The rich white kids are sympathetic symbols that can advance his agenda for expanding government control over the people.<quoted text>
It really doesn't matter how the youth in Chicago (and other areas) are killing each other off. Using guns, beating each other with daisies, dragging each other behind packs of enraged feral sled cats. The point is, as you know, the fact that while Obama is oh so concerned about a school shooting in a nice white neighborhood in New England or Colorado, he seems to turn a blind eye to the black on black violence that accounted for so many dead or maimed youths in Chicago. Maybe it's because it would mean acknowledging the abject failure of black leaders like Jackson and Sharpton and even himself.
The dead poor black kids are a symbol of failed culture.
THAT is why Obama does not address the 500+ murders in Chicago.
