Strange thoughts regarding the article. I didn't seem to find where the editor mentioned the race of any participant nor the race of the coach?!
You should go by the gym sometime. I found myself there one evening after some of the kids had returned from a national tournament about a year ago. You'll find that 'race' doesn't exist in their vocabulary...it's a pretty cool place! Keep your eye out for these kids, because of the healthy influence they receive in the boxing program, they will be the future leaders of our city!
Keep on keepin' on Coach Smith!
