SAN FRANCISCO (KRON) — The City of Boston stung again with a racism problem connected to sports.
When a few Fenway Park so-called fans hurled racial insults at Baltimore’s Adam Jones, it made me think about how social media has spawned a generation of tough guys.
I have never understood adult people sitting in the stands screaming obscenity at athletes.
At age 15, playing basketball, I used to wonder why a parent would make nasty comments about me while sitting on his rear end drinking a beer.
Which brings me to social media–do you know anyone who enjoys his job, is happy in a relationship, and has a few good friends who spends their time insulting people on Twitter or Facebook?
I would love to review the social media accounts of these poor souls who used the N-word at Fenway.
Racists are racists, but it’s a little easier to attack someone when you know they physically can’t get to you.
When it comes to sports, broadcasting, or any other public jobs, those who can’t…tweet.
You give a coward an extra tool, and before you know it, he takes his perceived power to a sports stadium.
Sports is entertainment, not a vehicle for hate.
