More Than Enough MLB Umpire Scandal
MORE THAN ENOUGH MLB UMPIRE SCANDAL STOP THE OUTRAGE
” DAMN RIGHT I’M A BIGOT “ ( WE PUT THESE WORDS IN HIS MOUTH )
MLB Umpire Mike Winters
is NOT the Disease he is
just a Symptom of
The fact is he is the “logical” (sic) out-growth ( as in cancer ) of an MLB Umpire corps of 70 that includes ONLY 2 African Americans. Winters and all the others on 13 MLB Umpire Crews all except the 2 crews that each have ONE African American on them NEVER see a Black Umpire all season long..
What we are discussing of course is Mike Winters being suspended for the rest of the regular season – Big Deal – for attacking the Padres’ Milton Bradley with what is referred to in “polite” society as a Racial Epitaph otherwise known gingerly as Profanity. In reality something like ” you God damn NIGGER.”
During a recent game. in San Diego
But just as Bill Belichick got away with “murder” so will Mike Winters. The White Establishment in Sports whatever the Sport “circle the wagons” whenever one of their own is in Trouble. Sure there are exceptions. Few and far between.
AND NOT ONE OTHER MEDIA SOURCE NOT ONE other than BASN will note – as we have in the Box so many times – the OBVIOUS point that the Winters incident raises. The make-up of the MLB Umpire Corps.
It is a national disgrace but even
African American “leaders”
And get this House Negro angle the MLB official; directly responsible for the MLB Umpires is Bob Watson an AFRICAN American who in all his years now in that position has done NOTHING to change the mix of MLB Umpires.
There were TWO Black Umpires when he arrived on the scene. There are TWO Black Umpires today. And there will be TWO ( or less ) Black Umpires years from now among SEVENTY Umpires if NOTHING is done. One assigned to the American League the other to the National League.
TOKENISM at its Worst
It was 19 years after Jackie Robinson entered the Major Leagues that the FIRST African American was named an MLB Umpire. Years AFTER all the MLB teams were at least minimally integrated.
Commissioner Bud Selig
and ALL the MLB Brass
and ALL MLB owners
Mike Winters will
be back next season
as though NOTHING
happened and there will again
be just TWO Black Umpires
as there always is among the 70
yet one more time follow
