The question seems to be answering a question more than seeking an answer.Is there discrimination in sports? There are some incredibly talented black atheletes in Basketball and football. They play the sport well and are paid well for their efforts. Should it be any different? If you are complaining because there do not seem to be enough whites, Hispanics or asians, perhaps you should just recognize that maybe the blacks who make it into pro sports are motivated and talented. Is that discrimination?The Williams sisters made it big in tennis. Is it because they are black or is it because they are good?Explain where the discrimination is and perhaps it would be possible to discuss the individual issues, but a flat statement like the one you posted, is evidence of poor understanding about the way life is.
