    • Racial Segregation in Baseball
      Bender's rant about robots at the blernsball game is an allusion to the racial segregation in pre-50's baseball, when African-American players were not allowed to play in the Majors despite their obvious skill. Bender also mentions 'Wireless Joe Jackson,' a name obviously based on Shoeless Joe Jackson, the most famous of the 1919 Black Sox banned from baseball.
