ESPN Personality Says ‘White People’ Are the NFL’s Problem

Andrew Holleran, The Spun, February 3, 2022

ESPN and HBO personality Bomani Jones said bluntly that “white people” are the NFL’s problem following the Brian Flores lawsuit news.

Jones, who is Black, appeared the Dan Le Batard Show with Stugotz earlier this week to discuss Flores’ lawsuit against the NFL.

Flores, who was fired by the Dolphins after the 2021 season, is suing the NFL, alleging racism in its hiring process. {snip}


“I just don’t know why people try to make this far more complex than it is,” Jones told Le Batard. “What’s the problem? White people.”

Jones added that it’s not every single white person that is the problem, but white people are the ones making these decisions.

“Who are the ones that are making these decisions? White people. Who are the ones that won’t change their decision making? White people. Who are the ones that only do anything in a different way when it comes these matters at the threat of litigation? White people,” said Jones.
