Cops Apologize for Honoring White Coach in Black History Month Tweet
Hat Tip: Weasel Zippers
The following article appeared in Lawand Crime on February 11th
Black History Month: That time of
year where we honor important black figures in American history. You know, like
Boston Celtics Coach Red Auerbach…a white
“In honor of #BlackHistoryMonth, we
pay tribute to @celtics legend #RedAuerbach for being the 1st @NBA coach to
draft a black player in 1950, field an all African-American starting five in
1964 and hire the league’s 1st African-American head coach (Bill Russell) in
1966,” said a now-deleted tweet released Sunday by the Boston Police
This played badly on Twitter. It
doesn’t help that Boston has an
ugly reputation when it comes to anti-black racism.
“Only in #Boston do the @bostonpolice honor Red Auerbach
So we already have the shortest month and now this. Please file this under Hell
Nah aka Not Having it aka Not Ok.”Tito
A reporter for Mother Jones
ribbed the BPD when the outlet solicited reader contributions to a Black
History Month story.
Boston Mayor Marty Walsh sent a statement
Monday morning calling the post “completely inappropriate and a gross
misrepresentation of how we are honoring Black History Month in Boston.”
The BPD released a tweet Monday morning apologizing for the earlier
post, and followed up with a statement from Police Commissioner William B. Evans.
“On behalf of the Boston Police
Department, I offer my sincerest apologies for last night’s social media post
on Black History Month,” the statement said. “The tweet was insensitive and does not reflect the
values of the Boston Police Department.”
The Auerbach tweet was replaced with
one honoring the aforementioned Bill Russell, who became Celtics coach after
Auerbach was promoted to general manager.
In honor of #BlackHistoryMonth
we pay tribute to Bill Russell, one of the greatest @celtics of all time and the first
African-American head coach in the history of the NBA when he was named @celtics coach on November 15, 1966.
Ed.There was no mention of Bill
Russell “taking a knee” in solidarity with Colin Kaepernick. But then, that isn’t
racist…it’s a display of racial pride, right?
