I never said that all people come to complain about Blacks. I have never condoned such violent behavior like the incidents we're speaking of. However, whenever there are individuals who only come for the purpose of venting their resentment towards Blacks, why would I want to have such a discussion about race with them? If the only thing someone brings to the table is resentment, how is that going to make things any better? That is the point I'm trying to drive home.

You continue to call resentment for simple truths about a component of a culture.

The act of people in Philly and other places doing this act we call "wilding" runs opposite of Philadelphia's Greek meaning of "brotherly love", sadly.

That "blame it on white supremacy" comment won't help. What else was I suppose to get out of it?

The city of Philadelphia has alot of issues with crime. Veterans Stadium had a jail inside of it during the late 1990s to deal with violent sports fans. Philadelphia has been making the news for bad reasons. And this isn't anything new. Philadelphia has been having this "wilding" problem since 2009. Part of me keeps asking myself "why Philadelphia"? What is it about Philadelphia?

Philadelphia was named such by William Penn. As a Quaker, Penn wanted his colony to be a place where people would have religious freedom. Hence, "the city of brotherly love".
