Unless you are running snow leopard (10.6) or earlier, as of today you can't run Starcraft 1. Your best bet is to play in Win 7 via bootcamp. Hopefully blizzard will update all their 'classic' games (Starcraft, diablo II, Warcraft 3) to run on modern macs but i'm not holding my breath. I wish blizzard was more like valve in that regard as they are porting their original goldsource games (half-life 1) to both mac and linux.

So is Blizz just being lazy taking our money & not supporting their own games, or is this a purposeful slap in the face if you own a Mac?

it hardly works under win 7 either, so i'm guessing it's the former

I would also love to play Brood War and would buy Diablo II if they fixed this issue.
