South Philadelphia resident Donald Whitfield caught on video calling his gay neighbor a “faggot.”

If you haven’t been to South Philadelphia since the 1990s, a lot has changed.

Yes, there are all sorts of trendy bars serving fancy beers, and you can get award-winning Norwegian and French fare on the same strip where you’ll still find old-school linguini and meatballs.
