Boston police pay tribute to white man for Black History Month

Unbelievable, just how racist and tone deaf can these people be? It’s offensive, racist, and downright disrespectful. Whoever posted this should lose their job. We have to do better for our African-American brothers and sisters. We owe them so much.

BOSTON -- The Boston Police Department is facing heavy criticism online for a now-deleted Twitter post for Black History Month that celebrated a white man.

The original post on the department's official Twitter account Sunday was in honor of former Boston Celtics coach Red Auerbach. The department tweeted that it was paying tribute to Auerbach for being the first NBA coach to draft a black player, start five African-American players, and hire the NBA's first African-American head coach.


This is an excerpt from the article. It sounds like Auerbach did a lot for African Americans in helping them break the color barrier in the NBA.

It's racist to relegate Black History to one month out of the year, but I digress...

Isn't there some threshold at which a poster is banned for negative reps?

Banned for what? The only reason I have neg reps is because all the right wingers on this board don’t know how to handle someone with a different opinion as theirs and they lash out. Typical republicans, disagree with their close minded views and they will make you pay for it.

Then explain why all the other leftist posters on here don't have negative reps.

Perhaps because they aren't continuously making idiotic troll posts like you.

It's quite refreshing being called a racist everytime he posts. Keeps me grounded.

Leave it to espen to take something entirely out of context then cry about what they created. Is Tom Jackson gonna blubber on air again?

If what went on with Red AUuerbachs tenure/career wasn’t historical,then what would one call it?

And a VERY big part of Black history and the league itself, now overwhelmingly black.

Fail to see any problem here. ESPN now sucks. Shame.

How is this possibly “racist”?

Are the Boston PD claiming Red Auerbach was inherently superior to the black players?

Why would he then stoop to drafting the first player and starting 5 players?

That’s now racist... sad.

Maybe they aren’t as left leaning as they need to be. The only way to fight evil is by presenting evidence that makes you question things. You get offended by everything yet you are the ones who call us “snowflakes” lol

Or perhaps they are better able to articulate their beliefs without coming across as a troll.
