This was a legit City Council Meeting which was on local TV - not staged. This is how he talks. The Kennedy’s do not speak with a normal Boston Accent and you won’t hear any Kennedy accents in Boston if you visit.

Updated at 11:40 ET The editors of The Boston Herald issued an apology of sorts Wednesday, saying they “sincerely regret if we inadvertently offended anyone" with a political cartoon that trafficked in racial stereotypes

It was no accident. They were catering to their readers. And I bet they had a good laugh too.
Boston Herald, Boston Globe are both conservative newspapers. Their readers are racists and so are their writers, so this doesn’t even come as a surprise to me. If you wish to transport yourself to the 1930s or the south in 2014, read some of the articles or even some of the contents. But I warn you, you will feel your IQ dropping when you do. Before you know it, you’d have the IQ to become a cop.
