C’Mon Boston, Face It, You’re Racist

Unabashedly racist. For the second time in a week, the Red Sox had an issue with a racial slur. This one wasn’t hurled onto the field, but was spoken in earshot of a five-year-old boy and his father.

Calvin Hennick is white, his wife is African-American, and his son is cute as a button. The Boston Globe reported about the incident, which got the man who uttered the slur ejected and banned for life from Fenway Park. But that’s not enough.
