CA Black Caucus to NFL: Let's Talk

To the editor: We, the members of the California Legislative Black Caucus, want to directly address NFL commissioner Roger Goodell to express our outrage over the claims of discrimination made by fired Miami Dolphins coach Brian Flores.

California employment law is clear: Race, gender, identity and national origin are among the protected classes that cannot serve as the basis of discrimination. The allegation that the NFL engages in such unlawful and discriminatory practices is deeply troubling. Although California welcomes the Super Bowl to Inglewood, we must speak out against discrimination.
