Port Richmond removing hundreds of white supremacist stickers

Hundreds of stickers promoting white supremacist organizations popped up in Port Richmond over the weekend, sparking discussion — and action.

  • Neighbors have started pulling down the messages, which align with a coordinated push by White Lives Matter Pennsylvania, Jordan Levy reports. But the messaging isn’t lasting in the River Wards.

The neighborhood has a “reputation” for this kind of ideology, one resident said, but the area is evolving, and “we’re not going to sit down and take it.”
