I don't live close to Boston (two and a half plus hours) but close enough to pick up their sports channels that feature the Celtics, Red Sox and Bruins. I wanted to watch their morning sports talk show this morning and you could tell the guys were sick of talking about this whole Adam Jones "incident" and wanted to move on. They also said that people in Boston are hyper aware of racial stuff so they are extra sensitive to it and the radio guy said he has to run a big giant filter through his head before he discusses race because people will pounce if he "slips" up in the slightest way. But let us take the worst case scenario. Yes over thirty or more people got kicked out that night for rowdy and or unruly behavior. And let us take Adam Jones at his word and that one maybe two people hurled racial insults. And they got kicked out because that behavior is not acceptable. So why did this turn into a "Boston" is racist media swirl? And keep in mind as I write this there is no proof beyond Adam Jones's accusation that anyone said anything racially insensitive and as each day passes more and more people are wondering if Jones made this up. He does have a history though and that should not be ignored even though at the moment he is being treated as some sort of hero. But as far as Boston yes in the past going way back there was a large swath of racism against blacks. That Boston no longer exists. Even though Mass is a liberal state they have elected Republican Governors like Mitt Romney. In 2006 though a young black Democrat Deval Patrick won in a landslide. In Boston he carried 75% of the Boston vote (mainly white) including hardcore white neighborhoods like South Boston and West Roxbury with a 3 to 1 ratio! Patrick easily won his second term in 2010 once again going over 70% in Boston and over a whopping 80% in Cambridge which is a white suburb of Boston. Harvard is in Cambridge. I set a very high bar on what constitutes white racism and what people think in private has no bearing on me. If they act on "racial" stuff then that is a whole different matter. The point is this. No true white racist would ever vote for a black man especially the highest office in a state. And when you think about it this country elected a black man not once but twice to the highest office in the land yet over the past 8 plus years the racism talk in the media has increased ten fold. A lot of that has to do with the tone Obama and his Attorney General set which only fueled the flames. And it is used as a weapon for political gain. But the real truth can be found in the numbers and Boston is not racist in the least. Case closed.
