    CONSIDERING THAT THERE'S A BLACK MAN SERVING AS PRESIDENT....
    CONSIDERING THE COSMETIC-FACED APOLOGY FOR SLAVERY.....
    AND CONSIDERING THAT CHEATING IN MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL IS NOW AS POPULAR AS COCA-COLA........HMMM

    A FEW WHITE MEN......WHO APPEAR TO BE SENTIMENTAL AND IDEALISTIC , JUST NOW DECIDED THAT HONORING SATCHEL PAIGE , BASEBALL'S MOST TALENTED PLAYER IN HISTORY........IS LONG OVERDUE.......

    AND GUESS WHAT ?......ONE OF THEM THINKS THAT A PITCHING TROPHY IN SATCHEL'S NAME SHOULD BE HELD TO A HIGHER STANDARD THAN......JACKIE ROBINSON'S ROOKIE OF THE YEAR TROPHY.....BECAUSE HE JUST NOW FIGURED THAT WITHOUT SATCHEL , JACKIE WOULD HAVE NEVER HAD THE OPPORTUNITY TO BREAK THE COLOR BARRIER IN BASEBALL.....ALSO......THIS SAME MAN SAYS THAT SATCHEL'S TROPHY SHOULD REPLACE CY YOUNGS.......BECAUSE CY YOUNG REPRESENTS A DIFFERENT ERA IN BASEBALL.....

    I GUESS NOW WE ARE SUPPOSED TO BE......ELATED....GRATEFUL.....PROUD.....RELIEVED....????????

    Hmmmm. I say, unlikely.

    I think they really already figger they did him a favor by inducting him into the baseball Hall Of Fame.


    Likewise, the U.S. Postal Service's deciding committee has had it "under consideration" for YEARS to honor the Tuskegee Airmen with a stamp.

    They aint got it yet. :-/

    And if they give them one, then they gotta give the Nisei veterans one too.


    (I think they're just waiting for all of them to die.)


    Satchel died in 1982. So, it took 27 years after his death to even consider honoring his career in this way.


    Well, I guess the wheels turn, just oh-so slowly. :-/

    WARRIOR,

    Great question, great post and great alignment of facts you have presented here Brother WARRIOR, so, let me bring the optimism, lol. Yes, it is very likely that they will, at least Cleveland honors Satchel, along with the black family of brothers and sisters that are aware. One of my sons was a pitcher, and we called him Satchel Paige, for real. On the movie, the Invite Pitch stole the show:).

    SISTER CHERRYBLOSSOM : YES INDEED....SLOW IS THEIR WAY....BUT WHEN YA THINK ABOUT IT , WHEN A GROUP OF PEOPLE USE " COWARDICE " AS THE GLUE TO HOLD UP THE FOUNDATION OF THEIR RULES.......ITS HARD TO EXPECT THEM TO DO RIGHT BY ANY OUTSIDER THEY KNOW IS FAR BETTER THAN THEY COULD EVER HOPE TO BE....

    BROTHER OLDIESMAN : I HEAR YA BROTHER.....ITS AMAZING HOW SO MANY RACIST WHITE PEOPLE ARE SO QUICK TO CHOOSE THE WHOLE IGNORANT CONCEPT OF THOUGHT...I MEAN ACTUALLY CHOOSING TO BE IGNORANT....LIKE THE WAY THEY BOUGHT INTO THE WHOLE " TERRORISM " B/S.....AND THE DEFINITION OF TERRORISM IS AVAILABLE IN EVERY DICTIONARY...."Terrorism is the intentional use or threat to use violence against civilians and non-combatants "in order to achieve political goals"

    WHEN ONE CHOOSES IGNORANCE......THAT MEANS DANGER FOR ANYONE ELSE WHO DOESN'T CHOOSE IGNORANCE.....

    BROTHER CLYDE : I HAVE BEEN TO CLEVELAND SEVERAL TIMES ...AND YES , THE WHOLE AREA HONORS HIM WELL.....AND THEY REALLY HONOR HIM IN KANSAS CITY , AT THE NEGRO LEAGUE MUSEUM......I WILL ALWAYS CHERISH MY ELDER COUSINS STORIES OF WATCHING HIM PITCH.......THANK YOU BRO CLYDE...

    nah it's not gonna happen...
    paige was the greatest baseball player of all time in my opinion
    but for white america to recognize that would be equivalent
    to them giving the african americans today reparations.....

    one love
