Chicago's growing racial gap in child poverty

Full story: Chicago Reader

I noted recently that more than one in three Chicago children are living in poverty, according to newly published census data.

which begs the question " how and why do black voters keep voting for the same lame old democrats every election??

Blacks have been voting for democrats since the 60's and nothing has gotten better for the black community.

Come on man it isn't going to change in Chicago until you vote all new people faces, parties into office.

Or you can keep on doing what you have been doing for 50 years??

Hey Chicago how's that great voting track record working for ya???

blacks reap what they sow. when 80% of them have babies out of wedlock and pretty much all the time - they and their kids will be poor.
Personally, I am beyond caring.

I think the main reason the "racial gap" is increasing is due to some moving out while others remain.

More productive people leaving -> less tax revenues -> higher taxes -> more productive people leaving -> even LESS tax revenue -> higher property taxes -> more people leaving -> teachers striking to demand more money -> higher city expenses ->shifting of money from the poor to the pension coffers of the teachers -> more poor people..

Where is Obama? Oh that's right, I guess he is still looking around for the teleprompter he appears to have lost.

Chicago sets a perfect example of what happens when voting for democrats yet still over half of Americans are too stupid to grasp this.
