Simmons College drops ads over slurs in Boston Police union paper

Simmons College    will reportedly no longer advertise in “Pax Centurion,” after becoming aware of racially charged content in the bimonthly newspaper published by the Boston Police Patrolmen’s Association.

The current edition of the BPD union’s current newsletter includes a diatribe against the ‘Occupy Boston’ protests that refers to Senate Candidate Elzabeth Warren as liberals’ “candidate for squaw I mean senator.” A humor page also includes a crass item about Egyptian men and their wives.
