Wu’s War on Italians Heats Up
BOSTON MAYOR CALLED OUT BY NORTH END ITALIANS
Atty. Richard C. Chambers, Jr. Leads Charge for Fairness
LYNNFIELD, MA – Attorney Richard C. Chambers, Jr., on behalf of his clients – white Italian male restaurant owners from Boston’s historic North End – added to their lawsuit against Boston Mayor Michelle Wu a charge of apparent racism.
Last year, Wu singled out North End restaurants disproportionate fees to host outside dining. She also limited North End businesses to 5 months, the rest of the city to 9 months. This year, Wu seeks to ban outdoor dining in the North End, and, a website she had created for the city promotes all other areas of the city for dining, but snubs the North End. Italians need not apply.
In a video clip taken at last year’s St. Patrick’s Day brunch – where politicians make jokes, some that come back and bite them as they seem to reflect their true intent, Wu said “I’m getting used to dealing with problems that are expensive, disruptive, and WHITE.” As many have noted, if she had used substituted the word “BLACK,” or “HISPANIC,” or “TRANSGENDER” for WHITE, she would have dunked in Boston Harbor. Instead, jokes against WHITES and of course Catholics, are always par-for-the-course with Boston mayors, it seems.
For this year, the woke Boston Mayor will allow outdoor dining at all restaurants in Boston – except the North End. Chambers has called that a foul ball, and now, the group of mostly white male Italians from the North End are fighting back, unafraid to call out Wu for her apparently discrimination.
“If it is not prejudice, we would like an explanation,” one restaurant owner asked in a WCVB Channel 5 interview last week at the offices of Richard C. Chambers, in Lynnfield, Mass.
