NFL to tackle 'racism' and 'sexism' by using virtual reality training where staff are harassed by a white man

The National Football League plans to use virtual reality for 'diversity training' to fight sexism.

The project, in which a black woman is harassed by a white man, is being headed by Stanford University’s Virtual Human Interaction Lab.

“VR can deliver on real social issues that allow people to be better… We’ll start using this as another teaching tool later this year,” Troy Vincent, executive Vice President of NFL Football Operations, said.

The VR experience was originally intended to train athletes through virtual reality simulations, but then the NFL became interested in extending this training to diversity awareness.

“The user is represented by an African-American female avatar who is being angrily harassed by a white avatar,” USA Today wrote. “When the user reflexively lifts his or her arms in self-defense, the hands feature black skin.”

You can only be a racist if you are white – all others declare victim stats.

Go to Africa or China if you want to see what real racism looks like.
