The Slice

Just wondering

1. It seems like any kid has a right to be inspired by anyone.

2. Those who achieve excellence, whatever the field, deserve credit -- certainly not blame.

3. It's true that the pursuit of athletic accomplishments can teach a person valuable lessons.

But, on balance, is the prevalence of African-American athletes in certain college and pro sports a net negative for black youths who might benefit from emulating more statistically realistic role models?
