I think it's interesting that there is still reason to do a study like this, in the new millenium.

The National Basketball Association received an A in racial diversity from a university study released Wednesday, the top grade among America's pro sports leagues.

The NBA also is tied with Major League Soccer in providing opportunities for women, according to a study by Richard Lapchick of the University of Central Florida's Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport.

The NBA earned an overall grade of B-plus, the best in sports. In racial diversity the grade was an A, and in gender issues it received a B.

Why do they do this kind of stuff? Are they trying to make sports look bad or something. It is not like I am going around saying:

"Basketball is one race sport and this race is the only people who can play it"

This sport (basketball) can be played by anyone. There are lots of good players from other cultures around the world. This sport is multi-cultural. Every sport is. I just can't believe this study!
