publication of Being White in Philly, [By Robert Huber, Philadelphia Magazine, March 2013] a magazine article thatMayor Michael Nutter doesn't like.
The 2002 cover of the Philadelphia Daily News that set off a racial inquisition against whites for daring to show the color of crime in the City of Brotherly Love

Two of these suspects were quickly turned in. But the arrest of dangerous criminals was quickly overwhelmed by something far more important—the specter of “racism” and “insensitivity.” The airing of “hate facts” could not be tolerated. As the News sheepishly reported on itself:

More than anyone else, SBPDL has documented that black crime in Philadelphia has been a problem centuries in the making (thank you W.E.B. DuBois for your profound book The Philadelphia Negro).
