    An unevolved minor league baseball team had an idea for Caucasian Heritage Night, which for some reason didn't go over too well and they had to cancel it.

    http://www.milb.com/news/article.js...d=131690108&fext=.jsp&vkey=news_t519&sid=t519

    "Minor League Baseball, and the Orem Owlz, is about baseball, togetherness and family fun for all fans of all races, religions, and orientations. Our goal in this promotion, like any of our promotions, is to have fun and make fun of everyday normalcies. Our night was to include wonder bread on burgers with mayonnaise, clips from shows like Friends and Seinfeld and trying to solve the vertical leaping challenge. We understand, in light of recent tragic events, that our intentions have been misconstrued. For that, we sincerely apologize.

    The Owlz are committed to all its fans, families and all fans of baseball alike - no matter who you are. The event has been removed from our promotional schedule effectively immediately."

    Maybe Robin can work this into the news next week so Howard can talk about how insensitive this is.

    imagine if a team tried to do black heritage night and gave these out to the first 100 fans

    the outrage would be heard for weeks and would result in multiple firings, followed by the stadium burned to the ground.

    whitebread jokes are no biggie.

    The next 100 would be rioting looting & burning down the stadium as the first 100 threw chicken bones at them.

    i take no offense to it and think it is a harmless way to have fun. if people didn't take themselves so seriously we would have fewer problems with race. i just hate the double standard that exists with race issues.

    A smart Owner would just have a German or Scotch-Irish heritage night and still get the desired results... but as we know, Rednecks ain't that smart.
