Racial Equality in Professional Sports (15% rule)

0 have signed. Let’s get to 7,500!


On August 19th, 2020, Golden State Warriors, SF Giants, A's, 49ers, Earthquakes, Oakland Roots, and SJ Sharks declared their support for Prop 16.  https://www.49ers.com/news/49ers-bay-area-unite-yes-on-prop-16

What is Prop. 16? It repeals Prop. 209, passed by voters in 1996. Here is the content of prop. 209: "The state shall not discriminate against, or grant preferential treatment to, any individual or group on the basis of race, sex, color, ethnicity, or national origin in the operation of public employment, public education, or public contracting."

We expect these pro sport teams to comply with racial "diversity" quota intended by Prop.16. We also know that Asian Americans are the overwhelmingly Under Represented Minority (URM) in pro sports (0.2% in NBA, 1.9% in NFL).

Therefore, we (the undersigned),

DEMAND that Warriors, Giants, A's, SF 49ers, Earthquakes, Oakland Roots, and SJ Sharks allocate 15% roster spots for Asian Americans (California Asian population) starting in 2020-2021 season, and guarantee no less than 15% of total game time.

DEMAND 15% in professional sport coaching stuff, management, and even ownership. Do what you preach. Stop the hypocrisy!
