some responses to the letter on Globe site:

>>Why wouldn’t it be? Massachusetts is 83% white.

<<The solution would be for people of color to just show up. It’s free, it’s easy to get to, and one doesn’t need an invitation. No one or nothing is stopping them from being there.

—Mary Lou,

Surely, you jest.

How you feel that counting ‘white faces’ on a television broadcast (at best an exercise in subjective bean counting) allows you to make some sort of generalization about the inclusiveness of our society, or the nature of the crowd, eludes me. Are you aware cameras are set up to get the best shots of any given event and not for a shallow survey the visually apparent racial makeup of those who attend?
At the very least, you should be reminded that Martin Luther King hoped his children would “…not be judged by the color of their skin, but by the content of their character”, and counting ‘white’ (or any color) noses in a crowd is in conflict with his very fine ideal.

Liberals hate Math, even the very simple one. There is a reason why the vast majority of liberal has some type of arts and humanities degrees.

Are they Negroids or Negros?

No, that’s politically incorrect.

Are they Mongoloids or Mongols?

No, that’s politically incorrect.

Are they Causoids or Caucasions?

....yes.

I guess not all racism is equal.

I suggest we pass around a hat to raise enough money for a one-way ticket to Zimbabwe for Ms Mary Lou Eshelman

Its one thing for an idiot like Mary Lou Eshelman to write this crap, but its another for the Boston Globe to publish it!

I searched in vain for more than a few faces in the crowd that weren’t Caucasian

You are an idiot.

I just deleted the whole rest of my post. I am seriously thinking of just staying off the Internet for anything but email.

The idiots are everywhere.

First, Massachusetts is only 5% black.

"I was embarrassed for our city of Boston, which is trying hard to project an image of inclusion and to leave behind the racism of the past."

Is it really? Most Bostonians are Democrat types, the same type people who just lionized Klan leader Robert Byrd. There is nothing "inclusive" about Democrats.

They could have pushed the Philly ‘celebration’ and see loads of blacks... Forming a flash mob and beating an Asian guy

I’m all for enlightening America to the true face of the liberal left

Obviously Eric Holder’s Department Of Racial Insanity needs to investigate, then arrest all of Boston for Felony Celebrating While Caucasian.

Mary Lou Eshelman Newton

Newton, also known as Snewton. Heavily Jewish of the most Mao loving, Israel hating, America hating but living on the academic/finance/social service teat lefties you'd ever meet who couldn't fix a tire or hang a picture if their lives depend upon it but will tell you how to run the world. No one listens to them, except people in Brookline and Cambridge.

Liberals are SOOO obsessed with race. I’m a “person of color” (I hate that term!), and when I see people enjoying a 4th of July celebration, I see my fellow Americans. I don’t sit there and count how many non-white faces I see. It doesn’t even cross my mind to check.

Being a liberal must be a miserable existence!

“Earth to Mary Lou: Mass. is 83 per cent white..”

Public education has brainwashed blacks into believing that they are victims of this country not celebrants. It’s hardly surprising that they don’t show up to July 4th celebrations.

Not to forget to mention, like baseball, blacks don’t attend band concerts. Maybe if Jay Z, Beyonce or Kanye West came up with a pro America rap song?

Just for everybody's info...I did a little searching and found that Mary Lou lives in Newton (a *very* rich,*very* white and *very* left wing suburb of Boston) in a house assessed at about $870K...which means that it could bring $900K easily.Also,my search suggests that she's some kind of social worker but I'm not sure.

Knowing Newton as well as I do my guess is that she's not living among many "people of color" and that she's not living the simple life you'd expect a "progressive" like her to lead.
