Jackie Robinson

“How do you like that nigger boy?” Jackie Robinson showed perseverance when he did not fight back at the other players or fans. Also, this shows the abuse Robinson had to take while he was playing baseball. (Pg. 294)

Jackie Robinson

“We can’t fight through this, Robinson. We’ve got no one on our side. No owners, no umpires, very few newspapermen. And I’m not afraid that many fans will be hostile. We’ll be in a tough position. We can win only if we convince the world that I’m doing this because you’re a great ball player and a fine gentleman.” Bean-balls would be thrown at him during the baseball game. This shows Jackie had to persevere because ‘bean balls” are baseballs intentionally thrown at a batter’s head and Jackie could not do anything about it even the umpire (referee) did not do anything. (Pg. 295)
