Q3B: Athletes set unrealistic expectations for Black youth

I am going to read you a few statements and for each I'd like you to tell me whether you tend to agree or disagree with it, or if, perhaps you have no opinion about the statement. How about... only a small number of all Blacks in America become highly paid professional athletes, and the attention focused on them raises expectations of young Blacks of getting such jobs unrealistically high?
