Warning: Un PC Post Below
Hey... I don't know if you heard... but apparently its the 60th anniversary of something about Jackie Robinson. I mean... you may have missed it. You might not have seen the 200 hours ESPN has DEADicated to it... or the pathetic pandering of the media on every level.
Can you people get a freakin' grip? He was black.. and he played baseball. Great. He wasn't even close to the best player in the negro league of the day. He was in fact, a freakin' publicity stunt... Hand picked for his personality... not his play.
I wonder if I am the only one noticing a sea change about race in America. There has been a backlash in the whole Imus thing... not to mention the Duke Lacrosse deal. At the same time the media is pounding the PC drum... the common folk are sick and tired of hearing about it. I've even heard liberal radio personalities defending Imus.
The ever present under current of racism in the world is a forbidden topic. We are never allowed to say what it is that we all know.
And what is it that we all know?
Everyone is racist.
