Perspectives on Race

A Discussion about Events Concerning Race

Black Athletes and Favoritism?

with one comment

We watched the 1st round pick draft tonight and it was good, exciting the whole 9 yards. Majority of the 1st 32 players were black; this wasnt surprising to me at all. Then one of my friends made a statement about basketball.

She was like this white boy felt like he was discriminated against and that he had to work harder because he was white and not black; he also felt like black people were favored more in sports such as basketball and football.

I don’t think that black people are favored more or is “given it” at all I think its because black people are great at sports and they are good at what they do. But there are other races that are good at football and basketball too. When I heard this I was a little shocked at the fact he think black people are favored more. its  about what you do and put out  not your skin color. But besides that why do people feel as though the only way black guys are ever going to make it is by going to the draft or being some kind of athlete?

  1. I feel that everyone have to work hard at anything they do in sports. Its not just handed to the players in the game especially when it comes to draft. Those coaches is all about the benjamins so they will chose who ever is better. Obviously since they were 1st round pick they played the game better than some.
