When I was 15 I missed the A local bus trying to get home back in the day when the A bus took you downtown & North Philly, that was a long time ago the 32 does that route now and back then the buses stopped running at 2 AM, being from NC I tried to walk the route by foot trying to get home, two Italian cops stopped me & because of my southern accent one of them tried to intimidate & threaten me because I was walking in a all white neighborhood, that was the first time I was called a Nigger by a white person, they took to the station & held me until my pops came and got me, mind you I’m talking about the fucking early seventies so I’m saying all that to say this shit is not new in this city. 😈

I grew up in Philly during the 60s and 70s and this is nothing new. This goes back to the days of racist Frank Rizzo where black people were being terrorized by the police. Police were exposed a few years ago for a racist website called Domelights where they were spewing racist hatred against black citizens and even their fellow black cops. This is the city that brunt down a entire black city block to murder 11 black men women and children. Philadelphia is a perfect example of how you don’t have to go to the deep south to experience hardcore racism from the police.

@John Lindsay. Punctuation marks or not it doesn’t make his story any less compelling or difficult to read. You didn’t even bother to comment about the story. SMH

giving these klansmen desk jobs with pay is a further insult. They should be REMOVED from DUTY WITHOUT pay pending an investigation. THAT will stop them when their MONEY is affected. Right now, all they get is a paid vacation or the ability to sit at a desk and still earn money. THIS IS NOT A DETERRENT!

When was America Great? .. Was it when the confederate got their asses handed to them by the Union army…or when the land was stolen from the Native Americans.. The barbaric ,caveman mentalities are in the Caucasian blood.. They say all blacks the same these mentalities have no morels or sympathy. They want to rule and they will kill and destroy to get what they want. Prejudice , hate will always be in the here in the USA… Hate is taught by parents babys not born with hate in their hearts…America will never be Great until people stop Hating..

I think all African decendents should read the “Isis Papers: Keys to the Colors” by Dr. Frances Cress Welsing. That book contains a great perspective on the phenomenon of the basis of racism and white supremacy. I believe it has the ability to redirect how the Black man will approach the nature of living in this country.
