Executive summary: MLB player, suspended for racist remarks
Interview with Sports Illustrated, January 2000, discussing New York City: "It's the most hectic, nerve-racking city. Imagine having to take the 7 Train to the ballpark, looking like you're riding through Beirut next to some kid with purple hair, next to some queer with AIDS, right next to some dude who just got out of jail for the fourth time, right next to some 20-year-old mom with four kids. It's depressing." The same interview had him refer to a black teammate as a "fat monkey." For these remarks, he was suspended for 14 games.
Now a conservative pundit.
