you did not hear me raise a racial issue on this one. This occured in 1971, I believe; I was playing in the Southeast Asian League at the time.
We did'nt worry about a person's religion or racial background. We worried about getting the mission accomplished with the lowest casualty rate possible.
But, I must say it appears there is far too much focus on the Wilmington 10 and some time forgotten issue from the 1890s.
Now, let them focus on reducing crime in the public housing projects; improving school performance for those residents; and holding parents accountable for their children. Those would be worthwhile projects which could have a positive impact today.
But that might take some from their age old comfort zones and require them to focus on the present in order to have a positive impact on the future.
