BY THE OLD BAG
Baseball is the “American Pastime”, with tens of millions of American kids (of all races) playing it. Tonight, in the MLB All-Star game, when the starting lineups and managers where announced (20 people), each was accompanied by a kid—this was in front of a sold out crowd and on national TV.
ALL of the kids accompanying the all-stars were black.
77% of America is white (62% non-Hispanic white; 15% Hispanic white), and 12.5% is black; 10.5% are other racial backgrounds.
MLB very obviously and very purposefully decided to leave out representation of almost 90% of American children.
I wonder how that obvious display made children feel all across the country?
I wonder what this type of practice does for race relations in America?
I wonder why ANYBODY in 2018 decides to purposely discriminate against ANYONE of ANY RACE?
