One of baseball’s most enduring teams has taken a bold step in supporting the Black Lives Matter movement.
The Boston Red Sox had unveiled a BLM banner on Fenway Park’s exterior on July 23.
Needless to say, it did not go over too well with some of the team’s most die hard fans, especially those who do not support the BLM movment.
Here are some of the responses below:
Many Bostonians and others took this opportunity to point out the fact that racism is still very much alive in the city, and that people’s reactions to the team’s decision is proof of that.
This is not the first time the Red Sox address racial injustice:

Do you think more baseball teams, including the Cleveland Indians, should do the same thing?
