The dumpster fire known as the Boston Globe is doing a story on something really, really, really original – racism in Boston:

Ya know, because Adam Jones lied about someone calling him a racial slur, some Southie white trash threw rocks at buses with black kids on them in 1974, and the Red Sox were the last team to integrate. Never heard any of that stuff before. Groundbreaking.

I refuse to read it, not because I’m against reading opinions that differ from mine, but rather because there’s just no way in hell I’d ever pay a cent to get past the Globe pay wall. And no I’m deleting my cookies and losing passwords so I can read some predictable bullshit written by a bunch of underpaid white guilt ravaged loons with journalism degrees.

Spoiler alert – here’s the gist of it:

  • Hand picked African-American people the Globe interviewed share unconfirmed anecdotes about what some racist noob said to them one time
  • The neighborhoods are divided along racial lines
  • Boston kids use the METCO program to leave racist inner city schools that don’t provide them with a quality education that mostly white schools get. In other words, black kids don’t wanna be around other black kids, so they go to Lincoln-Sudbury and Newton North. This is racist on the part of white people somehow
  • Most elected officials are white, including the mayor who just defeated a black guy. But progressive US Senator Elizabeth Warren, who claims to believe that black lives matter, endorsed the white incumbent.

  • Henry Louis Gates was arrested at his own house (not in Boston) after someone called the cops on him when his driver broke through a window and he told the responding officer that he fucked his mother
  • A Medford charter school didn’t let black girls wear braids, even though Medford is not Boston
  • ESPN social justice warriors all say Boston is a racist city, largely because they wanted All-Star free agent forward Gordon Hayward to sign here because he’s in the prime of his career and he used to play for Brad Stevens.
  • Michael Che thinks Boston is a racist city because he claims someone looked at him funny in a bar
  • A Globe reporter lied about a racial incident at Fenway Park that happened right in front of him the day after the Adam Jones incident, but yet no one got the racist’s name
  • A guy followed a black guy around a store one time
  • A woman suffered the indignity of a microaggression

Meanwhile this is the Boston Globe’s newsroom leadership staff:

You’ll notice that 11 out of 11 are white. Ya got that? The group investigating whether or not Boston is a racist city, represents a brand that doesn’t hire black people.

As usual it’s just a bunch of suburban white people, with a bad case of white guilt, desperately trying to prove that they’re one of the “good ones” by having a “conversation” about race that never seems to go anywhere.

And their lower level employees aren’t much different:

Boston isn’t a racist city, but the people who run the Boston Globe just might be.

This is just such a stupid and disingenuous conversation to have. There are racist people in Boston, just as there are any other America city. No data suggests that Boston has more racists per capita than any other city. Absent that data it’s impossible to have any sort of legitimate investigation into whether Boston is a “racist city.”

Instead their entire story will revolve around anecdotes, which prove absolutely nothing. Most will be unproven (like Adam Jones), others will be misconstrued (like Skip Gates), and readers will be told that they have to believe these stories, and if they don’t then they are racist. That’s just how it goes these days.

There isn’t a city in America whose neighborhoods aren’t segregated by race. That’s not to say that white people don’t live in Roxbury and black people don’t live in Charlestown. Of course they do. But people live where they can afford to live. And on average white people make more money than black people, which is why you see more white people in higher rent parts of town. This isn’t brain surgery, and it happens in every major American city. This is not a news story.

Here’s another thing – how come no one ever says that Los Angeles is the most racist city? They had Rodney King and actual race riots. Or Detroit? They’ve had a number of race riots. Or Philadelphia? A few black guys there have been shot by cops. Or Baltimore? Freddie Grey ring a bell? Or New York? Eric Garner was killed in New York. Or Dallas? A couple high school kids exchanged racist messages in September in Dallas.

See? We can find anecdotes too. It’s not hard. But ultimately it proves nothing. And it’s just lazy, lazy, lazy journalism. The worst part is that it’s a 7 part story. They’re investing all this time and resources into a tired cliche that will ironically only divide people along racial lines more than they are already, and the Globe will sit back, make money off clicks, and watch the world burn.

We’ll pay for your one-way tickets and a month’s worth of FOOD (not fake nails or Air Jordans or other shit) — as long as you take the spics with you. All of them. We’ll save three times the amount of financial problems you all cause, all the neighborhoods will be clean and safe for kids, school grades and attendance will reach new levels, and property value will skyrocket. Plus, the national debt will disappear quickly.

    You can’t blame the METCO kids for wanting to leave the city to utilize other schools in wealthier towns. They know better and want better for themselves. It doesn’t say much about their own environment or their city officials, superintendents, etc….

      Irrelevant how many minorities are employed at TBS. They are not painting a entire city as racists with a false narrative. How do I know it’s a false narrative before it is published? Their track record of supporting the modern day KKK aka Democrats with the modern day plantation aka The Great Society tells me so. Want to learn? Prolly not but try defending this. Goggle LBJ and The Great Society and see why they invented the stuff that keeps blacks voting for them. You will learn why Clive at the T&G is the best slave ever. He fights and defends his master and doesn’t even know it.

    As one of the “Real Journalists” I can say that I would never work for the Boston Globe or the New York times or any other liberal rag.Full disclosure I did work for the Turtle Gram and Gazette for a hot minute back in the early 2000s when I was still innocent enough to believe all news formats just wanted to bring people the Truth the who,what,when,where,why and how from all sides in equal measure and then allow the readers to decide what to think.
    I lost my rose colored glasses Very quickly! It isn’t News if editors cut out information to bias a story, but far worse are Journalists interjecting their own thoughts or leaving relevant information out.

If you see a lot of Brazilians owning and working for cleaning companies that’s because that what they wanted to do and qualified for. So stop the nonsense!!

    Perhaps the Globe would create a Chief Diversity Officer position and extend an offer of employment to Didi Delgado? Hours are M-F 8am to 4:30pm. Job is hiring anyone who isn’t white, pushing POC empowerment stories, and community liason against inequity. It’d be a win-win for everybody! Didi can go legit, Globe can put their money where their mouth is, cover their ass, parade their new pony with pride hell maybe even increase readership in the hood! C’mon Globe, at least call the bluff. Great PR with no risk she’d ever show up…By some miracle she actually did, you can lay her off after this racism-fad blows over, and Didi can collect free unemployment money at home, legal-like. Again, a win-win for all.

      December 9, 2017 at 5:37 pm

      I agree with you %1000!
      I went to Boston public schools during desegregation in the 70s. I was bused to a school across the city even though there was a school 5 blocks from my house. There were three white kids on the bus including myself. No one can ever convince me that only white people can be racist. I learned on the first day of 4th grade in Boston just how racist and hate filled other races can be toward whites. I didn’t eat lunch for weeks because my lunch money was forcefully taken from my pockets every morning on that fucking bus. I started carrying a knife and sat in the last seat with my back to the wall. I learned quickly and at a young age to defend myself. I never told my parents or teachers about the daily attacks nor did I cry or demand a safe space. I manned up, got strong and didn’t take shit from anyone. In case you are wondering…..it was not the other two white kids on the bus that jumped me daily. I was bused to Mattapan….draw your own conclusions on what color my attackers were.

I remember in college, I always got shit getting carded at an Irish bar bc I have an Italian name- half the time I thought the guys were playfully making fun of me, but the other half felt like “we don’t want your kind here”… there was just a lot of that going around at that time.

      I think what you’re describing is more a class structure, which is big societal problem. People are very quick to make it a race thing, but that’s only a teeny piece of the big puzzle. That’s why the “white privilege” BS makes me nuts. It is a distraction from what the real issues are in terms of class by design and who exploits the divides. You look at a Didi Delgado and all she is is a Pat Robertson-style scam artist. Articles like this Globe one exacerbate the confusion and aid in misguided thinking.

      I wish TBS would hire a writer to draw the lines between why these ratchets and corrupt individuals they profile exist in society.

      Google the name Richard Poleet.
      Read what happened to him and then tell me only whites are racist in Boston.
