Let me tell you: The brothers and sisters are running this city! Oh yes, running it! Don’t let nobody fool you; we are in charge of the City of Brotherly Love. We are in charge!” 

These words were spoken by Philadelphia mayor John Street in 2002. 

Can you imagine a white mayor of Philly speaking in a public forum about how the “white folks are running this town”

Philly has become a racially polarized town, no matter what the politically correct folks at the local Chamber of Commerce try to sell you. 39% white, 38% black as it’s twin racial majorities. 

In the current local politically ultra-liberal climate, take it from a lifelong resident and city employee, thus someone who can’t leave without losing their job: Philadelphia – a nice place to visit, but you wouldn’t want to live here.

  1. Matt, I\’m surprised at the percentages; in all honesty, I thought there were far more black people then white.

  2. Yes, he really said that in just that exact context in a speech in front of the local chapter of the NAACP back in 2002. Just punch the wording into your web browser, and related articles will come up. What a piece of garbage. No wonder this city is going to hell in a hurry over the past couple decades. First Bad Wilson Goode, then Fast Eddie Rendell, now this guy. Unbelievable. But it\’s what the majority in this town, the LIBS, want, so I hope they are enjoying it. I do my best everyday in spite.
