Jackie Robinson’s Daughter Says MLB Players Afraid

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

https://www.usnews.com/news/sports/articles/2018-04-15/robinsons-daughter-says-mlb-players-reluctant-to-speak-out
sharonrobinsonjackiesdaughterAbove is a story about the great Jackie Robinson’s daughter speaking out about how African American MLB players are scared to speak out like NBA/NFL players. This is very very sad and wrong too.
As you know I have sent you a few emails and texts regarding the lack of diversity when it comes to African Americans in MLB. So far you & the rest of the sports media have just looked at my emails/texts and said “Oh it is just Gordon running his mouth again. He is a black racist”
But I am not a black racist!! I am concerned about a sport in MLB that is only 8% African American. A sports where teams like our Mariners have one or two or even zero African American players. Dee Gordon on our Mariners does not have anyone on the team he can relate.
Concerned when I see basically all white crowds at Safeco and other MLB parks. Concerned when I see a great manager like Dusty Baker being at home or going fishing instead of being a manager of a MLB team. He was fired AFTER ONLY TWO SEASONS IN WHICH HE WON TWO DIVISION TITLES!! This was flat out WRONG readers. The new manager of the Washington Nationals will be a FAILURE if he does not win the division title and then go to the World Series!!!
Concerned that their is only ONE African American manager in MLB. Concerned that most young African American kids cannot name more than three MLB players but can name Curry’s jersey number, shoe size and scoring average etc.
With the sports media in Seattle mainly white they do not have sensitivity and concern or knowledge of the topic I am talking about here. This is just a fact.
I hope a guy like Aaron Levine will use his segment where he speaks out on issues and speak out about how white MLB is in America. here on JR Day. I will be very very disappointed if Levine does not. Because I like Levine because he is not scared to talk about issues like the Sodo/Key Arena situation etc.
Chris Rock spoke out on this in his HBO piece (more of story below)
As a African American I do not see players like CeCe Sabathia or David Price or Matt Kemp or Dee Gordon or Curtis Granderson etc doing commercials on tv like NBA and NFL players and even a PGA player like Ricky Fowler or a tennis player like Serena or a NASCAR driver like Dale Jr and more are doing.
jackie-robinson-1949I am VERY happy that Jackie Robinson’s daughter spoke out and told the truth. Hell I am very happy the Cleveland Indians will stop using Chief Yahoo soon. BUT the hell with soon. THEY SHOULD STOP USING THE RACIST CHIEF YAHOO ON HATS ETC RIGHT NOW!!
Jackie Robinson Day in MLB is a freakin joke!! Mr. Robinson would not be happy if he was here today. Folks I am NOT talking about MLB players from South America like Robinson Cano or Nelson Cruz etc who are “people of color” I am ONLY discussing the lack of African Americans on the field, in the stadiums, as managers and in management. And also why DO YOUNG AFRICAN AMERICAN KIDS TURN TO HOOPS/FOOTBALL BY AGE 12!
The RBI League is not enough and a few new programs. Something is not working when it comes to African Americans and MLB. Something big time wrong here on Jackie Robinson Day.

Hey James Haters Sorry! It Is The Heat and Mavs In The NBA Finals

ARTICLE FROM miamiherald.com (Full story click here)

For all you LeBron haters out their I feel sorry for you. Because his Miami Heat are in the NBA Finals going up against Big Dirk, Seattle’s own Jason Terry and the Dallas Mavericks.

This is what James wanted when he joined forces with D-Wade and Chis Bosh on the Heat. A chance to win a lot of NBA titles. Well in year one of the Big Three they will get their chance.

It is time to face reality. LeBron James is a GREAT player. At 25 he still can get better and better. Can you imagine that sports fans? James getting better? It is going to happen.

Cleveland Cavs fans have to feel terrible to see James in the finals. I know sports radio in Cleveland is buzzing with James haters. You that is the case.

Anyway it will be a real interesting NBA Finals. Who on the Heat will watch Big Dirk? This cat is on FIRE!! He is a 7 footer with a fall away jumper and other types of shots. Do not be surprised to see James watching him.

LeBron can play all five positions on the court. No other NBA player can do that. He is just a great player so all the haters against him need to stop and realize how great of a player he is.

Of course I want to see Seattle native Jason Terry win a ring. So I hope the Dallas Mavs win the NBA title. It will be a great series.   Gordon Curvey.

James Hits 38 In A Rout Against TERRIBLE Cleveland Cavs

ARTICLE FROM chron.com (Full story click here)

Sports fans what I saw tonight has me MAD as a guy who loves the sport of basketball. I was hyped up to watch LeBron James come back to Cleveland to play the Cavs. I was ready. I had my popcorn popped and was ready for a good game. Boy was I let down.

First of all I saw James come on the court smiling. But what really pissed me off was seeing a few of the Cavs players hugging James!! WHAT THE HELL!!! Why on earth would ANYONE on the Cavs want to hug LeBron after this cat left the Cavs last summer. When James left he was saying the Cavs team is not a team I can win a title with so I am cutting out of town.

James toyed with the pathetic Cavs. One time he hit a jumper from about twenty five feet right in front of the Cavs bench and he looked at a few of the Cavs smiling!! What the hell!!

The fans who yelled stuff at James had ZERO effect!!! NONE!!!! It was like a JV team playing against the varsity. Boys against men. I was real upset as a sports fan at the TOTAL lack of effect by the Cleveland Cavs in a game that should have been like their game seven. All Cavs fans should be real upset at the team and even head coach Byron Scott. They let their city down. And let me down as a basketball fan.

Again why would ANY Cavs player hug James before the game or after the game. That was terrible. If I was the owner of the Cavs I would be upset at his team. This kind of crap I saw tonight by the Cavs would NOT have happened back in the day when Rick Mahorn and his bad boy Detroit Pistons was playing.

James would have been laid out when he came into the lane for a dunk like he did tonight. The Cavs did not put a hand on LeBron!!!! What a joke!!! What a joke!!!   Gordon Curvey

James To Play In Miami With D-Wade and Bosh/Lost Respect!

ARTICLE FROM clevelandplaindealer.com (Full story click here)

“One Man’s Opinion” by Gordon Curvey

Well we all know now where LeBron James is going to play and that is with the Miami Heat with Dwayne Wade and Chris Bosh.

In my opinion I am pissed at James. Why? Because #1 he is arrogant. During his stupid hour long show on ESPN he talked in third person. #2 He flat out let the fans down in Cleveland. If I was in Cleveland or his hometown Akron, I would feel tremendously upset at self titled “King James”. “King James” a cat who has ZERO RINGS!!!!  LET ME REPEAT ZERO RINGS!!!!! “King James” my a..!!!!!!

Having a team of Bosh, James and Wade is a cop out. And if they don’t win, I will be happy. I hope the Celtics and Orlando and the Hawks kick the Heats ass!!!

I was a BIG fan of James. But I am not anymore. He thinks he is bigger than the game. His fame has gone to his head. James going to the Heat hurts me as a NBA fan. A NBA junky. I am real bothered by this move by James as a sports fan.

I just heard Chris Brussard on ESPN say James left $20 to $30 million on the table in order to win. Yo Chris…..I DON’T CARE!!!! i HAVE LOST RESPECT FOR THE SO CALLED “King James”.

Well Cleveland fans I guess be happy you still have a NBA to cheer on even without James. Our Seattle Sonics left town after forty one years here. We don’t have a team to cheer on at all. But as the late 2Pac rapped…..Yo Cleveland sports fans KEEP YOUR HEAD UP!!!!
