In response to softlaw2's comment:
Drewski, I like how you put it to Wade, but one word reminds me:
A true American only needs to know the importance of 5 words:
I know what you are getting at, and believe me, I'm not the type to cry racist at every turn. I remember when a coach was fired for saying: "they had more Afrincan Americans than us. We couldnt keep up with their speed." That is not a racist comment and his firing appauled me. How many caucasian cornerbacks have played in the NFL (and been good) since Jason Seyhorn? Thats not a coincidence!
However, I do feel that character should be considered when considering whether a player was a "Red Sox great", and I do feel that Boggs lacked charcter.
I can't stand the always looking to be politically correct "I only know five words" American. If you are passionate against intollerance, how about some tollerance for intollerant people. A trully tolerant person looks to educate and help an intollerant person. Not throw them into the fire w/ some kind of air of superiority. I cant stand the : "I'm one of the good ones" people. Whether its Boston fans saying: "I know why the whole world hates Boston fans, but Im one of the good ones"...or: "I know why the rest of the world hates Americans, but Im one of the good ones" or "I know why the rest of the world hates white people, but Im one of the good ones.."
Get over yourselves.
You should try to have more tolerance for them.
