  • Bronzeville Curmudgeon Bronzeville Conservator

    This is spatial deconcentration genocide on lower and moderate income African Americans by the University of Chicago!

  • Bronzeville Curmudgeon Bronzeville Conservator

    No one else is investigating the role that the University of Chicago is playing (spatial deconcentration), in the planned disenfranchisement and removal of lower and moderate income African Americans from prime real estate in Bronzeville and the broader south lakefront region of Chicago!

  • Bronzeville Curmudgeon Bronzeville Conservator

    The white gentrifyers moving rapidly into Bronzeville are not being shot at as they walk their dogs at all hours of day and night. It also is like young black shooters are reaching over and around the new white gentry to murder disadvantaged black male youth and anybody else who happens to be African American! Clearly for black people it is not safe to walk on the streets of Bronzeville!

  • I read a story, @ DNA Info, that a big shot from the ACLU, Colleen Connell, is upset about traffic problems in her neighborhood around Montrose and Manor. It appears that she is not happy that cyclists and vehicles are going down her street by the river.

    The rest of the City has real concerns about the misguided policy that the ACLU is championing that has led to the police being handcuffed that contributes to the continuing slaughter.

    She needs to get her priorities right!
