As a soccer player, I know that during a game it would be really hard to concentrate when fans, spectators, and others in the stands are yelling, screaming, and shouting racist things.
At South Bronx United, we have players that have backgrounds from all over the world. That’s what makes South Bronx United, united. Because of the diversity on the team, we all have different mind sets and different cultures, but this does not bother or distract anyone on the team. In fact, it encourages us to learn new things and cultures that we didn’t know even existed.
On my team, U-18 Sonics, we have players from more than 10 countries all over the world. The more diverse we are, the stronger the team gets.
