jesse jackson is after mlb again, and this time it's because the umps background checks included a question to their neighbors 'is mr. x a member of the kkk?' http://sports.yahoo.com/mlb/news?slug=ap-umpires-backgroundchecks&prov=ap&type=lgns i think asking if a person is a part of a hate group is a valid question. mr. jackson is going overboard again, they are not equating southern, or any, whites for being supremacists. they are asking a legit question to see if the person is a bit shady. and if he was really for black progress in baseball, would he really want kkk members umping games? i was going to post this in the hotstove thread, but i think this topic should be put in this forum due to it's nature.
