Dear Editor,

President Donald Trump’s claim that there was nothing about race in his harsh criticism of NFL protesters is disingenuous at best. In fact, it is part of a pattern of dog whistles to his alt-right supporters.

Saying “get that son of a b**ch off the field” unmistakably references Cap Anson’s infamous outburst, “get that n***er off the field,” which led directly to the establishment of the color line in 19th century baseball.
