Wale is never timid when broaching a hot topic. During yesterday’s airing on ESPN’s Mike & Mike, the discussion on why African Americans are less drawn to playing baseball was asked. Wale decided to fire away his opinion on Twitter stating that young African Americans gravitate less to baseball because they are more captivated by the players in basketball and baseball.

He continued by saying Michael Jordan’s presence and image consumed the youth and attracted them to his “blueprint.”



Wale used to play college football for Robert Morris University and Virginia State as a running back.—Carl Lamarre
