Too Much Rather Than Not Enough, Claim Is Lack Of ‘Diversity’ But MLB Is Giving Foreigners Jobs Instead Of Americans

Spread the reality, RealityShed.Com --

You’ve got to wonder about a professional sports league that has, for the longest time, now denied their own history for a manufactured one, while at the same time complaining about ‘diversity’ {sic} which is a made-up thing to destroy Western civilization and leftist code for anti-white. One tool the left uses is Jackie Robinson, who was indeed a good man and player, but he did NOT break the professional baseball color barrier.

That was accomplished by Moses Fleetwood Walker, also a black man, on May 1, 1884, when he played Catcher for the Toledo Blue Stockings of the professional (as in paid players) American Association (AA). He appeared in 42 of their 104 games (batting .263, which was the 3rd best average in the league), at a time before “catcher’s mitts”. Mainly he caught barehanded, but did sometimes wear a regular glove with slits in it so he could stuff some padding into the palm.

Moses’ own brother, Weldy Walker, was the 2nd professional black baseball player, on July 15, 1884, as an OF for the same team when injuries left them short of players. He played just 5 games that year, but later played 3B for other teams. Toledo finished 8th (46-58) out of 13 teams. It would then be almost 63 years until Jackie started at 1B for the Brooklyn Dodgers on April 15, 1947.

Oberlin College baseball team of 1881 (they were 3-0). Moses Fleetwood Walker #6 sitting middle row, and his brother Weldy #10 standing in back row. Moses’ course of studies included Greek, Latin, German, French, rhetoric, astronomy, botany, geology, and zoology. He did not graduate, but left to attend University of Michigan for 2 years before leaving to play professional baseball. By unknown, from AP, via theguardian.com

New research touts William Edward White (who was mixed race; white father, black mother) as the first black player (ONE game on June 21, 1879 for the Providence Grays*, of the then new National League; and the first team to install a screen behind home plate to protect fans from wild pitches and foul balls), but he both passed as AND self-identified as a white man. Moses never hid from what he was, so in our book he remains first.

Back to today, democRATs, MSM and other communists, along with MLB itself are claiming that with ZERO American-born black players on World Series rosters this year, for either the Philadelphia Phillies (NL champs) or Houston Astros (AL champs), that MLB lacks ‘diversity’ {sic}. Let’s look at the math, which as we know the left insists is ‘muh racist’.

2022 MLB season (versus population of USA)
62.1% White (59.3%)
28.5% hispanic (18.9%)
7.2% black (13.6%)
1.9% asian (6.1%)
0.4% other (2.1%)

‘Remember kids, diversity is our strength.’, by Karaokephile, via imgflip.com

Some of these players are foreign born, but going just by race, Whites are SLIGHTLY over-represented (by 2.8%), and hispanics are vastly over-represented (by 9.6%) while blacks are approximately half what would be par. Asians and ‘other’ (combined) are also under-represented at barely over 28% of what would be par.

Here is the distinction. We think the best people should get the job, regardless of race…but they should not be foreigners, they should be Americans. We also feel the same way about pro sports leagues in other countries.

According to their own report, MLB opening day rosters for 2022, along with players on various lists (such as injured, restricted or bereavement), total 975 men (840 active, 135 not). Other than the expanded roster year of 2020 (which had 291), the 2022 season was the highest for foreign born players with 275 foreign players from 21 countries and territories. That is 28.2% of all MLB players this year.

The countries represented are:
The Dominican Republic (99), Venezuela (67), Cuba (23), Puerto Rico (16), Mexico (13), Columbia (10), Panama (6), Honduras (1), Nicaragua (1). So 236 hispanics total of 275.

Along with Canada (12), Japan (7), Curaçao (5), South Korea (4), the Bahamas (3), with Aruba, Australia, Brazil, Germany, the Netherlands, Taiwan, and U.S. Virgin Islands all having one. There is also 1 unknown (possibly from outer-space**). So 39 of 275.

‘The Hypocrisy is real’, by crocidile90 from iphone Conservative, via memedroid.com

The Houston Astros have SIXTEEN foreign-born players on their roster! So from that we know they help a team be successful AND that they are more likely to cheat (which kind of goes hand in hand for that team which never truly paid a price for their cheating that they did while winning via cheating. In other words, they cheat. And Rob Manfred is a piece of shit for letting them get away with it).

Those 275 spots are jobs that Americans can and would do, just like late night comedy talk shows***. The claim is that despite the U.S. population increasing, there simply aren’t enough MLB quality American players to stock teams, so they must hire foreigners, and THAT is complete and utter bullshit:

U.S. Population, every 10 years since 1950)
1950 148,281,550
1960 176,188,578
1970 200,328,340
1980 223,140,018
1990 248,083,732
2000 282,398,554
2010 311,182,845 (more than double 1950, just 60 years earlier)
2020 335,942,003
2022 338,289,857

Number of teams in the league today (and in 1950)
MLB (founded 1876 NL, 1901 AL) = 30 (16 in 1950)
NFL (founded 1920) = 32 (13 in 1950, first year of the AAFC–NFL merger which brought in the Browns, 49ers and Colts)
NBA (founded 1946) = 30 (11 in 1950-51 season)

“We can’t find 275 more good players out of 338 MILLION Americans.” Fuck you MLB. They no longer give us heroes.

“Especially when 9% of that 12.9% lives in poverty.”, ‘CONCENTRATING 90% OF YOUR ADVERTISING ON 12.9% OF THE POPULATION IS AN UNSUSTAINABLE BUSINESS MODEL’, by Julie.F., via imgflip.com

While over the decades blacks have stayed at roughly about 13% of the U.S. population (or just over 1 in 8, which is 12.5%) they have managed to take 68% of the NFL player jobs and 81.1% of the NBA player jobs. That is NOT ‘diverse’.

Whites are just 16% of the global population, or 1 in 7 people on Earth. THAT is a minority. Yet the alt-far-left try to end them being a majority in countries they founded and now in sports leagues in those countries. Leftists claim that because the player % is so high in the pro sports leagues, that the coaching % should be too, but that isn’t logical. The problem is that the player % is too high, and the coaching % ​​is almost exactly where it should be.

If we went by the strict definition of diverse, there would be 127 American-born black players in MLB out of 975 (or 4.23 per team), since according to the left you have to have representation according to your portion of the population.

There would also be 221 American born black players in the NFL out of 1696 players (or 6.91 per team), and 59 American born black players out of 450 (or 1.97 per team). Why is all of that important? Think back to 2020, and the BLM riots. Those riots could never EVER have happened if what the left claim they want (equality defined by population percentage) was real.

“Why are some products/services not OK with this, but other times it is OK?”, ‘REMOVE THESE RACIST DEPICTIONS FROM YOUR PRODUCTS NOW!, YAY! DIVERSITY!’, by pureserenity524, via imgflip.com

This proves beyond all doubt that leftists are the actual racists. And what MLB is doing is transferring wealth from Americans (fans, and even people able to play who aren’t allowed to) and giving the money to foreigners who usually send the money back home (AKA out of the USA), while taking jobs from American citizens, all in the name of ‘diversity’ {sic}. These leagues are the opposite of ‘diverse’, but still lecture us.

democRATs like to throw the phrase “systemic racism” around but forget THEY ARE THE SYSTEMic. Always talking about race, dividing people into groups by race and pitting them against each other by race IS RACISM! In reality, the left is working to eliminate blacks (and other so-called minorities) from many aspects of society, including product packaging.

Leftists have also tricked black people into believing freedom means killing their own babies, and mutilating / sterilizing those that survive for the ‘trans’ agenda (MLB is all-in on this). If you make it to adulthood, you live in large cities that democRATs (who founded the KKK) control, that are basically modern-day plantations offering the illusion of freedom with the new crop being votes.

If you don’t fall in line and vote democRAT**** you are called “Uncle Tom” or worse. And if you make it out of all of that, then dare to say ‘the wrong thing’, you get cancel cultured as they are now doing to Kanye West and Kyrie Irving.

*The Providence Grays (NL) and New York Metropolitans (AA) played the first postseason inter-league game (pre-dating the World Series), which was won by the Grays 6–0 on October 23, 1884. It was a 3-game series (not the best of the 3), with the Grays winning all 3 games.

**We ran the numbers from the MLB Press Release from April, 2022, three times and there is one missing. Although maybe they aren’t from space…

***Until fairly recently, we had to put up with foreign communists: Samantha Bee (Canada), Trevor Noah (South Africa), and both James Corden and John Oliver (of PrettyGood Britain). With the first two gone, and James leaving, we just need to deport John.

****In POTUS election years, blacks vote approximately 90% for democRAT candidate, which explains why they are where they are as a group, and why they complain so much. All Republicans did was free you FROM the democRATs after the Civil War…

Hateful Racism Actually, Movie Director Takes Dump On Own Flick As War On Whites Allows No ‘Safe Space’ Or ‘Refuge’

Published

on

'Truth!', template of scene from 'Love Actually' (2003) Universal Pictures, meme by us. Whites are a minority everywhere except white-founded countries, which the left is working to change.
Spread the reality, RealityShed.Com --

The globalist left (MSM, democRATs and RINOs) are SO openly racist now that they are even hiring hispanics to be ‘White Nationalists’. We’ll discuss that next time, but when someone has an obviously hispanic last name and is still pushed as White, you know leftists are committed to their lie. And a nationalist is simply someone who loves their country above all others. Nobody has a problem with yellow nationalist Xi Jinping of communist China.

Which brings us to Richard Curtis, an obviously sub-human left-wing piece of trash, who has decided that his movie FROM ALMOST TWO DECADES AGO, ‘Love Actually’ (2003), isn’t ‘diverse’ {sic} enough.

That word USED to mean “showing a great deal of variety; very different”, but the DNA-denying alt-far-left have changed it to mean “including or involving people from a range of different social and ethnic backgrounds and of different genders, sexual orientations, etc.” DNA is still “settled science”.

‘Truth Too!’, template of scene from ‘Love Actually’ (2003) Universal Pictures, meme by us. Virtually no whites in India, Nigeria, Mexico, Japan, Iran and MANY other countries. Left = crickets.

First a little bit of Hollyweird math. The listed budget for that movie was $40-45 million, so we’ll call that $42.5 million. They rarely list the marketing, which is NEVER included in the budget…EVER. It varies but is usually about 50% the size of the budget, so we’ll go with $21.25 million, or $63.75 million out of pocket before any tickets are sold.

The official box office is listed as $246.8 million. The dirty little secret is that theaters get roughly half of that, so $123.4 million in this case. That means a $59.65 million profit, before home video and streaming, on a $63.75 million upfront investment.

“Love Actually is a Christmas movie. Die Hard is a Christmas movie. Love Actually is a Die Hard movie?”, by MacoTeat, via reddit.com

If you could get back almost $2 for every $1 you invested, you would do so. This movie was a success! The theaters were happy. The actors and others who made it were happy. And the studio was happy. Everyone made money! So why is the director now complaining…19 years later?

He claims the movie now is “out of date” and “the lack of diversity makes me feel uncomfortable and a bit stupid”. This is a movie made right before the 2003 release. According to the 2001 UK census ‘population demographics’, there was a 58,789,194 ‘resident population’ which was 92.14% white at the time (85.67% White British + White (other) 5.27% + White Irish 1.2%).

“Love actually afte 17 years”, by miklasovak, via 9gag.com. Yes, the title was missing the ‘r’. Boo yourself, it is still true. RIP Alan.

Next on the list for the UK was Indian at 1.8% and then Pakistani at 1.3% (both considered Asian). Then less than 5% of the population was anything else. And since the cast was predominantly White, Curtis made a movie that looked like the country it was set in.

“There are things you’d change but, thank God, society is changing”, asshat McCuckface added. Curtis is a massive fan of the ‘great replacement’ (HERE, HERE and HERE), obviously. But other than lurching left, how much did things really change?

“Yes, It’s True: There’s Only A Five-Year Age Gap Between Sam And Juliet From ‘Love Actually'”, by Leigh, via ruinmyweek.com.She was born March 26, 1985, and he was born May 16, 1990. Movie released November 3, 2003 (obviously filmed before that).

A study of UK population demographics for 2022 shows a population of 67,850,000, with the breakdown being 87.1% White, 7.0% Asian, 3.0% Black, 2.0% Mixed, 0.9% others. So, in 19 years up about 9 million people, but the white (AKA native) population dropped just over 5%.

The one black actor in the main cast, Chiwetel Ejiofor (‘Baron Mordo’ of the Marvel ‘Doctor Strange’ movies), played ‘Peter’, the guy who married (then) jail-bait actress Keira Knightley’s character ‘Juliet’ who still gets a visit by Peter’s friend and best-man ‘Mark’, played by future ‘The Walking Dead’ star Andrew Lincoln.

“Love Actually but with a cat (OwlKitty Parody)”, by OwlKitty, via YouTube.com. Of course he is saying that to a black cat…KIDDING, OwlKittey is adorable! We loves cats…but we can’t eat a whole one. They are just jokes, folks.

Mark tells her of his true feelings for her via a series of ready-made cue cards. Juliet and Peter had thought Mark hated her, but the reality was he acted cold towards her out of “self-preservation”.

Curtis added, “There is such extraordinary love that goes on every minute in so many ways [in life], all the way around the world, and makes me wish my film was better.” There was NOTHING wrong with your movie, ma’am. Remember YOU belong to a true minority and need to stop being a leftist stooge and represent! “Enough. Enough now.” –Mark walking away after Juliet kisses his cheek at end of the ‘signs’ scene.

No Safe Space For Christians, Alt-Far-Left Insist ‘Great American Family’ Network Ruin Itself Just As Hallmark Did

Published

on

'Diverted attention', by unknown, from instagram, via distractify.com
Spread the reality, RealityShed.Com --

The left’s war on normality continues. Apparently, they are allowed to infiltrate and infect every aspect of your life, but if you resist or dare to find or create alternatives for things they have destroyed or are currently destroying, you will be tracked down and harassed until you capitulate.

It has been almost three years now since ‘Hallmark Channel’ announced they would push sin as normal (AKA include gay stuff in their allegedly wholesome programming), and as their ‘talent’ contracts began to expire, many of them decided it was time to take leave of the once family-friendly series of related channels.

Enter ‘Great American Family‘, which began life years ago as ‘Great American Country’ (a country music channel established by ‘Jones Radio Network’), before being purchased by ‘Scripps Networks’, then sold to ‘Discovery Inc.’. Then, as part of the merger with ‘Warner Media’, Discovery sold off GAC to an investment group including Bill Abbott, who is the former President and CEO of Crown Media Family Networks, which owns Hallmark.

The acronym GAC has now changed to ‘Great American Channels’ as they will have multiple (Great American Family and Great American Living are the two that Great American Media has in place now), similar to Hallmark. So that makes it an attractive place for the former Hallmark’ers to resume producing actual true real proper family-friendly (and faith-based) programming.

Former Hallmark stars Candace Cameron Bure and Danica McKellar, both now with Great American Family. by unknown, via godtv.com

Candace Cameron Bure, originally known for her role on ‘Full House’ (1987-1995) and its continuation, ‘Fuller House’ (2016-2020), but more recently as ‘Aurora Teagarden’ (among other characters) on Hallmark, is the biggest name, as she not only will act and produce but will also take on an executive role at GAC, overseeing and curating programming.

But she isn’t the only one signing up. Danica McKellar, perhaps best known as ‘Winnie Cooper’ in ‘The Wonder Years’ (1988-1993) and an actual math genius…the “Chayes–McKellar–Winn theorem” is partly named after her, also joined as did Lori Loughlin…who did her crime (college admissions scandal) and served her time, along with a host of others.

But it is Candace who is taking all of the grief online, as being the most visible makes her the biggest and best target. It runs in the family as her older brother and fellow actor Kirk Cameron has been outspoken about his Christian beliefs for years, and has taken heat for it too.

The comments online on social(IST) media sites or comment sections on articles about her are filled with hate and double standards, accusing her of the behavior they are actually doing (such as being a nazi, a hypocrite, and being pro KKK, among other things).

Entire Christmas 2022 schedule for GAC, by unknown, via tvshowsace.com

Even her former ‘middle sister’ from ‘Full House’ and ‘Fuller House’, actress Jodie Sweetin, attacked Bure. But Jodie has admitted drug and alcohol addictions since the original show ended, and does espouse alt-far-left beliefs. Sweetin was even thrown to the ground by police after charging their ‘line’ during a June, 2022, protest over her ‘right’ to kill babies.

We talked prior about the left going after Christians and Christmas (HERE, HERE, and HERE), but you can’t have a Christmas movie without acknowledging Christ. Candace knows that, saying “My heart wants to tell stories that have more meaning and purpose and depth behind them. I knew that the people behind Great American Family were Christians that love the Lord and wanted to promote faith programming and good family entertainment.”

She also said, “I think that Great American Family will keep traditional marriage at the core.” But she did hedge a bit by adding, “It’s certainly the year 2022, so we’re aware of the trends. There’s no whiteboard that says, ‘Yes, this’ or ‘No, we’ll never go here.’” Apparently, Abbott has indicated they may add programming in the future focusing on other faiths and beliefs, but for now the intent is to focus on Christianity and themes friendly to that.

‘Christmas time is great…’, by unknown, from instagram, via distractify.com

Candace responded to the hate, saying “All of you know me, know beyond question that I have great love and affection for all people. It absolutely breaks my heart that anyone would ever think I intentionally would want to offend and hurt anyone. It saddens me that the media is often seeking to divide us, even around a subject as comforting and merry as Christmas movies. But, given the toxic climate in our culture right now, I shouldn’t be surprised. We need Christmas more than ever.”

Adding, “I am a devoted Christian, which means that I believe that every human being bears the image of God. Because of that, I am called to love all people, and I do. If you know me, you know that I am a person who loves fiercely and indiscriminately. My heart yearns to build bridges and bring people one step closer to God, to love others well, and to simply be a reflection of God’s huge love for all of us.”

She concluded with, “To the members of the media responsible for using this opportunity to fan flames of conflict and hate, I have a simple message: I love you anyway. To those who hate what I value and who are attacking me online: I love you. To those who have tried to assassinate my character: I love you. To everyone reading this, of any race, creed, sexuality, or political party, including those who have tried to bully me with name calling, I love you.”

‘What Mariah Carey wants…’, by unknown, from instagram, via distractify.com

Contrary to strong opinion, Jesus did not actually say “Love the sinner; hate the sin”, but he did say that it isn’t hateful to tell someone they are sinning, and also not a loving thing to leave them stuck in sin. Sin is contrary to God’s nature and is not to be excused, it is to be hated. You show a sinner respect by praying for them, not by accepting their sin as normal.

There is no such thing as being ‘inclusive’ of sin. Too many believe Jesus was some kind of hippy, when the cleansing of the Temple event disproves that. He was anything but tolerant of the money-changers and sales people setting up shop there and turning God’s house of prayer into a marketplace.

The left took Hallmark, after Abbott left, without a struggle. They also pretend to be like us, but are not. They now turn their attention to GAC. Leftists destroy everything that they touch, so don’t let them touch you.
