    The percentage of African-Americans playing Major League Baseball is at an all-time low and Gary Sheffield says he has a theory why that's the case.

    In an interview with GQ magazine that's currently on newsstands, the typically outspoken Tigers designated hitter said Latin players have replaced African-Americans as baseball's most prevalent minority because they are easier to control.

    "I called it years ago. What I called is that you're going to see more black faces, but there ain't no English going to be coming out. … [It's about] being able to tell [Latin players] what to do -- being able to control them," he told the magazine.

    "Where I'm from, you can't control us. You might get a guy to do it that way for a while because he wants to benefit, but in the end, he is going to go back to being who he is. And that's a person that you're going to talk to with respect, you're going to talk to like a man.

    "These are the things my race demands. So, if you're equally good as this Latin player, guess who's going to get sent home? I know a lot of players that are home now can outplay a lot of these guys."

    According to a 2005 report by the University of Central Florida Institute for Diversity and Ethics in Sport, only 8.5 percent of major leaguers were African-American -- the lowest percentage since the report was initiated in the mid-1980s. By contrast, whites comprised 59.5 percent of the majors' player pool, Latinos 28.7 percent and Asians 2.5.

    The Associated Press contributed to this report.

    He is whacked, almost to the degree of Reggie White. At least Reggie was a nice guy.

    If this was a white guy he'd be lucky to get the Don imus treatment, heck with this crap he'd probably be treated like the Duke Lacrosse players were

    Trust me this story will be mostly hidden or ignored because after all the only racists are whites

    It is a lot easier to throw a ball through a hoop, then hit a curve ball.

    Also, it is a lot easier to say

    "I did this, or I did that" In Basketball.

    In Baseball you might go several days without doing anything, and you played in every game.

    That's some pretty racist stuff.

    Frickin' 'tard ...... Another example that you can't remove stupid from people just because they're rich.
