Local families in the predominantly black Roxbury neighborhood of Boston are furious after the city shut down the local community center to instead use it to house more of President Joe Biden’s illegal border crossers.
Roxbury’s Melnea A. Cass Recreational Community Center, which was once a meeting place for Little League ball players, volleyball games, and other sports and community events, has now been dedicated to rows of cots for illegal border crossers, CBS, WBZ-TV Boston reported.
WBZ interviewed pre-teen Jeremiah Rodriguez who showed up at the community center on Feb. 17 under the mistaken impression that his community baseball team was using the facility for batting practice. He was devastated to find out his community center was now closed to him.
“We usually practice. They were closed,” young Jeremiah told the outlet.
Jeremiah’s dad, Yrbin Rodriguez, added, “It’s hard. I didn’t know the immigrants inside. It’s okay to help, I don’t think that’s the place to do it because kids and families go and enjoy.”
But thanks to Biden and Boston Mayor Michelle Wu, the chiefly black community has lost the facility that was once the center of the community. Roxbury is nearly 57 percent black, almost 30 percent Latino, and only six percent white, in a neighborhood that has a median income far under Boston as a whole ($30,654 for Roxbury, $52,433 for Boston overall), according to city of Boston data.
Black community activist Clifton Braithwaite was disgusted with the city’s action.
Braithwaite said folks in the neighborhood are being given short shrift as the city favors Biden’s flood of illegal aliens.
“We care about our immigrant brothers and sisters,
but there has to be a fair balance. How can you tell people that was
down at Mass Cass for over ten years, there was no money for them, and
now you found money,” Braithwaite told WBZ.
The city’s act of taking the Roxbury community center away from the
black community even brought about a shocked post from X chief and Tesla
boss Elon Musk.
Boston is not the only big, Democrat-led city shutting down community
centers, schools, and parks and turning them over to Biden’s flood of
Local outrage also broke out in Chicago late last year when radical
leftist Mayor Brandon Johnson moved to house Biden’s illegal immigrants
in the Galewood neighborhood’s Amundsen Park Field House.
The shutdown plans soon brought massive protests from folks from Galewood and other Chicago residents.
