Open Thread: The Lawsuit of Brian Flores…Echoes of Curt Flood?

Both of my parents were baseball fanatics. Knew the game inside and out. My mother was a baseball historian….and, she counted Curt Flood as important to baseball as Jackie Robinson. My mother believed that every current baseball player should put 1% of their salary into a fund that would go to Flood’s descendents. Without him, the financial independence they now enjoy would not be possible.

So, when I see credible people compare Brian Flores’s lawsuit to Curt Flood, I have to sit up and pay attention.

The NFL seems to have underestimated the level of receipts that he is bringing to the table.

    First Whoopi Goldberg on #TheView and now Leslie Jones with #NBCSports trying to stop her own personal tweets about the Winter Olympics. It feels like don’t want our voices anywhere and when they pretend they do they want us to be quiet.

    Friendly reminder that the Deep South is not a voluntary multiracial democracy. That’s thanks to the Federal government enforcing the VRA and CRA. There’s a reason these states have been gunning against the VRA.

    Once the VRA & CRA is gone, the South will try to revert to 1950.

    Trump routinely tore up presidential documents in violation of the law, even once reportedly popping a paper into his mouth.

    “He seems to commit all these misdeeds… with impunity,” says @glennkirschner2. “Why? Because he hasn’t been held accountable for a single one.”

    Stop trying to shame Berners with that SCOTUS ruling. Berners have never cared about Black voters in the South.
