Equity Players, Inc. BASE Game™

The name and purpose of the Society of Black Entertainment and Sports Accountants℠ has evolved from BASE℠ - Black Accountants in Sports + Entertainment℠ to now Brown Advisors in Sports + Entertainment℠ (BASE), but continues to serve the need to establish a mechanism for the advancement of advisors, primarily, but not limited to, accountants and attorneys of the African descent, in sports and entertainment. Pursuant to that end, our intent is to produce the Brown Association of Advisors in Sports + Entertainment℠, an annual global forum, specialized Continuing Professional Education (CPE) and Continuing Legal Education (CLE), as well as other advancement programs to facilitate the lifestyle, financial and wealth sustainability of athletes of color per the following statistics:

1. According to Sports Illustrated, “By the time they have been retired for two years, 78 percent of former NFL players have gone bankrupt or are under financial stress; within five years of retirement, an estimated 60 percent of former NBA players are broke”, AND

2. According to racial equality activist Richard Lapchick, “In 2017, while the MLS had only 30% players of color, roughly 80 percent of NBA players were of color, the NFL was composed of roughly 70 percent players of color, and the MLB signed 43% players of color”, BUT…

3. According to the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) data - approximations - from 2017,
While 83% of agents and business managers of artists, performers, and athletes, personal financial advisors, accountants and auditors, and attorneys or lawyers were “White”, ONLY 7% claimed Hispanic or Latino, 7% claimed Asians, and 9% claimed to be of African/Indian Ocean-descent “Brown”.
