Skip to comments.Is Boston racist? Poll shows city is split — along racial lines

Bostonians are fairly evenly divided over whether theirs is a racist town, 42 percent saying yes and 45 percent believing it is not, according to a new Suffolk University/Boston Globe poll. But, perhaps unsurprisingly, views vary dramatically among the races themselves.
Fifty-seven percent of those who identify as black said the city is racist, compared with 37 percent of those who call themselves white. Hispanics fell in the middle, with 44 percent believing their hometown is racist.

I still say there’s hope for LEGAL Hispanics to turn R.
Blacks, not so much.
THOUGH, the real stunner of the election is that only 78 percent of black men voted for hillary.
I know. It’s a YUGE number, but it’s not the 96 percent that black women voted for her
Perception is not reality. Just because some believe the town is racist, does not mean it is so.
It’s a Democrat town.
It’s a liberal town.
It’s not 1976 anymore. Too many black people are living in the past. A quarter of the population are college students.
Why should Blacks move to Wine Country, Sonoma California? They are born Whiners.
Boston Celtics fans hated their own black sports legends back in the 70s and early 80s. Boston has always been exceedingly racist, and still is today.
Yeah! A bunch of racist libs! Who knew! Lol!!!!!
If legal Hispanics vote for Trump in a wide margin, he wins easily. If Trump gets 20% of the black male vote, he wins in 2020.
Is there a city that is NOT split along racial lines?
Lifelong Bostonian here : if you think Boston is racist please leave and never come back. The city has enough fags in it that we need people crying about a basically non existent problem
Some of the ugliest news reports by far from the desegregation and forced busing era came out of Boston. I recall seeing foulmouthed fishwives throwing rocks and debris at passing school buses filled with black children, along with school buses being overturned by mobs, something that put the purportedly racist, SPLC-derided south to shame.
There’s a whole lot of faux moral superiority out of New England. Do as I say, not as I do.
Racism is a fundamental attribute of progressive leftism. Boston is very leftist. Therefore, Boston is very racist.
Q for the BG: Blacks are bugging out of Cook Co, IL. In very large numbers. Are the blacks who are leaving racist?
worked up there for years, and yes I would not say it is racist per se, but more of elitist, and bigoted towards anyone who doe snot fit their liberal view, or where they live.
He did this time!!!! And he won!! With what reputable sources are saying SIX MILLION illegal votes!!!!!
He won pretty easily without a wide margin of Hispanics. He gets 40 percent and I think it’s a blowout now that we have blue collar white guys back.
Plus why hasn’t the R congress passed voter ID reform yet?
Can they do that or is it a state issue?
I am so surprised ... not! Boston is a cesspool of socialism which is mostly white. Only 37% whites think Boston is racist? Perfect example of liberal white guilt.
BTW, is there any better example of liberal biased reporting than the Boston Globe?
Can’t be. Boston is liberal. /S
