Southie pride, oh please.

I'd rather spend all my days on Humboldt Ave. Where actual Bostonians live, and don't discrimnate based off of color (or at least don't hilurk epithets and rocks, and scribble graffiti aimed at people who don't look like them).
Holy Crap you invented a time machine?

They don't discriminate - given their generally poor aim they shoot everyone equally, be it a rival gangbanger or a random five year old.

Seriously...clearly the rest of boston ( who are not all Irish btw) have little desire to live in the area of Humboldt avenue. Thankfully Humboldt avenue does not represent boston in any way shape or form. I think the rest of the area is waiting for those types to 'die off' and get their sh*t together.

They will die off. But there are other generations behind them waiting to take the ranks.
