Guess what's racist? C'mon, guess.

With a Loud Ovation, Baseball Shows Its Whiteness
Carlos' Blog
We live in an age of unbridled white id.

Many days it is anything goes, baby, from the White House to the baseball stands; objecting often draws a scornful wave of the hand and a lecture on political correctness.

The latest eruption comes courtesy of Josh Hader, a 24-year-old white relief pitcher with a smoking fastball and a Twitter account filled with hideous thoughts typed when he was 17 and 18. A Hader sampler: “White Power, lol” (with an emoji of a clenched fist), “KKK,” and “I hate gay people.” He also used that vilest of words for black people.

...
Not just the one jadrool, you understand.

Baseball.

Sports fans are on the whole the worst when it comes to race.

Had it been a Hispanic player who had a twitter history favorable to a violent separatist movement that advocated the murder of white people but then apologized claiming to have been young and he really didn't mean it... I'm sure he gets a standing ovation from that crowd in Milwaukee.


Or not. Which is the point. "Kids will be Kids" is one of the most selectively applied concepts in American life. Minorities and poor need not apply...

Well to be fair, I think they were applauding him for his apology, not for the racist tweets.

But RCC is correct. The reaction would probably be a lot different.

Right. Except for presidential "advisor" Sharpton, for example.

Yeah.

I'll bet "The Rev" is a Yankees fan just like Hillary and all those Mancunian chavs, too. :evil:
