    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.

    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.

    And these are the people who shout & claim racism at the top of their voices every chance they get, we hear it all of the time, yet at the same time they think it's fine to charge double because your skin isn't the right colour. Double standards, me thinks. Here's an idea to everyone, why not try to stop fueling the fire., Then maybe we can all move on. Racism should be something we all talk about in the past tense!

    Racism is on the rise. Never knew racism growing up, but with this anti white movement and push for "white guilt," I'm definently getting closer and closer to the line. In the 90s and early 00s racism was on a heavy decline, now I see racism everywhere in media and Hollywood. I see little of it in the real world, but it's more than a little worrisome the way things are trending. The current 18-30 gen seems to be the most ignorant generation humanity has ever given birth to.

    Men's soccer team gets paid more than women's soccer team is wrong. First of don't compare them based on skill. They lost against under-15 boys team 5-2 I think. So I apologize but if under-15 boys can won that championship...(insert anything you want here). And another thing correct me if I'm wrong but professional athletes gets paid based on their skills, stats and their popularity. Also popularity of the sport does effect their earnings. If you want a equal pay based on your skills, well then win or tie against male soccer team then we'll talk. The thing that gets me teams gets paid by certain % and women's team already getting paid more than men. They paid more for earning less and no one even knows or likes them and the only thing I know is one of them did insult national anthem, is a millionaire and still talks sh*t.

    I think this is one of those cases where the women should be paid more. If you perform better, then you should get paid more. Plain and simple. Though, it's hard to feel any sympathy for professional sports players when they complain about not making enough money

    I'd just say (on the charging white ppl more), imagine if the situation were reversed and ppl of colour were charged more. Without Doubt or failure this would be labeled racist by Everyone black/white etc. And would immediately be boycotted, rioted, and shut down. -- And for that pathetic attempt to legitimize racism, I used to live in an area of Houston where ppl hawk tickets, and it was Never a white guy doing it. So to say white ppl are going buy up ALL the tickets just to go into a predominantly black area to hawk tickets is just stupid, and racist.

    When it comes to sports and you can't make a set salary. I'm a huge womens soccer fan, but on a world level, they dont get the same numbers as the men. Yes, they are popular in the USA but you have to look at the real profit. The mens cup final makes in the billions, while the womens dont come close. Men get paid around 7%-9% of what's made of the billions, while women get paid 20% of the millions. So they are getting paid more. You can't pick a choose what facts to compare.

    1. I am a black woman who always preaches equal rights for people of color. And I truly understand where the festival was coming from but it was executed poorly. We can not as people who know what it is like to be oppressed in America, participate in something that targets someone based on the color of their skin. We should know better. 2. FOR ALL THE WHITE PEOPLE WHO ARE OFFENDED, WELCOME TO A SLIVER OF OUR WORLD! It’s not right by no means, but I hope you use this as a lesson and will speak up when you see POCs being treated like this.

    Here's a solution: The winner of the men's world cup should play a game against the winner of the women's world cup. The women's olympic team was once famously defeated by a high school boys' team, so they'd get destroyed by world-class male athletes.

  • SwordBreaker925

    Women's sports will get equal pay when they deserve equal pay. But as it stands, they simply do not draw in the level of attention, ticket sales and merch sales that men's teams do. People simply are not as interested in watching women's sports. Even most female sports fans prefer to watch men's sports. Also lets not forget that the Olympic women's soccer team was famously defeated by a high school boys' team. Men are simply more athletically capable than women. It's not sexism, it's biology.

    Serious, this is just straight up racism. How is this any different from putting signs up that say no colored people allowed. Now it's everyone's allowed, but you still gotta pay a different price if your skin color is this. I don't think people like Nelson Mandela and Martin Luther king would be like 'this is exactly what we imagined when we were literally dying for segregation to stop'. It feels like every time we make progress, there's a few idiots who think they are sooooooo "woke" that they take us 10 steps back. I don't care what side your on, you can't stop racism by trying to gain the upper hand with more racism. If that makes sense. I don't know anything about organizing events but I''m sure there is a way where to provide accessibility and affordability without being so blatantly racist.

    One main issue you have in the States is the division between male and female sports. Women have their own versions of sports, like with baseball and softball! I dont know any other country with different sports for different genders. Its harder for women athletes to "break through" when most of their sports are often seen as easier versions of the male counterpart.

    More than 3.5 billion people watched the World Cup in Russia, with the final between France and Croatia attracting 1.12 billion viewers, world soccer's governing body. The women's world cup was not in the same ball park. Fifa will generate a greater income from TV revenue and advertising from mens football, hence the disparity in competition prize money. Not that difficult to understand.
