Much to the horror of baseball fans (and no doubt the army of Kevins and Karens out there waiting for a mission), some fan yelled out a racial slur that was presumably directed at the Miami Marlins outfielder Lewis Brinson.

Cue in the ensuing character assassinations, mostly on Twitter, but also across the media spectrum. The indignation! How could someone in this woke society possibly utter that word!

Sunday night, Tony Clark (who is black and a former MLB all-star), the executive director of the MLB Players Association, reacted by saying: “It is a painful reality that progress continues to be elusive in a world where ignorance and bigotry remain all too commonplace."

Well, cooler heads studied the footage, over 50 recordings and eye witness accounts. As it turns out, the older gentlemen (alleged perp) was attending the game with his grand daughters and was attempting to get the attention of the mascot named... "Dinger" for a photo opportunity.

This atmosphere we live in is unbelievably charged and seems to me ready to blow up. Our human nature has us assuming the worst of people without evidence. Then when the Truth comes to the forefront the accused is irreparably tarnished.

What in the Sam Hill is wrong with society?

Sad part is stuff like this is blasted all over the news. The news will say the first accuser has apologized, without apologizing themselves. They own it too and should do the same.

It's all the same knuckle-headed crap.

Read about this yesterday. Hopefully the executive director got a massive dose of humility. If I were the fan that was blasted by everyone I would be suing the MLB association and anyone else that claimed he was racist. I would be all over the news calling this BS out. I would call for resignations and would not stop until every single one was out of a job and broke.

These idiots really need to be checked, and not in a pleasant way. They need to be pasted all over MSM for the bigoted trash they really are.

So tired of this crap.

Crazy story. It seems par for the course now a days. Guilty until proven innocent and immediately attacked by everyone to show how woke they are.

I hope he Sue's everyone that called him racist on tv, media and social media. His good name has been slandered beyond repair and his earning potential has been devastated by their actions.

If he is smart he will never want for anything again and hopefully put some hurt into the ones who called or implied that he was a racist.

I can see Dinger being renamed as his name can be easily confused for a racial slur. I think the gender and race neutral name of Mascot should be utilized for every team, no names to get confused, nothing to offend anyone. Unless of course someone looks into the roots of the word being "Lucky Charm" which as we all know the cereal uses a rainbow in their advertising, so maybe this proposed name change would tick of the LGBTQ community.

Who knows, it's all pretty ridiculous to me overall. The news organizations reporting on this and Tony Clark should be sued for slander or libel depending on the medium utilized.

These people live in a world where everything can only be understood in terms of stereotypes and self-serving interpretations of the events of the world.

They are incapable of describing the world without their prescriptions. They are possessed by ideologies that cloud their ability to see those they deem as enemies as humans at all.

When they receive news that confirms their insecurities, no matter how outlandish, this news is used to rationalize their version of events and feed their masters.

The reality is that the default “antiracist” position is more paranoid and delusional than anything I have seen in the deepest darkest corners of this website. It is one thing to point out injustice, but it turns when you can only point out these injustices to feed the very system that created them. These are bootlickers who worship power who couldn’t help but spread self-serving falsehoods.

I hope this person gets justice but I am pretty sure that this “teachable moment” won’t be about giving people the benefit of the doubt.

How about we just tell the "easily offended asshats"' to go to hell and start slamming the MSM for giving airtime to every little perceived slight?
