This isn't a knock against Baker, no indeed. In fact, Baker is overqualified to even be in this particular discussion. But despite Major League Baseball preaching the "gospel of inclusion" with regards to hiring more minority candidates, the numbers tell a different story.

If we view our time on earth from the perspective of soul learning, we can come to realize that we are all in service to each other. So it is possible that even the person or person with the characteristics we perceive to be the most distasteful, can yield rich lessons for our souls.
