BREAKING-white mob chasing black men through Boston area streets
(API-Boston) In a city beleaguered by a history of racial tensions another dark day has dawned. Large groups of mostly white people are reportedly chasing a small group of black men in the Boston area.

Others appear to have come out to help in anyway they can setting up tables to give out water and actually offering encouragement, Oh yeah we try to do what we can so we can make it a little bit easier on them, said Terry Markle of Hopkinton.

Local police were even involved blocking off traffic and routing the chase. Well you know these guys they done a lot to get ready for this so you know we do what we can. Let me tell ya they really put a lot into this said Police officer Andy Petraic with a wry smile but you know, it makes them happy so .

<snip>

In addition to the community and municipal involvement this does seem to be well coordinated and anticipated event, the mob even have their own website, proudly boasting of an over one hundred year history of such behavior.

They are fast those guys but if you ask me if they can get to the big Citgo sign near Fenway. Officer Petraic paused, I think theyll make it referring to the chased group, one presumes.


Local Natick residents wait along the route in reenactment period clothing.
