geez, all of a sudden you find yourself on a team with a common goal and it doesn't matter what skin color your teammates are.

I think the racists are afraid of that seeing beyond the barrier.

I probably didn't phrase that as well as I could have but trust me, my heart is in the proper place.

Basketball always seemed to be a bit better in that regard, not only due to the players but also because of guys like Popovich.
Then I'm sure Nascar surprised many and I wouldn't have expected Baseball to follow what the Basketball teams started.
