Seeking Interview Subjects

1114-bulger

I am currently searching for members of the South Boston community who would like to share their story about how Whitey impacted their life. With the impending film scheduled to be released this summer, I am hoping to produce a series of short films of Southie residents sharing their experience in their voice.

This is not an attempt to capitalize on the sensationalism of Whitey’s personal story, but an effort to provide an outlet for those who feel that their voice has not yet been heard. 

If you feel that you know someone who might be a good candidate, please pass this post along.  For skeptics out there, I encourage you to reach out to me, and I will show you my film about busing in South Boston free of charge.

    It is unclear to me if the film is completed, but I hope top see it at some point.
    I thought I’d mention that there is a conservative Catholic scholarly man who has
    a website ‘culturewars.com’, and produces an internet magazine by that name; his
    name is E. Michael Jones. I have listened to a number of interviews with him online
    by various internet radio programs and he is a compelling speaker; I just listened
    to an interview with him yesterday with ‘red ice radio’ that I found on YouTube
    and he mentioned in passing a book he wrote, some years ago, about several East Coast cities including Boston but he is most familiar with Philadelphia, that were targeted, in his view, for ethnic cleansing in the Urban Renewal schemes but also, I think forced school busing for putative integration also fits into this though I don’t know if he included it in the book. I have not read the book but I did peruse it at length in the library some years ago. And it is to mention this author and that book that I thought to comment. It may well be in the BPL but if not is accessible from Interlibrary Loan. Below is a blurb about the book from the website:

    “The Slaughter of Cities: Urban Renewal as Ethnic Cleansing by E. Michael Jones will shock and edify you. Focusing on Boston, Philadelphia, Detroit, and Chicago, Jones shows that Government sponsored “renewal” of American cities was not a program that failed by going sadly awry, but instead was a planned destruction of the ethnic neighborhoods that made up the human, residential heart of the cities.”

    Perhaps this, below, is the interview I recently listened to; he also mentioned the USS Liberty whose anniversary as chance would have it, was a couple of days ago; that is an eye opening bit of shameful history worth knowing about and there are a couple of videos about it, one made with interviewing some surviving crew members. But not ostensibly related to School busing in Boston in 1974.

    Also since I am recommending information sources, I would highly recommend the book:
    THE CULTURE OF CRITIQUE by evolutionary psychologist Professor Kevin B. MacDonald; it is an amazing eye opener to the past century that was prelude to America today.
    There are many interviews with MacDonald on the internet as well.
    Please feel free to ignore my gratuitous suggestions if of no interest.
    And there is no need to respond to this comment.
