Sign Reading “Racism Is As American As Baseball” Appears on Green Monster at Fenway Park (PICS)
Controversy struck tonight’s game between the Oakland Athletics and Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park, as fans seated atop the Green Monster hung a sign reading “Racism Is As American As Baseball” during the fourth inning.
According to the Boston Globe, the sign was draped on the Green Monster for a few minutes before the fans were escorted out of the ballpark. Not word yet on whether this is an endorsement or condemnation of racism, but I’m going to hope it’s the latter…
Although, this is Boston we’re talking about here.
