    This young man is a poster of how African American men in Chicago are systematically unemployed and involved in stick ups, shoot outs and other anti- social community destabilizing criminal activities for survival. This past summer/fall in Chicago, as a so-called sanctuary city, we witnessed undocument, non-english speaking Hispanics had been placed on street side walk repaving jobs in Bronzeville, thereby taking those jobs with support of the city administration from indeginous African American males!

    These are planned regentrification tactics.....

    Higher RE taxes, higher water bills, new taxes, proposed higher state income taxes, meanwhile the state and the city are bankrupt. It's not like this everywhere, is it? As your RE taxes go up, the value of your home goes down. As other taxes go up, the value of your paycheck goes down. City and state employees making far more than average household income is unfair to the vast majority of the real middle and working class families.

  • There's a real problem with cook county tax assessment process. They over appraise your property then when you appeal it with a recent appraisal ,they come back with a higher value than the appraisal.
