The NFL is a league predominantly made up of non-white players, run by predominately white coaches and front office personnel.
Is the internet just another facet of this arbitrary color barrier?
I have been participating in fan forums and sports related blogs for several years now, and I can count on one hand the number of regular African American contributors who either identified themselves as such through their screen name or their commentary.
As a matter of fact, the number is two. HawkSista from the PI forum and O-Meezy from this very blog.
So in a nation where the majority of the population is a minority, where are all the black bloggers? I think it would be great to get the input and perspective from the African-American sports fans out there, especially on issues like Pacman Jones, Mike Vick and that video clip of Peyton Manning dancing.
Is it there some Caucasian predisposition to wasting your employer's work time conversing on the internet with anonymous people who share the same interests as you?
Are sports-blogs the modern day member's only country club or private fraternal organization?
Or is this just another case where I'm cluelessly tooling around in the suburbs and all the black bloggers are hanging out in at some super cool site in the city, with multi-color graphics, phat sounds and bitchin video feeds?
