Opinion: Portrayals of Black Men in Sports Don’t Tell Real Story

No matter the year or the reception, the depiction of black men in sports movies is far from accurate.  Favorites like Remember the Titans,  Glory Road and The Blind Side all tell the story of the black man’s struggle to find success in the sports world.  But how accurate are these movies?  How does football  accurately show the end of segregation?  Is it possible every black man is saved by a rich all-American white family.

This video package gives a different look at some of the most beloved sports classics.
