This is literally all Worcester City Manager Ed Augustus gets paid to do:

Oh look, another rally against non-existent, fabricated racism designed to make Joyce McNickles and Keesha LaTulippe more money. It’s literally the ONLY thing they are capable of doing. Oh yea, and the meetings were top secret this morning, behind closed doors:
“In a three-part kickoff, the YWCA of Central Massachusetts first hosted a closed morning seminar with local dignitaries and officials on issues of racism and structural racism. Advocates focused their talks on the impact of racism on young girls and women of color, although the discussion touched on several issues facing the city, according to Joyce D. McNickles, a sociology, social justice and multicultural educator, who was present at that event.”
Awesome transparency. Ed Augustus meeting with Joyce and crew where no one could report on it. AKA – time to discuss what the next bogus non-profit will be now that Mosaic’s been assassinated by Turtleboy.
“In the afternoon, the YWCA hosted a dialogue among about 30 people. Participants, largely Worcester residents, sat around small tables and shared their experiences with racism.”
This is literally all they do. We had the Goddamn Department of Justice come to Worcester for two months straight to hold these stupid, meaningless pow wows where everyone got to share their undocumented anecdotes about racism. Doesn’t matter if the stories are true because people like Joyce McNickles want to believe it’s true. After all, without racism, she can’t make money off training seminars like this.
Discussion hot points in the afternoon talk included “intersectionality” — a concept defined by The New York Times as the way people who occupy multiple oppressed identities can be understood only in terms of their sum, rather than as a set of independent experiences.
Translation – whoever can come up with the most reasons they are oppressed wins a cookie. Because making yourself a victim is so hot with the SJW brigade these days.
Gentrification was another hot point discussed. Providence Street resident Scott Dowling said he perceives gentrification taking place around Green and Water streets. He said services are needed for that neighborhood to address violence and substance abuse, not upscale shops run by “super-fancy small businesses.”
“We don’t need more restaurants where a sandwich costs $25,” Mr. Dowling said. Canal District residents “don’t need bike lanes. … What will make these people feel loved and safe? If safety is gentrification, let’s have that.”
See this guy?
He’s a HUGE part of the problem. The canal district is one of the most important parts of Worcester’s economy. There are an abundance of nice restaurants and bars, including the Crompton Collective which hosts weddings and Bill Clinton rallies. And yes, some of them cost a little bit more money, because raising prices is how you help create a nice atmosphere. These are good things, not bad.
And what’s his problem with bike lanes? Does he want bikers to get hit by cars? Is people’s safety too gentrified for Scott Dowling? Does he think we need more 7/11’s, liquor stores, and Worcester Bling-Bling?
Hey moron, all those “super fancy” businesses like The Banner, Smokestack Urban Barbecue, Union Tavern, and the Perfect Game, aren’t financed by the city government. To the contrary, they PAY taxes to the city and revitalized a previously rundown neighborhood.
So you have absolutely no clue what you’re talking about when you frame it as if the city is giving it’s limited resources to these businesses instead of “addressing violence and substance abuse” on Providence Street. And for the record, we spend a shit ton of money already addressing both of those things. Ya know, because we have police and paramedics that spend more time in that part of the city, despite the fact that residents contribute significantly less in taxes.
But wait, it gets better:
Mr. Dowling, who works in City Hall, said afterward that he was speaking only for himself and not city government.
Wait….what?? This guy works in City Hall and he’s actively opposing economic development in Worcester?
Ya know who’s on the taxpayer’s dime? It’s not the Lucky Dog, it’s Scott Dowling. Want more money for city services? Quit your job.
YWCA Director of Children Services Darlene Belliveau shared in the talks that she sees discrimination against children in the system as young as 2.
No she doesn’t. She’s literally making that up. Of course we can’t prove that anymore than she can prove it did happen. But everyone there nodded their head and said, “that’s not right.” Therefore it happened.
Jessica Morris, an assistant dean of residential living and learning at MCPHS University, said as a white woman, she hears racism more than others because she’s around white people who feel they can confide in her because of their shared skin color. She said she was shocked to once hear a white woman in the city say she didn’t enjoy the free wagon tours offered in the Canal District because there were “too many black people” on the rides.
Turtleboy hangs around a lot of white people too. Literally never heard anything remotely close to this. Seems like a pretty bold and outrageous thing for someone to say in 2016, especially in front of a white social justice warrior who is trying hard to be the good white lady that Sandra Bullock played in The Blind Side. But yea, I’m sure that’s exactly what happened. Definitely.
The discussion was also attended by Maritza Cruz, who is taking on a new position at the YWCA as director for racial and gender equity. Ms. Cruz started the job in mid-April and said she looks forward to working with a YWCA task force to address Friday’s topics.
Maritza Cruz was one of the “community activists” who organized a press conference last year to oppose police in North High School after four VP’s were punched in the face by students. Now she’s been appointed the director of “racial and gender equity,” another taxpayer funded job that no one asked for. Because these idiots have no skills so this is the type of job they depend on for employment.
Anyway, here’s Fast Eddie in another photo op showing how progressive he is:
He would NEVER miss an event like this. Ever. But yet whenever it snows there’s a million car accidents because he can’t get the roads plowed. Because this is the kind of City Manager you get when you hire a politician instead of a manager.
P.S. Is RBG dead? Did we destroy his soul? He used to never miss events like this. Seems like he’s dropped off the face of the earth?
Double P.S. Where was WANDA? Events like this were the only thing keeping her alive. Maybe she was feeding them Asian chicks in the basement.
