It is obvious many Americans no longer believe in Freedom of Speech. Like here in Australia we will lose our basic Freedoms.

Let the guy stay as the manager. Cubans in Miami should not let this incident make them look like the villains.
Just don't buy Marlin's tickets for this season and that's it. That will be more than enough punishment for a guy who is (and will keep)apologizing out of pressure lest he loses the job.

Apparently eager to head-off worse retribution (and damage–control ticket sales) on April 9th a moping Guillen issued a groveling apology at a Miami press Conference.
“I am here on my knees,” he whimpered. “I am here to say I am sorry with my heart in my hands…I hurt a lot of people’s feelings. Now I want to apologize because I did the wrong thing. It was a very stupid comment…If I don’t learn from this mistake, then I will call myself dumb.”More...
