Jag har skrivit en muntlig redogörelse om en text som jag och en klasskamrat har sammafattat. Kan någon kolla grammatiska och liknande fel?
Tack på förhand!
The text we have read deals with something that is more unconventional today than for one hundred years ago. The African- American people were underestimated in American society in that time, not to mention in American’s national sport. African- Americans were not permitted to join in sports, even if they were better than many white people. That was one of many injustices of abilities that appeared for African- Americans.
But this didn’t of course last for ever. One man, who was black and talented in all sports that existed in that time, did a big favour to themselves. He made a big difference in American society.
Jack Roosevelt Robinson is the name of this hero I’m talking about. He was born in 1919 and lived with his 5 fatherless siblings. The mother, Mallie, was very determined to take care of her children and raise them as good people and of course teach them the value of sound, even if it was very difficult she succeeded.
Robinson studied in the University of California in Los Angeles. The fact is that he was the first athlete that competed in the first four sports (football, basketball, baseball and track). But he realized that his education would be of little use so he left school and worked instead. After a couple of years he joined in the U.S. army. And things weren’t easy there either. One time he refused to obey an order to move to the back of the bus, as a consequence he was put on trial for insubordination, but he wasn’t guilty.
After the army, Robinson played for a team in the Negro Leagues. And they were as good as the major league, even better sometimes, but in the eyes of the white people, the Major League was the athletic heroes.
