Ending Racism In Sports [Infographic]

Racism has riddled sports for decades.  Despite that fact, great strides have been made.  There used to be separate leagues for different races, but now players of all races play together.

In 1902, Charles Follis became the first black professional football player.  In 1936, much to Hitler’s chagrin, Jesse Owens took home four Olympic gold medals.  In 1947, Jackie Robinson broke the color barrier in baseball.  And by 1961, the Washington Redskins became the last football team in America to integrate racially.  But integration was just the first step.

There is still a lot of racism in sports, as evidenced by the recent Donald Sterling controversy.  Players are still not respected by team owners and fans, which threatens both team cohesiveness and societal harmony.  Learn more about racism in sports and how you can fight back from this infographic.  You can’t solve racism alone, but together we can raise awareness and fight back.
