Arthur Ashe is not my hero0 but i still consider him a hero0 for all that he did and went through from being a famous tennis player and a humanitarian, he left his prints here in this world by making a difference.

Arthur Ashe is my hero because he didn't belive that it was fair that people were treated differently.  And I don't believe in that either. He is also my hero because he helped put a stop to the white people being mean to the native americans.  He also loved tennis and so do I. It is my favorite sport.
