    Mr. R. L. Hampton Sr., “Tru Dat,” your commentary is on point. I concur, with your sentiments of pulling for your likeness, people that you identify with and most often, share an interlocking bond. I remember well, my HS years of the 60s’ and our English teacher would often say to the class , “you have to be twice as good as those other people!” Throughout my athletic career, that concept stayed with me during my tenure as a player and as a coach. Presently, team sports, the echelon, is Afro-American coach, Afro-American qb, pitcher, point guard, and singular sport, your article define it. Outstanding commentary and keep on hitting the nail on the head!
