The Several Crucifixions Of Jackie Robinson, Number 42

by SNS Saturday, Apr. 16, 2016 at 8:03 AM

Ken Burns and Brian Helgeland focus on the heroism of Jackie Robinson

The Several Crucifix...
6.jpg, image/jpeg, 500x527

Jackie Robinson, the first African American to integrate

major league baseball, had been court martialed while

in the army for refusing to go to the back of the bus

in Ft. Hood, Texas.. Once when with other black players he was told

at a gas station he had to use the outdoor toilet,

he replied to the owner to remove the gas hose, that they

would not be purchasing 99 gallons for their bus. The owner caved.

After Robinson joined the Brooklyn Dodgers, he was hit in the head

(beaned) by opposing pitchers more than any other player. He

was beaned by pop bottles from racist fans of other cities.

He was deliberately spiked by opposing team players sliding into first.

He was victimized by the rulings of racist umpires. He was told

in southern towns by sheriff deputies that he would be arrested if he

did not leave the playing field. In one Florida town a mob of men came to hurt him.

. "In Sanford, Florida, the police chief threatened to stop the game

if Robinson did not leave the field; in Jacksonville, Florida, the stadium

was inexplicably padlocked shut on game day; in DeLand, Florida the scheduled

day game was called off on account of faulty electrical lighting." (Wikipedia)

He was bumped from planes in favor of whites. Some of the Dodgers signed

a petition that they did not want to play with a black.Those who persisted were

traded. Robinson was subjected to racist slurs by an opposing

manager every time he came to bat. He was refused service

in restaurants, and like Jesse Owens, Olympic champion, who after

a ticker tape parade in his honor in NYC had to go through the

back door of the Waldorf Astoria, Robinson was denied hotel rooms.

Black reporters such as the one hired by Dodgers owner Branch

Rickey were not allwed in the press box.

Robinson had been hired by Branch Rickey, a deeply spiritual man,

who told him that as a student at Ohio Wesleyan, he, Rickey, had not

done enough to defend a black player.

Throughout major league baseball, in 1997 the number 42 was

permanently retired to honor Jackie Robinson, The above are all incidents

described in the movie "42" (Robinson's number), written and directed by Brian

Helgeland, with Chadwick Boseman and Harrison Ford

playing Robinson and Rickey respectively.

Jackie Robinson was born Jan 31, 1919 in Cairo Georgia around 6 PM

Robinson's chart with 4 planets in aquarius and with the moon and sun conjunct at 11

degree and venus and uranus conjunct as well indicates an old soul, one who has passed

many tests in other lives and has been incarnated in several races. Only 1 in

approximately 5200 people would have that aspect. In addition Robinson had pluto

and jupiter in cancer, indicative of a nurturing and sensitive man

with mercury in capricorn,

a man attracted to discipline and brevity of speech.

In the movie, Branch Rickey tells Robinson that

he must like their mutual Savior turn the other cheek.

How many could take and take and take physical

injury and insult and still bring their team to pennant



After the Brooklyn

Dodgers of the National League,

the Cleveland Indians in the American

League became the 2nd team to

integrate baseball, hiring Larry Doby.

It is ironic that the owners of the Indians

continue to be insensitive to Native American

objections to the caricature Chief Wahoo.

Before either Brooklyn or Cleveland, the government

of Cuba had welcomed Jackie Robinson.

April 15, 1947.... the fires of resurrection as evidenced by 2 planets in aries and 2 in leo, with the moon in aquarius, sign of the power of the social pioneer, arcing the light of Robinson's FOUR planets in aquarius.

Robinson would not live to see the retiring of 42 in all baseball on the 50th anniversary of his 1st playing for the Dodges, April 15, 1947. He and Rachel Robinson had 3 children.

Ken Burns' 4 hour documentary on Jackie Robinson


Free chart is from In 2015, Virginia, Florida, Georgia, Texas, Oklahoma, Missouri remained racist execution states. As of April 12, 2016, the racist state institutions of Florida, Texas, Georgia and Alabama had murdered prisoners.

As parimaries are conducted in NY, PA, CT, MD, NJ, IN, CA and other states, may the racist war candidates Hillary Clinton, Donald Trump, Ted Cruz and John Kasich be repudiated.
