Similar to Larry Bird, Caitlin Clark is the subject of discussions regarding racial inequality in sports.

Caitlin Clark has been the center of attention in the world of college basketball for the majority of the last two years.

Similar to how NBA Hall of Famer Larry Bird was forty-five years ago, Clark is now unintentionally at the center of conversations concerning her race and her move to the professional game. Talks of a double standard are being had, despite the fact that Clark hasn’t said anything to support the Black-white narrative surrounding her rapid rise.

It seems like a big deal to me. When asked about the racial component of Clark’s fame and prior to her recent signing of two significant endorsement deals, Las Vegas Aces star A’ja Wilson responded, “I think a lot of people may say it’s not about Black and White, but to me, it is.” It’s true that you can be exceptionally good at what you do as a Black woman, but perhaps that’s something that others find offensive.
