If Strom Thurmond had his way, I wouldn't be commemorating Black History Month here on this blog because Black History Month wouldn't exist. In fact, if he had his way, I wouldn't have any cards of black players to post because they'd have never had the chance to play for the Padres. I'd say I'm glad that the Strom Thurmonds of the world are no longer in positions of power but, sadly, that isn't so. They're still floating to the top like the scum they are but now they cloak their racism in a show of self preservation while still furthering their agenda to stack the deck against those outside their elite circle. We talk about progress a lot but isn't it really just a mirage? Haven't the oppressors just become better liars, making only the concessions they must in order to stay in power? When will the general public stop turning a blind eye? What will it take to bring forth true equality?
