Found at 49th and Baltimore… Not a huge fan that this playfully (I hope) seems to imply violence against anyone, but I get the sentiment and, more or less, like it.
If you’re asking, what’s Bro Culture? Let me try and explain… From my understanding, it can actually refer to a bunch of different groups specifically, but it mostly it refers to middle/upper-middle class straight, usually white, males aging from about 18-26 who demonstrate underlining (or otherwise) misogynistic, racist and/or homophobic attitudes, aside from being rather self-centered and egotistical. Men who, generally speaking, lack empathy and have had very little exposure to people outside of their upbringing. Many wear popped-collar Polos and think that women walking down the street love to hear complements yelled at them.
Again though, that’s my written-at-3:30am definition, so please feel free to throw your two cents in below…

Left glove found in Northern Liberties, and right glove in North Philly. Wonder who’s installing these ‘peace’ gloves around the city/and why? Hhmm…
With a little help from Tim Gibbons (of Philly’s wheatpaste doily fame,) kids from the Congreso North Star After-School Program, a kindergarten through 8th grade after-school program in North Philly, have just installed their ‘Big Picture’ wheatpaste photo project at American and Somerset streets. The mission statement of which proudly promoting: “Peace in our schools, peace in our city, peace in our world!”
