Is this sign about Hideki Matsui racist?

I really don't know.

The sign was clearly written with a lot of love for the player.
And I guess they acknowledge his heritage...

Man, I really don't know.
This isn't cut and dry Chief Wahoo for me.

Tell me what you think.

    is this about the conversation we had this morning?

  2. if they're not offering him free sex and english IS their first language, then yes, it's probably a tad racist... however, it's certainly not worse than Manuel letting a spent Pedro pitch to Matsui in the fourth inning of Game 6 last year with J.A. Happ in the pen.

    I did like Full Metal Jacket.
    But I didn't really like 2 Live Crew.
    So I'll go for a no contest on this one.
    And my Giants are losing at the moment, and you ain't giving them no love.
    But Eugenio "Stick Man" Velez just spanked a 2-run job to bring the Gigantes to within one. Aaron Rowand now at the plate. Oh hell, just kill me now and go back to telling Bonnie that she has lipstick on her teeth.

  4. I winced when I saw this sign. I detest PC, but these fans should have known better.

    Oops, they are Yankee fans however...

  5. Not only is it racist, it's misogynous too.
