Fuck Adam Jones. Fuck him right in the pussy. He CONSTANTLY does this when he's in Boston. He does this anytime he feels as if attention has been drawn away from him and placed on another teammate, another team, or another pop culture story. He's pulled this shit for 12 years.
Listen, I get how being racist is bad, and I get how racism is still a real and apparent problem in this country. I also get how this CAN and WILL happen in almost any public setting in America, but, it's not something that I'm going to take seriously when Adam Jones complains about it. I'll take it seriously when the word "racism" isn't thrown around willy-nilly to describe a bunch of drunk assholes going a bit over the line and fooling around with the word nigger.
Adam Jones is an adult. He's a millionaire. He plays baseball for a living. So, in essence, STOP being such a little bitch and complaining about your workplace environment. You get paid to have a certain amount of tolerance. This isn't John Rocker running out of the tunnel an getting batteries thrown at him. This isn't disco records being hurled at outfielders in Chicago and fans setting fire to the outfield grass. You sign a contract to play baseball in the United States of America (by the way, the most guaranteed contract in the history of the world), and with those millions and millions of dollars and expensive cars, massive houses and personal assistants comes the price of fans heckling you from the stands.
You don't like your workplace Adam? Then fucking change it. Try out for another position so you don't have to listen to the bullshit from the crowd. Sit in the dugout, go to the minors, retire from the game of baseball. Stop promoting the racist divisions in America that truly exist in the South, in largely populated cities across this great country of ours. It's people like you, Adam, that encourage all people of color to complain of racism in inappropriate settings to get their way, because they know the establishment will bow down in fear of repercussions from the public.
Just play the damn game a keep your mouth shut. It's not like every single fan in the fucking park is screaming nigger at the top of their lungs. People heckle, and while I absolutely discourage them from yelling racist remarks to player's faces, I don't sit here for one second and think they're not going to yell something at all. They are fans, not patrons of a local library. They are supposed to hate the opposing team, and it's players. Try playing for the Yankees.
Oh, and by the way, I've sat in the bleachers, when they were goddamn $3.00/seat. Never in my life, have I ever heard racist comments from any seat at Fenway Park (and the bleachers house the WORST type of people).
Next time you want some attention Adam Jones, why not just make some noise with your bat. You little bitch.
