Philadelphia is a blight on America,an embarrasment to all decent God fearing people.Racism is alive and well,they just go about it in a different way,poor housing poor wages,poor people. Dust and flies everywhere.

It is you again Yvonne. Obviously you are racist as well. I sense in your comments that you hate life, yourself. I do not know what kind of life you lead but you need help. And I hope you know that when you say God fearing people, you should consider first how that God fearing values were instilled in slaves. This was forced upon slaves and they were forced away from their homes. You should consider studiying history and quit backlashing at Philadelphia because I am from there and I am proud of where I come from. We are all not poor, ignorant and lack of morals as you have judged. Good luck in finding yourself and hope you will learn to accept who you are.

I dont think it fair to indict a whole town for what a bunch of ignorant sociopaths did forty years ago.
A black man is about to be elected President and I notice the Philadelphia Topix forum seems to be free of some of the mindless paranoid Obama bashing you see in many of the other cities forums.
I would say Philadelphia has moved on into the 21st century admirably.
