My relatives originally came from Boston(grandparents). I personally have never been , but plan on vacationing there soon. Anyway , this is just a curiosity question from a guy who has too much time on his hands at work.
I am from Chicago where most of our housing projects are majority African America. Is this the case with Boston as well? I have heard its a pretty white city and relatives of mine claim many whites live in the projects in places like Southie, Charlestown etc. Are most of your projects white in Boston?
I am not trying to sound racist just curious.

Most of Boston's housing projects are black, white, latino/a, and Asian. Does that answer your question? And I'm quite sure you're not "trying" to sound racist

Not most, but you got it exactly right - in Charlestown and Southie there are large public housings that are predominantly caucasian.
