I am willing to complain that there are no unathletic people on the Astros, but I have a feeling my argument would not hold much water since fitness isn't a skin tone issue....

I just said that in the other thread. This is really getting out of hand. Everything in sports is rascist now. The NBA dress code, not enough blacks in baseball, a coach gets fired because he is black. STFU!

They made the WS. I think they know who is best for their club.

Well if you want to look at some of those dominicans could claim as being black, example Tavarres (or however you say it) because that is where all the slaves where sold in the carribean. So they probably all have black in them.

Look if they wanted to win the world series they would have signed a black player. But they were fine with just winning the NL.

Honestly, is it at all surprising? When I played Little League there were a few teams that 1, maybe even 2, black kids but most of the teams were all-white.

It is a cultual thing when it comes to little league....the inner cities don't have little league for the most part. Most kids parents there don't have the money that it takes to keep a kid in team sports so they don't play or have as many teams as in the burbs....when african americans get to high school and college is when they get the most opportunities to play team sports. It is a shame really that this country and all the rich people don't do more to go to the inner cities to increase activities in organized sports programs for underprivliged kids of all races....but that is just my opinion....

I have honestly never noticed that there are no blacks on the Astros

And amazingly, the entirely white team LOST! Wouldn't that make the NAACP whackos happy that a team that had blacks won? Niggaz complain over anything, damn, send 'em all back to Africa, or just store 'em all in the cellar of "Blacknificant Books".

If you grow up in a 600 square foot project tenement are you going to have enough room and people to play a game of baseball, or to take a basketball and practice dribbling

No, he is latino. Dominican to be exact. There are a lot of dominican bb players - their skin color may make them look black but they are latino.
