    I've been on every line of the commuter rail--I didn't have a car until the last decade--and always there are Black and Hispanic people...and Arab people and Asian people.. On the T closer into Boston it is a complete melting pot even more. Equally divided between all apparent 'races" of humanity. I get bored on the T, so I look around.

    Perhaps it was during rush hour from a rich mostly White community downtown to Boston....so only people from that town mostly were going into Boston to work.

    If he picked that he picked a self-selected nonrepresentative cross section of WHite "liberals". iF it was one of those mostly White very rich towns, some of them on the commuter rail lean REPUBLICAN anyway!!

    Note, people, that overall MA only has 6.6% Black residents and 10% Hispanic. Those numbers are greater toward the city but in some of the very rich towns it's more toward the average.
