RED SOX NATION IS FULL OF RACISTS

Los Angeles Angels outfielder Torii Hunter told the Press-Enterprise of Riverside, Calif., that until the last couple of years, he regularly heard racist taunts when visiting Fenway Park in Boston as a member of the Minnesota Twins.

“I’ve been called whatever they call me – a lot – since I was a kid,” Hunter told the newspaper. “My first five or six (years), I was ‘That N-word.’ Some people would chant that out, some people would throw beer or whatever . . . batteries.”
