A Boston woman says she found herself being accosted by an angry white man simply because she parked her motorcycle on the street where he lived.
In a video posted on her Facebook page, Boston resident NeNe Judge’Mayo can be seen getting screamed at by a white man after she parked her motorcycle in what he described as “his neighborhood” of Dorchester — despite the fact that Judge’Mayo lives in Dorchester as well.
“Do you live here?” the man yelled at Judge’Mayo, who replied affirmatively that she did.
This, however, only seemed to enrage the man further and he insinuated that he would get shot due to her presence on his street.
“I’m not getting shot in my neighborhood!” he yelled. “This is my f*cking neighborhood! It’s my f*cking neighborhood! You’re bringing this f*cking sh*t into my neighborhood? No! No!”
Eventually, a police officer comes and asks the man to move away from the area.
“I don’t care where she lives,” the officer tells the man.
“This is my neighborhood!” the man pleads to the officer. “Now you’re taking it out on me? You’re taking it out on me?”

Rep. Ilhan Omar asks judge to ‘show compassion’ for man who threatened to put bullet in her head
After a man accused of threatening her life pled guilty to the crime in a U.S. District Court, Rep. Ilhan Omar on Tuesday released publicly a letter she wrote asking the federal judge presiding over the case to "show compassion" in his sentencing.
Patrick W. Carlineo Jr., a 55-year-old man from upstate New York, pled guilty on Monday on gun charges and for threatening to murder Omar in phone calls he made to her congressional office in March of this year. But in her letter to Judge Frank P. Geraci Jr., Omar said that while the charges were quite serious she did not think that an overly punitive sentence was the answer.
Why saying ‘OK boomer’ at work is considered age discrimination – but millennial put-downs aren’t
The phrase “OK boomer” has become a catch-all put-down that Generation Zers and young millennials have been using to dismiss retrograde arguments made by baby boomers, the generation of Americans who are currently 55 to 73 years old.
Though it originated online and primarily is fueling memes, Twitter feuds and a flurry of commentary, it has begun migrating to real life. Earlier this month, a New Zealand lawmaker lobbed the insult at an older legislator who had dismissed her argument about climate change.
Academic experts analyze Johnson and Corbyn’s claims in first 2019 UK election debate
Boris Johnson, the UK prime minister, and Jeremy Corbyn, leader of the Labour Party, have answered questions from the public in a head-to-head debate as they prepare for the country’s general election on December 12.
A court ruling earlier in the day upheld ITV’s decision not to offer podiums to either the SNP or the Liberal Democrats. On stage, though, Johnson and Corbyn appeared strangely dwarfed in front of a set that appeared borrowed from Blade Runner.
The two candidates levelled numerous accusations at each other during their hour on stage – but which are to be believed? Conversation articles by academic experts provide informed perspectives, grounded in research. Here’s what they’ve had to say on the issues that arose.
