    I did Not read that article.
    And, I do not see the connection between that south side community decades ago (or even the Hyde Park housing pressures now); with the Humboldt Park deaths I was responding to on this thread.

    I get that you and I were looking at different deaths.
    I get that my white middle class north side perspective is far from the whole reparations issue.
    And, I get that more than a century of economic & cultural inequality, injustace, ect has set the stage for many of the ills plaguing Chicago.
    But- I am still not seeing the cause & effect in the way that you do.
    I appreciate the value of your perspective; but it is not my lens for the situations I wrestle with in Humboldt Park.
