North Omaha, Sports
Sports are a large part of the community for fans and non fans alike.
Sports give youth a sense of hope. More importantly it keeps young kids
out of gangs and away from drugs. African-Americans have fought for a
place on sports teams throughout the years, destroying the racial
barriers. It wasn’t just the athletes that fought for these rights. A
large amount of the black people in the community became united and
helped to make young African-American athletes' dreams realized. When
some of those athletes became professionals, they exhibited a sense of
pride they earned through proving themselves to white athletes. Over the
years, whites became more accepting of them, and the stereotype that
whites are better than blacks was destroyed. Black athletes became
heroes in their communities and across the country.
