We are at a point in time where black Major League Baseball (MLB) players calling themselves “the new Jackie Robinson” (first black player in the MLB) are then teasingly called ‘Jackie’ by a white player; the black player cries and says his feelings are hurt, so the white player who called him “Jackie” – as a joke – is suspended, fined, and called a racist.

Welcome to life in 20202 America, where black privilege dominates every sector of our society. Even the MLB. [Josh Donaldson Suspended for Calling White Sox’ Tim Anderson ‘Jackie’: Tony La Russa said Donaldson referring to Tim Anderson as Jackie Robinson was racis t., NBC Chicago, May 23, 2022]:

MLB has suspended Josh Donaldson one game for calling Tim Anderson “Jackie,” as in Jackie Robinson, during Saturday’s game.

“There is no dispute over what was said on the field,” said Michael Hill, MLB senior VP for on-field operations in a statement. “Regardless of Mr. Donaldson’s intent, the comment he directed toward Mr. Anderson was disrespectful and in poor judgment, particularly when viewed in the context of their prior interactions. In addition, Mr. Donaldson’s remark was a contributing factor in a bench-clearing incident between the teams, and warrants discipline.”

The comment led to a heated discussion between Yasmani Grandal and Donaldson later in the game, which in turn caused both the White Sox and Yankees benches to clear.

“It happened in the firstー the first time he got onー and I spared him that time,” Anderson said after Saturday’s game. “Then it happened again, and it was just uncalled for. We don’t need to be playing like that.”

Donaldson didn’t deny the allegations, but tried to brush it aside as a joke, per the Athletic.

Clearly, Anderson and the rest of the White Sox didn’t find the comment very funny.

“I think that’s very sad,” Dallas Keuchel said after hearing about Donaldson’s comment. “There’s no need, or room for that. Anywhere.”

“This game went through a period of time where a lot of those comments were made, and I think we’re way past that,” said Grandal. “It’s just unacceptable. I just thought it was a low blow, and I want to make sure I’ve got my team’s back. There’s no way that you’re allowed to say something like that, that like I said, is just unacceptable.”

White Sox reliever Joe Kelly was on the radio when news of the suspension came down, and he was incredulous at the one-game penalty.

“One game? I got eight games for making a silly face at Carlos Correa,” Kelly said via 670TheScore. “I got six games for someone attacking me on the mound.”

Call this whole episode another reminder of black privilege.

Josh Donaldson did nothing wrong.

    Typical. Some worthless jig (with a typically overinflated ego) names heself da knew jackie robinson – and then whines when a White guy calls him jackie – while fellow Whites then pathetically take the jig’s side. How any normal person cannot see these creatures are nothing more than pieces of society busting dogsh** is beyond me.

  2. I loathe the c—sucker Branch Rickey. A “Christian”, he felt powerful and self righteous in his crusade to bring in Robinson. We are lectured that Rickey is a great hero,Robinson is Christlike. Gimme a break.
    I suppose integration of sports,like a certain number of white women being raped,and white people being assaulted/ murdered,is an inevitable outgrowth of having Africans here.
    I would’ve much preferred keeping us seperate,and letting the Negro Leagues prosper,though that would result in another inevitable outcome,that of the League coming under the control of the ((( holy ones.)))
    With diversity,you can’t win.

  3. The whole brouhaha involves a satiric comment aimed at puncturing the vanity bubble of a professional baseball player. The remark was clever–somewhat snarky–but perfectly legitimate. One huge problem: the snark came from a White man and landed on the ears of a (protected) Black man. Bad!

    Whites can no long ‘dis’ negros due to the ominous threat of (white) racism and the ‘legacy of slavery’. That’s Rule #1. (Actually, it’s Rule #2; since Rule #1 is more central to our new ethno-racial hierarchy.) And Rule #1 (the most important rule) stipulates that all generic whites must never arouse anger or discomfort in any member of the Jewish community for the unforgivable offense of, say, doubting the Official Holocaust narrative or questioning Israel’s ‘special relationship’ with our bought-and-paid-for ‘leaders’ in Washington. That’s the biggie. It’s sacred. So do not touch!

    Yes, all Jewish narratives are now sacred. Soon, they will be protected by law under criminal penalty. So watch what you say, white boy.

    Rule #2 (mandating White deference to the descendants of slaves) is actually diversionary filler. This is undeniably true since the American negro has long been a Jewish battering ram. But this new mandatory (White) deference to negro sensitivity serves as a reminder (to Whites) that the US is no longer a country (created) by, for, or about European-derived Whites. That way-back era is way over, dude. God Bless Israel and the Jewish people!

    Whites are now (unofficially) second-class citizens, since they are all guilty of innate (White) ‘racism’ and (potential) anti-Semitism (which is already a crime in Canada and much of Europe.) So shape up or shut up.

    As for the baseball field incident, what we have on display is another cultural lesson involving a speech infraction that reminds Whites (courtesy of the new Woke establishment) that the right to Free Speech no longer applies to them.

    Is this a great country or what!?

    Sounds to me like the kind of good natured ribbing you have with someone that you respect and think is on friendly terms with you.

  6. MLB clearly needs Safe Spaces.

    (“The term safe space refers to places “intended to be free of bias, conflict, criticism, or potentially threatening actions, ideas, or conversations”. The term originated in LGBT culture but has since expanded to be specific to any marginalized minority as a place where marginalized individuals to come together to communicate regarding their shared experiences.”

    “Sounds to me like the kind of good natured ribbing you have with someone that you respect and think is on friendly terms with you.

    Yup–and he gets to apologize for “not respecting a black man” when he was actually trying to respect a black man.

    This is how the Spanish Inquisition worked–the heretics were the folks trying to take their religion at its word–ya know all that “love your neighbor” stuff.

    “The only way to win is not to play.”

    If there are black folks in your workplace do not engage with them. Pretend they are lions and tigers on the loose and you will be fine.

    Just another example of how our rulers have turned whites into second class citizens.

  13. They still have negroes playing MLB?

    In another few years the ratings will hit the zero point energy level and we can stop caring. I have seen more stories about Russell Wilson going back to Seattle the first week of the NFL season in four months’ time than I have for the most awesome on field baseball performance this year. In fact I have no idea what the most awesome on field baseball performance this year was.

    Anybody want to suggest one? Can anybody think of one?

  14. Jameson says:

    They should call him Jacqueline next time.

    • LOL: Hibernian
  15. I’m pretty sure Jackie was called a lot worse names back in the day. This story is a case where a groid messed up his “looks at muh” moment, then got really mad because he got made fun of and disrespected in public, after he compared himself to a legend in the sport. This is nothing more than a mild case of ball busting between peers in a competitive sport, the fact it’s even an issue or national story is the real problem.

    ‘black people have come a long way since the dark days of slavery and colonialism.’…does africa 2022 count?
    a long way from ‘negros in negroland’ [factual book on what africans are like, 1800s]. ?

  17. How’s calling them
    Jackie racist? I thought calling them
    the ( N ) word which they deservingly and rightly earned to be named
    every day considering with all the articles, blogs, vlogs not just from this
    web site but other web sites that are doing the same thing like this one is
    doing. not to mention there are magnitudes of video sites like,,,, that show these worthless douche’s parasitical cretins getting caught on CCTV, Security camera’s an on cell phone videos doing crime. I don’t think the democrats and blacks don’t seem to realize that in Cyber space has unlimited
    videos of this certain race that commits way more crime’s than any other group on earth.

    • Agree: Mr. Rational, AnalogMan
  21. Why is it “racist” to compare a Black player to the great Jackie Robinson? Because a White did it. Back in the day, Black blues musicians used to name themselves after players they admired, as in “Sonny Boy Williamson II.” What’s changed since then? Blacks becoming oversensitive crybabies. Even if he was offended (why?) the little wimp should have manned up and kept quiet.

    • Agree: Mr. Rational

    Speaking of “racists”, I have been reading about how (((they))) are trying to discourage racist and homophobic assocations with monkey pox.

    Like AIDS, it is all about monkeys, negroes, and homos that are the main players.

  23. AceDeuce says:

    This is a ridiculous (but predictable) incident. The whole “Jackie Robinson” thing is a bunch of Emmitt Till level BS. The usual suspects have ginned up Robinson into some great hero who suffered unspeakably. All a bunch of horsecrap.

    Note how the rectal tongue bathing of that particular negro by YT only went into overdrive several decades later. Any sooner, and there’d be plenty of pushback from people who were alive for the truth.

    The usual msm “description” of jogger offenders (2 boys and 2 girls between 12 and 14 years old). The only good thing is that WE all know the race if it is left out. I read somewhere, maybe here in a comment, that they will next deem the terms “teens” and “youths” as raycissss!

  26. bruce county says:

    Read elsewhere on MSN news… You have to be a “Jackie to use the word Jackie”.. Jackie is now the in the exclusive domain of the saggin.

  27. Augustus says:

    I think the whole “Jackie” thing is really hilarious. The White Sox as a team should have been laughing themselves to death. We live in a dying multi/culti society that is suicidal, yet individuals take themselves far too seriously. Professional athletes have reduced themselves to snowflake Karens.

  28. Hibernian says:

    This is how the Spanish Inquisition worked–the heretics were the folks trying to take their religion at its word–ya know all that “love your neighbor” stuff.

    Then there was our Mother Country where the Heretics were in charge, and dissolved the Monasteries, laid waste to Ireland, etc.

  29. Anymike says:

    How about looking at the story strictly from the vantage of baseball reasons? In the JAWS metric, Jackie Robinson is rated the 10th best second baseman in baseball history. His only counterparts and rivals at his position during his tenure in professional baseball were Red Schoendienst and Nellie Fox. Both of the latter, like Robinson, have been elected to the Baseball Hall of Fame.

    Tim Anderson is a good player. He has won one batting title and might be having his career year in 2022. He might be the best offensive player in the game at his position right now. However, he is presently is rated by JAWS as the 137th best shortstop in baseball history. His position in this algorithmic-based rating system will go up before he retires, but it will never go up anywhere near Robinson’s rating.

    Anderson is the one who opened his trap and compared himself to Robinson when there is no comparison just based on baseball reasons. He is due a little needling over it. For baseball reasons.

    To put a bottom line on it, I knew Jackie Robinson and you’re no Jackie Robinson. That’s just for baseball reasons. Not for any other.

  30. Mr. Grey says:

    Jason Whitlock has a great commentary on this episode. It was done before Donaldson was suspended. The segment is titled “The Left rewards black men for being weak and fragile.”.

  31. @Stonewall Jackson's ghost

    juneteenth ice cream

    I couldn’t resist and kept trying to figure out what exactly was so “triggering” about Juneteenth ice cream.

    As best as I could tell the biggest issue was that Walmart called it part of the “Great Value” brand instead of calling it “Royal” and putting a crown on it.

    They thought they were marketing it to average black folks but didn’t realize that the Woke Whites make the rules–and the rules are that blacks are the new royalty–and anyone who does not bend the knee to the kingdom must be canceled.
