NFL vows to stop 'race norming' to compensate brain injuries | DW News



In 2013, the NFL agreed to pay 865-million dollars in compensation and medical fees to former players, whose on-field concussions had caused brain injuries and cognitive disorders like dementia.
But several Black former players received nothing – despite their injuries. Turns out this is because of something called “race norming,” which assumes that the average black player has a lower level of cognitive function than white players. The effect of this is that, even though the vast majority of NFL retirees are black, black players have to demonstrate a greater level of damage than white players to get the same payout – and many end up with nothing. This week, the NFL promised to stop using race norming and to review the cases of Black players who feel they have been unfairly discriminated against.

  1. It sounds like something from either the eighteenth century or from The Onion. I can't believe a supposedly democratic country still has something like that.

  2. They do something simmilar with women

    I remember seeing a documentary once about female football in bikinis, the organization makes bank, and the players are left without any medical
    it was a while ago, so i'm not sure on the specifics, but i remember being appalled.

  3. lol he is always so neutral, calm and level headed reporting but this time i felt from his word choice he actually was angry yet he continued talking in such a calm voice
    not surpriced about this happening in USA…. dont get how race norming is not eugenics?

  4. DW really should fire this news anchor. He was already annoying when it came to objective reporting of the Palestine/Israel conflict. If I was playing a drinking game where I did a shot for every time his face contorted or he made an insinuating or leading question, I would have died long ago from alcohol poisoning. The quality of DW's reporting is also all over the place. The most basic information, the name of the disease, Chronic traumatic encephalopathy (CTE), is never mentioned. That's almost like reporting on hundreds of deaths in Indonesia but failing to say it was because of a typhoon. Leaving out the most basic information. Abject standards.

  5. Who knows the crooked criminal organization I know one thing they cheated the American citizens they cheated the football fans time for them to just shut down little league more interesting perhaps and more honest approach you get all of this on X1 so
    The NFL will never come back too many fans have been cheated and know it so the next time they get down on their knees that ought to be to pray that the league can survive another year
