Character, Not Color

By Ronald Court

A while ago, ESPN Magazine did a story on 24 year-old NBA star Boris Diaw. He came to America from France three years ago to play with the Atlanta Hawks. He’s with the Phoenix Suns now..

He found America’s obsession with race odd…
His closest friend on the Hawks, Josh Childress, said, “He couldn’t get over the fact that there was separation between blacks and whites here. “He was like, “In France, we just look at people as people, not as black or white.” He’d ask why it was like that and Childress didn’t have an answer for him.

Booker T. had the answer. And you can pass it on.
It’s what’s inside that counts, not outside.
It’s Character, not color.
