Tuesday was the 40th anniversary of Hank Aaron’s record-breaking 715th career home run, and while speaking to Bob Nightengale of USA Today on the historic day, Hammerin’ Hank went on a political rant against Republicans, comparing them to the Ku Klux Klan. Here are the relevant quotes:

“To remind myself,” Aaron tells USA TODAY Sports, “that we are not that far removed from when I was chasing the record. If you think that, you are fooling yourself. A lot of things have happened in this country, but we have so far to go. There’s not a whole lot that has changed.”
