Such a sweet girl!! I remember seeing her and talking to her when she was just a little girl. I remember when she first started College and how excited she was. Such a loss!! I was saddened to hear about her mom as well. Jeff and Brian are such great brothers they must be so sad. I know they will be great Uncles to those boys.

That's the exact same thing I wonder when you ask what race people are.

In the case of what Hospital , the person asking is curious and it's very possible that he wants to know so he can avoid that hospital .

Truth is people die under the care of good doctors and at good hospitals , no matter what anyone tells you .

Thank You Don, that is why I asked. It just takes a little common sense.

I ask what race because if it's a black or hispanic it gives their race a bad rap.
Here's an example:
If a white Berwyn home owner moves out of Berwyn because he doesn't like how the area is changing.
Now where he moves he is welcomed , but he will tell stories of Berwyn and when someone is selling their home they will not sell to a Mexican.
Because they don't want that area to turn like Berwyn. Kinda like when I moved into Berwyn I was not like you stereotype hispanic and my white neighbors never had to call the cops on me or break my windows so I would move.

Hispanics only that are gang members do that and they shoot at other gang members. But they miss and hit innocent bystanders. I guess you haven't read enough of my posts to know that I am very much against gang-bangers. Even though 97% of them happen to be my race. I don't defend based on race, because that would be racist!

Your comment seems to be a little self-depricating claiming that 97% of gang bangers are your own race. Last I knew, gang-bangers were of every race and heritage.

It is unusual to die from childbirth unless a woman has a pre-existing condition.

What was her pre-existing condition, and why did she not get an abortion?

I said this in another thread. Exactly what I'm thinking. I doubt he has the guts to hurt someone in real life but anyone can snap. Scary stuff.

I can't believe that even THIS thread about a poor deceased teacher became a forum for rico's racist rants. This is one sick puppy. It's borderline criminal that Topix lets this go on unmoderated if you ask me.

I'm afraid we're actually empowering him by responding though. He should from now on be ignored.

Rico has to moderate himself , I know that's hard for him but every thread opened that he replies to get's out of hand.

I submitted this story because it has significant value to the Cicero-Berwyn Topix community , if anyone hasn't noticed .... these threads appear in Cicero , Riverside , and Westchester among others .

I unknowingly instigated Rico on this one because he used the term " What does it matter " when responding to the question of which hospital she passed away at , and I challenged him on the fact that he always ask's what race a person is , had I known that he was going to rant about the same stuff over and over again I would have kept silent.

I do ask Rico to please , and especially with a delicate thread like this one where replies can't be edited out to stay on the subject if he wishes to respond , this happens often and I know that his replies are often for argument sake such as the D'Andreas thread where his 1st comment is why don't they open a Mexican store , that is not needed and instigating for a response.

Exactly what I was thinking. It is uncommon in this day in age.

So does anybody know more of this story or knew her personally? Pre-existing conditions? hospital? doctor?

You should cut and paste this and send it to the moderators, who should delete all of his posts and ban him for life. He's not going to moderate himself. This guy is getting way, way out of hand Jayelem.

Isn't that what the Nazi's did to the Jews censorship?
Isn't that what some collage students do when a school has a speaker guest that has a point of view which can prove the liberal side to look bad?

I think it's about time for you to shut your mouth and out of respect for the teacher that this thread Should be about. People like you are an embarassment to the disadvantaged minority children she dedicated her life to teach.
