If you went anywhere near social media on Tuesday, it was impossible to avoid the tough conversation of race in America. We here at Bleed Cubbie Blue tend to steer clear of political discourse, and we know that our readers appreciate it, but in the context of what’s happening in the country, it would be impossible to post about “what’s going on in the league” without talking about this.

Throughout the day on Monday and Tuesday, teams took to social media to take a stand against racism (here is the Cubs statement if you missed it), and most of the stories generated since then cover the difficult, and often tense discussion of racism.

Neither myself nor anyone at this website are here to push agendas, but “ending racism” seems to be something we can all agree on. And if you don’t want to hear it from me that’s okay, but Fergie Jenkins and the Cubs did a good job being brief about it.

And here are some more related stories from around baseball.

And tomorrow will be a better day than today, Buster. Make it so.
