A black Boston firefighter who says he was denied entrance to Fenway Park to make a safety inspection during the 2013 World Series along with his black co-worker, while their white colleague was allowed to enter the park, has filed a lawsuit against the Red Sox, according to court records.

The civil complaint was filed by Robert C. Cox, 50, of Walpole, on Wednesday in Suffolk Superior Court for unspecified damages.

The Red Sox, whose principal owner, John Henry also owns The Boston Globe, did not immediately comment on the lawsuit Friday night. Cox could not be reached for comment.

The act of racism itself is wrong, but what's even more at issue is the media finds it's necessary to exploit that racism to get people to read their rag. There should be no suit. No one is entitled to anything because of the color of their skin and that means NO ONE! There will always be racism in this World, White against Black, Black Against White, Asian against Mexican, well you get the picture.

When we stop using our skin color to impose our will upon others then racism will end and not until then. Didn't someone once say turn the other cheek.
