Whitlock on diversity

Jason Whitlock writes an interesting column on who's responsible for the lack of diversity in newspaper sports sections in today's Kansas City Star. He says that would-be minority sports writers have to shoulder part of the blame.

As you'd expect, this prompted a thread and debate on the board, and a good point was made: Just because a prominent black sportswriter says that the lack of diversity isn't all newspapers' fault, that doesn't mean they should assume they can be comfortable with their makeup. There has to be a strong commitment to diversity from all sides.
