The most racist people I’ve met are all New England leftists.

A quick story...I lived for 20 years in an upper middle class suburb of Boston.Some would even call it wealthy (but I'm not wealthy for sure).It's also *very* "progressive",if ya catch my drift.A few years before I moved out someone proposed building some "affordable housing" in one of the nicer parts of town.Well,as I'm sure you expected...the neighbors went ballistic."It's too dangerous"."Think about the environment"."The traffic would be terrible,kids would be hit and killed".Stuff like that.Of course that wasn't the *real* reason.

Also...same subject...google "Commonwealth Day School" and pay particular attention to the hits you get from The Harvard Crimson (yah,*that* Harvard).You'll see a tale about the racism of the best and the brightest of Harvard University.It even involves (in a bad way) Julia Child and Laurence Tribe.Priceless!

My first boss out of college was a graduate of Amherst. I remember how impressed I was that he spent his vacation that summer as a Freedom Rider in Mississippi (it was 1963).

When he returned, to his dismay, he discovered that his landlord had rented the apartment next door to a black man. He was absolutely livid -- "I'm not gonna live next door to a GD nigger!"

So, he moved out.

It was my first lesson about liberals.

IIRC, Boston was a bastion of parental decorum when courts mandated school bussing was ordered.
