In David and Goliath author Malcolm Gladwell talks about how Vivek Ranadive overcomes many obstacles while building his basketball team full of nerdy girls. At first Vivek didn’t understand the concept of basketball he thought it was a pointless game. Later he became the couch of his daughter's basketball team and went on to compete in the nationals . It shows how sometimes things aren’t so appealing to us at first so we tend to denounce them. Rather than taking time to develop interest or understanding the subject we just label it as a dislike.
Mayella is white, which means the other gender looks down her, they come to the conclusion that she is weaker and lesser than they are, but on the other hand, she does have major white privileges and could possibly get a colored man to do whatever she wanted him to do. That’s another factor that makes her powerful in race. Furthermore, does she have power in gender? Well, she is a young lady, people like that do tend to get trampled over or silenced or taken advantage of. She uses that term “taken advantage of” when she is in court testifying.

Many critics and fans around the world call it the NBA greatest show on earth. No other league around the world brings what the NBA’s game has brought every season. The greatest plays, games, dunks, players and passion for the basketball are reasons why the fans keep watching. The NBA’s style of playing the game has changed dramatically through the years.

If I didn’t have my teammates with me to encourage me on the court, I do not think I would have kept my goals of wanting to play D1 basketball. There were times that I was challenged so much during practice by his strong words that I just wanted to scream at him. In my 4 years, there was not one time that I did though because of my teammates. They knew how to calm me down and keep a positive attitude when things were hard during practices. One specific player that kept me sane was Napheesa Collier.
My race is strong because ive learned blacks have been through lots of obstacles. Blacks have been thru slavery, and after slavery still being treated like we don 't belong here. Im happy things have changed since then because id hate for it to still be that way because I have a lot of white friends that adore my black self. I’ve danced with my white friends since I was seven years old ,been going to dance competitions together, eating out, and sleeping over.

But it didn't last for long because as soon as she dropped out from school and went back to homeschooling she stopped encountring racism. On the other hand, Dumas woke up to being made fun of, not only her but also her whole family faced racism specifically because of their names.

Racism never stopped to Dumas, she had to learn how to not care about what others say and not give it a lot of thought like she used.

Misconceptions are an assumption a person or group has towards a certain characteristic of a class. They are typically formed from stereotypes and usually have an unfounded basis.
Selfish players have little part in championship teams, players must be willing to follow game plans and play team defense or they will hurt the odds of victory for the team. Coach Rose also emphasizes the importance of unselfishness as one of his five key principles in the beginning of his book (Rose, 2004, p. 2). In a recent writing done about the most selfish players in the NBA, only one of them has ever won an NBA Finals (Top 5 most selfish players in the NBA, 2013). Last season’s San Antonio Spurs are a great example of how unselfish play can lead to an NBA Final’s victory.
