In case you missed it, Houston Astros pitcher Justin Verlander threw his third career no-hitter on Sunday against the Toronto Blue Jays. This unbelievable accomplishment made me want to put into perspective how damn good this guy is.
I am not advocating for Gurriel to give up his culture or beliefs or anything of the sort. A matter of fact the diversity of America is one of the things that makes it the greatest country to ever exist. But it should just be crystal clear to everyone that comes to America that “old habits die hard.” Our country has clearly had issues with racism but every single day is a step in the right direction to eradicate racism from our country. Every incident like this one should be met with strong condemnation and I applaud MLB for doing so.
