During a press conference at the World Cup in Qatar, Tyler Adams - the US men's national team captain - answered a question about racism in America. It came from an Iranian reporter who had recently tried to check Adams for a mispronunciation of Iran.
The reporter remarked, "Let's get this straight once and for all," after correcting Adams on how to properly say his country's name. He then asked Adams if he was "okay" to represent the US at the football event because they have "so much discrimination against black people on their own border."

Despite being tested, Adams handled it all gracefully and spoke about how racism isn't just an American issue. “I apologize for mispronouncing your country. Yeah, apart from that, you know, there's discrimination everywhere," Adams said.

"One thing I've learned, particularly from living abroad in recent years and adapting to different cultures, is that in the US we're making progress every day," he said. Adams then went on to explain how his upbringing, which consisted of growing up in a white family of "African American heritage," helped him navigate different cultures.
"Not everyone has that ease and ability to do that and obviously it takes longer to understand. And through education, I think it's super important - how you're teaching me your country's pronunciation right now. So yes, it's a process. I think as long as you see progress, that's the most important thing," he explained.
The conference followed Sunday's call by Iranian state media to ban the United States from participating in the World Cup in Qatar. The reason was a (now-removed) social media post by the US national team deleting an Islamic emblem on the Iranian flag.
It was seen as support for protesters taking action against the Iranian government.
