JRW Supporters Suggest Decision To Take Title Racially Motivated
February 11, 2015 2:58 PM
(CBS) There are accusations that racism was behind the decision by Little League International to strip the Jackie Robinson West team of the national title over cheating by the adults who run the team.
We know that were champions, our parents know that were champions and the teams parents know were champions and Chicago knows were champions, said JRW catcher Brandon Green.
Green said the players did nothing wrong as he stood with his mother, Rev. Jesse Jackson and Fr. Michael Pfleger at the headquarters of Rainbow Push.
It is amazing to me that whenever African-Americans exceed the expectations, that there is always going to be fault, Venisa Green said.
Venisa Green said Little League officals were bullied into taking away JRWs championship.
Little League says that they teach character and they teach courage, well this isnt an act of courage and it sure isnt an act of character, she said.
Fr. Michael Pfleger called the decision racist.
You need to reverse your decision and you need to do it now, Fr. Pfleger said.
Rev. Jesse Jackson also suggested race was behind the decision.

They can take their race card and shove it up their smelly Obamaholes.
Obviously rules and regulations should only apply to blacks when they are to their benefit. In all other cases blacks should be free to ignore said rules and regulations without penalty or comment. That is only just.
I do get sick of this race based double standard garbage!
The farce is complete now that this worthless piece of skin has shown up.
Cut that card!!!! Very good....I’m tired of it too....there is no end to affirmative action. As Geo. Bush said, the discrimination of low expectations

Evergreen Park Little League Vice President Chris Janes said he noticed news reports during and after the Little League World Series that quoted suburban officials celebrating various players as hometown heroes, which raised questions about whether Chicago-based Jackie Robinson West abided by Little League residency rules.

CHICAGO Evergreen Park Athletic Association Vice President Chris Janes, who first called for an investigation into Jackie Robinson West’s boundary changes, says he has received several threatening phone calls, including death threats, since the team was stripped of its U.S. title Wednesday.
“We got about 50 messages,” he told DNAinfo Chicago. “I only listened to a few. Some were gibberish ... saying things like ‘You’re an a———.’ A couple said, ‘You deserve to die.’”
“I’m not really concerned. People have been leaving s-—— emails and voicemails.”
Janes said he has support from the local police.
“An Evergreen Park police car has been parked in front of my house all morning,” he said.
I haven’t heard any of the parents or coaches fess up that they violated the rules. They are either in denial, or feel they are entitled to it.
Affirmative action allowed them to cheat all their life, it isn’t fair to expect to stop now.
This was no accident or misunderstanding.
The team management and parents knowingly cheated and even went so far as to ask officials of the teams they purloined ineligible players from to go along with the scam but were rebuffed.
These people are accustomed to skating by on the basis of their skin color, they live and prosper by ignoring rules and laws.
They don’t understand the meaning of honesty, personal responsibility or only taking what you have earned.
In effect they have looted the Little League system and are now incensed when actually held responsible for their actions.
They are teaching their children to scam and steal, not to be honest, fair and work within the laws and rules.
No good will come of this effort to turn this into a race issue.
The race pimps and whining parents will ensure that another group of young black boys grow into adults full of resentment and and racial hate, believing they have been unfairly treated and cheated out of their championship because they are black, not because the adults tried to cheat the system.
Of course the fact that Rahm is up for reelection has nothing to do with his stance.
Chicago Mayor backs cheating Little League team
CHICAGO, Feb. 11 (UPI) Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel is still standing behind a Little League team, accused of cheating.
Jackie Robinson West (Chicago) has been stripped of its U.S. championship title in the 2014 Little League Baseball International Tournament by little league baseball for rule violations regarding its players, according to multiple sources.
When did we become a nation that not only tolerates an entitlement mentality to thrive in a 'minority' population, but also tolerates blatant profiteering of racism that has been the indirect cause of hundreds of deaths and billions in property loss?
LOOTING - IT'S A CULTURAL THING
You wouldn't Understand
It’s Chicago. Everyone cheats. It’s just part of the game as far as they’re concerned.
Suspended Jackie Robinson West coach refuses to address accusations

Jackie Robinson West
In his first public comments since Jackie Robinson West was stripped of its U.S. Little League title, suspended coach Darold Butler refused to address allegations that he knowingly fielded ineligible players from outside the team’s boundaries.
If the shoe was on the other foot and Las Vegas had been found to have cheated, would the Jackie Robinson supporters be saying it was racially motivated and refuse to accept the trophy?
