Jackie Robinson

Jackie Robinson Description Paragraph

Jackie Robinson was a very important person in history. An example is when he was playing baseball in front of people, fans would call him names. Jackie would just let them say it and didn't talk back to them. If said anything back it would just be reason to get him kicked out of playing baseball and ruin his career. This shows resilience. Some characteristics are motivated, determined and honesty. The fans were solidarity. Branch Rickey was like his coach who guided him through adversities in Jackie's life. It looks like Branch Rickey was always on his side and they broke the color barrier together and never gave up to accomplish a goal. Jackie was inspired to make a change in Major League Baseball. For instance when Jackie would play baseball the fans would always try to put him down but he just ignored them even though he wanted to fight back in his mind. For example in the text it says “Robinson had the guts to speak out against racial injustice after he retired from baseball.” This shows that Jackie wanted to make a change even though he wasn’t playing anymore in MLB. This shows that the fans thought he was inadequate.
