Torii Hunter’s comments about race in baseball are not typically this boneheaded. “Boneheaded” is what we call it when a person of color says something like this. “Racist” is what we call it when a white person says it.
While participating in USA Today’s roundtable on the state of baseball, Hunter floated a theory that baseball uses dark-skinned players from countries like the Dominican Republic, Puerto Rico and Venezuela to give an appearance that it has more African-Americans playing the game than it really does.
But, Hunter says in a controversial money quote, “they’re not us, they’re impostors.”
