You have a point. The Chicago press tok heat a couple years ago about the heavy reporting when cute white girls were missing or ran away but not when it was a black kid. The papers changed. Now you see articles reporting kids from all ethnicity who are missing etc.
There is more violence in the black community and that results in sensory overload. It shouldn't, but it does. I don't think that overload is because of race so much as the sheer numbers of incidents- volume if you will.
My theory on the lack of outrage about the 6 month old who was shot is that her father was the intended target and he was a gang banger. The general feeling is that while she certainly did not deserve it, the dad did. Not good. Not right, but not racist either.
ya gotta get out of the Chicago area more often see the rest of America to see how dysfunctional the south side of the city has become.
My business takes me to many cities in the country. NO city in the country has anywhere near the numbers of homicides by gun shot as Chicago does. over five hundred black people killed by black people in 2012, several thousand black people shot killed over the past five years by black people.
My question is and remains how can this level of murder go unnoticed, unreported, uninvestigated for so long by the national media???
market gets bombed in the middle east and poof you have photos, reporters on the scene interviewing surviving victims.
one black kid gets shot killed in florida and al notso Sharpton in there 24/7 babbling in front of tv cameras about justice.
but hundreds killed in Chicago and silence on the issue or the complete lack of local or national coverage?? no community demands for the county, state or federal government to come in and quell the violence that the city police seem unwilling or unable to stop???
look around Illinois, or any city ,state in the country, this high volume murder nonsense isn't happening anywhere else but Chicago, why is that??
only Syria and some middle eastern cities have death levels this high but they are at war.
we can walk in central park or harlem in NYC NY 24 7 can you do that on the south side of Chicago?? if not why not?
cause the people of the city just accept what's going on as normal.
but here's news flash ,it ain't normal not even close.
if that's your idea of normal or acceptable way of life I feel sorry for you.
