Quote:
A recent series of leaked emails shows Cubs co-owner Joe Ricketts, father of club chairman and fellow co-owner Tom Ricketts, sympathizing and at times engaging in racist subject matter. Warning: some of these emails are incredibly offensive.


This article has all the emails:

Yeah, I guess. It's rare we get a glimpse behind the curtain though.

This. High level corporate anything is about the least woke environment you can be in.

Hardly a high-level corporate exec, when it is entirely a family-controlled business. Granted, high level corp execs don't always have real oversight from their golfing buddies. With this, at least a Corp exec would have to suffer through multi-million severance package or something.

This is a bit different than high level exec, though. I doubt Ricketts gets the Donald Sterling notoriety here.

And Not to excuse it, but I thought the emails would be worse. haven't read them all though.

Coincidence? I think not.

I didn't really expect awful. I expected garden-variety ignorance, insularity, and contempt, and there's plenty of that. To me, what's striking is just how banal the whole thing is. This stuff is in the guy's e-mail feed for years. And the half-assed walk-part-of-it-back statement gives me a very good sense of how many people that man and his entire family have [expletive] over for generations.

Not that there is much public trust, but the drip drip drip of reminders of how people bond through racist conspiracy theories and jokes makes sure there won't be any.

The guys who signed Chapman, played Smack That [expletive] Up when he walked off the field, and came back to the well again for Addison Russel are deeply racist? I'm shocked. [expletive] the Cubs.
