Michael Che picked the Falcons. Said he wanted to see the blackest city in America beat the most racist city he has ever been to 

That's funny. I've always wondered about that too, my pops (black) told me that he always hated the Cetics because they discriminated against black players back in the day. And then my good friend (white) is from up there and she says some of the most ignorant ish ever about race, which is crazy since she dates a black dude. I've always been interested to know how a northern city can be racist you know, it's weird.

You're surprised there's racism in northern cities?  It doesn't excuse the deplorable actions of the south, but there's been horrible **** all over forever.

boston in particular is notorious, but they're not alone.

I only watched the opening  skit. Then Kristen Stewart came on with her gawd awful monologue and I flipped to UFC. If some has a video of the falcon stuff tho that'd be awesome 

Dang it, forgot the UFC came on tonight. I love MMA.

Dana White, good guy. The card must have been forgettable! How did Lagrassa do? The Females on the main card.

It starts by removing from yourself the stigma that the only the south is racist, or more specifically that the north is not.

Racism is racism. It's a long perpetuated myth that it's limited to one area, or that the north was somehow removed of it.

LOT of finishes, but some were meh submissions, and main event was a quick tap tap knockout. Fight of the night had to be the 2nd to last female fight tho, it was something.

Dana can kick rocks in his pats gear <_<

I disagree with that assessment because the first black superstar and coach Bill Russell played for the Celtic. Although in the 80s they had probably more white stars starting than most teams. (bird, mchale and ainge) They had a black coach in kc jones. It really was all perception.

Probably one of the most accurate assessments this Super Bowl season.

Boston is a very racist town. I have family there. They do embrace their star black athletes but it ain't all roses for them either. Bill Russell went thru a lot then too. He was just very diplomatic about it and winning as many championships as he did the city embraced him. Entertainers and athletes are treated slightly different but there was still messed up things that used to happen to them like not sleeping in the same part of the hotel with their white teammates.

I live in the Northeast, and yes it is plenty racist here too. It goes both ways as well unfortunately. Must be human nature or something.

**** has gotten old, that much we should all agree on!

They was on 92.9 The Game back a couple weeks ago talking about how racist Boston is.  There was a white guy who called in and said Boston fans are like that.  They was even talking about how Boston fans called David Price, their OWN pitcher, the n word...

http://www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/david-price-says-he-heard-racist-taunts-from-red-sox-fans-at-fenway-park-in-2016/

 

By the middle of the season, Price said, some fans at Fenway Park heaped abuse on him when he warmed up in the bullpen before starts.

"It got pretty rough," he said. "If you don't like it, pitch better. That's all it is. Mike Brenly, our bullpen catcher, he stood up for me multiple times. The Fenway guards, too, [and] the bullpen cop."

Some of the taunts were racial in nature.

They migrated to the south. The war was over the economy. Neither side cared about black people.

Reminiscent of Keegan's skit on the awards show last night "Atlanta has fans like Usher, Ludicris and Samuel L Jackson, NE has fan that would lock their doors when they see Usher, Ludicris and Samuel L Jackson walking up'

 

but yes, racism is everywhere, worse in some places than others, but it's sad that in this day and time it seems to be worse than ever
