A commentator for the Astros named Preston Wilson made a joke that used the word "slavery" during the game on Sunday night. He's a former ballplayer, and he's black, and it was a joke about baseball. But if you like to get worked up, you can join in the controversy on Twitter.
On the Astros broadcast today, Preston Wilson said, "I actually had somebody ask me if I could go back in history and change one thing, I skipped right over slavery and went to the slider." He later walked it back but this is absolutely unacceptable. pic.twitter.com/Tt3s40mUpm— Jeff Blogwell (@tylercstafford) May 20, 2018
