Although the numbers are down today for African Americans playing
professional baseball, Blacks have made tremendous strides in the sport.
Now the U.S. Postal Service has released commemorative stamps of two
African American great baseball players as part of its Major League
Baseball All-Stars stamp series, to be released on July 21. The two are:
Larry Doby and Willie Stargell.
According to a recent study, diners may be treated differently by
restaurant wait staff because of race. The survey, “Dining While Black,”
of 2000 servers in 18 North Carolina eateries found that 38.5 percent
of the servers discriminated against Black customers.
