In Buck Showalter's post-game press conference after the 8-2 win, a young African-American reporter, who said he was from the affected areas, asked the manager what advice he would give to young black males in the city, noting Showalter was "well respected" in that part of town. His response cut to the core of white privilege. "I've never been black, OK? So I can't put myself there. I've never faced the challenges that they face, OK?" he said, then added, "It's a pet peeve of mine when somebody says, 'Well, I know what they're feeling. Why don't they do this? Why doesn't somebody do that?' You have never been black, OK? So just slow down a little bit."
