I thought of this sleepy forum now. I was reminded of the non-issue of "sexism: not enough female jazz players"..You can review it here, I'm sure.
The 1st topic on WDWS AM "Penny" talk is the remarkable stat that blacks in MLB indicates they have gone from 59% of the player total in the 60s to only 9% today! NO one, so far, has claimed any sort of racism, interestingly enough.
The speculation is that basketball has drawn blacks away. Someone briefly mentioned a Michael Jordan influence. Someone said it is one of the more expensive sports to play as a kid. (hmmm, hockey and golf are, too) Someone mentioned youth baseball can be very boring, waiting forever to make a play, etc;
So, I shall toss this bottle out, and perhaps see if there are any remarks,,,,,if any,,,,if I am once again reminded of this forum at some unknown date. Till then, enjoy life. You're all still alive. The soldiers are not parked in tanks outside your door, aimed and ready to capture you or, preferably, blow you to smithereens. But I won't attempt to 'prove' this is the 'truth' because I'd probably expostulate by saying that the media, at least some of the media, would Shirley let us know! But I won't dare say such a thing! That could open the Buzz/Penn/etc; can of worms of how we sheeple do not know a dang thing!!!!! (pardon my epithet, but, even sheeple have 1st ammendment rights)
Say, how 'bout them Cubbies! 'u'
