    5 teams quit youth football league
    Decision stirs racial tensions
    By Donovan Slack, Globe Staff | June 6, 2005

    In what youth football officials are calling a crisis, five suburban Pop Warner teams have voted to leave a conference filled with urban teams, including those from Mattapan, Dorchester, and Roxbury, roiling racial tensions in what is supposed to be a fun activity for 7- to-14-year-olds.

    In interviews, team officials cited ''intimidating" rap music played at some city games, city teams' brand of hard-hitting football, and the safety of some city playing fields. Last summer, 11-year-old Jenry Gonzalez was shot in the chest during a Pop Warner practice in a Roxbury park.

    Boston coaches say the suburban teams' departures are nothing more than thinly veiled racial prejudice and that suburban team officials did not try hard enough to talk things out before leaving.

    ''You can sugar-coat it, but I call it like I see it. I think it's racist," Dorchester Eagles president Kenny Williams said. '' 'Black kids hit our kids harder, black kids listen to rap music' -- it doesn't make any sense to me."

    The allegations of prejudice are flying both ways.

    In a letter obtained by the Globe, Needham-Wellesley officials contend that a Boston coach getting off a bus at their football field egged on his players by saying, ''Let's go get some white [expletive]!" They also said a black coach from Boston called one of their players, who is Haitian, a ''traitor."

    ''We had to leave because our concerns weren't being met with any serious considerations," said Mike Libertini, vice president of the Needham-Wellesley Pop Warner organization, which is establishing a conference with other suburban teams in another league run by American Youth Football.

    For their part, coaches from city teams say that racially charged comments by them or their players are not tolerated. If anyone made them, they say, they no longer have their positions.

    The withdrawals have left the now nine-team Pop Warner conference with only one suburban team, Walpole, and an official there says it is considering withdrawing from the conference as well. Pop Warner officials had an emergency meeting last week and have scheduled another for Thursday to discuss the problem.

    It is perhaps the most contentious chapter in a saga that has played out over more than a decade. Since the first mostly nonwhite city team joined the Bay State Conference almost 12 years ago, predominantly white suburban teams have been leaving.

    The first was Hingham. When the Boston Raiders of Roxbury joined, Hingham team officials said they did not want to travel to the city, conference officials say. Over the years, as teams from Dorchester, Mission Hill, Mattapan, and the South End joined the conference, officials say, teams from Scituate, Randolph, Dedham, and Braintree left. The exodus last month was the biggest to date.

    such bullshit..

    another reason why i hate white people...
    these people get too comfortable with their surrounding and
    expect everyone around them to cater to their needs...


    if you expose your kids to a little more than acoustic gutiars, tevas, abercrombie and surf boards then the kids would have an understanding of other cultures besides white culture..

    they are just mad because these ghetto black kids had the home field advantage..i can just see it now...all these rich fucks driving their BMW SUVs and shit to the "bad side of town" for the game....


    such garbage..
    yes its racism
    or they were intimidated...but isnt that the point in sports?

    Is it just me, or has everyone here started hating/getting tired of white people all of a sudden?
    Is there more than 3 nonwhite people in Channel Zero now?
    Is it just some joke that im not in on?
    Or maybe its just me.

    Don't like this country? You can move the fuck out. Perhaps you would rather be living in Africa living in a fucking straw hut and getting bitten by snakes and other shit. If you're Hispanic... no one brought you here, you came on your own accord. Shut the fuck up and move the fuck out or move out and shut the fuck up.


    Once you have kids you might not want them to play in areas which 11 year olds get shot playing games.

    Im tired of people playing the same fucking racial card over and over again and trying to integrate it into every fucking part of life.

    Just because you don't mind fucked up neighborhoods does not mean others don't.

    he's actually white....

    but yeah, its odd how "i dont want to go to a neighborhood to a field where a child got shot in the chest" automatically means "i dont want to play against black people, fuckin blacks"

    Sounds like you don't like the way this country is run.

    "another reason why i hate white people..."

    At the same time you're trying to argue racism is stupid?

    Point fucking is, if i make enough money to live in the suburbs I don't want my kid playing in the fucking ghetto where I worked my ass off to get out of.
