27. ? So you want to call us rednecks

because of the rich white master that owned the team?

Edwin B. Henderson, the black Washington public schools director of physical education, observed the crowd before a game in September 1940 and wrote a subsequent letter to The Washington Post.

That 32,000 mass of Americans standing tense, erect and fervidly at attention at Griffith Stadium Sunday, when our national anthem was being played, was tremendously impressive and solemn, Henderson wrote. In this setting, we have democracy at its best. Crowded and packed together, Jew and gentile, black and white, thrilled and slumped with the fortunes of Marshalls Indians.

Maybe you should consider who you are insulting before inserting foot in mouth.
