Why does Philadelphia suck so much?

I was born & raised here (hated it back then). I feel like killing myself every time I visit this city! My Mom lives in Strawberry Mansion, and I'm trying to get her to move out west with me! Would it hurt black people here to clean up & take care of their neighborhoods???!
Update: I never said only the black 'hoods were dirty. That's just the one i'm concerned with. I shouln't have to educate anyone. I recieved the same public school education as everyone else here.
