A lot of discussion in Philly this week about the terrible, deadly fire in West Philly and how the community is responding. It’s probably more complicated than any of us who weren’t directly involved think, but we shouldn’t forget that systematic emergency services disregard for some communities is a real thing, and has been for a long time.
This is the first time (I think?) that a pic of Omar has been on this fun West Philly blog and I think I’m surprised but also maybe it’s weird that it took so long? Also, if you like West Philly you should follow the fun West Philly tumblr that sudama and I do.
