Race In America: Philly Mag's 'Being White In Philly'

Posted: Updated:
PHILADELPHIA -

Well, it's a cover that definitely got our attention, the current issue of Philadelphia Magazine, with the headline, "Being White in Philly."

The article asserts that quote: "In a city that is largely poor and segregated, white people have become afraid to say anything at all about race," for fear of backlash."

Wondering if this was true, we took to the streets of Fairmount to ask you!

And, Tuesday morning on "Good Day" we were talking about the Philadelphia Magazine article with Editor-in-Chief Tom McGrath.

Also joining the discussion was Dr. Charles Gallagher, professor and chair of race and ethnic relations at LaSalle University.
