When in Toronto last week I spoke with a few Canadians who said they absolutely loved Chicago and felt safer walking around there than they did in Toronto. The violence is in the South Side and is gang related.At least six people were killed and 27 others wounded in weekend gun violence across Chicago.
A 7-year-old boy was shot Sunday night while walking his bicycle up the steps of his family's home around 9 p.m.
No one is talking about this little boy's death. But a troubled teen's tragic death in Sanford because of mistaken identity resulted in outcries, rallies, and the District of Attorney becoming involved.
Is it okay if blacks kill black children in Chicago? Would it have been okay if a black teen was tragically killed by a Hispanic in Chicago? Would we have even known his name?
Isn't anyone on the left disturbed by the eerie silence coming from the black community when hundreds of young black people are dead in Chicago? The former district of Senator Obama?
What the heck is going on?
What do you think can be done about it? Perhaps they'll eventually kill each other off. Gangs have been around long before President Obama and they'll be around after them. Why the concern now? Because they're black and so is he? You think he can wave a magic wand and make the gangs disappear?
Why are you still trying to justify the murder of Trayvon Martin?
