The press attention is convenient.

There's a whole long post on their Facebook page that makes mention of even more racist graffiti.
https://www.facebook.com/blackmarketdudley/posts/500692163679832

We have been battling with graffiti outside on the fencing beside our business for 2 months and going back and forth with the City of Boston Roxbury Neighborhood Constituent Service Representative, Josh McFaddin who has been working on solutions with us.

Chris was taking a series of pictures of the graffiti on the fence yesterday to only to discover that in the background of some of the photos, the business’s wall was littered with hate speech.

Not seeing it in the photo.

Unless, of course, the city's Graffiti Busters team decides to obliterate that, while ignoring tons of actual graffiti in the same neighborhood because they haven't received a specific 311 report about each individual tag.

What's funny is that since the City obliterated the Linden St. mural because it was "sexist" (though after it was redone to remove all sexism), the site has been covered in normal crappy graffiti and the City has done no further graffiti removal.

Normally murals discourage graffitti because the people who do graffitt do not want to disrupt a positive image... if they are writing white lives matter on the side of a black shop I wonder if a mural depicting happy black residents would discourage them?

I hate to chime in on this, but I will

By on

Mainly because I do think this could be fishy. Or it could be a legit racist act. The reason I think it is fishy is because if I (and I consider myself about average for white Bostonians when it comes to being racist) wanted to throw up some racist graffiti, "white lives matter" would be really low on my list of things to write. The closest thing I can think of is to cover up the first word in "black lives matter" with the word white, but that wasn't done here. I mean, I don't want to provide other ideas, because I would scantly want to write or speak them, but suffice to say some racial slurs would be what one would lead with, not a rephrasing of a catchphrase in the civil rights movement.

I mean, the theory is that some racist white person (or people) went all the way to Dudley Square, broke out the spray paint, and wrote that!? It just seems fishy to me.

On a semi related note, there was some poor woman who had what really looked like a racist statement written on her wall or fence or whatever in the South End a little while back. It was pretty bad. However, it was also the title of a reggae song from the 1970s. Can't excuse the graffiti. Can't excuse the phrase. But there is a good chance that the person who wrote it was either black or was really down with black culture.

Inconceivable!

By on

I mean what are the chances that a person who's been trying to get the city to go after the people who've been putting graffiti on her building would do something to make it impossible for the city to ignore the graffiti on her building?

And it's not illegal either, that's the beauty of it. Putting graffiti on your own building isn't a crime and telling the city "zOMG! look at what's on my wall!" isn't filing a false report either, since there's real graffiti on there.

And the free ad in the Globe (and on Uhub) is icing on the cake.

And the tastier icing is that there isn't actually anything to get angry about from either side should the truth come out. "White lives matter" is pretty sedate.

Yawn

Gaslighting and fake "gotcha" sites are not reality.

This market has pretty well documented what is going on across a number of sources - IF you bothered to read the article.

Of course the right wing wants to ban any and all people carrying around signs in protest because they don't want to cope with the cognitive dissonance of witnessing reality.

How a racist would react

By on

The reason I think it is fishy is because if I (and I consider myself about average for white Bostonians when it comes to being racist) wanted to throw up some racist graffiti, "white lives matter" would be really low on my list of things to write.

But if you were a racist white person, or even an I'm-not-a-racist-white-person-BUT white person, and you saw "Black Lives Matter" on the wall, you might very well be moved to spray "White Lives Matter" on top and feel all good about yourself for doing so.

My counterpoint

By on

If I have a thing about black people, what they heck would I be doing in Dudley Square.

Now, if I really wanted to mark BLM up in the most racist of ways, I'd add a "don't" after "lives" (but again, in reality I would never do that, just to be crystal clear.) Someone a bit more racist than me might cross out "black" and put "all" (and again, I would not do that in reality, for so many reasons.) But that's not what happened here, so the BLM thing is very theoretical.

Conversely, since it has been established that the word "white" has been on the building for some time, the odds of someone going by the wall and being inspired to add "lives matter" is an interesting one. Could it have been a ploy by the building owner to get the wall cleaned by the City? Maybe. Could someone really have decided to mess with the community by adding to the original work? Perhaps. Who knows?

I understand that 80% of it is pleasant-sounding nonsense and another 10% is outright lies. That's what comes with understanding...the ability to evaluate and judge.

Now you're supposed to tell me that I can't understand because I'm not black, so I just have to trust the people telling me what to think.

Then I come back with something about scientific falsifiability and not allowing the passions of the crowd to dictate public policy.

Then you call me a racist again.

Then if I'm still paying attention to the thread, I call out a couple of the lies by name, like "hands up, don't shoot" or the testimony presented at George Zimmerman's trial, or statistics about police use of force relative to interactions with members of all races, or whatever.

Then if you're paying attention and if you're really into it, you give me an anecdote about someone you know or someone in the news getting the Doug Glanville treatment.

Then I come back with a counterpoint about how the two guys in the Starbucks wouldn't have caused a scene if they'd paid two dollars for a coffee instead of causing a scene. I might add how white man me would probably have been asked to leave too if he'd asked to use the bathroom and refused to buy anything or leave after being told it was for customers only, and how I've seen homeless people in the coffee shop two blocks away from that one buy a coffee before using the bathroom because that was store policy and they didn't want to make a scene either.

By that time it's probably 2AM and it's bedtime. Who knows what we'll find on the forums the following morning to get our blood pumping?

Roman. Roman. Roman.

"I understand that 80% of it is pleasant-sounding nonsense and another 10% is outright lies. That's what comes with understanding...the ability to evaluate and judge."

If you are lying to me, that is a problem, even 10 percent. And what part of "white lives matter' is pleasant?

"Now you're supposed to tell me that I can't understand because I'm not black, so I just have to trust the people telling me what to think."

I am not black, either, and no, that is not what I meant.

"Then I come back with something about scientific falsifiability and not allowing the passions of the crowd to dictate public policy."

This has nothing to do with crowd psychology. Equating "white lives matter" or "all lives matter" with "black lives matter" is wrong and, yes, racist.

"Then you call me a racist again."

I am not calling you, personally, a racist. But your comments scare me.

"Then if I'm still paying attention to the thread, I call out a couple of the lies by name, like "hands up, don't shoot" or the testimony presented at George Zimmerman's trial, or statistics about police use of force relative to interactions with members of all races, or whatever."

And I would come back with refutes to discount your misinformation.

"Then if you're paying attention and if you're really into it, you give me an anecdote about someone you know or someone in the news getting the Doug Glanville treatment."

Naw, at that point, why would I waste my time?

"Then I come back with a counterpoint about how the two guys in the Starbucks wouldn't have caused a scene if they'd paid two dollars for a coffee instead of causing a scene. I might add how white man me would probably have been asked to leave too if he'd asked to use the bathroom and refused to buy anything or leave after being told it was for customers only, and how I've seen homeless people in the coffee shop two blocks away from that one buy a coffee before using the bathroom because that was store policy and they didn't want to make a scene either."

Really? Well, the two black guys said they were there for a business meeting. And, honestly, Starbucks has a pretty liberal policy of letting folks hang out...except if you are black, apparently.

It's a modified noun - Black Lives - and a verb, Matter. It states that there is value to black lives. That's all it says. It's not the fault of activists or black people that people can't read, and seem to interpret a VERY simple statement as ambiguous or as some variation of "ONLY black lives matter," "black lives matter MORE," "black lives matter and you're racist," or whatever absurd misreading they're using to justify such a virulent reaction.

Without your astute observation, we probably would have forgotten all about white people! I know I forget about them all the time, which is weird, because I am one and am surrounded by them. It sure is a systemic problem, what with white people having no advocates anywhere in government, law enforcement, health care, education, transportation, industry, finance, or technology. Maybe you can help spearhead the movement to bring white identity back to the forefront, where it definitely is not and has not been since the first days of European colonization.

One definition...

By on

But it's a doozy.

Black Lives Matter
[blak lahyvz mat-er]
noun
1. a political and social movement originating among African Americans, emphasizing basic human rights and racial equality for black people and campaigning against various forms of racism. Abbreviations: BLM, B.L.M.

More information can be found here:


I'm happy to provide this definition and further resources for self-education because I believe it is important and because providing information is what I do and am passionate about. But the reason why people don't serve you up a definition on demand isn't because they don't owe you one and you're not entitled to one. That isn't intended to be cruel or social justice warrior-y, it just is. If you see someone in a wheelchair, you're not entitled to know *why* they're in a wheelchair. You can, however, take it upon yourself to learn about disability and access and ensure that you treat people in wheelchairs the same way you treat people who aren't in wheelchairs, which is, hopefully, respectfully.

I hope you will take the definition and further information as a starting point to learn more about the movement and why so many people are passionate about saying "Black Lives Matter." I hope it will encourage you to do some self-reflection. And I hope you'll discover that black lives are as important as white lives and brown lives and the lives of all your fellow humans.

What is different about this iteration of white nationalism is how the movement is framing its ideas, and the place those ideas occupy in U.S. politics.

I will concede to the current existence of white proliferation, but NOT any sort of white identity beyond what is displayed by white nationalists. Most white people have a lot more important things to do than put the word white in front of things to make themselves feel better. I believe 99 percent of white people do not even think about being white.

White privilege does exist in the USA, but the whites have both fought themselves and worked together for eons to end up with it as a by-product. Playing victim did not produce too many privileged winners over the centuries and it is not going to work now.

We already know that white lives matter

By on

Our entire culture is full of white people and their lives mattering. How many things in this country are named after George Washington, one of the most famous white guys? We don't need to say that white lives matter because we can see it plainly in who runs companies, who is in our government, who is pictured on our currency (with the exception of the Sacajawea gold dollar coin), who we name things after, who is on television in starring roles, etc etc etc.

Black Lives Matter does not equal White Lives Don't Matter.

Black Lives Matter equals something like... Black Lives Should Matter Just As Much As White Lives But Often They Do Not And People of Color Especially Black People Tend to Face Violence At The Hands Of White Officers And In Other Situations Where Violence Would Not Be Used On White People.

Further, the phrase "White Lives Matter" has been trotted out in response to "Black Lives Matter" and has never been used otherwise.

In this case, defacing the property is not childish. Childish is spray painting a butt or "so-and-so is dumb." Spray painting "White Lives Matter" on a black-owned business is violence and possibly even classifiable as a hate crime. It is intended to wound. It is intended to denigrate. It is intended to cause fear in black people. It's wrong.

Saying that black lives matter doesn't mean that your life doesn't. Stop centering yourselves in this conversation. This isn't about you. We already know that white lives matter, given the advantages we as white people have in this country, just by existing- employment, housing, inherited wealth, education, protection by police, etc. Black people have NEVER been afforded the same advantages white people have always had in this country. Black lives matter, and if you feel the need to argue with this statement, you're part of the problem. Black lives matter.

In the last 12 months, fat ugly social justice warrior chick articles are running 37 white to 1 black.

...can't it be both?

capecoddah is much more predictable than the MBTA, although I think it's a tossup between him and Roman for disingenuous sea-lion bullshit. Both are rancid racist trash, though. Too bad uhub doesn't have a block feature; they're given liberty to crap their racist sexist bullshit all over here.

Kweli responded by accusing Turtleboy of being racist

By on

I didn't know Aidan Kearney AKA TurtleBoySports lost his job as a teacher at Shepard Hill and had a beef on social media with Talib Kweli Greene

masslive:

Hip-hop star Talib Kweli has sued Worcester's controversial Turtleboy Sports blog for defamation, character assassination and cyber harassment -- though it is unclear whether the suit will proceed.

The lawsuit pits Kweli against Turtleboy, the Worcester blog owned by Aidan Kearney that regularly publishes profane takedowns of Worcester politicians, progressive social media users and others.

"I sent him a cease and desist after, and normally, I don't ignore that stuff, but I have enough truth on my side that I confront all of it," Kweli told Billboard. "But this one, I went the extra step and some blog got a hold of the letter and there's now a story circulating that I'm suing this guy. There's no lawsuit or litigation happening. It's just like, 'Ok. If you keep talking shit, it's going to be an issue.' "

The dispute dates back to April of 2017, when Turtleboy interjected into a Twitter debate between Kweli and several anti-abortion Twitter users to accuse the hip-hop artist of "bragging" about paying child support.

Kweli responded by accusing Turtleboy of misrepresenting his statement and being racist, while the blog's Twitter account took shots at Kweli's career and suggested he was not being a "real dad" to his children.

Kweli then linked to a since-deleted post on the blog Buffalo Bruises, which alleged that Kearney had sexually harassed a woman at a game between the New England Patriots and the Buffalo Bills, leading to his termination from a teaching job at Shepherd Hill Regional High School.

Super Fishy

If you put the address into Google Maps and look at street view pictures from 2016 you can see the Graffiti predates the existence of Black Market ,and to me it looks like it just says "WHITE".
"lives matter" looks like it had been added.
Also, the Black Market Facebook page is gone.
