I hope the media doesn’t make this about race and focuses on the man and his accomplishments and not his skin color

Well apparently he got the Moderna CV vaccine a couple weeks back, so that'll be a part of the focus now.

I think everyone is sick and tired of all the race baiting by the media now days. That said, what he did for race relations in general, much less baseball, should not be overlooked. He faced true adversity because the color of his skin and still kept his head down and kicked ass. It was a lot different than what all these race baiting a-holes of today try to act like they go through.
