda Cohn, Roy Firestone, Tony Kornheiser, Steve Levy, Jim Rome, and the list goes on….
The odds of this kind of domination of leadership positions, sports divisions of television networks, sports agencies, and sports telecasters being coincidence, given that non-gentiles comprise only 2% of the American population, are so infinitesimal that it can not be explained other than tribalism and racism.
To prove this is a pattern rather than an aberration, one needs look no further than the starkly similar overrepresentation of non-gentiles in the Ivy League. As Kevin McDonald, a California State University professor, concluded, “These data strongly suggest that Jewish overrepresentation at elite universities has nothing to do with IQ but with discrimination against non-Jewish White Americans….It would be interesting to see the dynamics of the admissions process. How many admissions officers are Jewish? And, whether or not they are Jewish,what pressures are they under to admit Jewish students?” To answer his questions, nearly 80% of the people in the top administrative positions are either non-gentile or married to non-gentiles and they admit non-gentile students at a 7-15 times greater rate than African Americans and other gentiles. This link provides the names and tittles of the Ivy League administrators to prove this point.
Unfortunately, this trend of non-gentile overrepresentation also extends to finance, general media, the Supreme Court, government appointments, and financial contributions. As non-gentile controlled Ivy League universities and media outlets constantly declare, all races have equal intelligence and work ethics, so how can this kind of overrepresentation be explained by anything but tribalism and nepotism?
After reading this article, one will understand that there is a strong underlying current of racism in the non-gentile community against African Americans and gentiles in general. To illustrate this point, the leader of the Israeli Sephardic community and founder of the Shas party Rabbi Ovadia Yosef stated in 2010 that the sole purpose of non-Jews was to serve Jews. Yosef, a man who is also influential among American non-gentiles, said in a 2010 television interview that “gentiles need to die…goyim have no place in this world.” In the same year, 50 state-paid rabbis signed a letter instructing non-gentiles not to sell or rent houses to Arabs. The letter was then endorsed by another 250 non-gentile religious figures. In another example, a group of Israeli Rabbis headed by Dov Lior issued a religious edict saying, “a thousand non-Jewish lives are not worth a Jew’s fingernail.”It stands to wonder whether qualified African American gentile applicants are being turned down for the leadership positions in professional sports organizations because of this racism?
In many cases, it is customary for former players and coaches to take executive positions in sports organizations when they retire, but in the case of the top spots it is clearly “No Gentiles Allowed.” So if it is not due to racism, then why is there a glass ceiling in professionals sports for everyone but non-gentile lawyers? How does David Stern justify only hiring non-gentile lawyers as his subordinates? It would be an incredible coincidence if Stern just happened to hire two other non-gentiles considering that they only comprise a tiny fraction of the athletic population. Do non-gentile managers get better contracts from T.V. stations than gentile managers? Do athletes with non-gentile agents get off lighter for various infractions? Do non-gentile businesses get preferential treatment at sporting events? For example, a non-gentile named Larry Levy established Levy Restaurants, which operates restaurants at dozens of major sporting venues. The valuable contracts Levy was able to secure from non-gentile sports managers has translated into a half a billion dollar a year business.
Many Americans may view this tribalism as acceptable, but imagine if this situation involved white gentile sports commissioners only giving jobs to other white gentile managers. Or if it entailed white gentile T.V. managers hiring white sportscasters at a 10 times greater rate than their percentage of the population. Or if white Ivy League administrators accepted white students at a 7-15 greater rate than their percentage of the population. Or if financial firms run by white gentiles hired white gentiles at greatly disproportionate rates. Or imagine what would happen if Arab Americans were giving 50% of all financial contributions to American politicians and were using those contributions to coerce the US government to give tens of billions of dollars of aid to Syria, while non-gentile Americans at home were starving. These things would all cause a massive outcry, but because it is non-gentiles perpetrators who control almost the entirety of the media, there is hardly a word about it. Racism is racism, and it must be rooted out wherever it lies.
