So now we have to change the name of Yawkey Way because Tom Yawkey was the last owner to hire a black player? What about the other 14 owners who did nothing until Branch Rickey of the Dodgers signed Jackie Robinson? Are they less guilty?

Let’s take down the Jefferson Memorial because Thomas Jefferson had slaves. But isn’t he the guy who was responsible for the Declaration of Independence?

Take down the statues of George Washington, he had slaves. Wait! Wasn’t he the person who led the fight for our independence?

While you are destroying much of our history, think about the persons you admire, such as Hillary Clinton, Harry Reid, Al Sharpton, etc. – some of the leading low-lifes in our history.
