How come they don’t let blacks play punter or kicker (no racist replies!)?

     Maybe you're not much of a "Football" fan.

    I know I used to asked, why is it that the Black (African)

    Quarterbacks tend to run the other than throw it?

    But that's just my view.

    The NFL is owned by rich racist Democrats and their stadiums are in systemically racist city.  What else did you expect from men with concussions?

    Where have the nfl or college football not aloud blacks to be a kicker or punter? Stop spreading lies, you’re like the media.

    Dude...... just because kickers and punters are usually white, doesn't mean they "don't let" African Americans play the position. Its the same with Running Backs, usually more African Americans are seen in that position more than Caucasians. They don't just not let someone play a position because of their race. Do you expect it to be a perfect 50% split between positions in the league?

    Question-asker is a hockey fan.  They're not use to seeing so many black players at once (as they have in football).

    The premise of the question is flawed.  No one is being disallowed from playing any position in the NFL based on race or ethnic background.

    Don't watch much football, do you?

    They do. Not many black football players in that position, including college football, the feeding ground for the NFL. It's a specialized skill.  Most kids who play the game aren't kickers. Most athletes like playing the game, not standing around for most of it and seeing very limited action. They gravitate toward other positions. And part of it is probably explained by coaching beginning at the lowest levels. Coaches decide what aspects of the game young players appear to have the most aptitude for and players are developed in those positions.

    Back in the day when they played wearing leather helmets or no helmets...Back when the sport was played by real men and not a bunch of 'Mommy's boys'...

    It was the job of the quarterback to do all the punting and kicking.

    They do allow it.  Where did you read they don't?

    Great question.
