    Dusty Baker thinks the Washington Nationals need more speed, so he wants more African-American and Latino players on the roster.
    He also vigorously defended Cincinnati Reds closer Aroldis Chapman, who was accused of choking his girlfriend and shooting a gun during an incident in October. And Baker also had a different take on domestic violence.............................

    That would be the equivalent of a white person saying what a school full of minorities needs more white kids to get test scores up.

    Old man Dusty got the Nationals job because he is black!
    When Lloyd McClendon got fired from Mariners there were no black managers in MLB.

    "And Baker also had a different take on domestic violence..." which the story doesn't both to share with us. I guess they ran out of ink.

    From Deadspin:

    Baker was asked if he likes MLB’s new domestic-violence policy. He responded with this, via Hardball Talk:

    “Yeah. I think it’s a great thing. I mean, I got a buddy at home that’s being abused by his wife. So I think this policy needs to go further than the player. I think the policy should go to whoever’s involved. Sometimes abusers don’t always have pants on.

    “I think we need to get them both in a room and try to come up with something. It’s a bad situation. That’s the first thing my momma told me when I was a kid. Don’t hit a woman, even my sister. Man, I was like you better leave me alone before I tell my momma.

    “It’s a bad situation. I learned that young, but a lot of people maybe didn’t learn that.”

    Dusty made a Jimmy the greek like comment when he was the Cubs manager. He said day games put blacks at a disadvantage because whitey deflects sun while blacks absorbed it.

    Based on the header I thought a gay wrestler was in favor of John Lennon's killer.

    Move along people. There's nothing to see here. He's black so he gets a pass.

    I seem to recall he was known as something of a dummy as a player. How's he a manager now?
