Not enough sports-data nerds are black.

This is from ESPN’s new race-based boutique, The Undefeated.  Because of course, Grantland just wasn’t doing it, so they had to can it and replace it with something else.

I suppose this also means that ESPN’s Five Thirty Eight, where ESPN’s sports-data nerdery takes place, which probably has very few if any blacks on staff, will have to be shut down.

Surprised that the dork in Orlando with a fax machine didn’t get a shout-out here.
