    I am from Boston. Less than 10% of the city is Asian I would say.

    They have a Chinese section, but it's relatively small. I would say Icespeed is probably correct. I visited Boston a couple of months ago.

    So, Boston is white friendly? I wanted to hear Chinese with Boston accents.

    Bear Arms; I wouldn't say Boston is exactly white-friendly. After all, it is home to Harvard, the worst bastion of politically correct, liberal/socialist/communist, anti-Christian thought in the United States. Anything with those attributes today has to be anti-white. I know I didn't feel befriended when I walked through the Harvard yard back in May. Of course, that is just a small part of Cambridge. Boston itself, from what I saw, is not that bad. People all look like their ticked off about something though. I doubt you'll find any Chinese talking like Ted Kennedy. [​IMG]

    The Greater Boston Area has, to this day, many race
    conflicts between the Irish and Black communities. It is very
    liberal in politics, but it can be very conservative in practice.
    Gays get elected, but no one wants to be near them. The city is
    heavily Catholic, but the Church is constantly criticized, taunted, and
    even hated after all the bugger priests.

    The Church still only plays a major role in Boston
    society because their schools are pretty good and they offer an
    alternative to public schools. Catholic schools became the norm
    for white Bostonians after bussing. There is a lot of racial
    issues when a top football school like Xaverian Brothers play a
    predominantly black-school. The Boston public schools are at least 85%
    black. The old Brahmin-English people sort of sit in the
    wealthy areas if they are well to do.

    Unlike New York, Boston as an actual city is very
    tiny(600,000 people), but controls a lot of other neighboring cities
    and sub-urbs forming the Greater Boston Area. This area is
    heavily white. However, Boston proper is largely black.

    I have heard a few Chinese with Boston accents, but
    it is a different accent than Kennedy's accent. Kennedy's(despite
    being Irish) accent is the old Brahmin accent with some New York words
    thrown in. The more common accent is the south Boston accent,
    which originated as an Irish grove blended in with a Brahmin(Kennedy
    accent) I think. Peter Griffin, on a show Family Guy, has a south
    Boston accent.

    Boston Proper's crime is due to its working class
    nature(don't be fooled by the colleges). Many Irish and Blacks
    are fairly poor. Their gangs fight each other. A lot
    of the crime against whites is commited by blacks, but their is tons of
    black on black and white on white crime. The most feared gang in
    the world 10 years ago, could have been the Irish Winter Hill
    Gang. They commited crimes against whites and blacks. It is
    widely believed that this network of street gangs was basically running
    MA. because the head of the Gang(Whitey Bulger) was the president of
    UMASS's brother.

    This gang was responsible for most of Boston's crime(at least the reported crime).

    Greater Boston is the whitest metropolitan area in
    the US I think. This is why it appeals to college kids and is the
    number one destination for young people I think.

    Probably the most notorious gangster of recent vintage in Boston was executed today. No doubt in my mind he was hit, who ordered the hit may never be known, but James "Whitey" Bulger was killed similar to the murder of various aging former criminal bad asses in jail or the death of Julius Cesar.........

    Maybe some high level corruption involved with the hit being coordinated with his transfer.

    Hock, you are 100% correct. Prison officials are crooked as they come. You don't get transferred 3 times in a year for no reason. They were putting him into position to be killed. Pushed out of sight in a federal facility, no freaking way. Bought and paid for by the federal government.
