After defending President Obama, baseball legend receives hate mail

 

A week after baseball legend Hank Aaron’s comparison of Obama’s GOP critics to the Ku Klux Klan, the Hall of Famer is now receiving hate mail. 

During an interview with USA Today, the senior vice president of the Atlanta Braves told the publication: “Sure, this country has a black president, but when you look at a black president, President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated. We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country. The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”

It was those remarks that caused a wave of hate mail to the Braves headquarters.
