Who then became the president.

Jackie Robinson (Cause and Effect)

Jackie was an African American baseball player. Also because he was African American playing in a white baseball league. This led him to be ridiculed for his adversity in his skin color. The pitchers also aimed for his head while throwing instead of the bat. This also led to people booing at him as he played. They also wouldn't let him stay at the hotel the other white players were staying at. Along with the hotel the other people made him sit in the back of the bus when they drove to games. Even though all of this happened he never yielded to people that didn't like him. He broke the color barrier between white and black team because back in the day African Americans were not allowed to play with white people. His braveness caused other people to stand up for their skin color.
