Kraft Group Sports Management Job Listing Says Being Non-White Is A Requirement 

Printed from:

Have you ever wanted to work for The Kraft Group?

If so, your race may be a factor in hiring.

A recent job posting for a sports management associate position with The Kraft Group lists being a BIPOC (which stands for black, indigenous, or person of color) as a job qualification, according to a Google jobs posting via ZipRecruiter. A person of color is “a person who is not white,” according to Google Dictionary.

Similarly, the Kraft Group job listing has “recent graduate (last 2 years)” as a job qualification — expressing a preference for hiring younger Americans. 

The Kraft Group is a company founded by Robert Kraft that does business in professional sports, manufacturing, and real estate development. It owns the New England Patriots, a professional football team; the New England Revolution, a professional soccer team; Gillette Stadium, a professional sports stadium that hosts those two teams, plus other events; and multiple esports (professional video game playing) teams, among other endeavors, according to its web site.

Other recent job postings from the company don’t include being non-white under the qualifications section. 

Massachusetts Conservative Movement, a Facebook page, was first to point out the job posting.

“If you want to be a sports management associate for the New England Patriots, you aren’t qualified if you’re white,” the page states. “Don’t bother.”

A press spokesman for The Kraft Group could not be reached for comment on Thursday of Friday.

New to NewBostonPost? Conservative media is hard to find in Massachusetts. But you’ve found it. Now dip your toe in the water for two bucks — $2 for two months. And join the real revolution.
