Don’t Classify Sports for a Race

Tennis has been considered a “white” people sport the same as how soccer is a “Mexican” sport.
Another stereotype would be if I said all black people are good at basketball. My friend has told me why are you playing tennis? Mexicans don’t play tennis. That pushes me to actually do something in tennis to represent Mexicans not just in sports but in everything.
