Jackie Robinson the Most Popular Baseball Player

Jackie Robinson was a very famous baseball player in 1947, he gave a lot resilience to become the famous baseball player he is today. because of the things that people did to the African American’s is the reason why Jackie Robinson and people like Rosa Parks are famous. The question is why did people not like African Americans? was it because they looked different, or because they just wanted someone to be in the lower class so they could be better than them, but they didn’t realize that when they put themselves above African Americans that only actually helped the African Americans even more in the long run and showed perseverance and tenacity which means the will to go on which all African Americans had to have to help them persevere.

Since Branch Rickey has taken a chance on Jackie Robinson all African Americans got more hope that Americans could and will choose them to help lead something bigger that Americans cannot because of the hole that the Americans have put the African Americans into. The main difficulty that Branch Rickey and Jackie Robinson had to overcome was the people that didn’t want the African Americans to get into the same class as them but eventually they got everyone onto the same page.

In the end Jackie Robinson became a famous person not because of how good he was at baseball but because of how the Americans were treating all African Americans in his time, and how Branch Rickey was helping him through the adversities that the Americans have done to not just him but all the African Americans.


We can learn from others adversity's how we can either help them get through them or how we can know how to stop them before they even occur. Even if we are different colors all people should be equal and we can help each other become equal if they aren't. In conclusion we can always help others and get through anything.
