Barnicle on Racism in Boston

“Adam Jones of the Baltimore Orioles was the subject of a racial slur hurled from some fan behind the dugout and it resurrected to many the dismal memories that have continued to stain the reputation of Boston as a racist city, and it’s horrendous the way that this continues,” said Morning Joe’s veteran columnist Mike Barnicle, a Boston native. “There’s no excuse for it – no explanation for it. We have a huge problem in this country still with racism.” Hear the rest of the conversation with Morning Joe host Joe Scarborough about what happened to center fielder Jones at a game this week against the Boston Red Sox at Fenway Park.
