When there are incidents of racism or discrimination against players, it is big news and the whole country knows about it. African Americans has had to deal with coming from a racist background in professional sports where they weren't even allowed to play professional sports to now where they are judged and still have to do with racism. It is unfair that African Americans have to deal with such demoralizing people and are not viewed as equal despite slavery, the civil rights movement and such things as that society still had racist views. However, we can use this to change society permanently. If we can get rid of racism in professional sports that's a start.
Another quote which reflects the different races is “Ferguson’s leadership was mostly white at the time of Brown’s death. But the new city manager, municipal judge and police chief are all black men. The city has also begun an effort to recruit more black officers to its department.”. This quote creates a positive connotation to the fact that more black men are being appointed. This is done by the use of but, which proposes a change in the situation.
Imagine finally having the sport you are most passionate about available for you to participate in, yet not being able to compete in it simply because you are not of the correct gender. Nowadays, this is a fairly common issue. Whether it is because of both gender differences or due to the common belief that “boys are stronger than girls”, coeducation exercise is not exceedingly popular. Although many people believe males are stronger than females and think that coed sports are unfair, this type of athletics can benefit all athletes in multiple ways because it will allow both genders to work together more efficiently, allow the participants and sponsors to pay less, and help create connections with others that would not originally be made. Some will say that coed sports are not constructive when it comes to males and females working together; however, this is not true because it allows both genders to work together more efficiently.

He had Fresno State try to sign him, San Diego State, SMU, and Wyoming those are just a couple of colleges that talked to him. Fresno State was probably the best choice he could’ve made for his career because they helped him do what he wanted to achieve which is make the NBA. The college he went to was the best choice for him. No one thought he could make the NBA except his mom and two sisters which were his inspiration. Paul George one of the best players in the NBA today will get back to good health and he will play to full ability again one day.
He turns to Tamburrini's positive arguments for lifting the ban, challenging three specific claims: “that lifting the ban will erase competitive inferiority, that it will help athletes in perfecting their skills, and that it will improve knowledge that can reduce harm to athletes”. Erasing competitive inferiority is just a fancy way of saying that the playing field for professional sports will be more even in terms of athletic ability. Every player at the professional level has the necessary elite skill set or they wouldn’t be there, but not everybody is blessed with super-natural athleticism as most of the best players are in the professional leagues. Using performance enhancing drugs could balance that out by giving that skilled player the elite athleticism he needs to go from being good to an all-star. Every athlete in the world wants to be the best they can be and want to perfect their sport they play.
I mean it 's right there, it 's very easy to get me going" ("Kobe Bryant Best Motivational Speech"). Another factor of what inspired him was his willingness to become the greatest which encouraged him to do better each time. "That 's how I would think everyone would go into it. You want to be the man, you know, not the best of the moment, but the best who ever set foot on a basketball court," said Kobe Bryant (Biography Today 54). Kobe brought out the best in people and he wanted to have a positive effect to the people around him and supported him in his life.
Recorded within an interview, Fitzgerald stated that he wants to be sure he is always setting a good example for the younger generation. Fitzgerald also stated that there is more to life than just playing sports, that being a good citizen and give back to people less fortunate is more important than any sport (Kraft). These simple acts and statements rub off on those who follow college football, and present them with the chance to better themselves. Student athletes can also influence their environment by proving to other students that they are still involved and focused in their studies despite the common belief. Athletes can do this by always showing up for class, joining study groups, and/or raising their G.P.A.
I enrolled into this class as a way to gain a richer context to race and ethnicity as it applies to my experiences. As a young African American male, race plays a very large in my daily life. This was especially true during my childhood as I grewing up in a predominantly white community. As a way to deflect microaggression-- a term I just learned describes the actions of many towards me during my youth-- I attempted to downplay my race when possible. Through this, I feel a rift has formed between myself and those who also identify as black.
For instance, Nelson Mandela is the most iconic leader of which most of the world population is aware of his benefit for the life quality of the segregated men and women. However, the population is not aware that Nelson Mandela was looking to unify South Africa and so used this desire to influence and improve the aspects of economics and democracy of South Africa while also improving the lives of South Africans. This is seen through interviews in which the population after his rule (1994) claim to be prouder of being South African, which in this case is a wonderful result because it meant that the population had their lives improved in such way that they believed in their identity. De Klerk’s presidency wasn’t as iconic as Mandela’s due to the fact that he didn’t begin many programs and strategies to improve the life of the repressed population, rather that he was the one who took the first steps to ending the Apartheid regime through suppressing Acts, liberating public areas etc; which could be argued that he did in fact improve the life of Blacks in South Africa but not in a direct, and rich way like Mandela, due to the
