Are you MAD or NAH ?

June 2, 2020 

What happened in West Philadelphia, and across all inner cities in America the last weekend of May 2020, is the same vision the people of Tulsa, Oklahoma saw 99 years ago May 31, 1921. With emotions high and no answered questions, the people of West Philadelphia and beyond flooded what is known to be Muhamed Ali Way “52nd Street”. What began as a peaceful protest turned into businesses big and small losing what could’ve been a fresh start after a long quarantine season. Protesters broke out into a riot that lit the flyer for some to start looting, destroying, and clearing out businesses. Leaving some business owners no choice but to close their doors. Social media is exposing the rawness of how, essentially, people can act when they are tired of the injustice going on in America. As residents quickly began cleaning up what’s left, the real questions are left on the block. Are you mad about what’s happened in your community? Are you mad at the protesters? Are you mad, or Nah?
