Racial Inequality is the Root of Violent Crime in Chicago

There are 5 comments on the Gapers Block story from Jul 16, 2014, titled Racial Inequality is the Root of Violent Crime in Chicago. In it, Gapers Block reports that:

Over this Fourth of July weekend in Chicago, 84 people were shot and 16 killed. Over 1,000 people have been shot in the city since the beginning of the year, and almost all of them were black and Latino men under the age of 35. Shedding light on these numbers is important, but numbers on their own are not enough.

Where are the numbers on the race of those doing the shooting? This is an inflammatory article. Why do we always resort to blaming things on race when there are so many other factors. Family? Community?
reality is a crutch

But no one on the planet surface gives a big fat rats rear end how many n word people are shot killed or wounded by the out of control goofy n word or illegal immigrant drug dealing street gang of Chicago.

N word people are just as dumb as the suni vs shiete moron muslims who have been killing their own people for a thousand years over leader ship of the dysfunctional religion.

N word people been shooting other n word people in Chicago since the 70's. wonder how many n word people been killed by other moron n word people in Chicago.

Chicago police must know they have thousands of unsolved un investigated gun homicides of blacks in da hood and no one cares.

So to muslims and goofy out of control n word people I say keep up the good work keep on shooting killing and wounding your own people.

that's one way to reduce the welfare rolls in Chicago.

tell Jessie fillmypocketsfirst Jackson and al notso Sharpton,& obozo I think they are out of touch with reality.
