Is The Barry Bonds Saga Racist?

I just think that the whole Barry Bonds thing just highlights the hypocrisy of American sports.

They have suggested putting an asterisk besides his record when he breaks the home run record.

But they seem to forget that if he did take drugs it was never illegal and it was common amongst all the players.

And I want someone to tell me whether on a level playing field Bond would still not be the top slugger in the Majors.

And the hallowed Babe Ruth- I wonder if they ever considered putting an asterisk to his record as he never played against the great players of the Negro Leagues.

I say white ppl are scandalous

I agree that it's totally unfair.

On another note, we all know Barry used the clear and the creamflaxseed oil.

Jr. would've been easier for them to accept. Non-threatening attitude, sweet swing and ever sweet smile. Unfortunately, after so many injuries we'll never find out. Barry never gave a damn about nobody from day one and that really pisses them off. A-Rod is now been promoted to surpass Barry. I don't mind A-Money surpassing Barry as long as he remains a Bronx Bomber.

The dominant white culture has a way of sticking it to minorities especially blacks if they see an opportunity. The white reaction obviously has racial undertone, even if there are legitimate concerns about Barry's use of the "Clear" and "Cream".

Same thing can be attributed to the white reaction to Vick's bone-headed relationship to dog breeding that has led to the ugly incident of animal abuse.

The racism often comes out in not giving this guys the benefit of doubt in the face of troubling allegations that are somehow related to them.

Lance Armstrong was accused of doping. He got the benefit of doubt and has pretty much escaped unscathed. Although not much concrete evidence surfaced to support the claim. May be the controlling white culture didn't find it necessary to dig as deep as they would have, had he been black.

Exactly. Remember it was when Bonds started getting close to especially Babe Ruth's record that these allegations gained serious credit.

WHen Mark Mcgwire was setting the single season record no one dey talk anything o.

By the way don't u think its simply unjust that its not Ken Griffey that is chasing this record.

With a pure swing like that, it would have been well deserved.
