The Stupidest Most Blatantly Racisct Thing I've Heard All Day, April 15

I'I'm sure I'm not the only one who heard Rachel Robinson say this during the Padres-Odgers broacast, in re: Blacks in Baseball and why it's necessary for the numbers to increase:

"It's important for the fans, too. People come to see their own, you know."

I don't care who this woman is: That is an incredibly ignorant, racist statement. Mostly because it's completely fucking untrue, and a slap to the face of every non-black fan of baseball who's celebrated Robinson's legacy.

Wow. Didn't catch that comment, but now that I think about it, I'd go to a lot more games if they'd get some Quebecoise in the majors.

I would watch hockey if they hadn't taken away our team. C'est la vie.
