Hank Aaron is a racist.

On the 40th anniversary of his momentous 715th home run that broke Babe Ruth’s MLB home run record, which is the most meaningful in all of sports, Hank Aaron equated Republicans who oppose President Barack Obama’s policies to the KKK.

Aaron implied that conservatives are racists who now wear “neckties and starched shirts” instead of hoods.

In an interview with USA Today’s Bob Nightengale on Tuesday, “Hammerin’ Hank” lamented that the country has not progressed far enough on race relations, saying that though the nation has a black president, “President Obama is left with his foot stuck in the mud from all of the Republicans with the way he’s treated.”

“We have moved in the right direction, and there have been improvements, but we still have a long ways to go in the country,” Aaron said. “The bigger difference is that back then they had hoods. Now they have neckties and starched shirts.”
