Description

Letter to Mayor Kevin White from a Roxbury resident who is upset at South Boston residents. The writer believes that Boston's black community has responded admirably to busing, while the "non-lace curtain Irish" of South Boston have shamed themselves. The writer strongly believes that busing will benefit all races within Boston and wants the mayor to take a more active leadership role in regards to South Boston's residents.
