The folks advocating for the women's soccer team are wrong. Maybe they bring in more revenue in ticket sales, but that's nothing compared to the ad money that men bring in. If there's a sexist conspiracy, it actually favors women due to their bigger fee structure, even if they make less in aggregate. And of course, they're relying on lawsuits... as opposed to using worker strikes as leverage, which is something male athletes typically do if they feel poorly compensated... I guess these ladies themselves don't think they have much worth. And who cares if the ladies win more (against foreign teams that probably aren't as developed, mind you), if they still fail to draw in more ad money. And don't get me started on tennis or biology. With that being said, kudos to the female athletes that still respect the American flag.

Racism is racism. The intent, reason or justification for it does not actually change what it is.

I would like to see the men team against the women team.

If they want equal pay and think they perform better then the men’s team then they should play against the men’s USA team and see how they do.

On the uswnt it’s not the same because Brazil Germany have great players it’s like comparing oranges to twinkies but I agree they should be paid equally because the women don’t roll on the ground like there being murdered

Discrimination against a white person is STILL discrimination. You can be racist toward white people. It baffles me that there is such a double standard on this. Yes, prejudice very often happens to minorities and non-white people, but it can still happen TO white people.

Just think if your sports organization was the first in the world and history to unequivocally pay all members and genders the same. They would get soooooo much good press and support, more than any “loss” from paying those higher salaries.

23 hours ago

So glad to see the younger generations aren't liberal white cucks who think black people are incapable of helping themselves without the white man's help. They don't even realize how racist it makes them look. They are drowning in virtuosity, not reality.

This is why feminists are retarded... the women actually get paid MORE then yhemem in soccer but thats because compared to the mens world cup NO-ONE watches the womens league.

I'm a simple person. I see Dr. Mike, I click... Also I watch the show regularly so-

IT IS ILLEGAL to discriminate on someone based on race. Those tickets discriminated based on race.

Common Sense: "Bring proof of address that you are a local and you get in half price."
Racism: "Whities are charged double."

I don't buy that this was a whoopsie. You need to be a special level of stupid to come up with such a bad idea, and for everyone around you to give you the thumbs up. They KNEW this was a racist move. Though since some of the performers were not aware of this idea, maybe it wasn't something that had support from all the staff. It's still impressive someone with the authority to do this was allowed to do it though. I am not going to drop my suspicions that this was done with racist intent until I hear an apology.

Them changing it did not sound even remotely like an apology, and in fact was blamed on racists. They canceled their racist price system due to white supremicists. They fucked up again. God damn it. "White supremecists credited with ending racist rules" is not what we need right now. When will people learn that racism begets racism. Doing this to white people will always hurt black people. Doing this to black people will always hurt white people. Stop making the opposing team look good!

Afrofuture needs to be canceled.

Of course the women should make more than the men not less. The women's team have scored more goals in a single game then the men have scored total in their last World Cup total goals. The women win, then men leave us disappointed.

It is racist people think cause there white its not racist that's not how it works

4 days ago

Wow those racists running afrofuture fest really double down on there raceisem when they we're forced not to discriminate. People need to stop doing the exact same thing that the people that oppress them did! The worst way to stop racism. Is by being racist.

Lol women get paid cause no one wants to watch women football

Just when you thought Fire Festival was the #1 Festival Failure, DeeeeTroit CiTeh steps up to the plate and swings like a Tiger with Cecil on third, Trammel on second and down by 1 at the bottom of the 9th 'n two outs on the board.

But don't worry AFF, you've got the LoLions to help you out in the Fall -- might get rickrolled by the CiTeh again in Festive Failures and give you the deuce spot. And there's always Florida Man to help you out, should He get get Organized enough. Oh, and Storm'n Area 51. Maybe we'll charge more for Illegal Aliens to join the Storm and profile by country of origin.

The US women’s team lost the a group of 14 year old boys. How can they ask for more money. Lol. 🙄.
I’ve never watch women’s soccer and never will.
Women’s soccer doesn’t have a following like men’s. It comes down to how much money they can bring in not if they’re winning games.

Why don’t you call it what it is Phil? They were black racist! I’m so tired of hypocrites, which those in charge of the concert are.
Don’t even come at me with “blacks can’t be racist” bull shit.

Goddamn it Phil, I watch these shows in the dark at night, I don't need a huge picture of an insect up in my face to scare me half to death.

This is racist and stupid.
Seams like everyone thinks black people are poor.

My country has also some "Illuminated" people like this. They think there should be and easy way in to college for black people and gipsies 🤦
Instead of giving the opportunity available for poor but hardworking kids ( of any color or background).

If this isn't discriminating based on your "race" I don't know what it is.

And here you can't buy your way into college, it takes only your grades into account but they want a special system appart from other's so that black people and gipsies would be able to get into college even if they have worse grades than any other poor kid.

There’s a pay gap due to viewership and sponsorship. Simple as that. Women’s soccer in general draws less viewership. As the ladies continue to win, they’ll draw more viewership in the US and get paid more. Women’s international soccer is less competitive

so many people in the US can't comprehend the meaning of th term 'racism'

Dr. Mike looks like a hero because obviously he looks like he is a man that needs to make him look more attractive. Ticks great conversation starter;) so how about them Texan ticks they're so vegan judgy they make you allergic to meat.

Instead of saying hey pay us like the men although we dont draw the men's revenue, you should examine how to draw (without shaming) people to your sport. Maybe change some rules, play the men I'm exhibition games, advertise more, maybe a video game if you dont already have one,

People who support equal pay do not understand free market capitalism. Even where the gender is the same you see the difference. For example, a college football team that is not in one big five conference's can go undefeated and not make as much money as a team in the big five who performs poorly. This is because there is a bigger draw. Again free market capitalism.

So, let me get this straight for years minorities have been fighting for justice just to turn around and do it themselves? Why not have am earlier release date to buy tix if you live in that area? Problem solved.

5 days ago

The females are not better than males. They are better at beating the females than the males beating the males. . To do a one to one, the males would have to play the females or vice versa. Also, the males drew more money. It's called capitalism.

5 days ago

So basically they are saying that people of color are poor

This is so disappointing and damaging to POC who are doing actual good for the community instead of attempting to revive a harsh part of Hammurabi's Code.
If you don't want out-of-towners snatching up tickets, then sell the tickets at select locations within the city of Detroit and NOT online? Perhaps in predominately African-American areas if you don't want a bunch of wippl there? You could have done SO MUCH better, AfroFuture. Instead, you're perpetuating racism by charging more money to people who you think deserve to be punished for something they didn't even necessarily do.

All i can think everytime i see American news is...... What le fuck America.

What kind of weird cryptic shit was that? If you're still around next year?

America.. fix yaself already, pretty please from a European.(cause you screwing everyone worldwide)

At the DIA (Detroit Institute of Arts) anyone living in Wayne County can show the ticket stand their Driver's License and walk in for free. AfroFuture fest could've done the exact same thing (or just charge residents the cheaper fare) if they want to make sure community members show up and aren't shafted by scalpers. I have a hard time believing the organizers of this event, if they're from the Detroit area, were unaware of this option, leading me to believe this is another case of disproportionate affirmative action.

Also, would they charge Arab residents, who make up a significant minority population in Detroit, or Asians or Hispanics the cheaper fare? Since they talked about how they're performing in a historically black neighborhood, I wonder if even the term "People of Color" is exclusive to just African Americans.
