    Re: Dirt Bikes Seized by Boston Police

    So I think we've covered nearly all phases at this point; first we try and reinvent the word, then the definition is cherry picked, then it was 'I'm not racist you are,' then ivory towers, then 'but Degsy did it too,' and now we've reached 'well everything is considered racist nowadays.'

    Its really a simple test that has never really changed: would you say it in front of a black person? If the answer is "no" then its racist. How many of you would throw around the term "hood rats" in front of your black friends? I'm going to guess none of you, and if you act/speak one way when you think it's "safe" vs when in mixed company, that makes you a bit of a cunt doesn't it?

    And how many of us want to be lectured about race by residents of lily-white suburbs?

    “Hood rat” is racist, sexist and class-baiting. According to my BPS-educated kids, using it in school would get you a walk to Guidance. Don’t use it unless you want to sound ignorant.

    Get off the high horses. Did someone mention motorcycles?

    Well, I guess i stand corrected. In my ignorance I would call any little shit (black, white, yellow, male, female, gender fluid) a hood rat if they ran with thugs (sorry, people of any race, gender or non-gender who acted like a pack of dogs) just because only some of them will get caught and because society has done them wrong so they can taunt the police and terrorize streets and highways.

    I seriously had no idea it was a term aimed at a specific race. I also had no idea it was sexist. I don't know if it is class-baiting, because I don't know what class-baiting is. I also don't have the slightest fucking clue what virtue-signalling is either.

    I certainly don't live in the lilly-white suburbs, either.

    I'm pretty sure Degsy knows where he lives. As most metro Boston towns are 95%+ white, I asked what town he lives in to get the facts.

    For example, Norwell

    As the PRM makes it almost impossible to ride dirt bikes legally, not sure anyone should be surprised by this phenomena.

    White alone 3,05 85.5%
    Hispanic 2,529 4.5%
    Black alone 1,527 2.7%

    Lily white is used to mean "characterized by or favoring the exclusion of blacks especially from politics."

    According to the BPD officers I've spoken with, they get a lot of complaints from within communities about these riders so they feel justified in going after them aggressively.

    Whether they infiltrate the groups is unknown to me. They have not publicly acknowledged using dual sports, nor have I seen any. Police bicycles are widespread.

    Do we also want to talk about the fact that houses in your neighborhood are unaffordable and that the impact of gentrification in the city is a huge problem, or that BPS in your reality only means exam or high end charter schools, or that geographic proximity does not equate to actual experience or that during the time our fundamental opinions were formed about these issues, I actually lived in Roxbury, South End and Dorchester for almost 30 years commuting to BLS and Northeastern and not breathing the rarified air of high end academies and ivies.

    I like you, but you’ve pushed the Savin Hill and BPS boats way too far into the harbor.

    We are both dead solid economic 1%ers and neither of us should be “lecturing” anyone.

    I think your comments are fair.

    Boston has one of the highest levels of income inequality in the country, and gentrification is accelerating with developments just about all the way down the Red Line.

    But anyone in Boston who can get their kids into an exam school or charter school would be nuts not to do so: the educational outcomes for most Boston high schools are terrible.

    Re: Dirt Bikes Seized by Boston Police

    No doubt about getting kids into better schools to provide better outcomes and the general state of BPS is a long standing problem.

    Our boys went to the local public schools and had a great experience. On the fringes of the debate in Boston, I've actually heard people make the case that every person of means who uses the exam/charter school route is taking seats at these schools away from deserving students who may not have the same choices if they do not get into on of these schools.

    The argument was being made to depopulate the great schools of student whose parents could afford private schools to maximize the utilization of these valuable seats for more economically deserving students. The idea of using family income as an inverse element of the acceptance process was mentioned.

    p.s. this is way off topic, let's get back to motorcycles...

    Providence RI destroyed 17 vehicles. Denver, CO also destroyed confiscated bikes.
