Another glitch is multiracial players. How much black would be enough to be considered black for this list? 50%? 25%

After reviewing the list all of these guys (with the exception of Ferguson Jenkins - a Canadian) are 100% African-American to the best of my knowledge.


I really detest this kind of list, partially for the reasons you mention above.

But one question for you -- how could you know that ANY of these guys are 100% African-American? Did you do some kind of geneology search on their parents and grandparents?

Yeah, I'm nit picking but I'm just ticked with lists of any kind by "race".
