Re: MLB targeting June return?

Apparently a statue of Lincoln paid for by actual people who were freed by the Emancipation Proclamation and dedicated by black abolitionist Frederick Douglass is racist.

Re: MLB targeting June return?

Granted the US doesn’t have the virus under control like Europe but their pro soccer leagues have been playing for a while now - some up to a month. If those leagues can figure it out so can MLB. Europe has no more control than US. https://www.theguardian.com/world/2020/jun/24/west-germany-district...

The irony of statements like Hill's is that it is the same idiotic, faulty logic that other racists use to justify their beliefs. Even if a single white racist had snuck into Wallace's garage and placed a noose there, using this single person's action to degrade a group of millions of fans as Hill d...

I am all good. Turns out it was really neither, and I am glad. It wasn't some racist threatening Wallace, and it wasn't someone faking it to help the protest cause either.

He was okay with Bulls particularly coming straight from high school. He would make Knicks hall of shame though.

My favorite statue tear down is Matthias Baldwin, one of the nation's fiercest abolitionists 30 years prior to the Civil War, who developed arguably the nation's most efficient locomotive engines, but because of his abolitionist stature, the Confederates refused to buy them. Well done. /sarcasm At ...

Things are getting away from MLB. All along, the owners, because they're idiots, wanted as short a season as possible. So they're delaying any decision until there's only time left for the short season. Well now you have Fauci stepping in to say he doesn't recommend playing into October, and that M...

We may never know if protesters spread COVID since contract tracers have been specifically instructed not to ask if infected people were at the protests.
