The Unbearable Whiteness of Baseball


By Hunter Wallace

I don’t even have to say to it:

“As I grew older and started feeling alienated from my white classmates, I gravitated toward athletes who, in some way, flouted the white, stoic traditions of American sports — Allen Iverson, Ken Griffey Jr., Rasheed Wallace, Pedro Martinez. I felt as if this was a moral choice. …”

There is no way the New York Times would publish an article about, say, “the unbearable blackness of SEC football” or “the unbearable Jewishness of Hollywood movies.” The mainstream media has become casually and explicitly anti-White. The cultural confidence on display here is also a reflection of the judgment that the Left faces no real opposition from mainstream conservatism.
