Interesting conversation on FB about which subway line in Boston is “the best”: Orange Line or Red Line. A lot of people are supporting the Red line. As I live on the orange line, I’m backing that one, but a lot of people are disparaging of it. However, I noticed something… Could be coincidental.
Red Line stops: Southie (traditionally white). Kendall (white). Harvard (duh). Somerville (white). Alewife (white).
Orange Line stops: Forest Hills (black), Jackson Square (black/Latino), Roxbury (black), Chinatown (duh, part 2).
Ok, there are outliers. The Orange Line does go through Charlestown (working class white) and into Malden (white), and the Red Line goes into Dorchester (black). Still, it did give me pause.
Oh my god. That's almost the most inane conversation imaginable.
I think I should try to get one of those started on Facebook about the MAX. YELLOW LINE ALL THE WAY, BITCHEZ!
