I've noticed something really disturbing with the Boston Red Sox: they are 98 percent white and have zero African Americans! Really? Was this a conscience movement of sorts, or did this happen by default because the lack of African Americans in the game?
Some say, "but they do have blacks, look at Ortiz, and previous to that, Manny and others." But the problem is that they aren't African Americans, but they are black.
If the Red Sox aren't careful, they'll start to resemble the Bruins or hockey in general, where there are almost no blacks, period. Will MLB soon turn into the NHL, and eventually start losing viewers? It just can't be a good thing when a sport starts not to resemble "real America," 22 percent Latino, 15 percent black. Just try looking at a hockey game on television.
