I find this hard to comprehend. So you're saying that if the Negro Leagues proved to the world that they were equal or better than the NL/AL by beating them in the World Series, they would still not be as popular simply because they were black?

If society's mentality was that horrible back then, then I'm glad I didn't live it.
