Small group of protesters take credit for Fenway banner

Posted September 15, 2017

Fans at Fenway Park in Boston were escorted out of the stadium after they draped a banner about racism over the left field wall, or "The Green Monster" as it is nicknamed, on Wednesday night.

Fenway security ejected four people affiliated with the stunt from the stadium. McCaffrey said the banner hung for about a minute before security came and pulled it off and also removed three people who had hung it.

In its own statement, the Red Sox said the fans had "violated" the club's policy on "affixing signs to the ballpark".

One of the group members said that the banner was a response to the racist comments made at the beginning of the game season at Fenway.

"We see Boston continually priding itself as a kind of liberal, not racist city, and are reminded also constantly that it's actually an extremely segregated city", the protester said.

A member of the group later clarified the banner's message and-speaking on the condition of anonymity so as not to detract from the banner's message-explained why the sign was displayed.
