    The Facts

    • President Biden stated that the NFL haven't lived up to the standard they committed to in hiring more Black and minority head coaches.

    • Roughly 70% of the NFL's players are people of color, but there are only five head coaches of color and no Black team owners.


    The Spin

    Left narrative

    Not only must the disparity in representation be addressed, Flores' accusations paint a picture of modern day slavery and his testimony makes clear that current provisions for diversity are ineffective.

    Right narrative

    The NFL is doing its best to revise its hiring process to improve representation. Flores (only recently sacked from his position of three years) is making legally unsubstantiated claims.
