There was a busing battle about getting kids in Black neighborhoods onto buses and into schools to integrate them.
A lady on the news in 1975 said that in a few years, the schools would be all coloreds and ni**ers, no whites. Give them fuckin ni**ers everything, then.
Forty years later, Boston public schools are largely PoC, as White Flight took over, leaving schools that used to be quality (which is why integration was so desired in the first place) in shit. They’re more segregated now than when they were allowed to be by law.
Now they’re trying to cut down on the bus system that takes those PoC children into the schools.
This is racism, people. It doesn’t go away. It just changes to suit the new laws and changes name. Instead of “you ni**ers can’t come to our school”, it’s “take all the money of out those schools and move it to where the white kids are going and then make it much harder for Black people to get to those schools because…uh…budget problems!!!”
RACISM HAS NOT SUBSTANTIALLY DECREASED SINCE THE CIVIL RIGHTS ERA.
IT JUST GOES BY MANY DIFFERENT NAMES NOW.
