Boston police apologize for tweeting Black History Month tribute to Red Auerbach - The Boston Globe

The Boston Police Department apologized early Monday after tweeting a Black History Month tribute post that honored a white man.

The tweet, which was deleted less than an hour after it went up Sunday night, was posted on the department’s official account “in honor of #BlackHistoryMonth.” However, the tweet celebrated the accomplishments of former Boston Celtics coach and president Red Auerbach, who was white.
