Sweet action for kids 'n' cretins. Marjoram and capers.

Wow, only in Boston.

I really think it would be good if these people were murdered.

I liked this version:

"There's something more honest, he believed, about traditional methods of mass starvation, labour camps, and machine gunning millions to death. Stalin was a vinyl guy who sneered at Truman converting everything to compact disc." - Thomas Jefferson

"But the gorilla thinks otherwise!"

They're Black Lives matter supporters and say they were just stating fact.

Update (10:50 p.m. ET): Evan Drellich of CSN New England has an interview with one of the demonstrators behind the banner. There were five people involved—three who held the banner, and two documenting the situation. (One was nearby and the other was further away inside the stadium; the latter was not removed from the park with the others.)

“We want to remind everyone that just as baseball is fundamental to American culture and history, so too is racism,” the group said in a written statement. “White people need to wake up to this reality before white supremacy can truly be dismantled. We urge anyone who is interested in learning more or taking action to contact their local racial justice organization.”

I wonder whether our confusion was part of the design's intent, to make it harder to ignore and force something more conscious in our reaction. If so, kudos to them.

I can summarize Greatful Dead night in six words:

SO. MANY. WHITE. PEOPLE. WITH. DREADLOCKS.

It was absolutely terrifying.

EDIT: there have been too many Jimmy Buffett concerts at Wrigley for me to mock you too hard over music. I mean, one is too many.
Buy Theo, get Pearl Jam. Non-negotiable.

Did the Dreadlocks and Mullets at least annihilate each other afterwards?

There was a woman with a mullet sitting behind me! I would actually take the mullets over the white dreadlocks.
