Jackie Robinson

is racism really over

By: Mason Sprinkel

Discrimination in Sports

Jackie Robinson became the first African American player in the major leagues during a time when the league was all white. He proved himself to the fans and to other players by being a great ballplayer. Police are shooting unarmed African-Americans.

Jackie Robinson is a famous African American baseball player. He faced racism in the armed forces and in baseball. He overcame that for being the best and the first African American to be in the major league and getting into the hall of fame. A man killed an African American teenager and was proven not guilty know and, a police officer put Eric Garner in a choke hold for some reason. People should remember the way that white people treated African Americans in the past and make up for it and being the best of friends to them also if we get into a fight with them

Discrimination in the armed forces

He fought through it like in the armed forces. People still don respect African Americans in the army like how some poeple say stories about other poeple rudly interupted and those poeple that are being inturupted are african american
