Fenway’s Historic Yawkey Way Has Officially Been Changed To Jersey Street Because Of Stupid Social Justice Warriors

For those not familiar with Fenway Park, Yawkey Way is a short street right outside of the park that has the main entrances to Fenway. On gamedays, it’s packed with drunk fans making their way into the game and the atmosphere is unparalleled

It’s named after Tom Yawkey, who was the owner of the Red Sox from 1933 to 1976. A rich businessman, Yawkey was also extremely charitable and donated massive amounts of money to the city of Boston and many of its area hospitals, so it makes sense why he was honored with this street

But like all things in this world, sensitive idiots felt the need to get offended by things from the past and demanded the name be changed back to Jersey Street. Why? Because it turns out Tom Yawkey was a bit racist

Wait, you’re telling me a rich white guy from Boston, who was born in 1903, didn’t exactly have progressive views? Groundbreaking stuff right there

Newsflash dipshits: Everybody was racist in Boston back then. Shit, a lot of people still are. I’m not saying it’s right, I’m just saying that’s the truth, and sanitizing the past makes zero sense to me

Boston is a much more liberal and progressive place these days, but you might wanna touch up on Boston’s racial history if you’re shocked by the news that some guy from 100 years ago was racist

During the Bussing Riots, it was like a race war in school everyday. There were riot cops stationed at Southie High, and the school averaged about 10 brawls a day. This was in the late 70’s, so I can only imagine what race relations were like in Yawkey’s time. Hell, back then even Irish and Italians were treated like shit in Boston back then, so I’m sure black people weren’t exactly treated like royalty

What all of these social justice warriors don’t understand about all of their dumb protests is that you can’t change history. It already happened, and ripping things down and changing names just because you don’t like them isn’t the answer

“Those who don’t learn from history are doomed to repeat it”, and it’s important to remember that different eras had different attitudes on social issues than we do today. Was Tom Yawkey kind of a racist dick? Yeah, he was. Was he also a very charitable man who donated a shitload of money to the infrastructure of Boston, including many area hospitals that have saved thousands, by now maybe even millions, of lives (including plenty of non-white lives)? Also yes

Mass General Hospital has an entire building named after him that he donated. Should that be shut down too? While we’re at it, let’s close Disney World too since Walt Disney was a Nazi sympathizer. We’d better also change the name of the state of Washington, since George Washington owned slaves. Any rational person sees the flaws in all of these “let’s rewrite history” nonsense, but unfortunately, the vocal minority seems to always get their way lately.

If you haven’t already figured it out, I fucking hate social justice warriors. The “I’m offended by this, I’m offended by that” crowd will be the downfall of society, and their actions are eerily similar to the Thought Police described in George Orwell’s 1984

The SJW’s think they won, but every Bostonian is still gonna call it Yawkey Way. The Jersey Street sign is gonna get ripped down every single night, so that’s just gonna be more taxpayer money that gets wasted on replacing it constantly and having police patrol the area harder. Good job guys

Just once, ONCE, I want somebody in a position of power to tell these protesters to go fuck themselves instead of caving into their demands. I was really hoping the Red Sox would have more of a spine on this issue, but I guess not

RIP Yawkey Way: You can change a street’s name, but you can’t change an idea. Me and every other Red Sox fan will continue to call it Yawkey Way until we die, and I could give 2 shits if some pink-haired, fat feminist bitch gets offended by it
