Mar 15, 2013 | Posted by: roboblogger | Full story: wbez.org

Out of all the violent crimes that take place in Chicago each year , tragedies involving young innocents like Hadiya Pendleton and Jonylah Watkins are always the ones that affect us the most.

so what about the other 500 plus black people shot killed by black drug gangs in Chicago in 2012??

or the several thousand black peoples killed by black people on the south side of da city in the past five years. are those all tragedies also?

did ya notice no one in da black community, city, county, state or federal law enforcement, new media, cares or paid attention to the whole sale murders in Chicago, why is that??

Where is big mouth al notso starpton, the naacp,
congressional negro caucus, PETA, the PTA, The CTA, the KKK no one is in this case??

so it must not be a tragedy as you describe.

perhaps its a tragedy in your own mind alone???
