To be an agent of change, one must first acknowledge that there is a situation in need of change.
NASCAR, as well as the Boston Red Sox, did just that last week and the message they sent throughout the sports landscape was resounding.
On Wednesday, NASCAR announced they were banning the Confederate flag from all events and properties.
That same day, the Red Sox released a statement acknowledging racist behavior from its fans at Fenway Park in response to comments from former All-Star Torii Hunter that detailed his history of racial abuse when he played away games in Boston.
