Yahoo subtly touches on World Series storyline

The headline writer deftly swept the core of the issue under the rug on this one.  Here are some other ways they could have tiptoed around the topic:

– World Series highlighted by some Blacks

Upton, Howard, Rollins, Crawford Blacks among shining October stars

– Black guys playing in World Series this time

– In this World Series, Blacks are good

– Black is back in World Series

– Blackness up 500% in World Series

– Baseball playing Blacks to highlight Fall Classic

– World Series match-up proving Blacks also play baseball

– Landmark moment as Blacks end up in World Series

– World Series finally integrated

– Rays and Phillies both have active Blacks on roster

– AC/DC to perform "Back in Black" at World Series

– Black players finally outshining whitie on baseball’s grandest stage

– Don’t adjust your TVs, those are Blacks playing baseball

– Finally, a true ‘World’ Series, with Black African-Americans

HOWEVER, we have yet to see any headlines today that read:

Hamels, Utley Some white guys key Phils past Rays in Game 1

    Honestly, I’m surprised you let the “Manuel folksy, but not articulate” headline slide!!!

    Now black-cize that one: “Obama folksy, but not articulate”
    “Black Players folksy, but not articulate”
    “Rollins & Howard folksy, but not articulate”
