Barry Bonds: White People or Steroids? Some of His Best Friends are White . . . .

By Debbie Schlussel
Question: Which does San Francisco Giants star Barry Bonds prefer: White people or steroids? If you believe former Chicago White Sox slugger, Ron Kittle, the answer is the latter. And Bonds’ response seems to bolster the allegations. In a new book by Kittle, “Tales from the White Sox Dugout,” Kittle quotes Bonds as saying, “I don’t sign for white people,” regarding autographing a jersey for a charity event. In “defending” himself, Bonds says, “I was married to a woman who was white.” Sounds like the, “Some of my best friends are Black” refrain.

It’s funny how Barry “Steroids” Bonds probably thinks that people don’t want him to surpass Ruth or break Aaron’s home run record because he’s black.
Which, given how he has cheated his way to the record, really denigrates, disgraces and spits on the true struggle and mental torture that Hank Aaron had to put up with when he was near the Babe’s home run total with all the hate mail/death threats/racial epithets, etc. that he had to go through.
Barry’s pathetic attitude toward the fans that pay his over-inflated salary reminds me of an incident as a 10-year old kid in the late 70’s. I was at Yankee Stadium with front row seats in left field for a Yankees-Tigers game, and asked the left fielders on both sides to sign my baseball. It was bad enough that the Yankee left fielder, Roy White for that game, ignored me, but that was his perogative. The Tiger left fielder, Ron LeFlore, asked for the ball, then ran in the dugout with it and forgot about the whole thing (and ignored me the rest of the game; good thing I’m not one of those crazies who throw things at players and get arrested).
