revised my thinking, Chicago south side may not be salvaged after all.

50 or so years of blacks killing blacks has introduced and da community has accepted a mind set in the hood that crime, shooting, killing, drug sales, extended generations on welfare with no hope no future are a part of the culture, part of a way life on the south side of Chicago . the way life is suppose to be.

I believe the people on the south side just don't know life could be different. which is too bad.

I saw this in in the USAF in the 60's , kids from any intercity or the deep south were surprised and amazed to see how the rest of the world lived because they had never been any where or experienced life anywhere except where they were born.

Just wondering how many thousands of black people have been shot , killed, wounded by other black people on the south side of the city in the past 50 years??

bet the number is really high. look it up and get back to me.

official Chicago, state ,county authorities , the black .
community at large has pretty much just given up on the south side of da city.

they accept things the way they are, they don't believe the south side is capable of change or becoming a normal community.

My thinking is being that the community on the south side of the city, plus official Chicago , all accept the community as it is, dysfunctional perhaps it can't be saved , changed, salvaged.

gone beyond the break point. the point of being salvaged. kind of like Detroit??

After third and fourth thought my second thought was accurate and succinct as usual.

thirty or more years of historical data has clearly demonstrated da population of da south side of Chicago has given up on themselves and da city.

they accept the dysfunctional south side as fact unchangeable fact.

too bad too sad the south side was a great part vibrant of the city for 200 years.
