Within the black community there is an elevated social status tied to athletics that many of us cling to. Sports allow us to escape as we get a certain sense of freedom on the playing field. So many African Americans view athletics as the only means to financial freedom. Once we realize that we will not obtain our ultimate goal of playing professionally it can be extremely difficult to let go and step away from our sport.
