We all loved the Jackie Robinson little leaguers. They were the first African-American team to win the title. They visited the White House and we collectively celebrated them, but along the way they made some enemies. One of their enemies was a coach of a team from Evergreen Park a suburb of Chicago. The Jackie Robinson team had kicked their butts. So let’s just call him a little motivated. He dropped the dime on them and upon investigation it was determined they had broken some rules and they were stripped of their title. This is sad for the children, but the adults created this situation. This is not racism this is what happens when you break the rules and the rulemakers find out.
Jackie Robinson little leaguers stripped of their title…racist or simply the right thing to do?
