Topic: Ethical Consideration of Race in Sports
Thread Prompt: There is still an argument that professional sports may have intensified racism in the country (for example, by creating the stereotype that African American are good athletes but cannot compete with whites in other areas requiring mental and intellectual ability). To what evidence can you point to that validates the claim that sport has “widened the concept of democracy” in the African American community? Support your answer with scriptures to defend your position and to make an argument for your defense.
Reply Prompt: Explain how a few well-paid African American (past and former) professional athletes can (or cannot) move our society toward the elimination of racist attitudes and outlooks.
Also, please include a biblical quote/scripture. Thanks.
