Is Philadelphia a safe place to live??

Statistically, no. But then again, statistics aren't always right. In some ways, Philadelphia is far better than it used to be. South Philadelphia and West Philadelphia used to be much, much worse than they are now. But North Philadelphia and Northeast Philadelphia used to be much better than they are now. Philadelphia is a city that's plagued by a lot of problems. There are a lot of good people there, but there are a lot of skells too. The city has never been run very well, and it's not pretty in a lot of places. But like anywhere else in the country, there are nice parts and parts that are not so nice. Is it as safe as Boston or New York? Not by a longshot. But it's much better than parts of say Baltimore or Washington, D.C., though that really isn't anything to brag about. The fact is that whoever could afford to get out of Philadelphia 30 years ago did, and they all moved out to the suburbs. Those who are there now either stayed because they couldn't afford to move or are recent arrivals from somewhere else. It doesn't have the same community feel that many other cities have, but it's not a war zone either. It depends on where in the city you are, but generally speaking, I'd say it's right around the middle. It's not a safe place but it's not a very dangerous place either.

Depends on what part you live. Center City, South Philly, Northwest Philly, and Northeast Philly are okay. I would avoid North Philly, West Philly, and Southwest Philly

Yes. Conservatives make up lies about blacks. The reason why blacks sometimes do bad things is because they live in fear of conservatives.
They are so mistreated in America.
Blacks work hard.
All the profits that a homeless black man makes, goes to their family so they can eat.
Conservatives have everything given to them, or they just steal it.
