Are white liberals losing black Americans?

Blue Lives Matter Thin Blue Line Police Support Vinyl Decal ...
We posted recently about a video showing that white liberals and black Americans in New York City are not on the same page when it comes to defunding police.
Guess what: something similar seems to be happening in Minneapolis.  This is from The Star Tribune in Minneapolis: “Egregious, grotesque, absurd, crazy, ridiculous.”
Trump tweeting?  Not this time.
This is the language of local black leaders — the ones who probably walked the neighborhood the day after the local government let vandals have their way.  I would not be surprised if these leaders had business interests burned down or spoke to black, Hispanic, or immigrant constituents who did.
A little breach or disconnect?  Probably both.
As we have seen in other places, black Americans support the police for the same reason that you and I do.  Whom do you call when someone breaks into your house or threatens your street?
Our hope is that the voters in these districts, the ones who don’t pack up and leave, remember all of this when we vote in November.

The tragedy of the 1919 Chicago White Sox

On this day in 1921, the Chicago White Sox were accused of throwing the 1919 World Series.  
The roster included Eddie Cicotte who won 209 games, as well as 28 and 29 in 1917 and 1919 respectively.    He was one of the masters of the “junk pitch”!    
The other big name was Joe “Shoeless” Jackson, perhaps the greatest hitter of the decade after Ty Cobb.     Jackson was a .356 career hitter, including .382 in 1920 and .408 in 1911!    His On Base Average was .413!   We can safely predict that he’d challenged Ty Cobb for career batting average and hits.     Jackson would have definitely been selected to The Hall of Fame.
The trial was a circus and the players were eventually acquitted.   Nevertheless, MLB Commissioner banned 8 of the players from ever playing again.      
It was not a good moment for baseball, specially the owners and justice.   The players never got the money from the criminal elements but I agree with the Commissioner’s ultimate decision. 
Again, it was very sad, specially the case of Jackson, Cicotte and Buck Weaver, another great player on that team.
In the late 1980’s, the story came back when Eliot Asinop published “Eight men out”.   It was also a great movie released in the 1990’s.
