I'm going to add to what you're saying as I live in Philly. Here are some facts:
and OP, this is for you, I'm going to play devils advocate here. I'd love to hear your response.
My grandparents used to live in Darby, Pa and would go to Chester, Pa at night for dancing and drinks with friends back in the 50's before those
areas became predominately black. I hate to say it, but since the blacks moved in, both of those towns are torn to pieces with trash all over the
streets and beautiful Victorian houses, and most newer houses, are destroyed with wood over the windows. A beautiful cemetery in Darby has gang signs
and graffiti on headstones with some kicked over and the crime rates are through the roof.
It does not cost money to keep your town and cities clean and nice. It doesn't cost money to treat others with respect.
Not but a few years ago a white Widener University student was walking a bit off campus and was robbed and murdered for the less than $10 is in pocket
by a black and left for dead on the sidewalk. You didn't hear that make national news and there were no riots.
Arrest in Widener student's death One suspect is held as
police search for the man they think pulled the trigger.
Furthermore, blacks were playing the "knockout game" and knocking old white people out left and right in Philly this past summer. I bet you didn't
hear that in the national news and when they were caught, they weren't charged with hate crimes.

Another instance happened at temple where a group of black teens almost killed a white girl over no reason. Hitting her in the face with a brick

With Brick Wants to Return to Classes
These are just a few of the crimes committed against whites that happen in Philadelphia and the surrounding suburbs every day. I could post about a
few hundred more but I think I've proved my point. It's getting to the point where I'm seriously considering get my L2C because I don't want to
end up a victim, and that's becoming the mentality in and around this area.
The crimes against whites are so brutal and they're thought out, these are not just occasions where a black had to defend themselves and killed a
white person. They're planned attacks. They never make the national news and when the news speaks of the crimes, if the culprit is black, they never
say it, but when the culprit is white and does a crime against a black it's always "A white male has assaulted 2 black males . . blah blah blah"
Not one of these instances did any white burn down a store, rob anyone or cause a mass riot and destroy their own towns.
This gentleman in your OP is doing nothing but dividing the races and he is race baiting. I don't care what you say or how you want to spin it. The
crimes against whites are just as bad, even worse, but they never make the news. So quit it with your idea that blacks are the victims in all this.
I'm going to play devil's advocate here, and I am a Chicago girl, born and raised until college.
I cannot fully tell you why your blacks in Philly behave the way they do unless they are lashing out from indoctrinated hatred and racial issues from
the past. I can tell you from growing up in Chicago, it is the most segregated and discriminative place in the WORLD. 3 Presidents from Aparthied
South Africa have credited Richard J. Daley (Daley I) for the template that helped them reach advanced racism and apartheid practice. John Forster
Square torture techniques were based on the CPD techniques of the 60s against its black population. We have Black, White, MExican, and a small Asian
population. Only 2 hoods survived Puerto Rican, and Humbolt Park is up in arms right now over forced gentrification to push them out. The other is
the Avenues bordering Highland, IN. Our crime in Chicago is based on three factors. One black family moves into a all white neighborhood, even to
this day, and EVERY WHITE PERSON MOVES OUT!!!! That leaves the property values dropped down to crap; the city begins to devalue it and they what do
they do, they stop having street cleaning, regular trash pickup. They stop fixing the streets. They ticket, arrest, and tax anyone who attempts to
keep their house groomed. My grandmother got a 5K fine for replacing a 40 year gate with a higher wooden fence because she didn't get permission,
and her grandkids, US, put it up for her on her property within the existing gate borders (and we tore the old gate down and disposed of it). In
Chicago, the citizens are taxed for everything, even a personal garden can get a person a hefty fine.
In Chicago crime is not reported in White Neighborhoods. I lived in a gentrified Wrigleyville and before I moved my block was empty. See white
flight. Crime there amongst the whites was DAILY, more than I had ever seen nor endured growing up in gangland south side. There was a serial rapist
snatching white women jogging at 3am that the police never investigated because he was white. Now as far as black on white crimes, they did exist,
and like Philly, were never reported on mainstream news. In Chicago, that is really few and far between. Most whites never cross 12th street going
south, or halsted going west. Those caught in areas like Uptown, Buena Park, Bucktown are there because they got caught in the housing crash and
can't get out. Whites in Uptown set up home camera around Wilson area apts and the police said it was inadmissible because its illegal to record
without notifying the person of it.
Now, unlike Philly, our whites think that NOTHING can happen to them because they pay 2300 a month for a 2 flat apt that got renamed a condo. Their
attitudes towards blacks are heinous, so much so that when something does happen no one bats an eye. It's an oh well moment. Our crimes against
whites have mostly been Mexicans killing them. There was a low brow incident when I lived there, 3 whites executed back of the head in their
apartment by illegals. Mexicans growing pot in the Forest Preserve, killing white joggers passing by. Will try and find link if u need to see it.
Things like THAT happen all the time versus our black folks targeting them.
The thought behind blacks burning their own neighborhoods was to make a point, to force the city to rebuild their area equal to the gentrified hoods.
It wasn't about destroying their own. At least in Chicago. Our riots have ALWAYS been precipitated by a law enforcement populous that hates
anything not WHITE MALE. And its always been that way. I'm not doubting the guy's motivations. I said "how I saw it". I was trying to look
past the obvious notions of race. I'm not spinning it any way whatsoever. I wanted a discussion on the numbness of violence. What he did...I saw
that EVERY DAY IN CHICAGO. That can make a person numb. My nephew saw the 6 yr old get shot in her eye, local news story, in front of my peeps
building and he walked over her; proceeded to get his hair cut. It can make you numb, so forgive me for looking at it with drier eyes.
