Boston has a reputation for racism. At least that’s what I’ve been told. Still, Boston outfielder Carl Crawford had to leave town on assignment to (allegedly) experience New England racism. Crawford was on assignment with the Portland Sea Dogs last week when an off-duty police officer allegedly called him a, “Monday.” The officer from Leominster, Mass is “a 5-year veteran and white, with no prior disciplinary issues.” The officer will be placed on desk duty when he returns from vacation.
Better late than never.
Who could have seen this coming?
How was he not tossed?
