Eleanor Roosevelt saying a inspiring quote for people

Jackie Robinson's Causes and Effects That Lead to Greatness.

Jackie Robinson played baseball in an all-white league which back then black people weren't allowed to play in and now today anyone who makes it to the MLB can play without any racism or threats. Also people didn't treat him with respect so whenever they would have a game the fans would throw things at him and boo at him. Whenever they needed to stay somewhere for the night the hotels didn't let them because they didn't let black people stay at hotels. Also when they rode on a bus he had to ride on the back. The pitchers aimed at him instead of attempting to get him out because he was black and every one was white. He was a tough person because he never yielded to those that did not like him he just did what he loved to do. Also later on in his life people finally noticed that it is pretty amazing to be able to play in an all-white league that now in days they give him respect and think of him as an inspiration. His adversities impacted other blacks that they stood up for rights and now today since they got equal right blacks are allowed to stay in hotels and sit anywhere in the bus. He also broke the color barrier so if other blacks played they were able. Another thing is that Jackie Robinson helped Martin Luther King Jr with segregation when four black girl were bombed in a church.
