Skip to comments.Whites still fleeing cities in Mass.

Whites are abandoning Massachusetts cities at a rapid clip, continuing well-worn paths to the suburbs or out of state, according to new demographic data from the US census.
...The migration of whites out of communities has also left many public school districts in cities made up overwhelmingly of minority students. In Lawrence, just 6 percent of this years public school students are white. In Chelsea just 8 percent are, according to state Department of Education figures.
...The trend was strongest in lower-income communities plagued by violent crime and struggling schools. Yet wealthier communities like Beverly, Gloucester, Melrose, and Salem also saw declines, as did wealthy ones like Newton.

I prefer the term “Caucasian American.”
Isn’t MA about to lose a House seat? I’d give the rag credit, but they’re only reporting something that’s become painfully obvious.
I lived in Boston for 20 years. When I moved out, I looked for towns that were at least 98% white. That was my number one priority. In a PC world, I’m not supposed to think like that — but I do, and I make no apologies.
The white liberals in Massachussetts just love black Americans. As long as they get all their chores done and are back in their ghettos by sundown.
Notice how it just never seems to ruin your day to be called “cracker”?
I mean, you’d think it would be more demoralizing to be reminded that you’re a member of the most successful people group to ever populate this planet,
but it doesn’t.
I think all white liberals think the same way. Great synopsis!
Perhaps you’re “racist”...
or perhaps you just have common sense based on statistical analysis and experience.
Yes, and too bad it’s only 1 seat.
Why should you have to make an apology for wanting to live where you want to live? Anyone who thinks you shouldn’t is a f**ktard.
Sounds good to me!
Massachusetts is a microcosm of what is wrong with democrat run states for decades.
Socialism prevails. Unions run amuck.
Ergo taxes are high as are regulations and other anti business measures.
These are the symptoms that are killing other states too such as California, Illinois, New York and Michigan.
They’ll need to jack up the taxes on the remnant to keep that budget balanced...
I check crime rates before moving in. Same net effect, but it isn’t racist...
That'll teach 'em.
...individuals not covered under Affrimative Action...
...individuals not considered “my people”...
Barry is a Caucasian American..... at least 50% so via Kansas. Take a look at Eric Holder, Valerie Jarette, Lisa Jackson at EPA. All these black racists have a lot of Caucasian American in them yet they carry on as if they are 100% black. Just saying......As a bonus Valerie Jarette looks part Chinese and part space alien. What these maggots do is take their inner self-hatred and conflicts and try to punish the American people for them. Same as Janet Napolitano who takes her dried up lesbian pathologies and self-hatred and inflicts them on the American people. I thought the Bill Clinton régime was bad but Obama has them beat any day as far as angry freakazoids, misfits, homos, racists, baby killers working for him
Gee, I wonder why they'd leave?
I can’t stand cities and I’ve always preferred rural life. I think I can count the number of ‘minorities’ in our town on one hand (and I get along with them just fine, thank you).
Demographics do correlate to crime rates,
that’s something that holds more true than not.
The glob is reporting to whip up racist fever.
I don’t believe that Laurence is 6% white....I have not seen a white person in 10 years traveling through Laurence.
By golly, you're right!
I'm sure they get all the benefits of being "in the minority"
How about “European-American”.or “Western European-American”
” Descendant of Indentured Servant American” or
“Descendent of Honest Hard Americans who were too embarrased to go on the Dole American”might be too long
I’m English-American, French-American, Dutch-American and German-American; all of which are minorities. For a person who is a combination of Inuit-American, African-American and Hispanic-American - they’d be only a triple-minority.
Jefferson felt the same way:
“I view great cities as pestilential to the morals, the health, and the liberties of man.”
E. Pluribus Unum ~ By golly, you're right!
And you owe all of China an apology...
Anglo Saxon Americans would be the white version of African Americans ???
-——Valerie Jarette looks part Chinese and part space alien-———
She reminds me of the description given by Robert Heinlein in several of his future history books of the common people who by then have no discernible racial characteristics. The racial mix over so many generations has erased traditional racial characteristics.
This lays it out pretty perfectly:
It really is culture and not race.
A lot of these [the Bamster's] people did work for Bill Clinton.
As do I...but I think it ought to be "Caucasian - American"!!!
And if one wishes to parse it completely, one could refer to one's self as, say, "English-American", or "French-American", or "German-American", or "Italian-American", or "Portuguese-American", or "Vatican Cityite - American", or "Greek-American"...or such like.
“I cant stand cities and Ive always preferred rural life.”
The problem is that many if not most want the same rules for their rural neighbors that they had in the city. I prefer that we quarantine them and prevent the spread of liberalism.
??? Good question?
“Race” is a pretty recent construct, based on evolutionary/Darwinist assumptions.
It is true that the people groups tend to look alike, but that is more because they adapted to their locales, not because they are “more evolved” or “closer to gorillas” (as Darwin stated).
And, of course, these groups all developed their common cultures as well,
so there is a correlation between a people’s phenotype and their culture,
but it isn’t a “causation”.
Just because you have a certain skin color or eye shape does not predetermine your culture.
“I prefer the term Caucasian American.”
I’ve always liked “Caucasoid.”
This will require high speed Bullet School Busses to bus the whites in to the bad schools and minorities out to the good schools.
One more hot tip.
Buy a cop a cuppa, and talk to him/her about neighborhood crime rates.
They WILL NOT tell you that an area is a high crime rate area, so frame the question differently, bring a map, tell them you are considering moving to their berg and are looking for a good neighborhood to raise kids. Point to one of the areas you've prescreened and ask them to tell you about that neighborhood, follow up by asking where they, themselves would move.
You'll end up in the neighborhood with the best balance of lower costs and low crime rates good schools and services (and you'll have a bunch of police/fire neighbors)...
I'm white and I travel THROUGH Lawrence as quickly as possible. ;-)
Let’s have all of the Leftist employees at the Glob move into those neighborhoods that Whitey is moving out of.
I've seen the future.
Section 8, coming to your neighborhood.
That'll teach 'em.
My next move is going to be rural, and we homeschool,
so thanks for the tip, I’m sure others can use it.
I didn’t realize that the Mass DIM/LIBs were such racist pigs. Shouldn’t they be co-mingling their communities with socio-economic and racial diversity leading to frequent kumbaya moments, smiling and love?
In MY neighborhood, I’m called “The TOKEN American”. It is convenient, my home town, and I plan to stay as long as I do NOT hear any of the following...
1. Loud, ANGRY voices in a foreign language.
2. Frequent police sirens. (Not for months now)
3. Gun shots at any time.
The majority of people do not relocate out of prejudice. A strong motivation is JUSTIFIED fear for family safety. People just speak of WHITE flight...how about statistics of the numbers of MINORITIES who, having the economic ability, join the flight from hell-hole cities. That would also be fascinating. Any story in the Globe is going to find a way to criticize WHITES.

The problem is that with our nation’s current immigration policies, that’s getting harder and harder to do. Our current legal (and illegal) immigration policies are so weak and so oblivious to future consequences that we’re pretty much importing our own destruction. When you allow the equivalent of the Nashville metro area to (legally) immigrate into your country annually, the vast majority of which do not speak your language, have no education, come from crime-infested nations, and who share only minimal cultural ties, you’re going to have massive problems and massive balkanization.
You’re also going to see a massive drop-off in the performance of your public education scores. There’s a reason states like Idaho, Montanta, Iowa, Wisconsin, Minnesota, and New Hampshire have our nations top test scores. That said, those states are becoming increasingly diverse, as well. Massachusetts has been amongst that group of school systems that did well in the past, as well. I’d be curious to see what happens when you see the following:
“In Massachusetts, the number of Asians and Hispanics rose 46 percent, and the black population climbed 26 percent.”
By looking at history, you’d absolutely expect school performance to rather sharply decline.
I myself moved to a predominantly white school district after our daughter was fondled by a group of minority students, our son was attacked by that same group when he tried to defend her, and was subsequently suspended from school. We’ve moved to a 99% white district. No problems. And the test scores are astronomically better here.
How long does that last? *shrugs* By the way this nation is going, not long.
