Anonymous asked: lol! this is why you're the king of philly blogs. that was brilliant.
Appreciate the kind words, but I’m certainly no king of anything.
I just write about things the way I see them. It’s my opinion—nothing more, nothing less. I don’t mind if people disagree with me, it’s all good by me. I’m just sick of seeing Buzzfeed articles on all my social media with people gushing over how true everything is. It’s not true. Not at all.
When people disrespect the good people of North Philadelphia, talking about how you’ll get shot or mugged just by walking outside, I get really passionate and pissed off. I’ve met so many wonderful and incredible people in North Philly over the years. People who have treated me like gold and give me the same respect I always give them. When some piss-ass who is afraid to leave Temple’s campus like the writer of that Buzzfeed article says stupid things about North Philly, I feel it’s my job to put them in their place. I think of the good people I’ve met, the amazing kids I’ve gotten to work with, and how they are all being classified by a bunch of scared assholes. It makes me sick.
Thanks again for your kind words, and for reading the site.
