How do words, symbols, and rituals express the American creed? America is a melting pot AKA we have many different cultures. We allow many different cultures to be in our country. We also allow different people to play in our professional sports like basketball, baseball, football, and soccer.
There are many people who have helped America come closer through sports. One of them is Earl Lloyd he was the first basketball player. When he started playing not much people started to come to games so then more African American people started playing basketball. So then people thought the game was actually starting to become better and more teams developed. There was a lot of fights in games but they came to understand that the game was getting better.
