I believe most people agree and what happens to him is between him
and his employer. However, my objection is the outrageous hyprocrasy
of the various liberal groups demanding the Braves bend to their
will. When was the last time the NAA(L)CP was demanding the head of
Farrakahn for inciting blacks to violence? Where were all those
liberals when Algore accused the Republicans of murder? I heard no
call for his resignation. These seem a lot more dangerous then
something some ball player says who has no power to influence
anything.
