1. I don't get it. To whom is Cotton speaking?

WE know how he really feels.
THEY know how he really feels.

So... Who?

2. Maybe the "moderates"

Trying to signal that he's not discriminatory.

4. That's a great question

I would like the media to ask Cotten this:

1. How would you explain to children why he was the first African-American baseball player when baseball had been going on for 50-60 years?

2. Were owners justified in fielding all white teams up to that point?

5. "What does 'color barrier' mean?"

-- High school graduates from some states sometime in the near future.

6. 75 years ago Tom Cotton

would have stood with the managers, coaches and players who said they wouldn't play on the field with a black player. I'd like to know where his parents stood.

11. "Hey, Tom. Malcolm X's 100 birthday is in a couple of years. Can we expect to see some sort of.....

12. No doubt Senator Haw-haw would have treated Jackie as least as badly as he did Justice Jackson.

Im concerned that someone like you is undeservedly taking a position that rightfully belongs to someone like me.
