Re: MLB looking into lack of African-American players
The drop from a high of 20%-27% to the current 8% (approx) is alarming, and I don't really have a problem with it being "seriously looked into." It's not nearly as popular of a sport as it used to be in the AA community, but why exactly?
Any brand/business takes losing such a large portion of a demographic over time seriously, especially when so many of their greatest players over time have been black. They investigate it, hire people to improve it.
It's not as if a racial quota is being implemented, but I sense that is where fearful folks go to immediately, without taking the issue more seriously.
