Dirty west Philly and another home break in.

I feel like african americans in this dirty city need to learn to stop, they only hurt themselves. And then cry when you shoot them and cut there funds.

  • @sirka, Don't get mad because the truth hurts or applies to you. Make a change within your self.

  • I don't understand why people are slamming the post without statements on why. I feel that people like the young lady up top posted and started with the name call not knowing anything about me or the reason why I posted. Also to the people that gave the thumbs up, do you guys live in West Philadelphia? Do you understand this city, or are you people that just protest like everyone else and don't even know why.

Real issue, should we focus on purchases like fire arms instead of higher education.

As I realize that life in west is dangerous, I feel that I should buy a gun just for my safety at home.
