Not all criminals are black. They come in all races. And Chicago is a massively violent city.

Yes I agree. Not all blacks are criminals. According to the news every time I hear about a shooting they claim they are honor roll students. I think the term honor roll student really means sh*th#%d. And yes white people are also guilty they make up about 6% of all violent crimes. So in other words only a very small percentage of honor roll students are law abiding. They really are the downfall of mankind. In their eyes it always someone else's fault and someone else's responsibility.

You want the answer to "RACIAL PROFILING"? Read it and then, Thank your Government. Whites are killed by Blacks at a rate of 18 X 1 over Blacks killed by whites. They kill THEMSELVES at a rate that is OFF THE CHARTS. A Black female is 20 x more likely to be raped by a Black male, 7 X more like to be assaulted by a Black person, 40 X more likely to be murdered by a Black person if you are black and 120 X MORE LIKELY to be ROBBED by a Black person. GET THE PICTURE?? IF you ARE profiled, IT IS justified by Your own actions. 75% of VIOLENT crimes on whites are committed by BLACKS.. LET THAT SINK IN.. Blacks are only 13% of the population, whites are WELL OVER 60%.. YOU do the math and see who the REAL devil is by race.. ON TOP OF THAT, 38% of the people in this nation on Welfare are black / 39% white, yet blacks comprise only 13% of the population. GETS EVEN BETTER. Whites pay 83% of the FEDERAL INCOME TAX that goes to support welfare while blacks only pay 7-8%. White America, WE are the new slave.. Heck WE are being raped, robbed, AND MURDERED while these people sit at home make babies off Tax Payers money.. Then they have the NERVE TO talk about how they HATE the white man? ARE YOU KIDDING ME?

it is interesting to note that most of the gun related homicides that occur in Chicago in the past 25 years have been on the south side of the city in the black Hispanic communities and usually involve blacks on black violence.

You don't see Lithuanians or other peoples around Chicago killing each other in large numbers as do the folks on the south side of da city.

yet the attorney general , state , county or city police the FBI the KKK., NAACP, urban league, the PTA or PETA have not launched a full scale civil rights investigation into the large numbers of blacks killed by blacks.

In fact no one has launched any thing of interest on this subject why is that?

heck even al notso Sharpton has been silent on the killings in Chicago?

Please check your facts on the rates and locations of gun related crimes in da city.

East of Cicero Avenue, practically almost every single square block south of Lawrence Avenue (4800 north), including Downtown, is endless, violent ghetto, all the way down to the Will County Border/Steger Road/23100 south. And not only are numerous south suburbs like Harvey, Chicago Heights, Ford Heights, Dolton, Homewood, Lynwood, and such also part of that massive ghetto, but in fact some of them even have gang bangers in their Mayor's office!

That maybe true. But to constantly obsess about it is unecesary .

Think someone who's black and not like that needs to constantly hear it from some nutcase like you.

Criminals shooting criminals. Not one misuse of a firearm since concealed carry permits were issued to law abiding citizens. I think Tom Dart & McCarthy implied that we would cause more problems then criminals.

MikeTouhy, It's not obsession. It's preparing, a warning for what is here and what is happening. Ever since over 95% of B I rentals have turned ghetto section 8, crime in B I has gone way up. I am looking forward to getting my conceal and carry permit.

THE 10 BIG LIES PEOPLE TELL ABOUT POVERTY IN AMERICA
People have a lot of misconceptions about poverty in the United Staes, but thankfully Mother Jones compiled a list of ten big ones that get repeated a lot and debunked them.
1. Single Moms Are The Problem
"Only 9 percent of low-income, urban moms have been single throughout their child's first five years. Thirty-five percent were married to, or in a relationship with, the child's father for that entire time."
2. Absent Dads Are The Problem
"Sixty percent of low-income dads see at least one of their children daily. Another 16 percent see their children weekly."
3. Black Dads Are The Problem
"Among men who don't live with their children, black fathers are more likely than white or Hispanic dads to have a daily presence in their kids' lives."
4. Poor people are lazy
"In 2004, there was at least one adult with a job in 60 percent of families on food stamps that had both kids and a nondisabled, working-age adult."
5. If You're Not Officially Poor, You're Doing Okay
"The federal poverty line for a family of two parents and two children in 2012 was $23,283. Basic needs cost at least twice that in 615 of America's cities and regions."
6. Go To College, Get Out Of Poverty
"In 2012, about 1.1 million people who made less than $25,000 a year, worked full time, and were heads of household had a bachelor's degree."
7. We're Winning The War On Poverty
"The number of households with children living on less than $2 a day per person has grown 160 percent since 1996, to 1.65 million families in 2011."
8. The Days Of Old Ladies Eating Cat Food Are Over
"The share of elderly single women living in extreme poverty jumped 31 percent from 2011 to 2012."
9. The Homeless Are Drunk Street People
"One in 45 kids in the United States experiences homelessness each year. In New York City alone, 22,000 children are homeless."
10. Handouts Are Bankrupting Us
"In 2012, total welfare funding was 0.47 percent of the federal budget."

Unfortunately in Chicago, criminals don't just shoot other criminals, they (especially the flash mobs) also shoot innocent people on purpose.

Mother Jones, " POVERTY IN AMERICA ? " There are no poor people in America. You must have America confused with a third world Contry. How can you be poor when you can receive Wefare, Food Stamps, Free Housing,( Section 8 ) Free Medical, Free School, Free Phone, and have Most of your Utilities Paid ? And by the way. Thank your Tax Payers.

Yes people do need to obsess about this. These animals are killing innocents at astronomical rates. If it isn't on your mind then u live in your liberal yuppie house with outside security and adt. Let's face facts. These animals need to be dealt with. Oh and now conceal carry plays into affect. And I got mine. So Tyrone and bumpus better watch out. You will not fuck with me any longer. Ole banjo lips better be cautious.
