Snoop Dogg thinks it's time for some fundamental change. In a "Corner Office" interview with The New York Times, the rapper and entrepreneur said that it's time corporate America stopped treating Black people "like they're less."
Asked what he thinks about NBA icons Kevin Durant and Steph Curry making investments in startups, Snoop zeroed in on a key gap that he thinks need to be filled right away. "They're always the ones who do the hard work, the groundwork, but we never but them in," Snoop said of Black businesspeople.
"Like, why don’t we have an owner in an NFL? That’s just racist. Period, point blank," he said of the century-old football league that currently has two minority co-owners -- Pakistani American Shahid Kahn of the Jacksonville Jaguars, and Asian American Kim Pegula of the Buffalo Bills -- but which has never had a team fully owned by a Black businessperson. "We need to own an NFL team. We got one half-owner in the NBA, Michael Jordan. But the whole league is 90 percent Black. So we still the slaves and they still the masters."
