A sign reading “Racism is as American as baseball” was displayed at the top of the Green Monster at Fenway Park on Wednesday night during the Oakland A’s – Boston Red Sox game. As you would expect, security quickly removed the sign and those holding it.
When I first saw this, I thought Boston should be embarrassed, but many people have read this sign as being anti-racism. And many people have read it the other way. We’ll reserve ultimate judgement until we hear more.
