When I was asked to write a Black History Month piece, I didn’t want to write just an obligatory “here’s a story about a black player because it’s Black History Month” article.

Obviously, diversity in general is something I feel strongly about, so I thought this would be a good opportunity to write a piece looking at soccer in the United States through the lens of African American diversity.

See: U.S. soccer diversity a work in progress.

I think, as with most diversity issues, there has been progress, but it’s important to realize that just because things are better than they used it to be, it doesn’t mean they’re at the level they should be.

Although you always have dissenters, the feedback I’ve received on this story has been very positive. It’s nice to think you can add something to an ongoing discussion.
