Over the past few days I have watched the national conversation concerning the Jackie Robinson Little league baseball team. The team has been stripped of their championship because they broke the rules. They are accused of having boys on the team who did not live within the residential boundaries of the team. The coaches knew what they were doing when they put the boys on the team, but the entire team is punished for the acts of a few. This is sad, but it is not some conspiracy created by “the man”. Sadly, some are characterizing this as a race thing. What are we doing to the children? When we tell them something is racist and it isn’t aren’t we creating a victim mentality? What are we doing when we justify cheating by saying “they do it too”. What happened to us? Share your thoughts.
Are we teaching the children to be victims?
