Salute to the Young men of Jackie Robinson West here on the South Side of Chicago .. Positive Chicago .. True Love #jrw #chicagoartist #southside #love JRW JRW (at South Chicago)
I’m really mad at you, Tumblr for not signal boosting these kids. You’re so happy to talk about all of the negative things happening but fail to realize that while we need to address the negative, we have to celebrate the positive. Apart from playing baseball well, these kids are the definition of humility and sportsmanship. They have become a part of history. Thousands of young black Chicagoans are looking not only at these boys but at the support they have received across the city.

Ernie Banks, Mr. Cub, the first African-American player on the Chicago Cubs and mentee of Jackie Robinson said:
"Jackie wanted to make sure I knew how important it all was. What these kids is important to notice too.

Let’s raise these kids up!
I’m super proud of them!! #JRW #JackieRobinsonWest #ChiTownStandUp

When I have kids, I’m going to make them a “Body Book”. In this book, will be pictures of non-retouched, non-sexual naked bodies of varying sizes, shapes, and colors, with a particular emphasis on breasts, vaginas, and penises (penii?). Nothing sexual or explicit. Just a penis being a penis. A…
