No one is claiming that there aren't other heritages in MLB. Where do you see that argument? This is happening because the Spanish-speaking population is growing fast, and the Reds are making attempts to attract them at multiple levels -- from the player and personnel level to the fan base.
It's not about where it ends. It's about where it begins. Quite honestly, I'm sure that if there were a large enough Japanese population of Reds fans, we'd see a Japanese jersey as well. And we may still. Crass commercialism is actually quite democratic that way.
