Wow, Bostonians seem like such nice people 😳

Why are Native Bostonians even meaner than Native NYers? Like, calm down. No wonder my friend hates that city lmao. He always says it is because of the people from there. His exact words are “ Bostonians are generally square, self important assholes”

Massachusetts is filled with people like this. The one and only time I was gay bashed was in Springfield, MA.

I was sitting in my car a block away from a gay bar. This college aged guy comes up in front of the car and yells, "Are you a faggot?" I shook my head no. He then bangs his fist on the hood of my car and yells, "If you were, I'd have to rip your head off and shit down your neck."

They're worse than Southern rednecks.

I had to live in Boston for a couple years for work. It was horrid. I put in a transfer request within 6 months, and it took the next year and a half for me to move. I couldn't get out fast enough.

I moved there with my family when I was 14. It was awful. If you’re not from there, and if you’re not Irish or WASP you are viewed as suspect and less than. And the winters are dreadful. I moved away after college and have only been back twice (that was 15 years ago)

It's the Irish Americans for the most part. I always thought it was funny what a victim complex they have given how viciously they tended to bully others.

Any backwater burg produces some beauties. Though many in the list above I wouldn’t agree with at all. In my area we have : Sandra Bullock, Warren Beatty, Julianne Moore, Shirley McLean, Jared Leto, Jim Morrison, and Joan from Mad Men. Oh and Geena Rowland’s. At least. I’m too lazy to look up the whole list. This is just shitty old Arlington Va.

Another factor is all the Ivy League grads. I've noticed hyper educated cities tend to be cold and nasty. DC has a similar energy to Boston.

So an idiot obviously using a cell phone videoing people on the street outside a bar is called out, mostly with silliness, and the OP and the posters here want to shit on Boston for it?

Yes, there are assholes in Massachusetts. As in the taper. And the posters here and the OP show the condition is more prevalent than one state.

Shit. We even have R20 pulling the ancient Irish prejudice.

Sorry about your father, R21. But for the other fools here, bar violence of different forms is common, and not focused on or limited to "Irish Bostonians," which is a fake term anyway because there ain't no Irish there.

It’s that working class English/Irish obnoxiousness. Irish guys from Boston remind me a lot of English yob types who will shit all over you to feed their own tiny egos — even if you’re a total stranger — and if you call them on it they say “I’m just busting ya balls” (or the English version, just havin a laugh or just takin the piss).

by Anonymousreply 3605/22/2020

Boston people are the best. I've visited quite a few times and have always found strangers to be helpful. In fact, I've had multiple experiences where I'm standing in front of a transit map and had people ask if I needed help. You're going to find this one hard to believe, but they have a very cool modesty. One of the 9/11 planes left from Logan Airport, the Boston Marathon bomber...Boston had a big role in major events and they took care of business and then shut up. I don't want to name other cities but some keep reliving awful situations they've been through ad nauseum.

Always hated Boston and don’t understand why people choose to live there. Some good historic architecture is the best I can see. But Philly does it better. The Philly Irish aren’t as virulently racist and violent. There is more diversity and snobbery was never encouraged like in old Boston.

They certainly were NOT civilized when it came to busing in the 1970's.

R46 Stupidest idea ever! Why do you think pols will never back something like that today?

We have school vouchers, which help poor students in bad schools attend better schools. However, you don't take students attending better schools and bus them to shitty schools.

This led to MASSIVE white flight, and decreased Boston's public school enrollment drastically!

I would have been one of the parents, out in the streets, throwing rocks too, if my crumb snatchers had to pull up and leave all their friends/teachers/environment for some ridiculous social experiment. AND YOU WOULD TOO!

by Anonymousreply 5105/23/2020

Boston busing was so mishandled.

While they were busing kids back and forth between South Boston and Roxbury, Chinatown had 100 percent Chinese schools. Not one white, black or brown person ever set foot in in a publicly financed school in Chinatown. So much for diversity.

Sooooo many kids dropped out of school. There was a whole generation who had no diplomas. No money for improvements or programs, only for buses. It impacted the Boston school system for years. Surrounded by universities and colleges but what a crappy school system.

Thank you Judge Garrity.

The Tam is a dive bar in the theater district. Cash only. It's not in South Boston. And I'm pretty sure that guy is Italian. So one asshole out of twenty. Not bad odds in Boston.

I've always liked Boston. I've been there probably a dozen times sometimes on business. And I'm Irish but they wouldn't know that. I find the people there nice and unassuming. Not flashy. People there seem normal to me. Never had any issues except for one hotel security guy who was caught breaking into my room. But he didn't have an Irish last name. The cop who arrested him did.

This Boston aggressiveness and crudeness has been satirized many times on comedy shows - with good reason.

I don't understand it - but if there's a mouthy guy that's quick to fight, many times it's been a guy from Boston, in my experience.

However, they are still behind Long Island and NJ. Lots of trashy, aggressively mean talk there from both men and women. It's insane.

There are working class types in all major US cities, but they're not as aggressive as in Boston and NYC tri-state area. Why is that?

It's like it is some civic counterbalance for culture and refinement.
