    The funny thing is we often talk about the South and the codified racism of Jim Crow. But somehow the racism of the North rarely gets discussed. Many of the big northern cities are very segregated by race. Chicago being the biggest example.

    The interesting thing too about self segregation of living is the discussion of gentrification going on. Gentrification is about money not race but because gentrification occurs in largely poorer minority dominated areas it is often made about race.

    Oakland, CA may be the most diverse city in the country on paper. About 25% white/black/Hispanic/Asian. But when I moved there in ‘81 it was almost 50% black. A lot of black folks have complained about gentrification of the city and the losing of black culture.

    If the goal is to have a diverse city we have it. But should communities of color be able to stay together and not have development that improves the area which increases rents and property values and brings in different people to live there?

    I think Milwaukee is considered the most segregated city.

    why is Boston soooo racist?

    That is easy. Liberal Democrats. This is the area of those like Elizabeth Warren, Kerry, the Kennedys. What did you expect?
    Consider the Oyster.

    C-4 is just angry playdoh.

    Duh. Republicans need all the Uncle Toms they can get.

    Posted by Centerleftfl

    LOLOL!! Apparently they can get DAMN FEW!!

    There is a true Uncle Tom among the 'few dark hued' that the GOP 'invited to thei Party'. I'll state it OUTRIGHT, if there is a 21st century Uncle Tom, it's him.


    Not one Democrat or Liberal on this board condemned those blatantly racist by fellow Democrats. Why am I not surprised?

    Your party has a long history of racism going back to slavery. You yourself spit in the face of a black man just because you assumed he was dealing drugs because of his skin color. Thankfully you didn't have a gun or he might be dead for walking while black.

    Just sayin. Leopards can't change their spots
