COLORADO — A black man named Ronnie McDonald is being lauded for his hard work in college and for his success in the United States of America.
McDonald, a 20-year-old sophomore at the University of Colorado, has been a basketball star at CU, an honor that has not been enough for him to secure a spot on the basketball team.
His basketball career has been the most difficult, but he says he doesn’t have any regrets.
He’s a proud black man, and he wants to prove that, McDonald said in a recent interview with CNN.
McDonald’s story is a perfect example of how a black person is able to succeed even after he is already an accomplished athlete.
His father, Ronnie McDonald, was a high school basketball player in Oklahoma, where McDonald grew up.
McDonald and his older brother, Tyree, went on to play college basketball at the College of Charleston.
But he wasn’t able to play in the NBA because of NCAA rules that say black players cannot be drafted.
McDonald went on the US Army National Guard, where he trained as a rifleman.
He served in the Iraq War, where his military career was the most rewarding.
He graduated from the University and was stationed in the Texas city of Fort Hood.
The decision to join the Army was difficult, McDonald told CNN, because he was told by his superiors that it was against the rules to serve in the military.
But his superiors wouldn’t let him join the reserves because of his race.
McDonald was forced to join a reserve unit, and when he came home, he was shocked to find out that he was the only black person on the unit.
He was sent to a small Texas town where the majority of the soldiers were white.
McDonald said that in the army, they were told to treat everyone the same, but the experience was traumatic.
“We were all used to being different, and I was used to it,” McDonald said.
“It was hard to deal with it.
I was scared to go back into the military because of it.
And I still am.
But after the war, McDonald’s family came back to Texas.
He said that he and his brother Tyree were able to overcome their fears and make it back home.
They moved back to Colorado and became part of the football program.
McDonald went on a national championship team, and in 2010, he won the Heisman Trophy as the nation’s top player.
In 2012, McDonald was named a senior all-American by the Associated Press, but was not chosen for the All-American team because he didn’t have enough scholarship offers.
He received a scholarship to play at the Division II University of Denver.
After graduating, McDonald went to work for the Colorado School of Mines, and it was there that he met and married his future wife, Lauren.
They had two daughters, Emily and Lauren, who are now in college.
According to the U.S. Department of Education, a black student in the state of Colorado receives approximately $12,000 less in scholarship assistance than a white student, even after adjusting for family income.
While McDonald and Tyree have received national recognition, they are not alone.
McDonald has received praise for his scholarship success and his personal success.
A report by the National Coalition of Black Collegiate Schools says that he is one of only six black athletes on the U of C’s basketball team, despite only being 20 years old.
And the Denver Post recently featured McDonald as a “senior All-America” and one of its “top 10 black basketball players” in the nation.
McDonald believes that his success has helped him and his family feel valued and included.
Although he says that his basketball success has not given him any particular happiness, McDonald has a message for all athletes who might be struggling.
He said that the black community needs to stand up for itself and for the people who are struggling.
