awww quit your whining already.

gun shots ring out in da hood almost every day cause the Chicago police is really busy writing parking tickets eating them donuts and drinking that coffee so they don't have time to go to the hood take the guns drugs off the streets.

so face reality or move to Detroit oh wait I forgot they have black drug gangs with guns also and Detroit is bankrupt and Chicago may be in court soon also

The organizers are so proud of Chicago Public School system record high graduation rate in 2012-2013 of 65.4%(privately funded Charter schools being the responsible partner for that number) that they're willing to disregard the violence that will kill 45-50 of the children that were enjoying the parade over the next school year!
