'Racism is as American as baseball' sign hangs at Fenway


A fan who took a photo of the banner and posted the photo said the banner was unfurled in between the top and bottom of the fourth inning.

A giant banner that said "Racism is as American as baseball" was draped over the Green Monster during the Red Sox-A's game at Fenway Park on Wednesday. The game was briefly delayed while security handled the situation.

Security reeled the banner back within minutes and escorted the fans from their seats, according to CSNNE. In fact, earlier this season Red Sox pitcher David Price and Orioles outfielder Adam Jones have both claimed to have had racial slurs hurled at them from the Fenway Park stands. There was no immediate comment from the Red Sox.

The black sign with white letters read, "Racism is as American as baseball".

More recently, Red Sox owner John Henry told the Boston Herald in August that he planned to lead a movement to rename Yawkey Way due to former owner Tom Yawkey's reputation for racial intolerance.
