5:03 am
country, on the front cover of every single paper and it is a professor from our area in direction hole tweeted out something fairly explosive over the weekend you can, talking about white genocide. >> we know university has condemned those tweets but educator is not backing down. our dave kinchen is on this one at drexel's campus, dave. >> reporter: this was not in the lesson plan here as the university has had to deal with this pr situation of sorts with the whole country talking about this tweet that came out over the christmas weekend. philly voice did a screen grab of one of the tweets we're talking about here, associate professor george ciccariello mayor tweeted all i want for christmas is white genocide. you can see that the tweet and the story itself has gone viral, and now the professor is white, and called the tweet satire designed to mock white supremacy. he actually teaches race and issues of class, and matters of that sorts, now students we ran into gave us some mixed
5:04 am
reaction. >> going to drexel, i have always felt welcome and everybody was flexible to anybody else. i never tell a race issue or i never came across such a thing , so i just, i just don't think that it would directly represent drexel's standing on any issue. >> it is hard to necessity for certain that someone is being satyrical in such a conn strain format but i understand where he is coming from. i think a lot of whites are very complacent about white supremacy and i think he was right to make a point about it >> reporter: 140 characters in twitter don't often allow for elaboration so in an e-mail to fox 29 ciccariello mayor said he sent a tweet about a imagery concept white again site to those who haven't done their research white genocide is an idea invent by white supremacists. the is a a figment of the
5:05 am
racist imagination and it should be mocked and i'm glad to have mocked it. drexel university released a statement, calling the comment s utterly reprehensible , saying they do not represent the values, of the university, and a meeting between the professor and the university will take place at some point likely this week about the matter and while the doctor did say also in his statement that he, his speech is protect, he also protect his tweets. you can in longer see his tweets on his feed at this time. back to you karen and thomas. >> we will continue to stay on top of it, thanks, dave. this morning a family is leading for answers in the senseless killing of the south philadelphia grocery store owner. >> who would want to kill this 81 year-old shop owner, a great grandmother, it doesn't seem like there is any motive at all, it doesn't make any sense at all. let get right out to steve keeley to explain exactly what we know, steve. >> reporter: i have only rots in two places where i live now in moorestown and here on
5:06 am
south sixth street. i lived eight blocks from here and walk past here quite a bit , back from 1999 to 2004. somebody walk up these steps, and then walk down these steps just before and after they shot ape killed marie buck. this is marie's grocery you can see her sign blowing in the wind. on those very steps that killer walk up and down, you can see are now filled with flowers, candles, and the most wonderful message you will ever read about anybody. the those messages tell you all you need to know about marie buck, what they don't tell you unfortunately is why someone would want to kill her we just talk to the guys who pick up her garbage for last few years and they just told us how wonderful she was, she would be up even this early when they would come by and she made sure that they were fed, and if it was hot out they had cool drinks. amazing story after amazing story you will hear about this woman. the worst story though christmas eve, just after
5:07 am
opening which she did at 7:00 promptly every day somebody walk in here between 8:30 and nine and for some reason shot at her to death and shot her repeat thely at least a dozen times according to her family. >> i have seen people that over the years that we grew up , helping in the store ourselves is. we were behind the counter where this person took her life. it is inconceivable because she just always had a big smile help you walk in the door, what can i help you with , and joking with you, and when you see it is something that i always knew. i don't have to see that memorial that everybody is leaving. i appreciate it. it just rearms what i know. she treated you like tamly. my grandfather always thought you are just a customer. you more than just a customer
5:08 am
were you family. you came in, you bought, you supported her, in her living, and she supported you right back with whatever you need that she could help you with. >> reporter: well, no surveillance video cameras, she thought that she never needed them her family said but as we come back here live, you can see it wasn't completely angelic around here because somebody with nothing better to do, a few times put graffiti on both heroin owes on the titan street side and you can see perfect cellar doors. that gives you a sense maybe she could have used some surveillance just to catch person who had nothing better to to then to deface a wonderful corner store that was like a kitchen, as she was like a mother to this community in south philadelphia, for 44 years. until somebody ended that for no reason at all, it seems on christmas eve. any day to do that would be bad, but as john mcnesby asks who does this this on
