Barry Bonds and race relations

How did Barry Bonds' pursuit of Hank Aaron's all-time home run record come to be a racial thing? African Americans are supporting him, Caucasians apparently are not: http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/19796395/.

To me, this has never been about race. Bonds could be purple for all I care. The way I see it, he cheated, and just for good measure, he's a smacked ass. That's why I cheer against him. Hank Aaron was the personification of class, and he's African American too. So, I ask, how is this about race?

I agree B-H-G, its never about race, its about style, character and skill.

While I've been out of the loop concerning baseball, I'll take your word as gold concerning Barry Bonds.

I DO however remember the great Hank Aaron, and his home run that broke the Babe's record.

Great to see ya blogging as strong as ever, keep it up!

This is similar to those who think O.J. was not guilty. I wonder if there has ever been a similar situation with a white person.
