IlGreven: 8 inches: Gubbo: 8 inches: The article mentions that 70-75% of the players are black and yet they still face discrimination.  I'm not sure the author understands how discrimination works.

I suspect it's more likely that you don't know how it works.

Why?   Because I understand statistics?

Math is hard!

Google Apartheid, you dolt.


Google Whataboutism, you sweet summer child.

75% black and 25% white.  I'd think the white career would be statistically longer because the vast majority are starters.  There is a bunch of bench players in the 75%.

90% of South Africans were black.  That didn't help them.
