The article was very informative.  It talks about how blacks were involved in sports and different kind in the segregation era.  How black and white played football since it started.  African American played, golf, baseball, jockey, boxing, etc.  The cite will be very useful for my paper, because it gives information way back then, entering into the new era.  It will help readers to understand may be why blacks preform so well back than.  Some sports blacks did not get involved in because of the high price of equpiments. This cite will inform the reader how blacks was limited to certain sports. I  will agrue if they wanted to be doctors than, they would have still had limitations. I believe they were better at sports back than, because they could do something that freed them even if it was for a while.  The source is reliable because it is and Encyclopedia published by John Hopkins.

Paul Canoville will be at Wembley, cheering on Chelsea but, win or lose, nothing can erase the years of racial abuse the club's first black player suffered at the hands of his own fans.

This image is about common grounds, it say a lot.  It shows that when you are on the field it does not matter what race you are, just win.   I fine this picture useful because both play have all body parts as the other. Both have on shirts, shorts, proper shoes, and the ability. The idea for this image is to show there is no difference.  The media will sometime agrue the wrong reasons. I think that maybe the wrong concerns are stressed, when discussing black in sports.  When we are in any career, we all have an responsibility to do whats right. This is a good image and will help my readers understand in my research paper.  It reliable because photos alway tell a story.

This cite encourage young people who have a desire for music and instruments.  It inspires young students that want to earn a career in music. I decided to use this information because it is for young people who have a dream for music. The  program became so popular that it started out as "Black Talent Development Program" to Talent Development Program. The site show how young people of all ethnic background  can have opportunities to inspire them to become the best, when they work hard. People who are willing to help them discover their talents and give them experiences, they may have not been  able to receive. Azira G. Hill explain how the program (TDP) got started and the progress it has made.  She is the founder of Talent Development Program.  Also Dr.Stanley E. Romanstein shares how effective this program has become over the years. He is the president and CEO. This is a reliable source, because it is coming from people who know it works and making it work.

The podcast gives information about everybody favorite talk, sports.  I used this cite because everyone will agree on one thing, which is talking about it. This podcast talks about the lastest in sports, and the variety of sports. The people will always have common ground with sports and the communicate of it. In my research paper the arguement is not about disliking sports but African American knowing that they are more than a professional ball dreamer.  The media, coaches, parents, and professors will never change the fact that the people love their sports, no matter what they may think the difference is.

The article comparison information with blacks and whites in professional sports.  It talks about the attention professional ball players and entertainers receive.  So why wouldn't young people  want to be a professional ball player?  This cite covers  different sources such as parent, professor such as Gates, which he quotes on this cite,  "It is easy to be a black brain surgeon than to make it in the NBA."

Coachs comments on how things have changed, grades matter. This article would be very helpful in my research.  It gives tons of information on different views and sources. The material relates to my research paper, because it have similar information and more of it that will bring clarity to the readers.

Rogers, Phil. "White Sox program works to bring baseball to Chicago's inner city youth - Chicago White Sox." MLB.comVoices. Web. 2013.

I decided to use the cite because it support my research paper in so many ways.  It talks about most inner city kids not having father and how that effects why in some cases most black kids don't get involved in baseball because of absence fathers. When that father is not there with any sport, no support.  How one man got involved with an program call ACES.  The program help with much more than baseball.  Actually, it help with academics so kids could enter into a two or four year college. The kids have a better chance this way, Mr. Fullman make sure the kids take classes they need for ACT/SAT to enter college and prepare them to conduct themselves.  Kenny Fullman and Mr.Durst, an area scout, states that the program is doing just as they imagine, help kids go to college.  This is a reliable source because article is from MLB original cite and from a local city news.   Phil Roger, is an columnist for MLB.com.  He been covering MLB for 30 years.
