  • Bronzeville Curmudgeon Bronzeville Conservator

    Two recent shootings in the past 24 hours, of young African American men in the 4th Ward, where Martin Luther King high school student Hydia Pendleton was shot down in the street adjacent to Loraine Hansberry Park on 44th & Lake Park in the 4th Ward!!!

    Sounds like escalating spatial deconcentration genocide, being perpetrated against lower and moderate income African Americans designed to destabilize and displace lower and moderate income African Americans from prime real estate on the south lakefront region of Chicago!!!

  • Bronzeville Curmudgeon Bronzeville Conservator

    PS, the young 19 year old blackman who was just shot in his nuts, passed away!

    Seriously, What are all of you so-called middle class Negro and almost Caucasian politicians running in the 4th Ward Aldermanic election, going to do to stop the wanton murder of African American youth in the 4th Ward, which supports the land clearance strategy of the University of Chicago to systematically destabilize and remove lower and moderate income African Americans from Bronzeville!!!

    Spatial deconsentration!!!
