my contribution found in the NYT of the day.

" When the mayor of Cooperstown, N.Y., Jeff Katz, searched for an appropriate street to dedicate in Bud Fowler’s memory, he decided on one that led to Doubleday Field, the quaint brick stadium a baseball’s throw from the Hall of Fame. An old survey of the village indicated that the street had not been named, Katz said.

Like the street itself, Fowler had gone largely unnoticed, despite being the first African-American known to have played for a white professional baseball team. That happened when Fowler pitched for the Lynn, Mass., Live Oaks of the International Association in 1878."
"The so-called gentlemen’s agreement among team owners in 1887 — which barred blacks from playing on white pro clubs, until Branch Rickey signed Robinson to a contract in 1945 — can be traced to Fowler."

He went on playing both in integrated teams refusing this ban and in all-Black team.

He died in poverty in 1913.

It was time for this Black player to be honoured.

And he did, so what's your point? and BTW, baseball players all made very little money back then.

These guys love to use nanny state, welfare (which was begun to feed white meen), AA which was meant to force equal and fair opportunity had been coopted and used by WHITE WOMEN. White women are the true users and benefactors of Affirmative Action, but white folk won't admit it or acknowledge it, better to keep it as a club to use against Black Americans.
It burns white ass to know Blacks really are equal to them and just as savvy. Better to try to continue to marginalize them, though it doesn't work and they are failing miserably. What scaring the shit out of them is the fact that within the next few years...THEY are going to be the minorities. LMAO.

There is much to be learned about African history and your African heritage African Americans.

You basically don't know nothing yet. You only have just begun, to (re)-discover your history and heritage.

Don't let these troll, aspecially the white ones fool you.

That's, you don't know anything yet. A double negative turns into a positive. You might want to have checked that first before you talk about people knowing or not knowing things. But at least it looks like you are paying attention to the topix spell checker, so that's good.

It's correct sir.

I would add that this knowledge should become universal : all people have to know better about Black history.

I still can't figure out why you have to take the extra effort to write "a whiteboi" on every single one of your posts. Why do you have to make sure that you tell everyone you are white on every single one of your posts? It makes no sense, unless you were actually black.

He IS black. Why do you think he puts whiteboi on the end of all his posts? if he was white then he wouldn't need to. The only reason he does it is to continue his little charade. Very childish in my opinion, but he IS a negro.

Which explains it.

Well of course I knew that, and any common sense person can see through it as plain as glass. But I was hoping to get HIS explanation for it, which you and I both know he will never give. And we know why.

But the childish part of it is the only meaningful thing to focus on at this point, because that's the only reason that a child would think that others would actually believe him, because he himself is a child and children think you would believe the same little masquerades that they would. I sincerely hope he's just a child, or else that would be very disturbing to realize he's not.

Pick any near bankrupt municipality and you'll discover an Ethopian in the Fuel Supply at all levels of the administration. The NOPD (negro on pay day), mentality results in the americans with dark skin not having the capacity to honorably govern other americans with dark skin. But, we must be patient with our baboon cousins. Traits like lying and stealing will require another century to begin being bread out of the majority of our dark skin americans

I personally wouldn't be surprised if it's not a child. Negroes ARE like children. They've been pushing the race card for decades, and still don't understand that nobody falls for that sh!t. It's just another temper tantrum as a little child would do.

But they keep doing it. No embarrassment, no shame, no dignity, or self respect.

Just like an 8 year old.

That is why it is absolutely NECESSARY to expand Black history - far beyond the history of slavery - and make it mandatory.
Not only in the USA but in all the Americas and Europe.

It's only boring for whitey and the KKKlub.

It's boring as hell to everyone. It's nothing but whining that any human being eventually gets sick of hearing. it's time for negroes as yourself to face the facts.
You're history is all about failure to live in any society without you being at the bottom because you're animal behavior puts you there.
Then's there's idiots like you that will try anything in absolute desperation as claiming to be a white boi(that's a hoot!!!!) when everyone knows you are not. Clowns of the black race. And the most funniest part of it all, is that you just don't get it.
An original and not fake white boi.
