Link to full article at site. Maybe hank is using "afroamerican code" for the Koch brothers when he says "they have neckties and starched shirts". Are those "code" words for evil white folks?

Hey, Hank, we are getting tired of this sh*t. You guys are turning folks who aren’t racists into racists. And I don’t like liberals no matter what color they are. Deal with it!

Maybe Hank should note those KKK people were democrates and were it not for the GOP, the civil rights acts would never have passed.

This sort of rhetorical excess has been growing enormously in the past few years; it serves no useful purpose and merely exacerbates the national divisions which are tearing apart the nation.

Hank went through a lot pursuing Babe Ruth's record. There was plenty of hate mail from white Democrats all over the nation during the chase. He's decided to project that all those Democrat hate letters were really Republican.

Conservative Republicans want what's best for ALL Americans, moderate Republicans are too wimpy to be racists.

I guarantee you he’s not scared of being in a white neighborhood with a lot of Republicans after dark. Can we say the same for white people in a black heavy Democrat neighborhood?

His mind is poisoned.

It’s a little late for Hank to jump aboard the Race Train.

That train has already left the station and wrecked just a short way down the track.

It has never ceased to amaze me how blacks stick together. If whites stuck together like blacks, things would probably be a little different in this country.

No doubt. fauxbama the great uniter. Sadly, the no/low info voters have succeeded in stickin’ it to us so they can get some more “free stuff”. Great society cost how many trillions of $$$ in the past 50 years? Way to go repubs for pushing for passage of that piece of garbage.

There’s a spiritual side to it too. The Republican is more likely to be Christian or at least a serious Jewish person... and as always, the devil hates God.

Call it silly if you want, but I pray God will bind the devil and drive him away from Hank.

He did. And I still think he’s the greatest hitter to play the game.

But once again, he proves that athletes and entertainers should stay away from public policy.

All these people like to point at Republicans and cry “racist.” But they can’t point to one single Republican policy that actually is racist.

Unless of course it would be policies that promote personal accountability, family responsibility, deferred gratification, independence, achievement by merit and actually working for something instead of waiting for your welfare ration.

They honored Hank last night at Turner Field in celebration of the anniversary of his breaking Babe Ruth’s record. The Mets spoiled the evening with a 4-0 win. Go Mets!

Hank must be getting senile. The only man in Congress I know of who was an active member of the KKK was Democratic Senator Robert Byrd. Further, check out who most of the segregationists were... They mostly had a D by their name.

I don't deny that as a baseball player, Aaron lived through an extremely racist period in history, especially in the southern cities.
However, ever since he's retired, he's become extraordinarily bitter (like he was the only one) and never fails to blame whites - i.e. Republicans - for what he endured.
It was over 50 years ago Hank - it's over ... STFU ... and psssst ... those racist rednecks were Democrats! You could look it up.

That was back in 1974. Hammerin' Hank has been carrying a grudge a long time.

Sorry, Hank, but the KKK was run by Democrats. Ask Imperial Wizard Robert Byrd who stayed a democrat his entire life.

And also, the Civil Rights and Voting acts were passed by Republicans with the kkk democrats objecting.

Get your facts straight

Too much white guilt for all the horrors heaped on their long dead ancestors. Uh, a little history would show africanAmericans that for the most part it was opposing tribal leaders that caught and sold most of their “brothers” in to slavery. Otherwise they’d be rotting in some squalid village in zimbabwe or somewhere on the “dark continent” as it used to be called. And probably called that due to the fact that so much of it wasn’t explored at the time. Of course they would contend it was called that because of all the black people there.

Hank has been bitch’en about racial bias and his race (pun intended) to beat Ruth’s record for a long time, he’s just fine tuning it to conform to the current Progressive Obama Statements.
When he brought up the KKK did mention the 3300,0000 White Union military who died, and 260,000 disabled, who fought to free his forbearers from slavery. An ignored detail in the Progressive Black Community history books.

I didn't see where he said Republicans.

From the linked article....

“We can talk about baseball. Talk about politics. Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated.

“We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country.

“The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”

Hey, Hank, the NRA was founded to defend black ownership of guns so they could defend themselves against the KKK.
