Revere Beach got wicked clammy this week

WBZ reports the snor'easter washed zillions of clams up onto Revere Beach, providing an all-you-can-eat buffet for area gulls. The station cautions the clams are not good eatin' for people, though - they might be contaminated.

I wonder if natives would eat shored clams. I’m too lazy to Google it

The reason for the warning is the water there's so polluted. That wouldn't have been a problem for the natives.

Revere Beach still is the only beach I know of with a strange foam.

But then again, people seem to eat the Clams at Constitution Beach in Eastie. You know the one... at the end of Runway R22 . Mmmmmmmm Yum.. Jet Fuel Carbons.

I find your use of natives in this instance offensive.

Why offensive? Doesn’t “natives” equally mean “people who were born there” and “people whose ancestral home was there?”

While “native” is generally not considered offensive, it may still hold negative connotations for some. Because it is a very general, overarching term, it does not account for any distinctiveness between various Aboriginal groups. If you are referencing a specific group, it is generally considered more respectful to use another term that more specifically denotes which peoples you are referring to.

I used to hear this all day, every winter day when I worked in the Navy Yard.

The gulls would take a shelfish, fly up high, then drop it.

The walkways were littered with shells and other former shellfish spooge.
