Tons of people killed in Chicago this weekend and no national media attention? 2 dead in airliner crash and that is covered wall to wall...... What is wrong with Chicago's population?

Chitcago's population is black. The nation doesn't care about the black race. No coverage. No care.

Maybe when it becomes 70 killed and 12 wounded the media and obama,sharpton,jackson rachel maddow,mika brizynski, etc. etc. will get involved. Then again,that would prove that they are animals.

I am sick and tired of these racist comments. Also there needs to be affirmative action in the NHL. Not enough men of color are being given the opportunity to earn the $$$$$$.

I think it has already been well established that they are animals; this story proves that they are animals that can't shoot worth a damn!

what's wrong? Surly you jest?
The Chicago press, city hall, city, county & state police are all deaf, blind,dumb and on the take,being paid off.
But Chicago citizens ask for this government by voting for what they have dysfunctional corrupt government.
Hope they choke on those welfare checks.
can't wait to see Chicago in bankruptcy court.

Quite possibly because there are no good black hockey players. White people earn their way. Blacks expect everything to be given to them.
