    Racism has been around much longer than America has.

    Imo US is far less xenophobic than most any place in Europe and certainly less than any place in Asia.

    I actually believe that the Racism "problem" got worse when all this sjw and trying to silence people stuff started.

    Keep politics out of sport, in fact get it or if everyone's daily life.
    Yeah like when Jesse Owens went to the Olympics representing America against Nazi Germany. Or when Jackie Robinson was finally allowed to represent a group of people that had been denied access to play major league baseball. Or Muhammad Ali and that whole sacrificing 3 years of his prime boxing years to protest an unjust war. Yeah let's keep the politics out of sports. What a myopic point of view.

    Only thing that changes it is experience dealing with other cultures, one way or another.

    I am 100% down for this debate, as it is an important and defining one as we move forward as a nation to discuss these actual issues plaguing our society.
    I would love to have this conversation and not be called racist for it. The problems in the black community is multifaceted and until we can have an honest discussion about it, the problems will continue to fester and drive calls of racism. Most of the issues isnt rooted in racism, but decisions made by individuals in the black community.

    Why is baseball more American than the sports that don't suck?

    Ding ding, correct.

    When suddenly you start to shame people over any and every minor detail and scream at them that they are racist, or try and put other races / groups on a platform and provide them special treatment, it breeds resentment.

    It's ironic SJW cause more racism than any other group.

    It's pretty important to America, yea. One of the most defining aspects of American culture.

    It's been with the country as long as we have been a country. However, baseball is a concrete thing, racism isn't. It's just a matter of people finally setting it aside like other superstitions.

    Its funny, the several times in this thread alone that i started to bring up this debate, the people screaming WHITES ARE RACIST all went dead silent? Coincidence? I think not
