Orioles Negro CF Adam Jones: No Protests in MLB Because ‘Baseball Is a White Man’s Sport’

Baltimore Orioles All-Star center fielder Adam Jones claims that you don’t see MLB players protesting the national anthem because “baseball is a white man’s sport.’’

In an interview with USA Today the 31-year-old veteran seems to suggest that unlike the NFL, the MLB doesn’t need black players. He contends that if you choose to make a political stand protesting “The Star Spangled Banner,” the league will kick you out.
“In football, you can’t kick them out. You need those players. In baseball, they don’t need us,” Jones argues.
USA Today reports African Americans comprise 68% of the players in the NFL, and 74% in the NBA. Only 8% of the player population in baseball is African American. On Opening day 2016, just 69 African-Americans were on the opening-day rosters and disabled lists.
The growing movement of NFL players protesting the anthem began when 49ers quarterback Colin Kaepernick failed to stand during the ritual pregame ceremony during an exhibition game in August. The 28-year-old veteran, who signed a six-year, $114,000,000 contract with the San Francisco 49ers in 2015, chooses not to honor the American flag because of racial oppression and police brutality in the United States.
Kaepernick now enjoys the company of his teammate Eric Reid, Broncos linebacker Brandon Marshall, and four Miami Dolphins players who all now protest the anthem. More are likely to follow as the NFL season gets further underway.
USA Today reporter Bob Nightingale writes that he doesn’t think that protesting players would be immediately banned from the game, but that given the length of the season—162 games plus playoffs and World Series—“they could face much more ridicule and ostracization.”
Jones, who has delivered major offensive production for the Mariners and the Orioles over his 11-year career, thinks it unfair that Kaepernick endures more scorn than his former teammate Bruce Miller, who was arrested last week and indicted for aggravated assault, elder abuse, threats, and battery against a 70-year-old man and his 29-year-old son.
“Here’s my thing,’’ the career .279 hitter asserted, “there’s somebody on the 49ers’ team that commits an act like that, accosts a 70-year-old man and his kid, and nobody’s talking about that. But they talk about Kaepernick doing something that he believes in, as his right as an American citizen. People need to talk more about that guy than Kaepernick.”
Jones expressed his frustration with what he sees as a double standard. “I’ve seen Kaepernick called the N-word,’’ Jones said, “just because he’s being sensitive to what has happened to African-Americans in this country. It’s crazy how when people of color speak up, we’re always ridiculed. But when people that are not of color speak up, it’s their right.”

Ironically, Kaepernick was fined in 2014 for calling Lamar Houston the n-word during a contest with the Chicago Bears. Although agreeing to pay $5,512 for the incident, the embattled quarterback denies ever saying it.

Nigger be right- and that's why baseball is the only sport worth watching. If you like the brutality of football, watch hockey, since it's always going to be a white man's game (outside of a few tokens). If you like basketball, watch private high school teams, especially religious schools as they are almost always lily-white.

Niggers and their logic is stupidity in the highest level of ignorance, which represents the nigger culture.

The Cubs are going to win the World Series for the first time in over 100 years, and I'm going to miss it, because I stopped watching sports. It's just too ghetto. Know what I mean?

FUCK THE MEDIA...AND FUCK YOU ESPN said...

And the fawning liberal pole smokers in the sports media will applaud and suck his cock for being brave and "keeping the conversation going". Fuck Baltimore. Adam Jones can go suck the shit from Marilyn Mosbys asshole.

Well Yeah, Yes and No.
If you ain't good enough to dominate
Basketball, or brutal enough to play Football,
I guess you wind up in Baseball.
Nigger, if you don't like the Game, then
Set your Hair on Fire in the Ghetto.

About 30 percent of mlb players come from the Dominican republic. The Tigers have Six players on their roster from Venezuela. If your white son wants to play pro baseball he will end up with the Schaumburg boomers

Now that we know the percentage of black layers in the NFL...Give us the percentage of white assholes buying tickets to see these nigs play. Quit buying tickets and you'll see how fast these nigs will start respecting our flag.

If white kids grew up in a third world shithole with nothing to do but play games all day they would be better ball players too. Give it a generation and our kids may be just that, with the way the democrats and republicans are steering us towards third world status.

That's because blacks and browns are stupid and irrational, and also lie constantly. Whites are intelligent and rational, and their opinions naturally carry a lot more weight.
