WASHINGTON — A leading black women's group is calling the NFL's decision not to include any
African-American women as consultants on domestic violence "unacceptable."

The Black Women's Roundtable, made up of female leaders who represent black women and girls,
said it appreciated the league's Monday decision to bring in three domestic violence experts as
consultants.

"However, your lack of inclusion of women of color, especially black women who are
disproportionately impacted by domestic violence and sexual assault; and the fact that over 66% of the
NFL players are made up of African-Americans, is unacceptable," the group said in a Tuesday letter.
Civil rights activist Rev. Jesse Jackson has also criticized the NFL's decision to hire three white female
domestic violence experts.

The NFL on Wednesday said its attempt to curb domestic violence goes beyond those consultants.

It's been a good while, but this place has always been home. Thankful to be here.
Hi! I'm not as active on this account as I want to be. For one I tend to forget that this site exists until I check my email. Two, I'm currently in the process of building up a fine art site for Oklahoma black and native historical references. The references correlate with another site that will be a storytelling site that has not yet been produced.
Happy to be back and gaining more knowledge!
