    Thank you to the person that wrote: "I believe the violence is a direct result of a deliberate, well thought out conspiracy. Chicago's government is deliberately fostering an environment of oppression in the African American communities within Chicago. Chicago is the most segregated Metropolis in the U S.
    Some facts:
    32% of Chicago is Black
    2% of city contracts went to Black business.
    90% of the public schools closed or privatized were Black communities
    0% were predominately white schools.
    0% of guns and munition manufacturers are black
    0% percent of poppy fields are owned by blacks.
    Overwhelming majority of drug related homocides were committed by blacks. None of these resources are controlled by Black People, yet the life enhancing resources are being taken from the Black community by those that control them. And the life destructive resources are being doubled down in the Black community by those whom control them. The conspiracy is between those who control the resources. AMEN!!!

    Thank you to "Thatblows"!!! I am tired of it... I am starting a website called :STOP DOING THE JOB FOR THEM"

    What if there was a black Hitler??? And what if he was gassing all of the white people downtown in their high rises? Then my friends... we would be EVEN, as the black male body count just climbed higher.
