On the Issue of Race in Contemporary American Sports.
Edwards, Harry
Western Journal of Black Studies, v6 n3 p138-44 Fall 1982
Just as Blacks are underrepresented in authority positions and overrepresented in the lower occupational strata in the broader American labor force, Blacks in sports also function in a semi-caste system; they are relegated to the least powerful, least secure, most expendable, and most exploited role: that of the athlete.
