I'm a 24 year old black female who is a third year law student at at top twenty law school.  I have a STRONG interest in working in sports.  Originally, I flirted with the notion of agency.  However, I am beginning to accept that a woman cannot succeed in this profession.  Every athlete I meet could care less to talk business with me (despite my professionalism,) their attentions are elsewhere if you get my drift.  Additionally, every sports professional (to include agents ranging from David Falk to James Tanner, and several NFL, and NFLPA attorneys) also share a similar view...they assure me that a woman let a lone a black woman cannot succeed in the agency profession.   In one conversation "that women don't know sports...and you cannot hire an employee who doesn't know their trade."  As a result of these forms of overt discrimination, I have accepted defeat and I am not aiming to work in the employment/labor sector and eventually go inhouse for a franchise (essentially be a lawyer for a sports team.)  Teams are forced to adhere to Title VII.  I just wanted to know what you all think about a black woman being an agent...feasible or not?  Also, what do you think is the biggest hinderence my sex or my race?
