    Prooooooooooobably a bigger deal than turning down $13 million and retiring because the GM doesn't want your kid hanging around the dugout so much...

    I wonder what it was about the situation that made him feel he couldn't stay and make his feelings heard.

    Never fun to deal with bigotry, but I'm too confrontational to let haters win. The *one* racist teacher I had in my educational career was my 11th grade high school AP history teacher, who gave me the only B of my academic career pre-college even though I clearly deserved an A. I didn't complain, I just went out an got a perfect score on the AP exam, the only one in my high school to do so who did not also get an A in the class.

    I guess eyebrows were raised, and the school registrar and counselor mentioned it to him, because on the first day of 12th grade he came up to me in a stairwell and offered to change the grade. I told him "Nope, don't need it. I knew what you were, and now everybody does," before walking off. #byyyyeee
