Hmmm. Somehow I missed all that. Googled “Luke Scott Felix Pie”. I read this article for some context.
It’s... interesting. But it sounds like he loved his Latino teammates, Adam Jones quoted as saying he never found Scott to be a racist or else he’d have squashed it. Pie loved him. Doesn’t nearly sound anything close to the type of guys Schilling and Hader are. Despite being a gun loving right winger.
With some people who have that kind of hate, it's an abstract kind of hate that doesn't apply to people they actually know... it's only aimed at "them"... but people they know don't count as "them"... they become real, not just a cartoon...
My best friend in teenage years often came to my house and I often went to his. His father was a great person in most ways, but he had all the standard hateful stuff about "the blacks". At the same time, he worked with a couple black guys... and he not only liked them just fine, he'd go out of his way if they needed a favor... he'd give them the shirt off his back, just like he'd do with other people... because they were actual people to him.... same thing with my friend's older sister's black friend, she'd stay over for dinner and that was fine, he liked her, would joke around with her... but he couldn't stand "the blacks"...
