FORMER RED SOX EMPLOYEE FILES COMPLAINT CLAIMING RACIAL BIAS
Published December 16, 1997
The Red Sox have been accused by a former employee of "fostering a racial climate hostile to black employees," according to Adrian Walker of the BOSTON GLOBE. Thomas Sneed, an African-American former employee of the team, "says the team failed to fully investigate several racially- based incidents in which he was targeted, and even asked him to keep quiet about them." Sneed, who worked for the team for seven years, said that on two separate occasions pictures in his office of his white fiancee were "defaced," once with a "racial epithet," and he says he "interpreted the message as a clear threat of physical violence." In a statement, the Red Sox "acknowledged that Sneed had reported the incidents," but "denied that the club had not tried to stop them" (Adrian Walker, BOSTON GLOBE, 12/16).
