Jackie Robinson Day: A Mixed Message On The Plantation in MLB by Harold Bell

The late NBA great Red Auerbach said, “Jackie Robinson may be America’s greatest all-around athlete in history!”

Black Minority Owners in pro sports are nothing but window dressing!

On April 15, 2021, MLB celebrated Jackie Robinson Day for 18th since its inception in 2004. Hundreds of players paraded around the playing field wearing his trademark number 42. My question, is baseball integrated? Looking at MLB today it is nobody’s success story, if you take Jackie’s number 42 and let only Black Americans wear it on the field of play on that day honoring Jackie, only then would you have an accurate count of how many Black Americans are on MLB teams.  April 15th has been a cover-up for the lack of Black Americans playing in the league. Today there are Less than 8%.  

MLB is the second richest pro sports’ league in America, but they have the First Lady of MLB, Jackie’s wife Rachel on hold while they try to locate financial support to open the Jackie Robinson Museum in New York City. She has been on hold for close to 10 years. Ms. Rachel Robinson is approaching 100 years old—-MLB has to stop faking. 

When I asked ESPN’s “Pardon the Interruption” co-host Michael Wilbon about the museum and what the problem was, he said, “Harold I am meeting Commissioner Bud Selig next week and I will pose that question to him?” Talking about famous last words, that was Wilbon five years ago!

The late great Hank Aaron was not a “Happy Camper” with the racism and The Good Old Boys that still run the league.
