They May Not Wear Hoods

Baseball Hall of Famer Hank Aaron, who knows a thing or two about racism, has likened anti-Obama Republicans to the KKK. “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,” Aaron told USA Today Sports. “The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”
