Mayor Calls For Probe After 'Being White In Philly' Article...

The Story That Started It All...
***

After reading the story first I read the article on the mayor.
WOW! What a difference.
I have a few stories I could tell circa 1970 when I lived in DC's NW getto near 17th & U streets with Charlene (next door to a small black panthers store front). The area had a lot of boarded up buildings & burned out ones and had it's own "Watts riot" a summer before I got there in October 1968.  At that time I suggested we get together with this black doctor she knew for "encounter" groups of mixed races & talk things out.  How naive the doctor relayed - "you'll get eaten alive!".

Mark de LA says
Apparently the author was off the Democrat message in the article.
source: ...

Huber told the packed auditorium of about 200 people that the purpose of the article was to explore "how white people relate to black people in the inner city, or don't relate to them."

In his piece, Huber wrote: "We need to bridge the conversational divide so that there are no longer two private dialogues in Philadelphia - white people talking to other whites, and black people to blacks - but a city in which it is OK to speak openly about race."

The story, however, was criticized as dwelling on negative experiences that whites had with blacks that often fit into racial stereotypes.

In a scathing letter, Mayor Nutter last week requested that the Philadelphia Human Relations Commission consider whether the magazine and Huber deserved to be rebuked for the article.

Nutter said Huber ignored positive anecdotes "to feed his own misguided perception" that African Americans are "lazy, shiftless, irresponsible, and largely criminal."


... truth isn't even a consideration in all of this.
