Hawkins (2010) conceptualized the condition of the African American student-athlete as a consequence of “internal colonialism.” These colonial influences are persistent in the current era though manifested in different ways. The plight of these athletes have been examined previously via stereotyping, media influences, role modeling and other theoretical and conceptual lenses. Here we posit an examination of the juncture of racial and athletic identity in African American student-athletes through research conducted by four researchers from the University of Texas at Austin.
