Nobody On Our Side
“We can’t fight our way through this, Robinson. We’ve got no army. There’s virtually nobody on our side. No owners, no umpires, very few newspapermen. And I’m afraid that many fans will be hostile. We’ll be in a tough position. We can win only if we can convince the world that I’m doing this because you’re a great ballplayer and a fine gentlemen.” Jackie Robinson had to persevere through the cynical comments and all the opposition. (Robinson, pg. 293)
