The black dad was even scared he was like "white boys from Boston don't play". Boston white people must be pretty tough which is understandable with the accent. A white kid from Boston must get a ton of street cred among White people.
Boston proper is less than 50% white

Oh really, the last time I checked it was 53 percent white is still the majority. Boston must be plurality white like in the high 40s in percentage similar to Phily.

According to the census Boston proper is still over 50 percent White which means it's still predominantly White and this is updated stats http://worldpopulationreview.com/us-...on-population/

Whites are less than 50%. And I'm guessing not many of them live in the "rough" neighborhoods.

Boston proper is 44% white. It was 49.5% in 200.

The average white Boston household makes 91k a year,z black in Boston make 44k.

Virtually all the “tough” white people moved out of Boston in the 80s and 90s the last trickle left in the 2000s.

Thats white including Hispanics.

Boston hasn’t been majority white since about 1998. https://www.bostonindicators.org/art...ston-diversity

That confirms my suspicion that white Boston is doing very well. White Manhattan has a similar household income. I think NYC overall is considerably lower, only because of the large amount of Eastern European immigrant immigrants and Hassidic Jews.

White Boston’s been doing well since 1985. Most whites in Boston are not born in Noston and are well off, educated, sheltered and non confrontational. Whites haven’t been over 30% of births in the city since the 1980s...

So the "rough white Bostonite" stereotype is super outdated, like I thought.
