In other words, where do you stand on the William Edward White controversy?

Actually, this team looks pretty well integrated to me:

The first black major-league baseball player was Moses 'Fleetwood' Walker.

Ultraliberals who control the MSM don't like to admit it because he stabbed a whiteman to death and was acquitted and he was a very successful businessman with out Government help.

Ultraliberals only admire blackmen who they can think of as victims.

I have briefly read about Mr White...kinda sorta technically he might be the first black major-league baseball player. But here is the thing...what team did he play for ? I can't remember which one it was and haven't been able to find it recently but Fleetwood played for a baseball organization that eventually because a team that is in MLB. For some reason I am thinking it is The Cardinals.

This is from Wiki, so I don't know if a word of it is true

Ed White played for the Providence Grays, which was a Major League Baseball team based in Providence, Rhode Island. They played in the National League from 1878 until 1885.

Walker signed with the minor league team, the Toledo Blue Stockings of the Northwestern League in 1883. In 1884 Toledo joined the American Association, which was a Major League at that time in competition with the National League.

I'm sure the boys looked fetching in their fashionable Spaldings. I love you



And much more restrained than those garish Red Sox:
