Original Article

Posted By:JoniTx, 3/17/2013 4:20:49 PM

The mayor of Philadelphia has called for an investigation into a controversial article recently published in a local magazine titled ´Being White in Philly.´ The story that appeared in Philadelphia Magazine this month features a series of interviews with unnamed white residents living in different parts of Philadelphia who talk about their dealings with African-Americans. Calling the article´s tone ´disgusting,´ Mayor Michael Nutter has asked the Human Relations Commission to look into some of the race-related concerns raised by the article.

Demonization and PC go hand in hand. Ben Carson is so right, this is eating into our civic culture and destroying the right to free speech.

Perhaps Mayor Nutter should be more concerned about making sure the inner city youth are getting an education and staying off the streets instead of flash mobbing.

I read the rather long article from first to last. I have no way of knowing if it was all factually true, but it had the ring of veracity to it. Mayor Nutter needs to face facts.

The other day I was walking through a parking lot at a shopping center and a car with four black ladies, probably middle-aged (not youngsters I am trying to say) drove by with their windows down and their stereo blaring some rap "music". In the short time it took for them to pass me, I heard the n-word. Now, why are we racist again????

Leftists crush their adversaries and the truth. Solving problems is no fun and does not advance the narrative. We can´t have journalists just running around around with their own opinions. That would be too crazy.

Is it at all possible to give this nimrod a test to find out if he actually read the article or is it simply the title that he´s offended by?
Keep up the good work mayor...along with the rest of the "nutters" ruining America´s big cities, i.e. Chicago, New York (Bloomers is NOT a republican), the imbecile in Newark, NJ, the imbecile in Boston, etc., etc..

Lived in Philly for 15 years -including the Wilson Goode years.He was the first black Mayor.
When he BOMBED the west Philadelphia compound of the MOVE people killing and maiming the occupants, including children, and destroying 125 black middle class homes -he got a pass!
He double downed by hiring a black contractor to rebuild the homes -who promptly went to prison.
Once the homes were built at a cost of 175 K each - they lasted 15 years before being torn down because they were unsafe.
The problem is not money -it is the Culture and now our Racist in Chief is making things worse.
Nutter is continuing the racist destruction of the black community-from within.
They can´t blame The Man -Obama is The Man.
Their extravagant lifestyle of the Obamas fits the worst sterotypes.
50percent of blacks in phila don´t even graduate from high schools-they have no present and no future -but they get free housing, obamaphones and food stamps to have more failures.
Nutter should focus on the illegitimacy rate in the black community, the predator males, the criminals preying on the young and get off the Race Pimp bandwagon.

It´s not a racial thing so much anymore, but is all about the degenerate, disgusting, and violent culture that most USA ghetto black folks have created for themselves in just about all the big cities. Only those black folks can back out of the gutter level cultural situation that they have put themselves in, but obviously they are not ready to do that, and don´t want to hear the truth.

We lived in Baltimore County for 15 years, and I worked in East Baltimore. What´s described in the original article rang true for me, and I felt that a lot of the people interviewed in this article could have been from Baltimore, or many places on the I-95 corridor. Instead of dismissing the article as "disgusting," wouldn´t it have been amazing if the mayor had said, "I hear you," to the people who feel this way, and maybe opened up some nonjudgmental, honest conversations?

The left created the terrible conditions in all of our decaying cities. In Baltimore, Senator/Councilman Mikulski sat on her butt aided by Senator Sarbanes and a host of loser Baltimore mayors who followed Mayor Schaefer watched as tens of thousands of good jobs left the city and Maryland. Bethlehem Steel once employed 35,000 men...now all but gone. National Can, Continental Can, American Can, Lever Brothers, Crown Cork and Seal, General Motors Fisher Body all gone. All of this because of the social experimenters. Let´s bus students across the city, set up Section 8 housing, penalize a family which has a father in place. Thank you President Johnson for the Vietnam War and the war on poverty...I hope he is burning. Now Governor O´Malley is taking up the gauntlet as he watches industry and wealth flea the state. Hey, let´s try gay marriage, drug legalization, make felons out of law abiding citizens by declaring their weapons of protection illegal. I grew up in east Baltimore and went to public schools and received a great education. In two generations this city became diseased...what a tragedy. The greatest generation led to a generation of takers. Mayors who stole the $ 50 dollar coupons intended for Christmas gifts. A Councilwoman who used phony SS numbers to set up family members on a pay roll. A woman who recently ran for Congress and was discovered to be voting multiple times in recent elections. Sodom you had nothing over Baltimore and I am sure Philly, Detroit, Chicago, Atlanta, Etc

I have not seen such polarization and animosity between the white and black races since 1960. And if it develops into a race war, we can thank the Divider-in-Chief Obama.
From the very beginning he has taken sides against white people with the Cambridge police officer, New Black Panthers, appointing incompetent blacks like Holder and Jarrett, "we´re a country of race cowards," Trayvon.
We watch black mayors and black population run
Detroit, Trenton, Baltimore, Camden, Philadelphia,
Chicago into the ground and become as bad as Haiti.
We watch ever more entitlements and Obamaphones handed out to blacks, Affirmative Action promoting
barely litterate incompetents
And our Reward for putting up with all this crap, is WE GET CALLED RACISTS if we don´t like it.
Fine. I admit it. After 60 years of putting up with black victimology, I am now a racist.
Bring on the race war.

So it´s ThoughtCrime to speak the truth.

And btw, the truth as spoken in this article is as "inoffensive" as it could possibly be. No horrific crimes against whites are described or even mentioned. This piece could´ve been inflammatory ... it isn´t.

I agree with #32. After years of being sympathetic to blacks and the discrimination they suffered they have turned me into a racist. 99% of black politicians are on the take and then they still blame whites. Their crime rate is staggering and should be a nationwide scandal if the media did their job.

Sorry. Send me a membership racist card. I am now a charter member.

"Congress shall make no law...abriding the freedom of speech orf of the press..." is apparently an intellectual concept beyond the esteemed Mayor Nutter. I live in Delaware (part of the Philly TV market). Philly is an ungovernable "state of nature" thanks to 60 years (!) of Democrat rule. "Democracy is the theory the common people know what they want and deserve to get it good and hard."

I wonder how the mayor would have reacted if the author had dropped the veneer of caution and didn´t tiptoe his way through the article?

Kudos for Philadelphia Magazine for even publishing this knowing the blowback it was bound to generate.

Wonder if the author has moved his son out of the neighborhood at 19th and Diamond or convinced him to go to somewhere other than Temple University next semester?

Another former Marylander who when I was young could walk in most areas of Baltimore City with no problem. Now you wouldn´t dare or for sure you would be mugged or murdered, especially if you are white.
I´ve also spent a lot of time over the years in Africa. The culture is what it is and these african tribal people, unlike SE Asian tribal ethnics, will not assimilate into western society, nor into an urban city life in Africa. Black Americans are in denial about the fact that their own ancestors in Africa are the ones who sold them into slavery to Arab traders. Our kenyan in the Whitehouse only exacerbates the dreadful problem and I think he enjoys turning America into a banana republic.

Since it´s Philly and one will be bullied anyway, why not stand up and speak "truth to power". The mayor is a racist, go ahead and say it.

I am a Racist. Proud of it, for I have a mind that is able to discern what is good and what is evil. The black community is evil. For they take zero responsibility for their own actions and the consequences of those actions. I am sure there are pockets of good blacks, but the majority of them showed that they are haters of whites and America. They voted overwhelmingly for the dipstick in the WHITE house. I am tired of paying for their lazy butts! And they try to squelch honest debate and disagreement with the black man in the WHITE house. To me that is racist, and far worse than any bad thoughts I have towards them and their ilk.

When the economy goes south, be ware of the inner city thugs to move out to the suburbs to find their food.

I´m "old" now and could never have imagined the state that America is in now. We seem to have completely lost our minds and have driven full speed into a bizarre Twilight Zone.

It seems to be a daily struggle between reality and the fantasies of the so called "liberals". Truth is a victim.

Same situation exists wherever you have long term demonRAT politicians. They take, take, take and then want more. LBJ started all of this in the 60´s and it has continued ever since. I have worked with some wonderful black people over the years, however, they are few and far between. The same can be said of white people but not on such a grand scale. Wake up mayor, listen to the truth and do something about it. Make people, all people, take responsibility for their own situation. Stop relying on the government.

There was a time when Philadelphia had a real mayor. Note the quotes following:

"The streets are safe in Philadelphia, it´s only the people that make them unsafe."

"A conservative is a liberal who got mugged the night before."

--Mayor Frank Rizzo of Philadelphia

NEW YORK -The United Auto Workers has dropped its challenge of a vote to organize workers at Volkswagen´s only U.S. plant that went against the union. The National Labor Relations Board was set to start a hearing Monday on the UAW´s complaint that Republican politicians improperly interfered before the Feb. 14 vote at the Chattanooga, Tenn. plant, which the union lost 712 to 626. But the union issued a statement Monday saying it was dropping its appeal because fighting the election through the NLRB could have dragged on for years.

As it sought to recruit well-heeled investors, an untested and unprofitable Miami company named InnoVida brought aboard a trusted Florida figure in 2007: Jeb Bush, the former governor and the brother of a sitting president. For potential stockholders, the imprimatur of Mr. Bush, who joined InnoVida as a paid consultant and a member of the board of directors, conferred credibility on the young start-up. That credibility did not last long. It turned out that the leaders of InnoVida, a manufacturer of inexpensive building materials, had faked documents, lied about the health of the business and misappropriated $40 million in company

LAS VEGAS — Deep beneath Lake Mead, a 23-foot-tall tunnel-boring machine grinds through stubborn bedrock in a billion-dollar effort to make sure water continues flowing to this thirsty resort city. For six years, the Southern Nevada Water Authority has been building an intake straw below the reservoir´s two existing pipes. Due for completion in fall 2015, critics say it may not provide a long-term solution. An ongoing drought and the Colorado River´s stunted flow have shrunk Lake Mead to its lowest level in generations. The reservoir, which supplies 90% of Las Vegas´ water, is ebbing as though a plug had been

In an op-ed published in the Boston Globe on Easter Sunday and posted on the State Department website, Secretary of State John Kerry recalled his days as an altar boy and pointed out that he is “the first Catholic Secretary of State in 33 years.” Alexander Haig, who served as secretary of state to President Ronald Reagan from January 1981 to July 1982, was also a Catholic. Last month, I traveled to Rome with President Obama, where I was honored to meet His Holiness Pope Francis,” said Kerry. “As an altar boy six decades ago, I never imagined that I

(Video) A car plowed into a Fort Myers church filled with 200 people celebrating Easter on Sunday night, injuring 21. Fort Myers police responded to the chaotic scene shortly before 8 p.m. at the Second Haitian Baptist Church on 3660 Central Ave., Lt. Victor Medico said. When officers arrived, church members were using car jacks to try to lift the vehicle off churchgoers who were trapped underneath. Mary Briggs, spokeswoman for Lee Memorial Health System, said 18 people were taken to Lee County hospitals. Ten of the injured were taken to Lee Memorial Hospital, one of which was discharged late Sunday.

A man was charged with attempted murder and aggravated battery in a Friday shooting that left a 40-year-old man in the Brainerd neighborhood with six gunshot wounds. Deontae C. Jones, 18, was held on $1 million bail after appearing in Cook County bond court Sunday afternoon. Prosecutors said Jones approached a man who was outside his residence on the 9300 block of S. May St., checking to see if his recycling bin was full when Jones approached the man and fired at him. The victim began running away and fell to the ground, said Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Naheda

For Hillary Clinton, having her own baby grandchild to kiss on the campaign trail, could be one of the biggest boosts to her possible presidential election campaign. Although the former Secretary of State and First Lady has not said if she will run in 2016, the arrival of her first grandchild will soften her image, analysts have said. While Chelsea only revealed her pregnancy on Thursday, supporters of her mother have already started cooing over a possible baby in the White House. With the Clintons having a near-royal status in the U.S., the announcement of a new arrival due this fall has sent

That was quite a victory dance President Obama did Thursday while claiming Obamacare is “working” because eight million people have now supposedly signed up for the health care program. He even indulged in some less-than-subtle mockery of Republicans - and by extension the majority of Americans who have disapproved of Obamacare since before it became law. "The repeal debate is and should be over,” Obama said, taking a dig at Republicans who are “going through, you know, the stages of grief … anger and denial and all that stuff …” But a president who is viewed by most Americans as less

In a speech earlier this week, Lisa O. Monaco, President Barack Obama’s assistant for homeland security and counterterrorism, insisted that American parents must be vigilant because their “confrontational” children could be on the verge of becoming terrorists. Monaco’s full, prepared text is available here. She presented the speech, entitled “Countering Violent Extremism and the Power of Community,” at Harvard University’s Kennedy School of Government on April 15. Monaco began her remarks by eloquently describing the lives tragically lost last year during the Boston Marathon bombings. Interestingly, the Harvard grad failed to mention the religion or the motive of brothers Dzhokhar and Tamerlan

As he moves from lobbyists to the golf course, from press conferences to the tanning bed, he remains oblivious to all that is around him. He has power, incredible power, and yet to this day he has no understanding of the election that made it so. Moreover, all around him are astonishing opportunities for him to be an historic figure -- one who could and should be the man who did more than any other single person in turning back the red tide of Obama. It’s all there for Speaker of the House, and yet John Boehner manages to miss

If the Rev. John DeBonville could preach a sermon to lift the souls of churchgoers across America, his message would be simple: Stop dressing so tacky for church. DeBonville has heard about the “come as you are” approach to dressing down for Sunday service, but he says the Sabbath is getting too sloppy. When he scans the pews of churches, DeBonville sees rows of people dressed in their Sunday worst. They saunter into church in baggy shorts, flip-flop sandals, tennis shoes and grubby T-shirts. Some even slide into the pews carrying coffee in plastic foam containers as if they’re going to Starbucks. “It’s like

President Obama asserts that 8 million people have signed up for Obamacare, as though that were something to be proud of. In fact, Obamacare has always been a fiasco from a fiscal perspective–a black hole of subsidies and expanded Medicaid, with largely fictitious mechanisms in place to pay for it. As the number of subsidized participants grows, the disaster gets worse. Charles Blahous explains: Our national discussion…is missing the truly significant story here; what is unfolding before our eyes is a colossal fiscal disaster, poised to haunt legislators and taxpayers for decades to come. It is quite possible that the ACA is
