I take exception to the recent ESPN commercial on Black History Month where the young black little league player says other "white" teams won't shake their hands after games. Considering it was a racist ESPN executive who coined the phase "Chink in the armor", referring to Jeremy Lin, I find it completely hypocritical and racist ESPN would attack little league teams who are not all black. It is clear what ESPN is insinuating...? If there is one area that blacks are not discriminated against, it is in sports! ESPN is so out of touch with reality, they are a joke. Love to hear an educated response from an ESPN spokesman defending this bullshit commercial....I highly doubt any of them have the "balls" to defend this commercial. Continue to keeping your heads in the sand.

Posting from LSU forum:
...It shows a minority kid in a baseball uniform talking about most of the kids on his team are black and that sometimes the white teams won't even shake their hands but that's okay because they still don't have it as bad as Jackie Robinson did.

What a crock of shit, is this where we are in 2012, I would bet a million dollars there isn't a place in America where these kids hands wouldn't get shook, it's a made up lie. A work of fiction, what message are they trying to send here?

Stupid suits at ESPN.....love Colin Cowherd on TV, so in their wisdom, they take him off.....or on occasionally.....guess, we'll just watch less often....
