BREAKING (earlier today)-white mob chasing black men through Boston area streets

(API-Boston) In a city beleaguered by a history of racial tensions another dark day has dawned. Large groups of mostly white people are reportedly chasing a small group of black men in the Boston area.

Others appear to have come out to “help” in anyway they can setting up tables to give out water and actually offering encouragement, “Oh yeah we try to do what we can … so we can make it a little bit easier on them”, said Terry Markle of Hopkinton.

Local police were even involved blocking off traffic and routing the chase. “Well you know these guys they done a lot to get ready for this so you know we do what we can. Let me tell they really put a lot into this” said Police officer Andy Petraic with a wry smile “but you know, it makes them happy so …”.

In addition to the community and municipal involvement this does seem to be well coordinated and anticipated event, the “mob” even have their own website,proudly boasting of an over one hundred year history of such behavior.

“They are fast those guys but if you ask me if they can get to the big Citgo sign near Fenway.” Officer Petraic paused, “I think they’ll make it” referring to the chased group, one presumes.


Local Natick residents wait along the route in reenactment period clothing.

2. I'd like to see the Boston 99%ers chase the local conservative 1%ers into Boston Harbor.

Pretty sure they can afford to know how to swim, but I'm sure emergency crews, who are 99%ers, would be on standby.

I was hesitant to click on this thread because I didn't think I could stand reading about another racist incident.

13. It'd be fitting if the whites were birthers . . .

. . . after all, they're likely trailing citizens of Kenya.
