Boston mayoral contest makes history

The city’s November general election will feature a classic progressive vs. moderate clash.

By LISA KASHINSKY

09/15/2021 09:26 AM EDT

BOSTON — After nearly 200 years of electing white men, Boston will finally elect a woman and a person of color as mayor.

And what have white male Bostonians ever accomplished?

City Councilors Michelle Wu and Annissa Essaibi George are poised to face off in the city’s November general election, setting up a classic progressive vs. moderate clash in a contest that will test the limits of Boston’s liberalism.

Both declared victory last night based on internal tallies, after some 7,000 unprocessed mail and drop-box ballots delayed nearly all of the city’s results well past midnight.

… Essaibi George, who eschews being called a moderate or a centrist, rejected those labels as “lazy” in her victory speech. … “The mayor of Boston cannot make the T free. The mayor of Boston cannot mandate rent control,” Essaibi George said in two direct jabs at Wu and her policies.

If you doubt that Essaibi George is a Person of Color, just compare her to her sons.

Australia has made vast progress toward having lots of Australian Aborigines in demanding positions ever since a judge declared it illegal to make fun of white people who claim to be Aborigines. Perhaps Boston will solve its racial gaps similarly?

    Keep in mind that the article said “Boston will elect …” I guess “Boston” has at least 7,000 ballots stashed in file cabinets such that assuredly it will elect Michelle Wu.

    Tunisians; that is who. It is her father's last name. (Probably related to Arabic Sāḥib ?). She is a Polish-Tunisian. Since she is MENA (Middle-East-North-Africa) on her father's side, she get's to call herself PoC in the 2020 Taxonomy ("Other Race"). She is also very ecumenical: Father is Muslim and mother is Catholic.

    The Boston Globe is on the case:

    Essaibi George said that as a citywide councilor she has broad support and key alliances throughout the city…. Some residents have raised questions about her identity.

    “People tend to be a person of color when it’s convenient,’’ said Jacquetta Van Zandt to the councilor on Van Zandt’s Politics and Proseccopodcast during Black History Month. “How do you identify? And how do you show up in the world?

    Essaibi George, in a Globe interview later, said that she has always identified as Arab and Polish, and said she is proud of the sacrifices of her Polish mother and her father, who was born in the North African country of Tunisia.

    Jacquetta Van Zandt is quite black, so she gets away with pointing out the obvious.

    Half-Tunisian arab is not quite black in the American sense of the word.

    Essaibi George seems to be against destroying elite high schools:

    some residents have expressed concern that she does not support using ZIP codes as a criteria to increase diversity in the city’s exam schools

    Got it, thanks. I'd thought that was her middle or first name. Either way, for you and EPebble, I was being facetious about that because she looks as white as the average white lady.

    BTW, I have a neighbor originally from Tunisia, who came to the US by way of her husband, who was based in Germany. Speaking of "based", she is based as can be, and when we talk politics there isn't a thing she says that doesn't get a "right" from me, or at least my wanting to give her even more details. Without her accent, which seems German, I wouldn't know she wasn't a White American. Oh, and the lady detests the Moslem invasion of Europe. I can't remember if she thinks Herr Merkel's boner was no boner but purposeful.

    From her campaign website:


    Annissa is a daughter of immigrants. Her dad, Ezzeddine, immigrated to the United States from Tunisia in 1972. Her mom, Barbara, was born in a Displaced Persons’ camp in Germany to Polish parents and came to the U.S. in the early 1950s.
     
    She is half Berber, half Polish, which makes her black, just like St. Augustine. If the polling gets close, this Wu person should accuse her grandparents of being Nazi collaborators. They beauty of it being she could make the accusation against both sets and how would George disprove it?
  11. What does Essaibi claim to be? A wild Injun from the Plains? A very high yeller? An oppressed descendant of the conquistadors whose parents moved here from Argentina in 1982?

    How much political power do Irish and Italians still have in Boston? Do either group have any power?

    Italians never had all that much political power in Boston. In any case both groups decamped for the suburbs a while ago. Aggravating that is the peculiar fact that Boston proper is actually a fairly small city - only ca. 680 thousand people and 89 square miles. Unlike New York, London, Berlin, etc. it never managed to swallow up the smaller towns (Cambridge, Brookline, Newton, Revere, etc. ) around it. A lot of Irish Americans still live and work in the Boston metro area but they don't get to vote for the mayor once they decamp for Weymouth, Quincy or Braintree.

  15. Aboriginal appearance is rapidly recessive ( we’ve all seen the photos of the generations of Australian women turning dramatically whiter in appearance).

    It’s certainly possible many of these people do have Aboriginal ancestors (but only if they are mostly of Australian founding stock). Years ago I met a chap in Byron Bay who walked around barefoot with a pet cockatoo and made a living playing the didgeridoo for tourists. He looked a lot like Ralph Fiennes.

    His mate claimed to be aboriginal, too, and he looked like a Greek metalhead. I was a little bemused, but I did get up to go the campground loo one night and ran across these two stalking around in the dark with spears, hunting cane toads. I couldn’t help chuckling a bit, but they were deadly serious.

    There were all sorts of white looking people claiming to be Abos in the hinter land as well, and they weren’t pulling any sort of scam for career advancement. They didn’t have careers. They drank beer a lot and collected money from the Centrelink I’m certain, but in that they weren’t much different from your average white Australian Bogan.

    Rumors say that if you so much as leave the house when someone has sneezed 20 km away, police can lawfully implement the final solution and take you to camp Kangaroo, never to be seen again except as a lampshade.

    Meanwhile, Biden has convinced Australia's PM (who?) to drop a 50 billion USD/EUR contract for diesel-electric subs from France and buy (subsidized?) nuclear subs from the US instead. The French are up in arms (though maybe nuclear submarines are more adapted to the Pacific?) and so is China, but that's not even the worst:

    The world laughed when Biden dissed Australia’s PM as ‘that fella from Down Under,’ but to Aussies like me it’s no joke


    So strong was the impression made on the US commander-in-chief by Morrison that, just minutes after high-level, world-leader-to-world-leader global security discussions that will impact on the international geopolitical situation for years to come, Biden said to his Aussie counterpart, “Thank you very much, pal. Appreciate it, Mr Prime Minister.”

    He was like one of those old guys at a golf club who pays a reluctant caddy to follow him and his buddies around, to congratulate him after each shot and to assure him he’s still got it, before heading back to the clubhouse and never being spoken to again.

    “Thanks pal. Appreciate it. Er, what was that guy’s name?”

    Gormless Morrison just wore it, signalling a cheery thumbs-up in acknowledgement, happy he’d won Biden’s attention, if only for a minute. No wonder Australians have an inferiority complex! We don’t even register with the superpowers of which we’re in awe. It was a confirmation from our very own PM that we’ll put up with being treated like yokels, because after all, we’re not as good as the US, or even the British.

    This behaviour even has a name: the cultural cringe. It is a widely accepted aspect of the Australian character where we undermine our own achievements by viewing them through a foreign culture’s lens: bands are hailed as ‘Australia’s answer to the Rolling Stones’, writers as ‘the Aussie Dickens’, artists as ‘an Australian Picasso’. Never judged good enough to exist solely under their own flag, or on their own credentials.

    So when even our political leaders seem to confirm that the only reason they are at the table in the first place is at the behest of their foreign superiors and we should be grateful for that, while it’s cringeworthy, it’s also our own fault.

    “Michelle Wu graduated from Barrington High School in 2003, where she was valedictorian.”

    I hate to be suspicious (actually, I don’t..that’s why I’m here), but I note the absence of the “definite article.” That is, “THE” valedictorian. It is Wikipedia that omits “the.” My suspicion arises from the fact that, these days, there are sometimes 75 or 150 valedictorians. Further, “first in class” does not solve the ambiguity, because sometimes the ranking is based on the quartile system. That is, anyone in the first quartile is “first in class.”

    “Michelle Wu graduated from Barrington High School in 2003, where she was valedictorian.”

    I hate to be suspicious (actually, I don’t..that’s why I’m here), but I note the absence of the “definite article.” That is, “THE” valedictorian. It is Wikipedia that omits “the.” My suspicion arises from the fact that, these days, there are sometimes 75 or 150 valedictorians. Further, “first in class” does not solve the ambiguity, because sometimes the ranking is based on the quartile system. That is, anyone in the first quartile is “first in class.”

    To steal a joke from some comedian: I dated “a number of” bikini models. The “number” happens to be zero, but who asks about that?

    2003 is almost two decades ago. Not exactly “these days”. Her last name’s Wu, she’s fully NE Asian, and she’s the child of immigrant engineers. I’d have a harder time believing that she wasn’t the valedictorian than she was.

    "Valedictorian" is a title, like "principal" or "manager". The is optional, and usually omitted. As in, "Donald Trump is President."

    In most European languages, "I am manager" means the speaker is a manager. As in profession. In English, it means he is the manager. If there is more than one manager on duty, you'd damned well better include the indefinite a, or risk glares.

    Reps. Ilhan Omar, Gwen Moore seek probe of Fort McCoy conditions for Afghan refugees

    They’re asking the secretary of defense to investigate “possible mistreatment and/or neglect” faced by Afghan refugees.

    By Emily Hamer/Wisconsin State Journal Tribune News Service SEPTEMBER 16, 2021 — 8:37AM

    Wisconsin has a lot of intolerant folk of European stock so this isn’t really a surprise is it?

    Two Afghan women staying at Fort McCoy spoke Saturday with the State Journal about what they are experiencing at the base on the condition of anonymity. Both said the Americans they have interacted with have always been “nice,” but complained of some of the Afghan men at the base harassing women. Some of the Afghan men make inappropriate comments about women’s appearance and skip people in lines, they said.

    The two women, who wanted their identities shielded because they feared a reaction from the Afghan men who are causing problems, said over the weekend they were frustrated with a lack of access to food and clothing. One of the women said she had not been able to change her underwear since escaping out of the Kabul airport in Afghanistan.

    Less than a month in the toxically masculine culture of Althea-Bernstein-burning Wisconsin has turned these mostly peaceful Afghan men into intolerant Haven Monaghans. Investigate now!!!

    Often I joke to my son that he should tick the box when applying for jobs, as nobody is allowed to dispute someone’s alleged black heritage. It’s sacred. But certainly people scoff when they see white people claiming to be successful blacks. Of course this rubbish is promoted by media.
    If that girl pictured above relied on her aboriginal heritage for anything, then she’d be pregnant with her fourth illegitimate child by the age of twenty, and probably sniffing petrol as well.
    Strange though that Americans want to vote for a politician who would make a point about having anything to do with Tunisia. With its past ties with France, that should be enough to turn people off. Maybe they forgot that France was against the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

    Charles Curtis (January 25, 1860 – February 8, 1936) was an American attorney and Republican politician from Kansas who served as the 31st vice president of the United States from 1929 to 1933. He also previously served as the Senate Majority Leader from 1924 to 1929.

    A member of the Kaw Nation born in the Kansas Territory, Curtis was the first person with any Native American ancestry and with acknowledged non-European ancestry to reach either of the highest offices in the federal executive branch. He is the highest-ranking enrolled Native American ever to serve in the federal government. He is the most recent Executive Branch officer to have been born in a territory rather than a state or federal district.

The French are up in arms (though maybe nuclear submarines are more adapted to the Pacific?) and so is China, but that’s not even the worst:

    The world laughed when Biden dissed Australia’s PM as ‘that fella from Down Under,’ but to Aussies like me it’s no joke

    So strong was the impression made on the US commander-in-chief by Morrison that, just minutes after high-level, world-leader-to-world-leader global security discussions that will impact on the international geopolitical situation for years to come, Biden said to his Aussie counterpart, “Thank you very much, pal. Appreciate it, Mr Prime Minister.”

    He was like one of those old guys at a golf club who pays a reluctant caddy to follow him and his buddies around, to congratulate him after each shot and to assure him he’s still got it, before heading back to the clubhouse and never being spoken to again.

    “Thanks pal. Appreciate it. Er, what was that guy’s name?”

    Gormless Morrison just wore it, signalling a cheery thumbs-up in acknowledgement, happy he’d won Biden’s attention, if only for a minute. No wonder Australians have an inferiority complex! We don’t even register with the superpowers of which we’re in awe. It was a confirmation from our very own PM that we’ll put up with being treated like yokels, because after all, we’re not as good as the US, or even the British.

    This behaviour even has a name: the cultural cringe. It is a widely accepted aspect of the Australian character where we undermine our own achievements by viewing them through a foreign culture’s lens: bands are hailed as ‘Australia’s answer to the Rolling Stones’, writers as ‘the Aussie Dickens’, artists as ‘an Australian Picasso’. Never judged good enough to exist solely under their own flag, or on their own credentials.

    So when even our political leaders seem to confirm that the only reason they are at the table in the first place is at the behest of their foreign superiors and we should be grateful for that, while it’s cringeworthy, it’s also our own fault.

    WWI was about the right of Americans to traverse contested waters on armed belligerent merchant ships.

    WWII was mostly about having to do an encore for the sins of WWI

    WWIII will about the right of Chinese casinos to fleece customers.

    If we're going to look for hidden Jews, it's Ms. Essaibi's mother's birth to a "Polish" couple in a displaced persons camp in Germany that's interesting. What were non-Jewish Poles doing at a displaced persons camp in Germany? I suppose it was possible. Maybe Poles from the Kresy that had been impressed into slavery in German factories and now needed to be resettled within Poland's new borders...?

    Well, Joe, there's a plaque at the Navajo operated Four Corners monument in Utah* that gets across who exactly is indigenous and who is not. Here's part of it, verbatim (from the PS post):


    Prior to surveyors setting the Four Corners Monument, this boundless land was inhabited by the Ancestral Puebloans, followed by the Dine, Ute, and other indigenous people. Over time this land was colonized by Spain, taken in war by Mexico, ceded to the US by treaty and organized into territories.
     
    See, Joe, indigenous Indians can conquer other indigenous Indians and take their land, but they are all going to be indigenous, so good folks, good people, the best ...

    Rumors say that if you so much as leave the house when someone has sneezed 20 km away, police can lawfully implement the final solution and take you to camp Kangaroo, never to be seen again except as a lampshade.

    Meanwhile, Biden has convinced Australia's PM (who?) to drop a 50 billion USD/EUR contract for diesel-electric subs from France and buy (subsidized?) nuclear subs from the US instead. The French are up in arms (though maybe nuclear submarines are more adapted to the Pacific?) and so is China, but that's not even the worst:

    The world laughed when Biden dissed Australia’s PM as ‘that fella from Down Under,’ but to Aussies like me it’s no joke


    So strong was the impression made on the US commander-in-chief by Morrison that, just minutes after high-level, world-leader-to-world-leader global security discussions that will impact on the international geopolitical situation for years to come, Biden said to his Aussie counterpart, “Thank you very much, pal. Appreciate it, Mr Prime Minister.”

    He was like one of those old guys at a golf club who pays a reluctant caddy to follow him and his buddies around, to congratulate him after each shot and to assure him he’s still got it, before heading back to the clubhouse and never being spoken to again.

    “Thanks pal. Appreciate it. Er, what was that guy’s name?”

    Gormless Morrison just wore it, signalling a cheery thumbs-up in acknowledgement, happy he’d won Biden’s attention, if only for a minute. No wonder Australians have an inferiority complex! We don’t even register with the superpowers of which we’re in awe. It was a confirmation from our very own PM that we’ll put up with being treated like yokels, because after all, we’re not as good as the US, or even the British.

    This behaviour even has a name: the cultural cringe. It is a widely accepted aspect of the Australian character where we undermine our own achievements by viewing them through a foreign culture’s lens: bands are hailed as ‘Australia’s answer to the Rolling Stones’, writers as ‘the Aussie Dickens’, artists as ‘an Australian Picasso’. Never judged good enough to exist solely under their own flag, or on their own credentials.

    So when even our political leaders seem to confirm that the only reason they are at the table in the first place is at the behest of their foreign superiors and we should be grateful for that, while it’s cringeworthy, it’s also our own fault.

    Her father was Tunisian. So she and her father are counted as White by the US census. North Africans are still considered Caucasian and have been considered caucasoid since Racist Europeans began classifying people by race. It is interesting how media continues to consider non-European Whites as Non-White, even the NY times counts Ted Cruz as one of the non-white Senators.

    If North Africans, Arabs and Persians are no longer counted as white the US population is now has 185 million whites, not the recently reported 190 million. Although I assume the ivy league schools probably give applicants from North Africa racial Pokémon points.

    There were lots of Slavs left behind in Germany at the end of the war who were not eager to go back to now Soviet Eastern Europe. As you surmise, a lot of them had been brought to Germany as farm or factory labor because so many young German men were away fighting at the front. Under the Nazis, they were not treated as concentration camp prisoners like the Jews (unless they were guilty of other "crimes" such as resistance activity) - e.g. civilian clothes instead of striped uniforms and not kept behind barbed wire, but weren't treated super duper great or paid full wages either.

    After the war, some of the ones from the eastern part of Poland that was now Soviet territory because the Polish border had been shifted west (Galicia, Polish Lithuania) were especially not eager to go back to their hometowns (others ended up resettling in former German territories that were given to Poland). Some of them (not Poles but Ukrainians, Lithuanians, etc.) had been concentration camp guards or German collaborators - those guys were especially not eager to go back and face Soviet justice.

    I think that these folks had their own refugee or sections of camps and were not mixed in with the Jewish displaced persons camps. Eventually some of them made their way to the US or Canada under the same programs that brought in Jewish refugees.

    Growing up I knew a couple of these guys who worked as farm labor on my parent's egg farm and the farms of my uncles. They were your textbook Polish peasants who never learned English and like to drink a bit and roll their own cigarettes. This didn't make them a good fit for a lot of careers but working on a farm with Polish speaking owners was in their wheelhouse.

    A lot of white blacks seem to gravitate towards cushy government jobs. Like going around to spend time talking to abos about how life is treating them. Or delivering breakfasts to kids whose parents are too hopeless to look after them. It’s a great lurk if you can score it.
    Often I joke to my son that he should tick the box when applying for jobs, as nobody is allowed to dispute someone’s alleged black heritage. It’s sacred. But certainly people scoff when they see white people claiming to be successful blacks. Of course this rubbish is promoted by media.
    If that girl pictured above relied on her aboriginal heritage for anything, then she’d be pregnant with her fourth illegitimate child by the age of twenty, and probably sniffing petrol as well.
    Strange though that Americans want to vote for a politician who would make a point about having anything to do with Tunisia. With its past ties with France, that should be enough to turn people off. Maybe they forgot that France was against the invasion of Iraq in 2003.

    After the war, some of the ones from the eastern part of Poland that was now Soviet territory because the Polish border had been shifted west (Galicia, Polish Lithuania) were especially not eager to go back to their hometowns (others ended up resettling in former German territories that were given to Poland). Some of them (not Poles but Ukrainians, Lithuanians, etc.) had been concentration camp guards or German collaborators – those guys were especially not eager to go back and face Soviet justice.

    I think that these folks had their own refugee or sections of camps and were not mixed in with the Jewish displaced persons camps. Eventually some of them made their way to the US or Canada under the same programs that brought in Jewish refugees.

    Growing up I knew a couple of these guys who worked as farm labor on my parent’s egg farm and the farms of my uncles. They were your textbook Polish peasants who never learned English and like to drink a bit and roll their own cigarettes. This didn’t make them a good fit for a lot of careers but working on a farm with Polish speaking owners was in their wheelhouse.

    Thanks, very interesting. Come to think of it, I did hear somewhere that Breslau got resettled largely with folks from Lwow.

    Your egg farm wasn't in New Jersey by any chance?

    There were lots of Slavs left behind in Germany at the end of the war who were not eager to go back to now Soviet Eastern Europe.

    I knew of a large dog that would deliberately mouth cane toads to get a buzz from the poison. He loved it.

    Abo dog, eh?

    Replies: @Jiminy

    It’s funny you should say that. Just a couple of days ago I said to the wife how the white-black next door should start licking the backs of the cane toads instead of icing up. A lot cheaper. Then tonight she showed me the news feed where now he’s just been caught driving while disqualified with alcohol in his system, and with his little kid in the car as well. So now he’ll have to mow yards for a while until he becomes savvy with the white mans ways. These people get so many second chances that I’m sure they don’t realise how lucky they are.

    Charles Curtis (January 25, 1860 – February 8, 1936) was an American attorney and Republican politician from Kansas who served as the 31st vice president of the United States from 1929 to 1933. He also previously served as the Senate Majority Leader from 1924 to 1929.

    A member of the Kaw Nation born in the Kansas Territory, Curtis was the first person with any Native American ancestry and with acknowledged non-European ancestry to reach either of the highest offices in the federal executive branch. He is the highest-ranking enrolled Native American ever to serve in the federal government. He is the most recent Executive Branch officer to have been born in a territory rather than a state or federal district.

    That black population is not very inclined to extend themselves to the Asian community.

    Will they prefer a Polish-Tunisian Muslim-Catholic over Wu? Won't they consider Essaibi George an inauthentic PoC while Wu is a kinda PoC?

    In Boston, like in every major city these days, there is an uneasy co-existence between blacks & Asians. When blacks are not beating Asians senseless they are resentful of the Asian-owned stores that serve them.

    When blacks are not beating Asians senseless

    How have they regressed. Once upon a time, a famous man thundered:


    My conscience won’t let me go shoot my brother, or some darker people, or some poor, hungry people in the mud, for big, powerful America, and shoot them. For what? They never called me nigger. They never lynched me. They never put no dogs on me. They never robbed me of my nationality, or raped and killed my mother and father. … How can I shoot them poor people? Just take me to jail.

    How did you get from that surname to religion? It’s not like her last name is Cohen or Mahmud.

  114. We can all agree that while Tunisians are absolutely White, and at the very least Honorary Aryans like their Italian and Spanish Brothers, her claim to PoC status comes from being Polish, who are Black, and at the very least, Brown.

    Once upon a time, a famous man thundered:
     
    A man who hung out just two blocks away from the Parkside Elementary School Paramont Studio head Sherry Lansing attended but a decade earlier in Chicago.

    Shortly after announcing that he had converted to Islam in 1964, Ali spent more than a decade in and out of Chicago. He first settled into a small, third-floor apartment in the 7000 block of South Cregier Avenue. By the time he left Chicago for good in the late 1970s, he had bought a 28-room mansion in Kenwood, two blocks from Nation of Islam leader, Elijah Muhammad.

    During his early years on the South Side, Ali tried to blend in. He strolled alone underneath the "L" tracks, casually dressed in a button-down shirt and slacks. He hung out with friends at the automobile garage at 69th Street and Stony Island Avenue. Often, he could be found at the Nation of Islam's bakery on 79th Street, flirting with the teenage waitress who would become his second wife.

    Obama bought his Chicago house in the Nation of Islam leadership neighborhood. That's why he called up Tony Rezko, who had been Muhammad Ali's manager and was the business brains of Wallace Muhammad's orthodox Sunni branch of the NoI. Rezko knew a lot about the neighborhood because he'd represented NoI big shots in their home purchases.

    For some reason, the fact that Rezko had been Muhammad Ali's NoI manager was considered too boring to mention by the press.
