Why Do You Think They Call it UPPER Chi?
It seems Lower Chi took it on the chin.
Also known as Gaspariville, Lower Chi was described by its neighbors as having “too much crime and drugs, congested, dirty, too urban, unkempt, noisy, a lot of poverty and Section 8 housing, economically depressed, dirty oil refineries nearby, poor housing, a lot of people on welfare, and as a ghetto.”
So last night, Upper Chi political leaders went down to a public meeting in Lower Chi and abjectly apologized for their residents' opinions.
Rocco Gaspari gracefully accepted the "We're Sorry" on behalf of his community.
“There was a mistake made and this is a lesson that everyone needs to learn,” Gaspari said. “It was a human error and that’s what we were taught, that when we make a mistake we have to own up to it. We know there were some things out of your control. Linwood, Marcus Hook, Trainer and Boothwyn should never have wedges put in between them. You being here tonight puts this thing to rest. I accept your apology and this is the end of it.”As for bringing an end to the crime, drugs, and welfare, etc., they're working on it.
