  • "BLACK , WHITE" Does it matter what race you are ? NO , its matters about your skills.

  • Racism has not only been against African Americans but many different races too.

  • Should someone judge someone by skin color? my opinion no, but other people have their ways and have always thought of African American to always be slave and lower class than them.

  • It have been proven that most African American athletic have been more successful at different sports than other races.

  • Sports has nothing to do with race, it should be a game you love playing not a game love and war.

  • No one deserved to be judged, we are all born with equal rights.

It is safe to say racism is still a major issue in the world today . A prime example of where racism thrives is in sports .It is a complex issue which occurs at many different levels. In sports racism is happening more often and becoming a bigger issue . Leagues such as the National Hockey League and Major League Baseball Association believe that they are implementing rules which will diminish the occurrences of racism within the league. Players feel as though the leagues and associations are only aggravating the problem when trying to deal with it. But when we look at the whole picture we see how the leagues feel as though they have to do something since it is definitely not the image that they want to convey to a youthful society as role models.

Through out history’ racism in sports has been a controversial issue. During the 1936 at the Berlin Olympic game, Jesse Owens caused an uproar by winning four gold medals. Not only did he win four gold medals, but he destroyed Hitler’s idea of white supremacy. As a result, Jesse Owens did not receive any kind of invitation from President Teddey Roosevelt to attend the White House because he did not want to be offended by conservative voters; The fact that, Roosevelt did not want to be seen with Jesee Ownes who was one of the world’s most famous black athlete.

"The history of fouls called during N.B.A. basketball games from 1991 through 2004. They logged every foul called by white, and black officials against all players of both racial heritages. Bob concluded that white referees make more foul calls against black players when compared to black referees making calls against white players". This study conducted by Bob Schmidt supports the idea of racism in sports today.

Racism in soccer has been alot over until much later than in American sports. As late as the early 1990s, it was quite common for black players to have bananas thrown at them during games. There were many teams that simply refused to hire black players. These decisions were generally motivated by arguments that black players “lacked bottle” or were not able to “read the game” as well as white players. These things still happen, especially in parts of Southern and Eastern Europe, but it is much less common now and it is often to join action with some shame.
