    1. is the relevant blurb. Moses Walker, 1884.

      At least the low number of black baseball players is due to other sports than racism and prejudice.

    Of course, according to racial equality activist Richard Lapchick, the NBA in 2011 was composed of 83 percent non-white players, including 78 percent black. So sayeth Google.

    This cartoon might have meant something….in 1950.

    Agreed. This cartoon is dated.

    Isn’t there a strong and surging Latino presence in baseball? Is this baseball not being interested in blacks, or blacks not being interested in baseball? I suppose we could ask some black people for their ideas, but that just makes too much darn sense….

    “Is this baseball not being interested in blacks, or blacks not being interested in baseball?”


    Hence the Lakers and Raider caps on their heads

    Who cares what color their skin is? Has anybody tried asking blacks why they don’t try out for baseball? Do you have the stat’s on how many are turned down and why?
    It may just be that the black culture prefers other sports, and there’s nothing wrong with that.

    Could it be that the trickle down policies of the last 30 years have increased the urban ghettoization of blacks which means they don’t have access to space large enough to accommodate baseball diamonds and instead play basketball which can be played in a much smaller space.

    Actually “culluds” played major league baseball in the 19th century. Jim Crow is predominantly a 20th century action. The Negro League occasionally played exhibition games against Major Leagues – and won more games than they lost.

    Ja Ja Ja Doctor Canuck. ¿Si usted puede who was the first Latino to play for a Canadian team and what year did this happen? Gracias.

    I guess the huge proportion of hispanic players is further evidence of racism in baseball.

    Wait wait wait, does that stat not count black Latinos?!?

    Of course it does. Nothing like blatantly manipulating statistics to prove something that isn’t actually true. As a teacher of mine used to say, “Figures don’t lie, but liars can figure.”

    That is why we love sports.
    You get the best players.

    Ir-regardless of whether they are Indian, left-handed, Mexican or schizophrenic, good is good and gets paid accordingly.
