Well true, he didn't hit him in the head AND he may not have said those words from the mound BUT he did hit JR in the wrist . Was it intentional? No one knows... but Fritz Ostermueller did make some racial comments to his team mates and many thought it intentional. Was he just claiming his 1/2 of the plate as he said and got one too close ? Who knows- only Ostermueller could answer fully that. Rest is here say.
Regardless, JR took a lot of abuse... I'm sure there was much more than in the movie. AND there's still much racism alive today ... just not so blatant !
Like you don't see the parallel...? ...and how Barack Obama "is 'taking one' for the team"?
It's not easy to set yourself up as a target in order to overcome long standing barriers.
