Ryan Benharris has gone through the list of concerts at Fenway Park since they started in 2003, and found that out of all 66 concerts, only one has had a black headliner - and that even then, Jay-Z had to share billing with Justin Timberlake.
Hosting one (or one half) of a concert by a non-white performer over the course of sixteen years on public permits is discrimination of the most blatant kind.
It’s not just on the city. It’s on the Red Sox. It’s on the artists like Zak Brown Band, Bruce Springsteen, Dave Matthews Band, Pearl Jam, Foo Fighters, Phish, and Billy Joel to at least acknowledge that this is happening in Boston.
Entirely white performers at every show at Fenway Park don’t represent the Red Sox and they don’t represent Boston. The citizens of Boston deserve better than this bad look.
Do better @RedSox
