Gun violence in Chicago: Black leaders convene ‘emergency summit’
Both President Obama and first lady Michelle Obama have come home to Chicago to talk about youth and gun violence and to promote the administration’s gun control efforts. The first lady attended the funeral of Hadiya Pendleton, a 15-year-old majorette who was shot and killed a week after she performed in President Obama’s second inaugural parade. Obama said she saw herself in the dead African-American teen from the city’s south side:“Hadiya’s family was just like mine,” she said.“Hadiya Pendleton was me, and I was her.”
Across the country, from New Orleans to Detroit, activists and politicians have sought to curb the day-to-day gun play that has engulfed so many neighborhoods. In Chicago, police stepped up their efforts by shifting personnel to targeted neighborhoods. The city boasted a 24% decline in murders from last year, with some crediting the new policing strategy and others a cooler than normal spring. But as summer in the city heats up, so has gun violence. As of this Wednesday, there have been 226 murders in Chicago, down from 299 a year ago at this time, according to Chicago police. Shootings are also down this year, from 1,346 last year at this time to 1,020.

Who's idea was it to talk to gangbangers about gun control? Wouldn't it be better to discuss the family unit, sanctity of human life (not talking about abortion) and family values

That's it for me for a while.

Can only take liberals' insults as an excuse for intelligent discourse in spurts.

It's been a long "spurt" today.

Ciao.

Why did the libertarian chicken cross the road?

According to the chicken...
"None of your fucking business. Am I being detained?"

Any news from the investigation of the unconstitutional activities of the NSA? I haven't heard any news about Snowden since Putin bitch-slapped Obama over that.

You'd think Obama would just stop meeting with someone who bitch-slaps him all around the room every time they meet.

Communist Party USA, dupe. They have so much power, a militant anti-American terrorist like William Ayers can teach in a goddam university here today. You'd think he'd be spending his entire life in Leavenworth.
Almost always, women who posed for porno pictures during that era were prostitutes. It is possible that Ann Dunham wasn't a prostitute, though. It's also possible for someone to graduate from Dental school and not be a dentist.
Yes, Obama is definitely laughing at us. He's a complete fraud, and he's in the White House.
Now, why do the Obama lawyers say and do anything to avoid submitting that "birth certificate" as evidence?
Tell us about that.
How about you tell us about it, using fact as your principle! That's too much to ask from a habitual elaborater. It's almost like you have dyslexia. Everything you present is some kind of conspiracy theory. Give us the facts, not your opinion!

He consorted with & was trained by a known Communist fighter from Cuba.
At Harvard, he started the Latino Harvard LawReview, an obvious racist organization designed to ban whites
How did he afford Harvard? Who paid for his education. Did Castro as a way of thinking his father for helping him take over Cuba? OMG!
His father came to the US with a 100 dollar bill sewn into his underwear inspiring the future underwear bomber terrorist.
His mother was a known slut & the liberal socialist Robin Williams is his real father - did you see the resemblance?
LOL! Very clever Dave.

every point valid.

i'm starting a Cruz birther site. just like WND, you have to buy at least 2 of the DVDs that i'll be producing about 'creepy' Ted to be part of the club. i'll discount the price for all Topix liberal commies. 2 for $20. though unlike WND...i won't be spending it on hallucinogenics.

Just don't throw them at Homer. Pretty sure he'd be safe in the Islamic world since he's not gay. And he probably wouldn't claim to be a Christian either who love gays in spite of their orientation.

Unless you know of one besides this one.

Guess you just can't help yourself with the racist insults. But, then again, you are a true blue liberal.

Yes, I do look like my father. And my mother too. Don't you?

Have fun calling other people racists for a while, Lily.

I'll be back soon enough.

Sen. Ted Cruz (R) wasn't born in the United States, but that hasn't stopped the junior Texas senator from courting a possible presidential bid. A CNN report investigates his eligibility to hold the office. "My mother was born in Wilmington, Delaware. She's a U.S. citizen, so I'm a U.S. citizen," Cruz told ABC News in July. "I'm not going to engage in a legal debate. The facts are clear." Asked Sunday if Cruz was eligible, prominent birther Donald Trump said, "Perhaps not."

The only place I never see normal black folks represented is in the increasingly popular films (and reality shows and music) being masqueraded as indicative of the Black Experience. A troubling stream of craven and depraved sociopaths and psychotics haunt the environs of black entertainment. The doom these figures inflict upon their familiars is taken for granted as a natural condition of our people.

These images and messages do not represent the predominant experiences and nature of my people — and I, for one, want it as widely known as possible that I reject them wholesale.

I take no part with, nor give any corner to, those who keep us in as a function of these images. I reject the reduction of the traumatized but decent people I know as marginalized slaves and menials. Equally bankrupt are the media offerings that show us as sanitized and shallow beyond recognition — devoid of serious concerns outside of those that are worthy of soap-opera treatment…

With greater frequency black filmmakers are saying terrible things about the inhabitants of Black America. While viewing a black film of the recent past (choose your own), I saw black women weeping their eyes out, scene after scene, abused and victimized by black men in a relentless parade of misery. What joy, I wondered, is to be found in this? Even in pathos, of course there is release. But surely there is a difference between pathos and sadomasochism.

Ironically, very little of artistic merit or craft is to be found in the dramatically bereft constructions of the other variety of black movie. Many of these projects feature very talented and attractive casts, slick direction, and high production values. The subject matter is seldom of great ambition or depth. They are designed to please the broadest possible demographic of black ticket buyers. Most of this work is innocent and innocuous enough, and thank goodness for this alternative. That stipulated, it would be less than honest to point to but a small few of these as artistically satisfying.

…And thank God there are still those who use the mediums available to them to create great art. To them belongs the future, should they only take the initiative to reclaim the present. And, please God, in reclaiming the idea of “black.”

After all, everything cool and edgy in our collective experience now is said to be the new version of black.

Frankly, I’d settle for the old kind. It beats the heck out of sitting chained up in a cave.
