I am sick of hearing about Jackie Robinson.
I realize the affect he had on the game and how he changed it and America but if it hadn’t been him it would have been someone else. I know you are saying but it was him. My point is he was the right person, in the right place at the right time.
I know or have heard of all the nasty stuff that was said to him and about him. I know how even some of his teammates rejected him. I know how during those years a black couldn’t eat in a restaurant, use a bathroom, stay in a hotel, drink out of a water fountain, swim in a pool etc. etc. etc. It was the worst of times for black people. (so when these whiners of today complain about racism they need to look back at those days.)
Back in the 1980s I believe it was they took a survey of black players and asked about Jackie Robinson. Most didn’t know who he was. So apparently baseball took it upon themselves to educate players. So they retired the number 42 in all of baseball. Then this Jackie Robinson day all players, coaches, umps, everyone that wears a number has 42 on their uniform. It is a little ridiculous and seems to have been brought on by Ken Griffey Jr. years ago when he asked baseball if he could wear the number on Jackie Robinson day. So baseball got the idea for EVERYONE to wear it. They couldn’t just put a patch on everyone’s uniform. It looks a little ridiculous.
I am sick of all the black history that excludes whites.
Baseball is racist. They celebrate Jackie Robinson day on April 15th every year when they should be celebrating Jackie Robinson and Branch Rickey day every year because without Branch Rickey there would be no Jackie Robinson and maybe no blacks in baseball. Yes, MAYBE someone else would have stood up and done the same thing but we will never know, so Branch Rickey deserves as much credit and honor as Jackie Robinson.
Last year baseball again proved it was racist and not in the traditional form but white racism when they named the two annual awards/trophies for hitting in each league after two black players. Rod Carew and Tony Gwynn. Yes they won a lot of batting titles but what else? And yes I know that Carew is Panamanian but still is black. My point is in over 100 years of baseball they had to name these two? How about Joe DiMaggio with his 56 game hitting streak and WS wins and career .325, 2214 hits, 361 home runs, 1537 rbis. 13× All-Star (1936–1942, 1946–1951) 9× World Series champion (1936–1939, 1941, 1947, 1949–1951) 3× AL MVP (1939, 1941, 1947) 2× AL batting champion (1939, 1940) 2× AL home run leader (1937, 1948) 2× AL RBI leader (1941, 1948) MLB record 56-game hitting streak Major League Baseball All-Century Team. Then there was Ted Williams the last player to hit .400. How about the Babe himself who saved baseball single handedly. How about Lou Gehrig with his 2130 consecutive games look at Gehrig’s stats you will be amazed. How about Ty Cobb, the hits leader for decades with 4191 hits. And there are so many more but baseball is trying to get black players to come back to baseball so they name these two and honor Jackie Robinson every year.
This like most other events in black history couldn’t have happened without white people or a white person. i.e. How about the underground railway? All we hear is about Harriet Tubman while I am sure there were others who performed the same service, there were also white land owners who risked their lives, homes, land and possibly their children’s lives helping get the slaves to freedom. BUT you never hear about them do you? Freeing the slaves. A white president, Abraham Lincoln and a white REPUBLICAN party that voted for freeing them and allowing them to vote while the DEMOCRATS were against it. The Civil Rights Act of 1964. Another white president, actually two white presidents and again the white congress would pass this law. John F. Kennedy started it and put it into play and then of course was assassinated. And Lyndon Johnson and congress would sign it into law in 1964, again another white president.
So as you can see whites are the object of hate today due mostly in part because of the hate and divisiveness of the Democrats. In the election of 2016 I believe blacks finally realized Democrats only care about them every election. After all what did Obama do in eight years as president. What city or state did he rebuild? What black communities did he rebuild or schools did he build? No he was rubbing elbows with Hollywood. Those one percenters that donated millions to him and the party. Apparently this didn’t work for Hillary. Van Jones called it a whitelash while Billy Clinton said it was a lot of angry white men. Yes maybe it was but we were tired of a crappy economy and Obama did nothing and Hillary had no plan, no vision.
