So Many White People Are So Embarrassing

After racially motivated attack, former STL Cardinals player says he may leave St. Louis

Former St. Louis Cardinal Curt Ford says he was attacked at a gas station:
St. Louis County police from the Fenton Precinct arrested James Street, 37, of the 400 block of Saline Road, a white man who allegedly slugged the black former Cardinals player after shouting racial slurs at him and telling him to "go back to Ferguson," the Post-Dispatch has learned.
"I was sucker-punched, blindsided," Ford said. "I was walking into the store and hit from my blind side."
The argument occurred with the two men pulled up to the same gas pump. Ford says he loves St. Louis, but this might be enough to make him move:
"I'm going to let the authorities handle this situation, but I've had enough of St. Louis," Ford said in a phone interview Thursday. "You hear about this kind of stuff happening, and I always knew it existed because of my previous experience working here in St. Louis, but you try to keep away from it and there is just no way you can do that unless you stay inside like a hermit.
"I just want justice. It's all I want."
This is another in a string of recent racial incidents—aside from the shooting of Mike Brown—including Cardinals fans chanting "Let's Go, Darren!" at Ferguson protesters and a man taunting two woman who threatened to call police—telling them "I'm white, bitch, call them twice."
