Sammy Sosa then, and Sammy Sosa now, don't look like the same human being. They don't even look related to each other. pic.twitter.com/bp9QxysV3y— LEFT✍🏾 (@LeftSentThis) July 13, 2017
I know it's kind of funny with the memes and everything, but jokes aside...Sammy Sosa going as far as altering his skin is a sad sad thing. pic.twitter.com/Ayg7BIsJBK— Tupac Chopra (@gumpnatlien) July 13, 2017

as a dominican, the sammy sosa pic is a sad reminder of the self-hate and psychological damage of white supremacy that still exist among us.— alex medina (@mrmedina) July 13, 2017
