      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.

      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

      Regarding pay in entertainment (sports), it is as it is in most other places.
      You should get rewards relatable to the revenue you bring in and in relation to how easy you are to replace.
      No matter gender or race or whatever other excuses people tend to blame it on. But you have to show it of before the rewards come. So winning one world championship is impressive and should have given a bonus no doubt. But consistency is also a factor. So when you continue to deliver, reward should follow. If not, achieve somewhere else.
      Womens "soccer" championships are however, on a world level very new, and low rated, in comparison to the mens version. So in a broad sense, it makes sense that women "soccer" players receive a lower payout. This will however, probably change as womens "soccer" grows. But I doubt it ever will bring in the revenue that mens "soccer" does. Thus, the general level of reward will be comparably lower.

        Lolol what if you were mixed with a black and white background? Like the fuck you gonna do charge more than black people but less than white people? Either way, still racist.

          Racism and Segregation still exists today. I'm not sorry. If you're a black or ANY colored person who supports these ideals, you are worse than a slave. You are a demon who shall be sentenced to Hell for all of eternity.

            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.

              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.

                      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.

                                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.

                                        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

                                                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.

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.

                                                          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.

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.

That makes it fairer and allows anyone of any skin colour attend if they want to. It should be about social inequity not race.

This is capitalism :) ronaldo generates millions upon millions of dollars. Morgan does not. Sorry. Look at tennis per example they earn more than man.
