The United States men's soccer team is currently in Qatar playing in the World Cup. It's the first time the event has been played in an Arab nation.
Tuesday afternoon the United States takes on Iran, a country not known for its robust civil rights. Despite this, an Iranian reporter attempted to corner Team USA Captain Tyler Adams and actually asked him what it's like to come from a country with so much racism and discrimination going on.
Adams, who is of mixed race, handled it perfectly. Check it out:

There's discrimination everywhere you go. In the US, we're continuing to make progress every single day. It's a process, and as long as you see progress that's the most important thing.
Thankfully it was Adams who was asked this question and not Megan Rapinoe of the U.S. Women's National Team. She would still be talking if she were asked this question.
It was a weird day at the World Cup. It appears the Iranian media is studying their United States counterparts and using their exact tricks.
Gregg Berhalter and Tyler Adams have now been asked about systemic racism in the U.S., the American fleet in the Persian Gulf, high inflation, and why Iranians need a visa to visit the USA but Americans don't need one for Iran.
This press conference has been... different.
