    Boston is racist but not anymore racist than any other major city in the US. We get a bad rap because the city made national news for the busing programs in the late 60s and 70s. A lot of overt racism then. There is still discrimination now but it’s more subtle. There is also a much larger population in and around Boston that won’t hesitate to stand up to overt racism. The systemic issues are still a problem but I think awareness and policy changes will hopefully make a difference down the road.

    I went to college near Boston and ran away as soon as I could. So racist!
    PS – I’m white. I saw some scary racist stuff. And I heard people stick their noses in the air and deny it. Bye, Boston!

    I’ll admit, I was embarrassingly clueless about the pervasiveness of racism for most of my life. It took me asking people I knew about their experiences and having them share their stories for me to learn how bad things are everywhere….It was a really life changing day. I find myself angry, embarrassed and ashamed for how racist this country still is and how insidious it is throughout our society.

    People up north like to pretend that it’s only people in the south who are racist. Denial is strong.

    Go to Roxbury at midnight and do a “piece” and see how you are treated. Come to Chicago and find the blackest neighborhood that you can and see if you would do a “piece” and still go to breakfast the next day.

    I grew up in Brockton and went to college at Northeastern. I knew there were racial divide and discrimination but never understood the real extent of it.
    It is disheartening my alma mater doesn’t have a black population greater than 5%.

    And this is why we have Resistance against critical race theory in our schools because most whites don’t see or know what racism is they are either oblivious or racist themselves

    Being British I’m pleased none of this applys to me.
    Also the original segment link does not work here.
    BTW, that was a joke. I live in London and it can be very problematic.

    It’s not about hating black people it’s about hating poor people just like every other city in America.

    i’ve always wondered if the N word is so offensive why is that it’s every other word in hip hop and every day speech between black people? isn’t that a diminishing way to speak about yourself and basically showing the rest of the world that it’s kinda fine to speak like that?
