Slave owners had no problem having sex with their female slaves. That this guy is attracted to a model is understandable. That a black model would date him if he made racist comments is the thing I can't fathom.

Sports talk-host Jim Rome had the best take on Rocker, years ago, when he dabbled in acting a bit - with a few bit parts here and there.

"I hear John Rocker is now into acting - what's up with that. I guess he's perfect for the role of the psycho-redneck-racist-washed-up relief pitcher who can't get anybody out."

It's fun to MAKE fun of John Rocker... but I hope he's coming out of his deep seated fear of other skin colors and cultures. It's not fun to be like that.

We laugh about it, but the person may be living a tortured life with nobody close to him who cares.

He may have a deep fear of other people that causes this problem.

I hope for his sake that he is making his peace with other races. I'd much rather see that than the guy hang himself. It would be a waste of what could be the life of a decent human being.

What I've found out about black culture in the US is that they're very loving and very forgiving. Many black people are good at helping white people overcome the lies and fears spread amongst them. They're there to help.

There's a black lady where I work who befriended a white woman who was in trouble once, who actually had been taught that black people HAVE TAILS. I know how comical that sounds, but it's also tragic in that this woman actually BELIEVED this far-fetched tale.

Truth: what Spike Lee said was that white people still don't know how to relate to black people in society as human beings. It shows in the way blacks are cast in white films. They're always either individuals with terrible weaknesses like being a drug addict or criminal OR they're like a witch doctor or a spirit or something. This isn't JUST John Rocker's problem. It's something we all have a little touch of.

Touching on a comment made by the poster above, It seems to me that society is increasingly run of fear of other people.
Iraq, Iran, Mexico, North Korea, China, Russia

To name just a few, All of this (for the most part) hyped up fear is just to jusify an arms budget large enough to buy most countries.
Of course this fear filters down to even the lowest level of society.

Lack of knowledge and inteligence turns this propoganda to hatred, the KKK don't know why they hate, they just do.
Its mob mentality, and its dangerous, Hitler used similar tactics to fuel his little European tour.
