Soon there will be no escape from politics. People watch sports to get away from politics... and now the left is bringing it into it all, and nobody wants it

Unrelated, but I assume you're with a small/medium sized business?

My main interest and escape are video games.

And I can tell you there is no escape from it. Everything is politics now. Even if you are into model painting through Warhammer there is no escape.

Off the top of my head, I think if you want to escape you may be able to go fishing. But if you go fishing with someone they will probably talk about it.

In his post, he complained about there being "too few black players." Pro sports are based on performance. There isn't a SINGLE team that would pass on an elite player because he was black. There isn't a single elite black player that was blocked by a mediocre white guy. That is such a garbage argument to make.

Beat_to_Quarters 19 points ago (edited)

Whose fault is it that there aren't enough black players in baseball? Nobody is blocking athletes. It's just not that fucking popular with black people. Are you going to force black people to like the sport of baseball more? There's already been a general waning interest in baseball and they've been worried about it the past few years. That's why this deal to get playing again being so frustrating is even more of a complete fuck up. It makes them look like they're just shooting themselves. They could have been the first major pro league back and they would have had ALL the eyes watching. But they fumbled that horribly and now they're going to only play 60 games and have to compete with the NBA and NHL at the same time. What is the magical number of black players in baseball where it becomes an acceptable percentage by the way?

10
MakePizzaGreatAgain 10 points ago

In his post, he says there aren't enough black people because the white rules of baseball discourage players from celebrating home runs.

He also complains about a lack of funding for youth baseball programs but doesn't commit any of his millions up support them.

7
Beat_to_Quarters 7 points ago

How is it the rules and not a baseball culture thing? If you gloat on a homerun, the pitcher throws the ball at your face at your next at bat for rubbing it in. The pitcher is not protected by any rule for doing that. What does he want, choreographed dances after every homerun? lmao. When you hit a game winning walkoff, your whole team mobs the plate waiting for you.

Mexicola1976 13 points ago (edited)

I suppose he's talking about American blacks- fucking idiot. Has he ever considered that black people growing up prefer football, basketball, and track? There doesn't need to be equal representation in everything. Especially if it's forced.

5
remember1776 5 points ago

Perhaps he wants MLB's 'race ratios' to be more like the NBA.

He doesn't want a good representation like the current state of the MLB.

He wants black supremacy.

3
hello123456 3 points ago

blacks obviously have a genetic advantage when it comes to running speed it stands to reason they have a disadvantage in other areas. People tend to only pay attention to the 'track' side of track and field but the 'field' side is dominated by whites and it's because a lot of the events are based around simple physical strength. Whites tend to dominate strength sports in general like weight lifting and wrestling and strong-men competitions. For baseball a lot of it is about "core strength" and for whatever reason, probably because they tend to be a bit more top-heavy, blacks kind of suck at raw core strength. There are other things that go into hitting and throwing but core strength is pretty reliable for both and the biggest reason whites do so well at baseball.

BurgerChef90 3 points ago

Yeah, if you want more black players in the MLB, encourage black kids to play baseball instead of football where they're destined to end up with brain injuries.

Baseball is not as appealing to blacks are football or basketball are.

And you're right, no team will pass on an elite player cause he was black. If Aaron Judge went up to a team and asked if they wanted him, they'd say yes in a heartbeat. They wouldn't pass on him cause he's black.

Ian Desmond is just looking for some relevance, since he's not been relevant for a few years.

MLB takes a lot of years of working your ass off to get better to make it to the show. A large majority of players don't make it to the MLB. It takes a lot of work, and a lot of patiences.

They are also destroying the cosmetics industry with nasty drag queen make-up artists like Jeffree Starr and other male make-up artists that have full faces of make-up with facial hair, as well as the fashion industry with obese and/or trans models. Every single cosmetic or clothing company I buy products from parrots the BLM and Pride messages now. It’s impossible to get away from the virtue signaling.

Every traditional institution has been or is currently being destroyed by the Marxists at this point.

6
TotesNotKaren 6 points ago

This is why I unfollowed everyone makeup related on Instagram. I spent enough time and energy learning techniques that I can happily never pay attention again.

The problem is they’ve also taken over all the crafts as well. Garment sewing has always been left leaning, but then they came for quilting. Knitting is totally lost, along with most fiber arts. Spinning is safe-ish for now, but the recent weaving trend has put a expiration on that.

Certain areas of gardening, and woodworking seems safe still, but we’ll see how long it lasts.

At some point, we’re going to have to put firm ‘no off-topic/politics’ rules on forums or groups we create if we want to take back some of these areas.

Chinese market

This is what I don't understand. The Chinese market is growing, and they have increasing influence in Hollywood. But the Chinese don't exactly love black people. Africans in China are treated terribly. Why would the Chinese be supportive of BLM? Just because it divides America?

2
Beat_to_Quarters 2 points ago

Yes. One of their pols was tweeting sarcastic shit about how the U.S. has horrible human rights abuses because of police brutality. They will actively push race bait agendas to take attention off from their own civil rights atrocities like we have no say in pointing out Hong Kong abuses. The Chinese government could not give two shits about black people or any American. It's just useful unrest.

Not watching as much sports could be a blessing in disguise. My team is going to suck this year anyways.

The Rockies have been trying to opt out of Desmond since the day he signed his contract.

Every one of these institutions that falls is a blow to America and a win for the Marxists.

How rich, this guy is trash ball. Send him to the minor league in China.

You know, I think this is really the way to go. This player has made the choice to stop playing (without salary?) and I, for one, am happy to see him go. Frees up space on the team for America loving players.
I suspect he started whining about wanting to kneel, and his boss told him to stifle the impulse or get out.
If that’s what happened, then this little CNN rant about him is a spin. Good riddance...no one cares if he plays or not.

all u gotta do is turn the tv off and not go to the games and sportsball will implode. their salaries are way too high to withstand a drop in viewers. and when the salaries go down the superstars will be pissed.

All I see is POC members of sports that people don't really know outside that sport fishing for sponsors.

Talking about social injustice when he probably makes a couple of million a year and faced no hardship getting to that position.

I'm just holding out hope that they don't fuck up hockey. With the Canadian influence I'm not too confident.

Sucks because the MLB was the last hold out from sports being combined with politics.

It's really going to suck for the MLB because they were already one of the lower ranked sports in viewership and now combine that with bullshit virtue signaling and you've got a sport that is going to have a much harder time coming back and recovering relative to the others.
