???......::well, this is quite a revelation as I have never heard of this town in Pennsylvania.

Quite frankly, outside of Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and, perhaps Erie, I didn’t think there were any other areas of the Keystone state safe for negro travel.

 ;D

Come on Strike. While it is Pennsyltucky, Harrisburg is a decent place to live for black folks. Much better than my birth city of Erie.  :shrug:

Harrisburg?  That's straight hood.  Middletown is much better.  My cousin use to be the mayor there. 

The only thing cool about Harrisburg is the parsonage of Wesley Union AME Zion Church.

Harrisburg is not all good. Once you don’t know what you’re talking about. Middletown is a white trash town. Was Mayor Reid your cousin?

  :).......my dear brutha CU. Please accept my apologies, as I did not intend to disparage your home state with my previous comment. I was simply being silly and trying to have some fun. No doubt places like Carlisle, Harrisburg, Altoona, York and others are all lovely communities. And they all have their own unique charms.

About 20 years ago, then 10 yr old Ms. Strike and I drove from Nashville to Syracuse, NY, for our biennial family reunion. Forgotten the exact route I took, but it meant driving through a BROAD swath of the Keystone, mostly traversing communities that you and others collectively call “Pennsyltucky”.  :lol: No doubt, there were several times when a brutha was a tad apprehensive about stopping for gas, but never had a problem the entire trip.

Btw, CU, Wiregrass, y, et al, on the return trip back to Nashville we stopped in Hershey to visit the gift shop at the museum. There was not enough time to visit the theme park, but did rack up on chocolate. That was a pleasant experience as well.  :)

Strike, I appreciate you buying candy and helping my wife earn her bachelors debt free from The Lincoln University. She graduated high school from Milton Hershey School which is the beneficiary of the Hershey Company.  I do agree that you may as well be in Mississippi when traveling through PA. Believe it or not, even Pittsburgh is behind the times. My mom is from Pittsburgh, I have a lot of family there, I lived there, and I am there a few times a year. Pittsburgh is isolated and backwards. You will still see. Jeri curl in Pittsburgh.

One good thing about Harrisburg is that it’s central. Philly is 1.5 hours, Baltimore less than 1.5 hours, DC is 2 and Nzy is less than 3.

He is my cousin.  I'd much rather live in Middletown than Harrisburg.  It's much safer.  And cleaner.

We recognize the cultural conflict that exists and over the past few months we've been accused of allowing content in posts/threads that supposedly violates some advertiser's policies. Those threads weren’t an issue in the past, but for some reason, they are an issue now. And we are being penalized (financially) because of it.
