Protesters make a statement to Major League Baseball during Red Sox-Athletics game

Drellich

Those in attendance to see the Boston Red Sox take on the Oakland A's yesterday at Fenway Park sure got an eyeful, and it had nothing to do with the action on the field.

There was a chant of boos from the crowd when Red Sox security was forced to remove the sign and escort the protesters out of the ballpark.

Four fans were ejected from Fenway Park after they unveiled an anti-racism banner over the Green Monster on Wednesday night.

"We are a group of white anti-racist protestors", the fans tell the Washington Post.

Is racism just as big in the United States as the sport referred to as America's pastime?

Tessier later admitted to moving the front tag off the auto , as well as throwing away Wallen's driver's license and phone. Although police believe Tessier was the father of the child Wallen was carrying, the text message claimed that he was not.

"What it sounds like is, it was in support of Black Lives Matter, which is against racism", Walsh said.

"There were originally about eight people involved who had this idea, and those eight people come from various organizing groups in the Boston area".

In May, the Red Sox apologized to the Baltimore Orioles' Adam Jones after the outfielder was abused with racist slogans and had peanuts thrown at him. The person said the quintet was "not associated with any particular organization although all of us do work as organizers in various Boston groups that combat white supremacy and racism". "Certainly they have the right to express their opinions, and I know that we have a policy that you can't affix a banner from anywhere in the ballpark". But the stunt left many people baffled as they struggled to decipher what the message actually meant.

Good thing it wasn't really them, as Rob Manfred would have had no choice but to dissolve Major League Baseball under their vast and persuasive pressure and then all of us would be in a bad spot.
