To the contrary, Massachusetts lowest incarceration rates for Black Americans in country beside for Hawaii, according to The Sentencing Projects.

  • I think the big problem is that people are still expecting racism to be always look like n-words and white hoods, and that's just not how it is. We know racism is bad, so racist people can't admit their own racism to themselves without risking social stigma, and if they can't admit it they can't change. At least that's my impression.

  • i could walk down every single part of boston and greater boston with no problems due to my race. that is absolutely not the same in L.A. or Chicago, or New York. the bruins were the first nhl team to integrate. also mark wahlberg has multiple convictions of assaulting blacks and asians (which normally wouldn't matter, except it was stated explicitly that race was a catalyst). so you win some you lose some.

  • Most Bostonians think of themselves as non-racist, but they are happy to live in a segregated city. It's like those global warming loving progressive who drive around in big SUVs that average 25 mpg on the highway or less. It doesn't get more hypocritical.

  • I know there is Racism. There is the same Racism anywhere anyone goes where you don’t know anyone. You will be looked at and judged if you go anywhere you are not alike. I went over the Chinatown line in Boston when I was younger. My friend and I walked into a arcade and obviously it was a ton of Chinese kids and they stopped what they were doing and stared at us. Basically if we didn’t get the hint to leave there would have been trouble.

  • The black people they interviewed clearly gave a , it’s not perfect but it’s not horrible answer. Plus everyone was happy and helped shape the narrative with a smile. All the while it was made to be funny. What I gathered was it was a prodominally white place. I didn’t see any hate. Maybe a lot of those white people might not understand really what it’s like to be black there or they didn’t see a problem but then again neither did the black people. Everyone was just chillin
