From my column tomorrow: Carl Edwards, Jr. has been receiving racist messages on his Instagram account. MLB is investigating the posts. It’s absolutely pathetic that in this day and age, a player would receive such messages. Our culture has moved past (or at least I thought it had moved past) these kinds of things. I guess I was wrong. If I don’t like a player it’s based on his ability (or inability) to perform, it’s not based on his racial or ethnic background.

If this bothers you don't watch the news or read what our President says every day. As anyone of color will tell you, racism is alive and kicking still in America. In fact many will say it is worse now than it has been since the 1960's.

I agree it is shameful and disheartening.

I don't think for a minute that racism is anywhere near dead- I just thought that somehow we'd gotten past it in baseball.
