Introduction:
The topic that will be focused on in this paper is “Do professional athletes, in today’s society, deal with racial inequalities and oppression?”. Specifically, three peer articles were reviewed while assessing this question and helped to determine the detrimental affects that these racial discriminations can have on athletes and, individuals in general. Articles reviewed include examples of direct discrimination of athletes through physical altercations as well as society’s internal beliefs.

Through these qualities, people are turning out to be progressively more unknowingly blinded by their activities, not understanding the damaging impact it has on others. This Literature Review specifically focuses on athletes but should be noted that this issue can be generalized to the entire population, as well as be seen in other forms of discrimination.
