Boston Sports Teams Will Play Anti-Racism PSA Before Game

More pre-game bullshit.

Quote:
Five Boston professional sports teams will air an anti-racism public service announcement at each of their home games.

Per Adrian Walker of the Boston Globe, the Boston Red Sox will be the first team to air the anti-racism PSA at Fenway Park on Sept. 28. The Boston Bruins, Boston Celtics, New England Patriots and New England Revolution will also show the video "featuring athletes calling on fans to take a stand against racism and hate speech at sports venues."

During a May 1 game at Fenway Park between the Baltimore Orioles and Red Sox, Orioles center fielder Adam Jones said he received racist taunts from fans in the stands.

"A disrespectful fan threw a bag of peanuts at me," he said, via Bob Nightengale of USA Today. "I was called the N-word a handful of times tonight. Thanks. Pretty awesome."

Red Sox CEO Sam Kennedy told Walker the incident involving Jones gave them the idea to open up a dialogue about racism.

"When the incidents in May occurred, one of the first things we recognized was sports teams are high-profile, and we have the opportunity to help lead a high-level discussion around this," he said. "We wanted to take the lead in taking a stand against racism."

On Sept. 13, a group of five fans hung a banner over the Green Monster in left field at Fenway Park that read "Racism is as American as baseball."

One of the group members told CSN New England's Evan Drellich the sign was intended "to have a conversation about" the history of racism in Boston.

They take the very action they complain about in order to get people to complain about the action.

It's pathetic. But, then, that's fitting, given our corporations and politicans.

Sounds eerily similar to a Eric Holders proposed national conversation on race. (The one where he speaks, and you listen)

I look forward to sports teams telling the world that judging people by race is horrible, because it's just a pigmentation difference, while the NFL has zero white cornerbacks and 3/4 (or more) of the NBA is black.

Have you gone to a game in Boston? I don't think other places need to do this. But Boston is notoriously out of control. I'm not sure what your angle is. Since racism is not okay, there shouldn't be any issue with encouraging fans not to do it.

**** Boston! Perhaps they could focus on NOT being the lap of US-based terrorism!


And I'm sure this is meant to distract attention from the FACT THAT THEY'RE MOTHER****ING CHEATERS! The whole area is comprised of cheating, racist, terrorist assholes!

But that's JMO!

Hilarious! Yet, sadly true. More like a lecture about race.

Agreed^. Talking about black and Hispanic racism isn't a terrible thing and I'm interested to see how they approach that angle here.

Using professional sports to engage in behavioral psychology and politics will be the death knell of sports. It's only going to create more conflict and hate, while certain folks lecture others about their moral superiority—people like you. The United States is turning into a behavioral psychology clinic.

Boston is an extremely liberal city, despite it's fightin' Lace Curtain Irish population, that still lives there. It is mostly that ethnic group that is like that on race.

Prove it. I only have seen it this bad since 9/11. Look what's happened to ESPN.

But I am talkin' about sports organizations calling for a discussion (more a lecture) on race—not reporting where blacks finally broke discrimination barriers or female reporters in men's locker rooms reflecting on changes happening in the society. Ya' know just behaviors of the folks in the industry.

It'll be interesting to hear them address the 12x higher rate that blacks kill whites than vice versa. Should be fascinating stuff.

Another reason for people to watch the games from home. It will be nice when this current fad passes.
