n a recent Friday night at a Center City co-working space, in a wide, window-ďŹ lled ofďŹ ce overlooking City Hall, Tayyib Smith— founder/CEO of Little Giant Creative boutique branding agency and the publisher of two.one.ďŹ ve magazine— is holding court with Little Giant cofounder Meegan Denenberg, discussing the interactivity of hip-hop’s hustle.

Education key to not being shocked by shady door-to-door sales reps BY KERITH GABRIEL

“Hip-hop opened doors to give me the experience, network, and conďŹ dence to be an entrepreneur without an academic pedigree, inherited privilege or vested with assistance from family,â€? Smith says. “From its inception, hip-hop culture created its own unique form of entrepreneurship for young people of color, and created hubs of commerce and communication that spread the culture to cities, and eventually boardrooms, around the world.â€? Denenberg offers a smile in agreement. SEE PAGE 7

ori Mitchell thought she made the smart choice for her new Fishtown home. When a young man knocked on her door this summer offering a better rate for her energy by simply asking to see her current PECO bill, she thought nothing of it. At the time, Mitchell and her husband were paying $130 monthly on average. If this young man in the nice polo shirt could lower that, she was all ears. SEE PAGE 6

&ODSLWXSIRU0HDO3DO The new membership-only service launches this week and has partnered with more than 50 area restaurants to offer signature lunches for just $6 per meal. Mary Biggins, who co-founded the popular ClassPass workout membership is one of the brains behind this endeavor which features local spots, including Farmer's Keep, Meltkraft, Cleavers, Bubblefish and Hershel's East Side Deli. Essentially, if GrubHub and Seamless had a baby, MealPal would be their affordable cute, little bastard stepson.

We got Rondoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d

N

ot sure if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s selflessness or arrogance, but during last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stop in Philadelphia for the NBAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chicago Bulls, its star player, guard Rajon Rondo made an appearance at the Woodstock Family Center in North Philadelphia to hand out meals to needy families. However, Rondoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;peopleâ&#x20AC;? wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow WFC or Resources for Human Development (the Philly-based nonprofit that organized the event) to post any photos. But, shockingly, they gave permission for the Bulls to send out a photo, as evidenced by this tweet sent out on Nov. 22. Which leads us to ask... Why would you want control the message for a charitable event? Sounds like Rondoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;peopleâ&#x20AC;? could use a PR 101 refresher.

You liberal. left wing, slimy Jews make me sick, controlling the media and this racist rag. You sit behind your desk in cognito, put a dumb Goyim in charge to take the heat and keep stirring the pot. Your paper is so one sided pro Democratic, you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let a Republican have their say. Just by the LARGE HEADLINE Hillary won South Philly instead of Tromp wins big showed your true colors, all you scumballs hide behind gentile names when you own the rotten review and all of the USA. Your all running scared because you cannot control Trump like you did this Jew controlled moron puppet in the white house the last eight years. So screw Stein, Lerner, Albright, Yellen, Ginsburg and the hundreds of other corrupt Goyim hating Yentas, running America. I just hope one day the stupid, confused, Jew believing Americans ďŹ nally wise up to your trechary and stop you ďŹ&#x201A;at. BTW if the Review is a so called South Philly paper, why did you move to safe, Jewland called Cherry Hill rotten hypocrits, now print this is you liberal rag, and tell that dsgrace [SPR columnist Tom] Cardella to keep his dirty reviews to himself dumb shit.â&#x20AC;?

Scammed From Page 1: â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was super friendly at ďŹ rst, and was just like, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Hey can we see your electric bill?â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So I provided him my energy bill and he said, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Oh, I see you use PECO right now, but you know you can go to a competitor and lock in a lower rate each year? PECOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rate ďŹ&#x201A;uctuates, but we can lock you into a lower rate for each year.â&#x20AC;? The man, Mitchell recalled, claimed his company, Canadian-based SFE Energy, was a â&#x20AC;&#x153;parentâ&#x20AC;? company of PECO. In fact, SFE is one of the more than 70 competitive generation suppliers licensed by the Pennsylvania Public Utility Commission to sell electricity. PECO, which has no corporate relationship to the companies, serves as the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s energy provider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what a low rate is or a high rate is,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He just said he would lock me into a low rate for three years, which I thought was great.â&#x20AC;? Looking back, there were other red ďŹ&#x201A;ags. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He made me call his company and give them all my information,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell said of the salesperson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He literally took my phone, dialed the number and had me talk to [a representative], claiming that this was all part of the process. I talked to someone at his company, who signed me up, then he gave me a brochure and a copy of the contract, telling me that I can cancel in 10 days. It was just weird, I would ask questions and he would just beat around the bush and not really answer them, but I guess [Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m at fault too, because] I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know the right questions to ask.â&#x20AC;? In just three days, Mitchell began to see new, questionable fees on her billâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;fees she never had before joining SFE. In copies of her August bill supplied to PW, Mitchell owed $281.44, more than she claims sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d ever been charged for energy service. She also received a subsequent bill from SFE for $30.42 citing distribution, generation and transmission charges; and on three separate occasions in just one week, her bank account was tapped for payment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I did the research and realized that this was not legit, and that I wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t saving, and I canceled the contract,â&#x20AC;? Mitchell continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I still used three days [of service] so I was charged for those couple of days I had themâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when that second bill claiming all those generation charges showed up.â&#x20AC;? What Mitchell and many other residents fall victim to is a practice known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;slamming,â&#x20AC;? where a fast-talking

salesperson entices customers to sign potentially costly deals. While base rates are lower, other service charges add to the cost that can leave customers worse off than when they started. Though the scam has been widely reported, thousands in the Philadelphia region fall prey to it each year. With more and more companies competing for energy dollars, teams of door-todoor salesmen are banging on the doors of innocent victims, pitching deals that may cost them hundreds or thousands of dollars. PECO acknowledges itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a problem, but it says its customers are partly to blame. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t necessarily say that customers that have a supplier coming to their door are being scammed as much as itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more of being duped into a situation where theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just not educated about what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re getting themselves into,â&#x20AC;? said PECO spokesperson Ben Armstrong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so important for every customer in our region to really understand the terms of an agreement before they sign anything. There should be no reason anyone should commit to any sort of contract in 15 minutes, unless they have all of the options in front of them and decide which one is best.â&#x20AC;? Though not conďŹ rmed, there are also claims that the initial ask to see a potential customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill is so that even if the person refuses to sign up for service, the personal information obtained gets sold to other marketing ďŹ rms, ensuring another avenue for income. However, Jeff Donnelly, director of regulatory affairs and compliance from SFE Energy told PW that third-party marketing isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the case with SFE. Their ask is simply to see if the customer is working with another provider. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Typically, during our training pro-

After claiming her bill went up $150 after switching to her new energy supplier, Fishtown resident Tori Mitchell also received a $30 bill for ancillary fees and services.

cess, we asked the sales rep to verify [via the customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bill] and ensure that there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t another retail supplier on the bill,â&#x20AC;? Donnelly said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the customer to sign a contract with us and incur cancellation fees with another supplier.â&#x20AC;? Donnelly noted that SFE contracts clearly state in language required by the PUC that SFE isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afďŹ liated with utility companies. He said that all sales reps must present identiďŹ cation which includes, clothing, badge and business cards that shows they are from SFE. Finally, he claimed that the actions of a few salesmen does not reďŹ&#x201A;ect SFEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business practices or training methods, and that customers should always know that they are locking in a â&#x20AC;&#x153;ďŹ xed rate for a ďŹ xed term,â&#x20AC;? and that â&#x20AC;&#x153;savings are not guaranteed.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our compliance process requires that the call to the veriďŹ cation center happens on the customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phone,â&#x20AC;? Donnelly said of SFEâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;independent third-party veriďŹ cation call.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have compliance processes in place to ensure that the call is being conducted from the customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phone and at the beginning of the call, the customer is asked if they wish for the [in-home] sales rep to stay or leaveâ&#x20AC;Ś We have a zero tolerance policy for representatives to misrepresent themselves as being utility

or afďŹ liated with the utility. [Our representatives] are certiďŹ ed and trained in accordance with the public utilities commission.â&#x20AC;? However, while the suppliers sitting in corporate ofďŹ ces preach compliance from a state regulatory standpoint, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s their commission-based foot soldiers that will say or do anything to get inside a home. There are hotlines in place to report these sales representatives within the PUC, but most energy companies like SFE donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have their own hotline. Joseph Fonash, a licensed Realtor with Fishtown real estate broker Keller Williams told PW that while legitimate, these types of services really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t serve to the beneďŹ t of residential consumers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[Actually], itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s commercial buildings that use brokers and share the savings as a fee, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much in savings for a residential home,â&#x20AC;? wrote Fonash. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The door-to-door salespeople are doing a legitimate job, but what they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t telling you and some themselves donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know is that there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t much to beneďŹ t from as a residential consumer.â&#x20AC;? @SPRTSWTR

Hip Hop U.

3+,//<:((./<&20

>>From page 1: Now theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re putting those words to action, in the form of the Institute of Hip-Hop Entrepreneurship (IHHE). The idea is to bring their wealth of personal experiences, business acumen and overall mentorship to local hip-hop wannabes. A winner of the 2016 John S. and James L. Knight Foundation Knight Cities Challenge, IHHE is a ninemonth, tuition-free course that presents the challenges of building an independent business. There are no grades or deďŹ ned goals in the program, but successful students get a foot in the door of whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s always been a competitive world. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s up to them to make an impression. Out of more than 300 hopefuls who applied last spring, a collection of 24 students aged 18-38 of all races and genders from all parts of the city made the cut. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only similarity amongst them is that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re underrepresented in the current ecosystem,â&#x20AC;? says Smith. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The American paradigm of success by a certain age or from a single race or sexual orientation is a lie.â&#x20AC;? While a handful of IHHE's initial class are artists, others such as Alonzo Goodman, a Philly transplant by way of New Orleans, and North Philly resident Jenneen Harris believed their futures lie in hip-hop culture as a business. Goodman, is focusing on brand management while Harris hopes to start a young men's clothing line based on her picky, yet stylish nine-year-old son's sartorial outlook. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think they picked me because my energy is always positive and I'm dedicated to my son," says Harris,

37, with a smile. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m learning that if I stay focused on my dreams and goalsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;along with networking with the right peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;that my dreams will come true. [Smith and Denenberg] stress that networking is crucial; that when you have access or ears available to you, take hold and never let go. If you don't have that access, bust down doors to get it.â&#x20AC;? As for Goodman, he claims heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s learned a great deal from local hip-hop artist Bahamadia, an instructor with the progam and believes that the IHHE was made for him. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I understand IHHE will be difďŹ cult. However after the ďŹ rst weekend I noticed I am surrounded by an amazing group of individuals who are working towards their future as well. The facilitators and speakers are phenomenal, picking your brains and still having a young vibe that connects with all of the students.â&#x20AC;? Goodman believes that at the end of nine months he'll have a solid foundation on how to build and maintain a business plan, calling it â&#x20AC;&#x153;knowledge I would never receive elsewhere.â&#x20AC;? That is key to IHHE, the ability to allow students to think on their feet and apply and adapt hip-hopâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s life lessons to whatever they wish. Annie Chiu-McCabe, an independent consultant working with Smith and Denenberg, said their program may be â&#x20AC;&#x153;unconventionalâ&#x20AC;? but it students can make it work if they follow through. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re used to measuring success with metrics and assignments to show growth, something far more structured,â&#x20AC;? she said of other classroom programs.. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Here at IHHE, we trust the studentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; instincts as to what they are gathering, learning and are running withâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;what they can apply to their lives now as well as going forward.â&#x20AC;?

Fanteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Inferno Italian Market momand-pop specializes in all things delicious. BY Lance Haver

3+,//<:((./<&20

O

ver the course of your lifetime, you will probably cook somewhere around 18,000 mealsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even if you eat out once or twice a week. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it be worth your time to ďŹ nd a way to enjoy cooking? Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ nding the right knife, pan or kitchen gadget make it easier for you to enjoy what youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be doing for a good part of your life anyway? If the answer is yes, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth a trip to Fanteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kitchen Shop (1006 S. Ninth St.) in the historic Italian Market. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll pass through the same aisles that famed chefs Julia Child and Emeril Lagasse once walked while gazing upon almost everything you could ever want to prepare a great meal. We visited with co-owner and manager Mariella Esposito to get the dish on what Fanteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;which has been in the community for over a centuryâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is all about. What does Fanteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sell? Fanteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sells cookware, but more so, a huge amount of baking items, coffee beans and coffee makers. Anything to do with coffees and teas, cutlery and a ton of gadgets for the kitchen. But, most importantly, we sell expertise and help. Everybody who works here loves to cook; and if you love to cook, you naturally love to explain it to anyone who asks.



Is there anything special you like to sell? I grew up in Italy and cooking was always a big part of my life. My grandmother taught me how to make pasta. My favorite items to sell are the ones that deal with making pasta. When someone comes in and says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m thinking of learning how to make pasta,â&#x20AC;? thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my cue to let loose. One that is the most practicalâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if you like to make fresh ravioliâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;is a ravioli press. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so simple, yet so efďŹ cient, and you can make ravioli in no time at all. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of my favorite things to sell. If

you have kids, deďŹ nitely, deďŹ nitely teach them how to make pasta. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a family thing that they will grow up loving. Is there anything someone should know before they shop at your store? Our store has been here for so many years, since 1906. We have a huge selection of items. What we have done over the years is make it so we have a selection from inexpensive to very expensive and anywhere in between... never feel uncomfortable talking to anyone here [customer service and education] is one of the things that we love to do. Is there anything the city can do to help your store? Taxes are killing us; it would be nice if something could be done about that. But more than that, the city really needs to be as involved as possible in what is happening in the Italian Market; to support us, to be there, we are an institution, there is nothing like this in America. It should be kept alive. Is there anything near Fanteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that people should visit? There is a lot in the Italian Market, so you have to take your time. You have the famous places like Di Bruno [Brothers], Tallutoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Espositoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. Italians started the market, but every wave of immigrants has found work here. The latest wave are Mexicans, which thank God they are here otherwise a lot of the stands and stores would be empty. So I would say explore go look, everyone has something different to offer. There is a uniqueness to this area, and the places to see around here are oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s that you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ďŹ nd anywhere else. Â&#x201E; Lance Haver is the director of civic engagement for Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s City Council and served as Philadelphiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s consumer affairs for more than 10 years. His routine column in PW highlights the independent small businesses that add to the quality of life here in Philadelphia.

A

beer in front of a ďŹ re pit: Crisp air, leaves rustle in the wind, embers glow and the bottle is ice cold. Take a seat... The ďŹ&#x201A;ames ďŹ&#x201A;icker and the smoke shifts its direction. The world is quiet. You could be deep in the woods, in a suburban backyard or on a rooftop deck above a city streetâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your moment, you decide. The ďŹ re is orange, then deep red, then white hot. You take a sip and feel the warmth on your outstretched legs. Tonight, there is no game on TV, no crying kids, no barroom din. There is no conversation, no music, no laughter. There is just a ďŹ re and a beer. And your own thoughts. Social norms say that alcohol is to be consumed as part of another activity, in the company of others. Its enjoyment hinges on sharing and bonding: Happy hour and tailgating and cocktail parties and... hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s to good friends! Drinking alone? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s completely abnormal, a classic sign of alcoholism or depression, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? And, yet, from time to time, everybody needs a moment like this, to get lost in thought with nothing more than a ďŹ re and a beer. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect antidote to a bad day at the ofďŹ ce or a season of political madness. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inexpensive. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s non-addictive. You probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t burn down your deck. Do use a ďŹ re-starter. Simplicity is important, so donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get bogged down with collecting twigs and kindling.

Grab a package of DuraďŹ&#x201A;ame Quick Start from your hardware store. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use a fake ďŹ re log. Its ďŹ&#x201A;ame is dull and unnatural and predictable; the blaze from a dry piece of oak is a mystery that dances and crackles with a random ebb and ďŹ&#x201A;ow. A bundle of real wood from the Acme is good for three or four ďŹ res. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t build a huge bonďŹ re. This ďŹ&#x201A;ame is for you, not the entire neighborhood. A couple logs should be good for an hour or two. Do use an ember screen, so you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t torch your neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roof. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wait till it gets warm. The experience is enhanced by bracing cold air, even better if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s snowing. Bring a blanket, but youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be peeling it off once the ďŹ re is roaring. Do wear gloves, because that can of beer will freeze your hands. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring your smart phone. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a distraction. And donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t listen to music, either. In silence before a glimmering ďŹ re, your thoughts will wander someplace good. Do drink a good beer. You could drink your favorite industrial lager and be perfectly satisďŹ ed. But the experience will be enhanced if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a beer with a complexity of aroma and ďŹ&#x201A;avor worthy of contemplation. Sip, savor and enjoy the moment. Hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a few ďŹ re-worthy brews: Aecht Schlenkerla Rauchbier Märzen (Bamberg, Germany), made with malt smoked over a beechwood ďŹ re. There are many other smoked beers, all of which are judged against this outstanding lager. Carton Epitome (Atlantic High-

TASTINGS SARAH GREY

Food Fight Angry pro-Trump Twitter mob still targeting Mount Airy diner. A week later, Weinstein says, staff was surprised to see the customer return to the diner during the serverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s shift. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She [the customer] got up to go to the bathroom, while the server was in a staff area,â&#x20AC;? recalled Weinstein. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She came up behind the server and stood uncomfortably close, and when the server turned around she bumped into her.â&#x20AC;? The customerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s version, told to 6ABC, differs: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get up from the table and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s standing in the hallway, and she backs into me and then, like, checks me.â&#x20AC;? The customer then raised her voice, shouting that the server had physically assaulted her, and left the diner. She emailed Weinstein later that day, who says he replied that â&#x20AC;&#x153;whatever happened, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very sorry.â&#x20AC;? Still Weinstein said he was skeptical: â&#x20AC;&#x153;It just felt like a setup.â&#x20AC;? What happened next turned a minor altercation into an international campaign of harassment. The angry customer happened to be a friend of Jack Posobiec (@JackPosobiec), the special projects director with â&#x20AC;&#x153;Citizens for Trump.â&#x20AC;? Posobiec then tweeted to a throng of more than 53k followers that the server had â&#x20AC;&#x153;beat upâ&#x20AC;? the Trump supporter. He then went live for 10 minutes on the social network Periscope, claiming that the server had been â&#x20AC;&#x153;bodychecked,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;physically assaultedâ&#x20AC;? and screamed at the woman. His broadcast included the dinerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s phone number and address and encouraged viewers to call the diner. The tweets went viral with the hashtag #AbortionDiner, which Posobiec used as a charge that Weinstein promotes abortion. Weinstein said he ďŹ nds bafďŹ&#x201A;ing that it had any is-

sue on the bearing. Posobiec did not respond to requests for comment. Needless to say, Posobiecâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s followers responded en masse. The diner received thousands of calls and had to disconnect its phone line. Emails, Facebook messages, and negative reviews on Yelp, Google, TripAdvisor and elsewhere poured in. Though Posobiec speciďŹ cally asked viewers to ask only â&#x20AC;&#x153;if using violence is okay to express political beliefs,â&#x20AC;? his followers went further, with several threatening to burn down the diner, bring guns inside, or use violence against staff members. Weinstein even said people contacted the health department alleging code violations. Weinstein, who is Jewish, says that he was horriďŹ ed not only by the scale of the backlash but by the anti-Semitic and anti-African-American content of many of the messages he received. They came from all across the country, with some arriving from as far away as Switzerland. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They used racial slurs against the server (who is African American), religious slurs against me, really unspeakable things,â&#x20AC;? said Weinstein. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But not a single person has come in here to confront me face-to-face. They only say these things when they can hide behind phones and computers.â&#x20AC;? While online the hate and anger has been prevalent, Weinstein says the in-person response has been one of support, with regular customers and Mount Airy residents bringing friends to the diner to eat and show their support. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how many friends you have until something like this hap-

pens,â&#x20AC;? Weinstein added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Customers have left extra-generous tips, sent ďŹ&#x201A;owers, purchased gift cards and given them to staff members, and written positive reviews to counteract the negativity on dining and travel sites. Weinstein, who is planning to open a new location in West Philly this spring, says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grateful for the support. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no secret that Internet rage was a factor in propelling Trumpâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s candidacy. Nor is it uncommon for rightwing trolls to doxx, or release personal information about, people with whom they disagreeâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;particularly women and people of color. The phenomenon, which has arisen in the last decade, is new enough that the laws have not yet evolved to address it adequately, but old enough that feminists, anti-racists, and other left-wing writers know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to face a huge wave of online hate when they publish their opinions. In this case, the target isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t someone who published an opinion onlineâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;it is a worker who happened to lose her temper for a moment (and was disciplined for doing so); it is her employer who is responsible for the livelihood of dozens of other employees; and it is a business that is a popular institution in a thoroughly diverse neighborhood. Even more notably, this particular Twitter mob didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t arise simply from some dark corner of 4chan; it was touched off by, and organized in favor of, a man who has just been elected president of the United States. Make America Great Again? Hell, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s looking like we canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even make America breakfast again. TWITTER: @GREYEDITING

D

iners arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just great places for an affordable bite to eat. SpeciďŹ cally here in Philadelphia, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve long been places for community members and politicians of all stripes to gather, talk and debate, with a civil tongue. But the 2016 presidential election may be changing that, judging by the ďŹ restorm that has erupted at the Trolley Car Diner in Mount Airy. A serverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comment to a supporter of President-elect Donald Trump has fueled racist and anti-Semitic harassmentâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;an episode that has potentially disturbing implications for free speech in the era of Trump. It all began the morning after the election, when emotions were running high. A woman, who declined to be named came to the Trolley Car for breakfast wearing the iconic red proTrump â&#x20AC;&#x153;Make America Great Againâ&#x20AC;? hat. A longtime server at the diner, who also declined to be named, made a comment to the customer. Here, the accounts diverge: Ken Weinstein, a Mount Airy resident who has owned the Trolley Car Diner for 16 years, and others who were present maintain that the server said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Good thing youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not in my section.â&#x20AC;? The customer maintains that the server called her â&#x20AC;&#x153;ignorantâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;disgusting.â&#x20AC;? All agree that the customer then complained to the manager, who apologized on behalf of the server; and just 10 minutes later, left. â&#x20AC;&#x153;[The serverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s] comment was absolutely inappropriate,â&#x20AC;? Weinstein admits. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We addressed it with her on a scale that we felt was appropriate. She knew it was wrong. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a strong person, and she feels really bad.â&#x20AC;?

Until a few weeks ago, I would have said that neo-Nazis sieg-heiling around Washington, D.C., was unacceptable and any elected ofďŹ cial or pundit who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t immediately condemn neo-Nazis would be ďŹ nished politically and professionally. But it turns out that neo-Nazism is just another example of IOIYARâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s okay if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a Republicanâ&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x201D;and relativism reigns. In other words: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Unacceptableâ&#x20AC;? is a relative concept, FWTF, not an objective one. That said, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re being unreasonable: Fiddling with your dick in every room of the house is inconsiderate and childish. It sounds like youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re doing a good job of socializing your boyfriendâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;better late than neverâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;and I would encourage you to keep it up. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a straight man in a mostly healthy marriage. Our sex life is average, which I understand is better than some people can hope for. I felt comfortable admitting to my wife a few weeks ago that I would like more blowjobs. She in turn felt comfortable admitting to me that she would prefer if I showered more often. So we made a deal: I would shower every day and she would blow me twice a month. But the ďŹ rst month came and went with no blowjobs in

Your wife doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t wanna suck your cock, BLOWS, squeaky clean or stinky cheese. I would recommend outsourcing non-birthday blowjobsâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;if your wife is okay with that, BLOWS, which she wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be. I am a queer trans woman in my mid20s, and I am in a monogamous relationship with a queer cis woman. We have been dating for about three months now. We have had an absolutely amazing sex life since day one, except for one caveat: She has never in her life had an orgasm. For most of the time she has been sexually active, she has felt ambivalent about getting off. It has only been in the past month that she has started feeling a â&#x20AC;&#x153;sexual awakening,â&#x20AC;? as she calls it. We have been making progress, but she has been having issues with getting caught up in her head when I am pleasuring her. We know there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to be a quick ďŹ x, but what do we do about this? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Confused And Nervous Truly Canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t Overcome Much Exasperation Pot. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m a woman with a small build who has never had children. During sex, my current partner frequently says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Squeeze your pussy,â&#x20AC;? as in he expects me to do Kegel exercises during sex (and hold it), which I will not do because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not pleasurable for me. He doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the biggest or the smallest dick I have ever had, and I have never had this comment before. I have actually been told many times how â&#x20AC;&#x153;good and tightâ&#x20AC;? I feel. We both enjoy anal, so we tried that. Same request: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Squeeze.â&#x20AC;? I have no abnormalities. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure if there is a work-around for this, other than doing Kegels every minute of my life.

y boyfriend of almost two years is wonderful, and we have had very few issues. But there is one thing that has almost been a deal breaker. He ďŹ ddles with his penis almost constantlyâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;in front of me and in front of our roommates. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve confronted him about it a number of times. He said he should be able to ďŹ ddle with his dick in every room of the house if he wants to and he should feel comfortable doing so. I told him that he is being â&#x20AC;&#x153;comfortableâ&#x20AC;? at the expense of the comfort of those around him. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had a number of confrontations about this, and he does it a lot less, but he still does it. Is this behavior unacceptable or am I being unreasonable? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Frustrated With The Fiddling

SAVAGE LOVE:

You have two options: You can tell your current sex partner you arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t going to â&#x20AC;&#x153;squeezeâ&#x20AC;? his dick with your pussy or your ass, as the sensation isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pleasurable for you, or can you lie to him. Tell him youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re squeezing your pussy/assâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re squeezing so hardâ&#x20AC;&#x201D; without actually squeezing your pussy/ ass. Odds are good heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll notice a difference even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not doing anything differently, SPAR, so great is the power of suggestion. Â&#x201E;
